Calleigh is home...

She came home on Friday afternoon. SHe is a little angel. SHe just eats and sleeps. She is not the greatest of eaters and it is a struggle to get her to eat what she is supposed to eat. Burping her is a feat in itself. SHe TOTALLY stops eating if she needs to burp but she can take 15 minutes to burp. The boys are over the moon with excitement. I have tons of video and pictures but haven't uploaded anything yet. We are settling in and tryin to come up with a nice schedule. Today Frank went back to work so we are alone today. Luckily, my mother in law drove Cormac to schoool. My sister, Trish, is picking him up and dropping him off here and my Mom is going to watch Ciaran and Colin while I take Calleigh to the pediatrician's office. Our doctor makes you come in every other day for weight checks in the beginning. While it's a pain in the ass it's great because that is really the only way to know she is eating enough. Since her eating has been an issue for a while it's comforting to know she will be weighed.

My cousin, Jeannie, is a pediatric nurse. She came by yesterday and weighed the baby. Looks like she gained an once which is good. At least she isn't losing any.

So far, it's just be awesome to have everyone home together. We have had lots of visitors and everyone is so generous. Frank's Aunt Mary brough over enough food to feed a small army. But since we kinda of are a small army it's great! I said to Frank it would be great if I didn't have to worry about cooking and my prayers were answered! We have a different meal for each night this week. GOtta love that!

Ok, gotta go feed the baby. I will post more when I have time.

Been following you guys from Kari Gates blog. Congratulations on the new little one!! My daughter had similar trouble eating and I purchased a scale on-line so that I could just weigh her after every feeding if necessary. Good luck!!
