Slow Climb

So, Paul is finally back to his birth weight! Well, he's actually a little more now. Because of his tongue tie he wasn't latching properly and wasn't getting enough to eat. Yesterday we got it snipped and already it's better! I weighed him at the doctor's yesterday and he was 8 lbs 3.5 oz! Yay! I was really happy to see that because they're supposed to gain it back by a week and a half, not 3 weeks!

It was frustrating because I was having to pump for five minutes on each side after every feed and also give him an extra ounce through a syringe (he would suck on my finger while I slowly gave him the milk or formula through the syringe.) It was very exhausting! I'm glad I don't have to do that anymore. Although today he is really hungry and I'm trying to just breastfeed him and not give him extra. I'm waiting to see how it goes. It might be a looong! But, the more I feed him the better my supply will be so I think it's a good idea.

I gave him another bath today and he HATED it! Probably because he was STILL! The last bath he seemed to like a lot better but today he wasn't going to be happy. No way! But I got him clean and that's what matters most! lol!

Anywho, he's finally asleep in his swing so I'm going to take the small amount of time I've got to do a few dishes!

Hanging out after a good eating.

The syringe feeding.

Wearing the hat his Uncle Blaine brought back for him.
It's a little big now but he'll grow into it!

I LOVE this one! This is after waking up in the morning.

On a walk with my little man!
