How are you guys? I haven't been able to keep up very much because I've been busy with the baby, so I'll try to do that soon. But I wanted to pop in and say hi. MIL has the baby right now, so my hands (and boobs, haha) are free.
As much as I'm grateful for my MIL and her help and her being here and her letting me sleep, shower, nap, and her doing the dishes and keeping things clean, etc... I'm so ready for her to leave and to get the house back under my control. She started to organize our kitchen yesterday, and I thought she was just cleaning or whatever, but she started going through our drawers, reorganizing them, throwing things away (she did ask for most of it), and then started reorganizing where things are kept on our counters. I may have to put everything back when she leaves, but maybe not. Ugh. I also hate not having my baby all to myself... I barely got to spend time with her when she was in the NICU, and then it's been nothing but "here let me help" and DH's family here since we've gotten home. And I appreciate it, but I want my baby, darn it. LOL I almost lost it the day after we got home, because there were 7 people in the house and no one would let me hold the baby (FIL is especially baby-greedy). It probably wouldn't have been so bad had things not gone the way they did and I got to bond with her right after birth and all that, but it didn't go that way. So I really wanted to scream and take my baby and run away from everyone. Plus I've been exhausted and hormonal, so that doesn't help things. DH has tried to be supportive, but he's just letting his family take her and stuff because "we should utilize them while they're here". Sometimes I think he just doesn't get it.
We took Maya to the pediatrician the other day, and she did well. He said she's doing great, and looks good. But we're taking her back today because she has some sort of skin rash or something on her hands and feet and I want to make sure she's not allergic to anything or something like that. But she's just being adorable and doing all kinds of baby things. Mainly eating, sleeping, and pooping. She hates diaper changes (cries through them until I pick her back up), and hates it when I try to change her clothes (she is such a messy eater!). She's nursing well, but still needs to be supplemented with formula because I don't produce enough right now. I hope that will change soon. DH gets to stay home next week, though, and MIL will be leaving tomorrow, so that'll be nice. We'll get to be a family and bond, so I'm really looking forward to that.
How is everyone? Have I missed anything? I love you guys!! (I know I'm saying I love you a lot, but it's the damn hormones!) I do mean it, though. You guys have been so awesome through this whole thing and been so supportive (Jenn and UW especially), and I'm so happy I'm part of this board.
