Lydia's First Month

Becasue we got to leave the hospital when Lydia was a day old, we had to go to our pediatrician when she was three days old. We got all dolled up and headed to the doctor. 

My milk hadn't come in, it has always come in on day 4, and her jaundice numbers were a little elevated so the doctor told me to put her in front on the window without a shirt on to get some sun and hopefully break up the billirubin. She said is her poo was yellow by day 5 then I wouldn't have to come in. With all that we went through with Layla and her jaundice, I was going to do everything I could! My milk came in and one day 4 at 10 p.m. her poo was still that dark tar-like stuff. Finally at around midnight she had 5 poop diapers and it turned yellow!! I was so happy I cried!! We didn't have to go back and my baby didn't have to go under the lights!

My Mom and Dad came down and Mom stayed 4 days to help me get in to the swing of things with Ella starting kindergarten. It was nice not to have to take all the girls and Ella and I were able to go to her first day of kindergarten all by ourselves!

Her cord fell off when she was two weeks old so she got to take a big girl bath! She also decided to suck on her thumb and finger. She is the cutest! 

Caleb had his birthday party, so off we went to Waxahachie to celebrate. Lydia, as usual, slept the whole time!

The big girls had a fantastic time. Layla went down this slide approximately 100 times! Her face each time was priceless!

We went back to her pediatrician at two weeks old and she weighed 10 pounds (90th%) and 21-1/2" (95%). She is a good baby! She sleeps great, wakes up to eat and goes right back to bed.

That is not the same child that I saw on Instagram the other day. Nope, no way.

Your family is beautiful!
