So, most of my pictures were taken on my canon camera... and it just so happens that the only way to transfer those pictures to a computer is my built in memory card reader on MY computer... I"m on chris's laptop right now. MY computer is upstairs in my bedroom. I'm not allowed to go up and down the stairs right now. So I have no way to get my pictures off my memory card... atleast until I can go up and down the stairs, and who knows how long that will be. Until I feel comfortable with it I guess. I tried earlier today to go up the stairs so i could get some of my clothes. Chris had to help me, and by the time I got to the top, I was IN PAIN. It was NOT a good idea. I will NOT be doing that again any time soon. So, I'm very sorry that I will not be able to post the pictures I promised, but they will be up at some point in the near future!
We are all doing pretty well. I think i was up a bit too much yesterday (I won't go into why I think that... It would be WAY too much info to put on here) But chris had me stay in bed most of the day today. I only got up to eat and go to the bathroom. I'm doing better thanks to a day in bed, but I'm a bit nervous about how I'll handle tomorrow when I don't have chris here to wait on me :) he'll actually be gone ALL day and I'm very sad. he's got a softball game tomorrow night, so he won't be home til 11 or so. It sucks, but I've got my mom here, and my brothers and sister when they're done with school and work. So hopefully, I won't have to over do it too much.
Maddie is wonderful. We were having a few problems with her nursing this morning, but we figured it was just because of gas and she nursed fine this evening. She is such a laid back baby, it's a bit frustrating cause she'll nurse for 10 minutes and be happy as can be and won't eat for another 2 hours... She was nursing for like 30-40 minutes when we were at the hospital. So I'm a bit worried about weight gain for her (she lost 10 oz in the hospital... hopefully she's gained some back now, we've got a dr appt tomorrow morning to check.)
Taylor has been SO GOOD. I can't believe how good she's been with all this. My mom said you can definately tell she feels very loved and secure with the way she's handled the new baby and me being in bed and such. No jealousy at all! She actually LOVES maddie. She loves to watch her and laughs everytime Maddie moves or makes noises or anything. Taylor will just sit here and stare at Maddie and giggle and pat her head and rub her tummy. It's too sweet. I'm so glad she likes Maddie. She's also grown SO much. I hadn't realized what a big girl she really is. It freaked me out a bit to see her after I'd had the baby. She looked HUGE. She's also learned so much even since we got home on Friday. She's started doing this new dance thing where she squats all funny with her arms out. She really only does it to the Spongebob theme song. Me and chris laughed so hard when we saw her. Then, this morning we were watching the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and they were doing the Hot Dog dance. She got so excited and started doing her dance again. We realized, she's doing goofy's dance. The only difference is she can't lift one leg at a time, so she only squats, but it's the goofy dance! It's too funny. She also learned how to say Banana today. she calls them anana's. And she's saying tons of other things. She's started saying sentences. She says "I did it" and "there she is" all the time. I can't believe how big she is now. It's kinda sad, but also very relieving. She's alot more independent now, which is a big plus for us. anyways. I'm so proud of her and how she's handling everything. I can't wait til I'm more mobile and can chase after her and be more of the mom I was before maddie was born.
I will post those pictures up soon. Hope this holds ya'll over in the meantime!
