Still In Survival Mode

Remember over a month ago, when I promised more pictures and posts of the baby soon? That was crazy talk.

The past six weeks (six weeks!) have been insane. Other than the usual sleep deprivation and complete rearranging of our entire lives that new parents experience, we've had a lot of issues with feeding her and slow weight gain. Because of this, I've spent pretty much all day, every day since she was born feeding her. Or waking her up to feed her, or getting ready to feed her. Sometimes it's a struggle to find time to feed myself. I scarf down a sandwich while she impatiently cries in hunger. As you can see from the photo, it's worn us all out.

So am I finally posting now because we have it all worked out? No. We've made significant progress, but we're not there yet. I'm posting because it's the end of the day, August 31, and if I don't post today I'll miss an entire MONTH for the first time since I started this blog and that is unacceptable, even during this crazy time.

Hopefully I will start posting again soon. I think about posts, and compose them in my head during marathon nursing sessions. But getting to a computer and actually getting them written and online is a completely different matter. So try not to forget about me, check your RSS feed once in a while .... I shall return!

Don't worry - you're still on my blogroll, and will remain there :)

Sounds like you're doing fantastic.

Aww! That photo of Keith & the baby is adorable!

Almost as great as the one of Little L in the Flyers bib, ha ha! : )

Hang in there...

I've heard it has been tough. I'm grateful things are beginning to turn around for you. You have a beautiful daughter, and she has two great parents, crazy or not!

Love and prayers

Jonathan: Thanks for letting me know I'm still on your blogroll. It does make me feel good to know I haven't been forgotten!

Thanks for all the support. I will make my way back to the Internet eventually, I promise!
