Hello Ladies,
I just wanted to give you all an update on Ellie. She had a significant weight loss 19 oz in 5 days so we were supplimenting her with formula and all. Well Wednesday we had a doc appointment and she is now 8lbs and 9oz an ounce shy of her birth weight. It just feels so good to know she is on her way back up. We can slowly ween her off the formula and get her just to be on breast milk. Doc said to ween her slowly over the next 3 weeks or so. On a sad note...Carlos goes back to work Monday, so I will be all on my own with the 2 girls. I will miss having him around to pass off to. And a recent pic of Ellie...

I'm glad to hear that she is on her way back up.
That's such a cute picture of her. Sorry that dh is going back to work. How long did he have of paternity leave? I know that for us, dh only have two weeks, it's sad that they don't give them more time.

He took 3 weeks off used a bunch of his sick time up so now he has to go back. We are losing some $$$ because I am staying home. If he stayed home any longer we would be broke...so he has to go back. I will miss him!!!

She is so cute, Judy!!! I'm so glad she is gaining now and you can bf her now. Sorry that Carlos has to go back to work. Mick only gets 2 weeks off but he may have 1 week holiday time that he can use.

It's so hard when they have to go back to work. I'm sure he will be involved as much as he can when he is home. My hubby would always get our baby when he woke to feed and then would change him, bring him to me, and then put him back to bed. He loved doing that. Looking forward to it again.

So cute! Glad to hear she is doing well. Sorry your DH has to go back to work. Hopefully, it won't be too hard at home by yourself with both the girls.

Yay Ellie for gaining weight. Sorry it's time for Carlos to go back to work. I hope it's not too hard on you. Dh will only have 1 week off.

YAY for Miss Ellie gaining weight! That's excellent news!!! Love the pic of her, and your new siggy is beautiful, with both of your lovely girls in it!!

Sorry DH is going back to work. That's awesome that so many dads have paternity leave these days. Years ago when my DS was born, my SO was able to take a week I think. This time around though, he won't take more than a day or two. We won't be able to afford it, as he is hourly and doesn't have sick or vacation. So I think that's wonderful that Carlos was able to enjoy so much time with you ladies at home!!!!
