I haven't had a chance to look up on the jump drive who won yet, but I will get to that, I promise. They are taking out my staples tomorrow and we are PROBABLY getting discharged, so that is a good, when I'm home with my things, it will make everything just a little easier on me. Not Pete, since he has to take the place of an entire nursing staff, but he is just as eager to get out of here and that "bed" he has to sleep on as I am.
After yesterday, I was over protective psycho mom today. I asked a friend to leave because the room was too full of people and the baby was getting hovered around again. I didn't allow him to be passed from person to person and Pete and I made sure that we were in sync when people talked about visiting. There was a hairy spot in the morning, but we worked it out and made sure he had about a 3 hour nap and rest time afterwards. I am not really an overprotective mama, and I didn't really think that I would be so mama hen, but when poor baby is over stimulated and stressed out because people don't have the good judgement to take a huge step back and not peep at the baby over 3 other people's shoulders and try to touch a finger or his head like he was the pope, it is my job to step up and protect him. I am hopeful, that as he grows, I can relax again and he won't be such a novelity and that all the baby hungries that people have don't transfer over to not newborns. But, we can only hope.
Aunt Katie and Aunt Becca came into town today, and they brought Tenz these adorable Dwabbit feet that Katie made. A Dwabbit is a hybrid between a Dwarf and a Hobbit and that is our baby Tenzin. So there is a picture of that below. Also below is when the cute baby fell asleep as Pete was burping him...he was so full and happy and content that he just fell asleep. So cute! He had a restful napping day. Here is my great advice from my 3 days as a mom: When the doctors and nurses say your baby WILL BE fine just eating colostrum until your milk comes in...that doesn't mean they won't be tortured and needlessly punished because your body takes forever to kick into milk! Yeah. I have him nurse first on each side to remind my body that it needs to milk it up but then we give him some Similac so he isn't starving and working so hard and getting nothing out of it and a huge stress ball. Just trust me, it is worth it. OP story still to come, maybe tomorrow? if we do go home and I get to be my stuff again.
