She's 1 week old :(

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 11:55 AM
I cannot believe that a week ago I was in the hospital.. I think around 9cm at this exact time. Then in 2 hours my baby girl was out in the world.

We're EPing... yes by choice. I don't know why so many people have a "omg" type reaction but really, is it a big deal that I like pumping over breastfeeding? Yes, I realize breastfeeding would be easier but pumping has been pretty easy for us.
Now that I'm producing a ton of milk (8oz each boob!!) my fridge is filling up fast and as of last night I began freezing it & we already have 6 bags in the freezer, lol.
(just 2 days worth)

Sleeping is ok. She's on a completely switched night/day schedule. It doens't surprise me though because that's exactly how she was in my belly. It's getting better though and last night/this morning was the best so far. It never fails though that she will be completely wide awake at midnight ans be up for about 2-3 hours. Last night we went to sleep at 11 & woke up at 5am though!! I changed her, fed her and she went back to sleep till 10am! I feel sooooo much better and awake then I have been so I hope this is the start of a good thing.
She's definitely a daddy's girl. I dont know if it's because he was the 1st to hold her and continued to hold her for about a hour or what but I do know she loves her daddy. He can get her to sleep in a second if I've been trying for a while. I just think it's cause I wore her out and then he just swooped in at the right time, lol.

Everyone says she looks like him but I think she looks like me

Kendall is definitly a good girl and barely cries (which we love! lol). She HATES having a dirty booty and that's when she goes nuts. She will not stand to have pee or poop in her diaper, lol.
She got to meet her big sister yesterday. Makenna was visiting my sister and her family for the past week. She left for her visit last Friday then I went into labor on Saturday so it was great timing in that aspect. Yesterday was Kendall's first little road trip to pick up sister and she did amazing. My sister lives about 2 hours north of where we live and Kendall slept the whole way there (& back).
Makenna has been a big help for mommy & daddy and it's only been a day. She's going to be a great big sister.

It's been a crazy week but we've adjusted very well and I think Kendall is glad to be out of my tummy... I know I am!!!

She's so cute! I'm glad you guys seem to be adjusting well def helps that Makenna is older. She's going to be really helpful! And as far as EPing goes whatever works for you! I hate being attached to my pump but I also pump daily sometimes twice a day to give him fresh milk for when I'm at work! Do you have a certain schedule for pumping?

Look at Makenna, the little big sis, giving Kendall some TLC, she's so sweet! Congratulations once again to your family.
