My mom arrived Monday afternoon. M-i-l had not been planning on coming, but when Dh called her when Baby Girl was an hour old, and she heard her crying, she really really wanted to come out (the in-laws live about 5 hours away). So she and F-i-l did, on Tuesday. I was a little worried about having three extra people around, especially these three. You know what? It was fabulous. The grandmas took turns burping and changing diapers (and telling Baby Girl how beautiful she is). The in-laws had to leave this morning, and my mom will be here through next Saturday. Then Dh and I basically told M-i-l that she will be returning at that point.
Dh and I handle nights (meaning I feed her and Dh does everything else). Then in the morning, once Baby Girl has eaten, I hand her to my mom and can go back to sleep or shower or eat until she gets hungry again. I love it. Dh and I are able to get more rest. We wonder how people with less-than-helpful grandmas do it. We'd be absolutely pooped without the help of the grandmas! So now we're just moderately pooped. Ha ha
Baby Girl is an expert latcher (yay!) and my milk is in with a vengeance (yow!). My favorite times are when she has eaten and she looks at me so seriously with her big eyes. Like the most important thing to her is to memorize my face. Aah, I love it. I am so in love with this little girl.
P.S. Yes, the baby is a bit jaundicey. At the doctor's yesterday they weren't concerned enough to even check her level, the nurse just said it will take a little while for the yellow to work itself out of her system.
