Out of town visitors

My cousin John came from SF with a couple of his buddies and got their asses whooped. I’m sure they will return the favor when we head out west. Also visiting from the west was my brother and his family. It was very nice seeing all the family and introducing them to the OAT. See a few photos below, and yes, i know i look retarded.

First bottle, first suction and first spin class

Both Olivia and I reached new milestones this week – Olivia her first bottle and me my first spin class in over 4 months!!

We were so worried about her taking to the bottle, and she ate out of the bottle no problem!  I AM FREE, I AM FREE – we can now be away from a comfy breastfeeding spot for more than 2 hours!  Maybe now Brian can wake up in the middle of the night to feed her…

My first spin class, specifically the seat, was quite painful and very difficult.  I can’t believe I used to do that often – it’s hard!

Things we have learned…

We have been parents now for 3 weeks, and we have learned/discovered:

  1. how to change a diaper
  2. how to live life in 2-3 hr increments
  3. my breasts can sometimes act like geysers, making a mess and sometimes erupting spontaneously
  4. Our OAT poops both before AND after a feed, so we go through LOTS of diapers!
  5. she’s like a mini-person and prefers to sleep on her side.
