I thought I would get a couple photos of this sweet baby connor posted…it’s been so nice to bring him home. We are all just so in love with him! I think that Capri has finally realized that connor is a force to be reckoned with. He has a bottle and a blinky just like her, and she is just not sure why everyone is making such a big deal about him! Lol! She is pretty concerned… she wants to touch him, but certainly doesn’t get the concept of “‘soft’… Colton was sitting by me, holding him as he is fast asleep, and colton said ‘I forgot how boring Capri used to be…” totally, the kids love to play with Capri so much cause she can really PLAY! She is so much fuN! …
Connor had a few hours of awake time today- which is exciting! He has been a total power sleeper! He is so sweet… so calm! He doesn’t cry… or at least he hasn’t yet. I am sure he’ll figure it out! but he wakes up in the night, and just kicks his blankets off and kind of makes grunting noises… but no crying! He’s just happy to be here!
Man, so am i!!
I am feeling so much better. I have been totally taking it easy!
I am not a breast feeder… I went through hell with the first 3 kids… did the whole guilt feeling, and was just miserable for the first 2 or so months of their lives… casue I felt like that was expected of me etc… I gave that up with Capri! Went straight to the bottle, and that was the best thing ever for ME! (and for everyone… the big fight is who gets to feed baby!) anyway…so I am bottle feeding Connor, which makes me happy, and makes him happy! And I know just how much he’s eaten and it doesn’t take 2 hours! … since it’s day 3, I am starting having major pain as the milk is thinking it's supposed to come in… so sore! So I have been doing the cabbage routine! It worked like a charm w/ Capri. So they are starting to feel much better! I am sure it will be sore for a few more days!
So for now… I am so sad that my family doesn’t live closer! It will be a couple weeks before we’ll be up in SLC to show him off!
