On the up and up

It's been a while since I've posted. My mother asked me why that was last night! :)
Things have been pretty good here. I miss Ady like crazy but I know I would probably be bald if she were here; trying to deal with a newborn and a very energetic 4 year old.
Owen is more aware and more awake everyday. The roughest day our first night home. Owen didn't see the need to go to sleep until 1:30 am and then it was only if he was sleeping in our bed. He did that for 2 nights. Now, he's sleeping for about 4 hour stretches and in his own bed!! Mommy gets much better sleep that way!
Nursing was going well until my milk came in and I became engorged. That was painful. I've been pumping my milk instead. I just can't handle the pain of him nursing. And this way, I'm building up a stash of milk. I need to get to the store for some storage bags so that I can freeze the extra milk.
We've been trying to get out for a little bit everyday so we don't go stir crazy. That would be easier if it wasn't so hot out right now! In the 90's everyday so far. Owen was born just in time!! I would not want to be a 40+ weeks pregnant lady in this heat! Yuck!
I think thats all...I'm going to start work on the whole birth story. But I think breakfast is in need first!
