Typing with one hand

If I don't get my act together, I'm going to lose all my readers! Sorry I haven't updated in a few days. I rarely have more than one hand free!

Ruby had her weight check on Friday afternoon and she gained almost 6 ounces from Wednesday! Good progress, huh? But, I'm having major mommy guilt. I can't believe that I'm giving her formula. :( She is very gassy and burpy and just all around unhappy. 90% of the time she starts screaming whenever I put her down. I can normally get her to settle down by about 3 am and then we are back up to feed at 6:30 or 7! Lack of sleep is starting to wear on me.

I'm taking Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and *gasp* drinking beer in the hopes that I can be nursing Ruby exclusively soon. She has another weight check on Monday. I'm praying that she well be up another 3 or 4 ounces so I can stop worrying and start enjoying her. But, we have a crazy week ahead of us. I'll do what I have to do, but it may not be fun.

Thomas has state assessments this week. I have to have him across town by 8:30 in the morning on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I'll be able to drop him off if I leave a cell phone number in case of emergency. But, I don't have a cell phone and I don't think they want to listen to Ruby scream all morning. How did our parents ever survive without cell phones??

Jordan gets on the bus at 8:20. Oh yeah, Ruby has her weight check at 9:45 Monday. And we have a memorial service Tuesday morning. *sigh* I'm sure there's something that I'm forgetting.

More pictures soon. Promise.
