Visting Mommy, Esq.

Over the Columbus Day weekend I made a trip up to Boston to spend time with Mommy, Esq. and the twins, Ned and Penny. This is my first significant amount of time with babies (7 weeks old) since A. had Finn almost two years ago. And of course, being pregnant myself, I was particularly excited to see how the Mommy gene has been developing over the past 4 months. I can report (and Mommy, Esq. can confirm) that I passed with flying colors!

Ned is a little grunter and LOVES to eat. Mommy, Esq. has been expressing so I was able to help with a lot of feedings. Penny is quite the sleeper and I can only hope that my singleton will be just as good. I changed plenty of diapers and didn't even need a refresher lesson (totally like riding a bike). I didn't have to get up for the late night feeding and was able to be well rested throughout the day. Don't worry, I'll enjoy it now...

Mommy, Esq. is down to one feeding at night which is extremely impressive. She is using formula for last bottle and night feedings. I have to say that my visit has made me a little more relaxed about breast feeding. I do plan on starting with exclusive BF but am now comfortable that if it doesn't work out, I won't stress about it. Plus, that means DH would get plenty of night feedings :-)

I have many more pictures that still need to be uploaded from my camera. I will be sure and post more over the next few days.

"expressing" - you have the lingo down!

Thanks for all your help. Ned and Penny are wearing the onsies tonight you gave them and they miss their auntie already.
