V-day and an update

Well Hannah has had her first V-Day and it went off without a hitch. She got Daddy a "Worlds Greatest Daddy" Beer Mug and a big bouquet of balloons and a Teddy bear from Grandma and Grandpa F and Auntie Toad. Chris got a vise that he wanted and he bought us matching rings. A simple Titanium band... Finally an affordable metal that has no nickel in it that I can wear all the time. I am pretty sure that it will piss a certain person off that we are wearing rings without a wedding but screw him! Anyone who knows us knows that we do things all ass backwards! I am amazed at how light titanium is... It doesn't even feel like metal... I now understand why airplanes and top of the line mountain bikes are made of it.

Hannah has not been sleeping for shit! Nothing new there, so I finally went to my doctor, thinking I have PPD but she thinks I am just exhausted, so she recommended a few things. First off she thinks maybe the reason that Hannah is not sleeping is because she is hungry so she recommended a bottle of half breast milk half formula before bed and cereal in the morning once her system gets used to the formula. Well I tried the formula last night and all I have to say is UGH! She was up every 30 minutes screaming for 3 hours and then I think she finally slept, but I am not sure since Chris came home early from work and took baby watch to let me sleep. I got up with her around 6 and she has been up ever since. This is exactly what happened with cereal. I think my poor little girl has a sensitive tummy. I am at a loss. I am gonna try it again tonight if the results are the same then I am defiantly not going to put her through that again. Alas exhaustion is the parents call signs!

Well here are a some new pics for your viewing pleasure... Hannah had Bananas yesterday :)

More new pics on Flicker Enjoy !

When I was breastfeeding, I had to do that with Evan because he was hungry ALL THE TIME! I had him on a dairy formula for a little while but he was so crampy and it really made life miserable. I also thought I had PPD but I too, was exhausted and stressed out. My Dr. recommended at Soy based formula for now because his tummy seems to be sensitive too. We are using Isomil. It is a bit more expensive than some of the dairy formulas but life has been SO much easier on it. Within the first 2 days he was much happier and sleeping all through the night..and he's 3.5 months old! Good luck with everything. It will all work out, I'm sure!
