Board is slow this morning- perhaps everyone is either in labor or busy snuggling their new bundles!
DD1 is at daycare, and DD2 is passed out. Before going to pick up DD1, I need to a) pee, b) pump (leaking from both sides, sigh), and c) shower. Yet here I sit..
What are you up to today?
snuggling with baby I have to go through mountains of paper (mail, school stuff from the big kids, stuff from drs, ect) today and at some point this week I have to switch the kids closets/dressers to their fall/winter clothes but I'm being pretty lazy so far today

I am here, reading/lurking away. Just did a little bit of laundry, waiting for a friend to show up but other then that I am not doing much, little girl is sitting here next to me. Doctor doesn't want me doing much which really makes things hard on me because I usually am always doing something and its odd not being at work.
The 3 older kids were at school today so it was nice to have a couple hours with DH and Simone. She has been sleepy all day (which means we may not get much sleep tonight), and at one point we got a couple cute pictures of her sleeping on me. It's been a good day.
I also got a few things done for work which made me feel good.

I am here, I read a lot more than I post. I just got some pictures of baby Shay on the computer and posted.
Shay is napping and my mom is about to take the boys outside to play. I may go try to take a little nap before I have to go to the doctor. I called them this morning to ask about swelling because I still have a ton of swelling and it is 6 days after my c/s and I don't remember swelling this much after my c/s with DS. They wanted me to come in this afternoon, so I have an appointment at 3 to get that checked out.
Off to go pick up DD. I didn't shower, but hey, I did pee and pump, so that's not bad, right?
Eating chocolate covered blueberries and thinking I should wake Selah to feed her in a few minutes. Took Selah to her 4 day check yesterday and she had lost a lot of weight... we were having a hard time getting her nurse and stay awake. So, we spent 24 hrs. pumping and trying to nurse and supplementing her with the EBM in bottles and I took her back for a weight check this am and she had gained 6 oz back overnight! So, we're working hard at feeding her every 2 1/2 hours just to keep her gaining weight. It's a lot of work! The bigs are napping right now and I just got up from a short nap as well. DH is doing paperwork in the office...
Lurking here and there. Been on my own since yesterday afternoon with Thalia. We take my mom back to Manhattan on my SO's off days except he had to work today. She's been fussy this am and has finally gone back to sleep. She's been waking up pretty reliably every 2 hours to feed. Shes peeing lots too!!
