today was another good day...
i'm recognizing a need to adjust her schedule ...which would be FINE if it meant this formula was the one that works... she's sticking to the schedule we're on now pretty well--but we may need to add a feeding or two in between (and shift a feeding or two)
i'm still trying not to get too excited, but at day two... my happy dance is getting a little harder to control... yes, jumping for "soy"
i'm excited about the return of my happy baby... i'm seeing an inkling of a glimmer of light at the end of this tunnel... and on the not-so-glorious moments, i'm trying to remind myself of how GREAT she really IS doing...we have oh-so-much to be thankful for... the pediatricians continue to be amazed at how well she's doing and her "skills" ...and i also remind myself that she's really only supposed to be a week old... i'm learning that she's playin' the catch up game REALLY well. even though she's still a little squirt ;)
and i must admit--everyone seems to have stories about their baby and what they went through...which isn't always what i've wanted to hear about in the stress and shock of our situation, it seems pretty encouraging in this particular scenario to have input from other moms...
...i'm hearin' an amen from all the moms out there about all the "unsolicited advice"... ha!
but, i'm slowly learning that sometimes you don't know what advice to ask for--so the only way to get it, is when someone shares their experience with you... yeah, we've all gotta stick together
because it DOES take a village... of THAT i am SURE.
