It’s hard to get to a computer for an uninterrupted amount of time. I’m sure everyone understands. :-) I have been watching a lot of Hulu because Savannah seems to dislike it when it’s quiet, and it’s easy just to turn on a TV show. I like watching TV while I’m nursing since it’s hands-free, and the show distracts me from the pain/discomfort. Recently I’ve been into Mary Tyler Moore, and I have watched the Office wedding episode at least 3 times and I might watch it again!
I took Savannah to the doctor last week because her eye was red and draining. The doc said that she scratched her eye, and that she had a clogged tear duct that was causing it to drain. It cleared up only a day or two later. I felt a little silly taking her to the doc for something so trivial as a scratch… but I am glad she’s okay! I also found out she weighs 9lbs and 9.5oz – so over 2 1/2 lbs bigger than when she was born! I’ve definitely noticed her growing. She is already just about out of her newborn outfits; I’ve been having to pack them away. I was a little sad to pack one outfit away – she only wore it twice and it was SO cute. Then when I was at TJ Maxx the other day, I saw the exact same outfit and I was SOOO tempted to get it in a bigger size. But I didn’t. :-)
Speaking of outfits, I have been on a quest to find a nice dress for her to wear to Isaac and Katie’s wedding! It’s been quite a challenge. I wanted something pretty, long-sleeved, and in 0-3 month size. Apparently that last stipulation was the challenge – I found a lot of newborn, and a lot of 3-6 month, but nothing in between. I finally found what I was looking for at Walmart of all places (which is ironic, because their infant clothing section was really small!) and I was excited. She’s gonna be the prettiest girl there – other than Katie of course!
When I took Savannah to the doctor, I asked her about her red eyelids. The doctor said that they are birthmarks, called “Angel kisses” and they’ll eventually go away. I like the name angel kisses. :-)
Only 2 or 3 more days until I go to Indiana! I still don’t know if I will have a traveling partner or not. I am excited about the trip, but VERY very bummed that Paul isn’t going to be able to come up until Friday night. I like having him around!
Well the baby’s hungry… time to watch another video on Hulu. :-)
