Re: anyone heard from Brie (skolbut)?

I'm here, I'm here!! Just SUPER busy!!!!!

Don't hate me -- I have an amazing baby. He is SO good and only wakes twice a night to feed. I exclusively pump and have been able to keep up enough for his daytime bottles, so we do two formula bottles at night, plus a friend pumps a bottle a day for me (he doesn't like her milk so I've been stashing it in the freezer just in case). He had a bump on his back that gave us a scare, but u/s showed no abnormalities and it seems to have gone away. Our transition to three kids has been SO easy and seamless, it's like he's always been here with us. The big boys are over the moon for him, and my husband takes everything in stride. One day I fell asleep before I could give Carson a bath, so my husband just did it for me, all by himself.

Since I took so much time off when I broke my leg I had to go right back to work, literally days after he was born. It's a super busy time of year with football and basketball season overlapping plus fall weddings. Add family gatherings, five day a week preschool for my oldest, and a SIL who is planning a last minute wedding into the mix and I feel like we're nonstop!

I LOVE all of you... I'm so thankful for my DS family.... thanks for checking in! I'm on facebook, more than I should be, since I have to make myself SIT to pump that's my computer time, so send me a PM if you want my last name so you can find me there

Here's a link to Carson's newborn pictures.

Oh! And my chunker is over 10 pounds, shooting him up from the 25th percentile to the 50th! I took him in for a cruddy cold that he got from a friend's baby, and told them I was worried he wasn't taking in as much. The doc (love our family doc, he's very 'been there done that' laid back) laughed and said he's not worried as long as he's hydrated and showed me the curve! Amazing
