First I want to start by thanking all of you for being so understanding of my need to take time off from the blog. I know you can choose to get your deals elsewhere, so it means a lot to me that you continue to choose CouponingtoDisney.
Today I am beginning to work full time on the blog again. I am so grateful that my friend was able to help for a little longer than expected. I am excited to be working again and I have a lot of big plans that I hope to implement over the next few months.
My postpartum recovery with Molly Kate has been very difficult. In addition to the normal things you deal with after giving birth, I also dealt with clogged ducts that turned into Mastitis and a cough/cold that just wouldn’t go away. I was finally able to get on the right antibiotics and I feel so much better! It’s wonderful to feel like myself again.
Molly Kate is a great baby. She is very happy and easy going, most of the time. The antibiotics that I had to take upset her stomach and I spent 3 days in a rocking recliner because I could not put her down for more than 2 minutes at a time. Once the antibiotics left her system, she was back to being easy going.
She also has a slight case of hip dysplasia. She has to wear the Pavlik Harness until August 7th. She has spells where she gets really aggravated that she can’t curl herself up into a ball, but for the most part it doesn’t seem to bother her.
She is still waking about every 2 hours at night to eat. She is currently going thru her 6th week growth spurt where she literally wants to eat around the clock for a few days, so I am hoping as soon as the growth spurt ends that she starts sleeping longer stretches at night.
My older 2 kids are adjusting well to the new baby. They are so excited to have a little sister and want to help and tend to her as much as they are able to. We also made the decision to take them both out of public school and homeschool them this year. We are using K12’s independent program and have already started working on lessons to make the adjustment to full time homeschooling. I am very excited about what the future holds for them!
I hope you have had a great summer so far! We are enjoying the bright sunny days, but not the high temps with high levels of humidity. Alabama has some crazy hot summers! Thank goodness for pools.
