Well it was confirmed. Little man has an eye infection..Now tell me how a 2 week old infant who has barely left the house gets an eye infection...Its crazy all the little things babies can get. Ben got some eye drops and his eyes are already looking better. All is good for the moment.
At 2 weeks Ben weighs 7 pounds 4 oz and is 19 3/4 inches long. Thats up from last friday he weighed 6 pounds 10 oz and was still 19 1/2 inches long. I can;t believe he has grown so much in a week. In another blink he will be 5 getting on the school bus...
In other news have I told you about my weight loss? Last week when I had Ben at the dr for his 1 week check up I got on the scale and I lost all 20 pounds I had gained for the pregnancy...Now I just have to motivate myself to lose the extra weight I was trying to loss before...But I have about another 4-5 weeks to motivate myself on that topic..
Update on the nursing- well I am back to the cracked sore nipples, about the same as last week. I don't want to say that I'm giving up yet, but I think I am there mentally..I just have to physically prepare myself that I will not be nursing much longer..I'm in to much pain to enjoy Ben and thats not fair to him or to me, this should be a great time and I cringe when he wakes up to feed, and again thats not fair to either of us.
On a brighter note, Chris and I did have Ben sleeping in the bassinet in our room and Ben was starting to be classified as "not a good sleeper", last night I decided to put Ben in his own room in his crib and wouldn't ya know he slept about 6 hours waking only once to eat and then slept another 6 hours waking at 8 this morning..I guess he didn't like sleeping in mommy and daddys room..He likes his privacy :)
