Gosh, it's really hard to keep up to date on posts with a newborn baby hangin' around! Thankfully we had our wonderful friend, Lisa, visit us over the weekend, which gave us that extra set of hands that we desperately needed. Lisa was so good with Lilly and is a natural Mommy. I can't wait for God to bless her and her husband with their much-deserved miracle. While she was here I finally got to try my hand at the new Wii Matt's parents gave us for Christmas. It was so fun! I pretty much stink at every game, but I'm thinking as Lilly's naps get a little longer I might get some good practice time in:)
My Aunt Pam came yesterday to help me out while Matt was gone. He had meetings all day and didn't get home until 11pm, plus Lilly had a doctor's appt. to discuss her most recent Reflux issues, so having her here to lend a hand was a blessing. And did I mention that Matt did the 2am feeding, while Aunt Pam did the 5am... which meant I slept from about 11:30 to 7:45am??? I got up a couple times to get the bottles ready, but gosh that was a lovely break!
Today I was able to go to the doctor for another check up on my blood pressure and Paxil progress. My BP is now down to 120/80 so I can start weaning off the Labatelol over the next 8 days and then I'll be done! It was 120/70 before it started to get out of whack, so that is great. And the Paxil is doing its job nicely. I have not cried once since I started taking it! I feel so much better.
And finally, Lilly's newborn pictures are ready! Here is the link-- the first several thumbnails are birth announcement samples and then the real photos begin after that. Do you have a favorite announcement???
