Mollie is almost 4 weeks old now. We are finally starting to settle down into a routine and getting back to normal life (well...the new normal). She is doing great. She's not the BEST sleeper but she's definitely not the worst! Some nights I feel like I'm up all night and others we're up a couple times for normal feeding. She doesn't really full-on CRY very much but sometimes she's just kind of fussy/whiney and not content. She seems to have a lot of gas and at least some degree of reflux. I just thought yesterday...wow...she hasn't spit up in a few days, maybe she's outgrown it....then this morning she spit up A LOT while she was still nursing!! She has hiccups like crazy all the time. None of it is bad enough to make me feel like she needs medication or anything. I'm hoping over time it will just get better and better.

I finally started driving about 2 weeks ago (it had been since December 10th!) so we've pretty much been every where....grocery store, walmart, target, church, homeschool group, etc. She sleeps soundly whenever we're out and about. I was the most worried about returning to church but actually people haven't been that bad.

People tell me I look good but I'm starting to feel bad about my post preggo body. Maternity doesn't fit and neither do my old clothes. It's a crappy in-between stage. It doesn't really bother me when I'm home but when I have to "get dressed" to go somewhere I realize I have NOTHING and I don't know what to wear. I'm hoping this too will get better with time but my rapid weight loss has stopped so I'm scared this is it. I've got this 10-12 extra pounds for good.

Its definitely hard trying to homeschool, breastfeed and take care of my house....and forget cooking. I haven't even attempted that yet. *sigh* I try to just tell myself it'll get better with time. I made brownies today! That's a start! haha But...she'll never be a newborn again and unless I have a surprise, I won't ever have a newborn again at all so I'm trying to cherish this time!

Ok...so much for the "quick" update! Here's some pics!

Here's one in the hospital right after she was born:
