Veronica had her two week check up today. She weighed in at 7lbs 11 oz and measured 20"! She's doing much better with her eating since we switched formula and bottles. She does have thrush as I thought and a yeast diaper rash, so we have prescriptions for that. Hopefully she'll be over it quickly! They did that awful, awful, PKU blood test. For some reason, her little foot wouldn't bleed. The nurse had to stick her 5-6 times. :-( Oh how she cried and screamed!!!! I know it's for her own good, but I felt terrible. It was just awful holding her in my arms while the nurse squeezed her tiny foot and my baby screamed in pain. :-(

Clint is in Houston all this week. Valerie stayed at my mom's last night and is there again tonight. She loves it there and they love having her, so it's all good. I miss her though. Roni sleeps a lot, so the house is extra quiet. I felt really bad this afternoon when Valerie was here. She wanted me to watch TV with her. "Dora Boots Momma!" she kept saying. And kept pointing to the bed "right there!" wanting me to lay down with her. I couldn't though because it was time to leave for Veronica's appointment. I told her I'd play with we got back, but it took forever at the drug store, so that didn't happen either. I'm going to get her tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes on my first night on my own with both of my girls!


  1. Wow, Veronica grew an inch and a half already and 4 ounces. You should have Valerie by now. I hope tonight will go smoothly.

  2. Congrats, Melanie, she's gorgeous!!!
    I am sorry you're having some rough spots, I am having them myself with breastfeeding... =(
    Hopefully it will all be well soon!
