Just thought I'd let everyone know that we're getting settled in with Desmond. He's finally gaining weight now that we're supplementing with formula. We discovered my milk supply wasn't high enough. A full baby is a much happier baby! We're doing a combination of nursing, formula, and pumping and hoping that my supply will catch up. We'll see. Desmond is a good baby and we love watching his little expressions. I can totally see Davin in him! He's also surprisingly strong and has been able to lift his head since he was a few hours old. It can be hard to wrestle him when we're trying to burp or swaddle him and he has other ideas. My mom is staying with me during the week since Davin has gone back to work. Babies are definitely a full time job! I can hardly get anything else done in my day. I'm not looking forward to going back to work mid-September. Even though I work from home and it's the perfect set up, it's not going to be easy. We'll see how that goes. Everyone asks us how we're sleeping. Well, as Davin says, "We're sleeping like a baby," which means we basically only get naps. Right now Desmond's up once in the middle of the night and we sometimes manage to get 3-4 hours of sleep on either end. I'm trying to sleep during the day when he sleeps, but when else am I supposed to get anything done?
