Thrush anyone?

Isa's come down with thrush (fungal infection inside the mouth), which is a result of the antibiotics given to her in the hospital. Which also means, I have it too! (not in my mouth, but on my boobs from breastfeeding her, yum right? ha). Thank God for some meds from the doctor that seems to be clearing it up pretty quick.

I know some of my friends have been wondering where I have been. I remember when I had Alana I didn't really leave the house for about 5 weeks. I'd say the same thing will happen with Isa, it just takes that long for breastfeeding to be fully established and to have somewhat of a schedule to work around when I do finally head outdoors. Right now, our outside activities consists of short walks with the baby in tow, which is really nice. For right now though, it's 'round the clock breastfeeding, burbing, changing diapers, and naps throughout the day/night. It's all very beautiful though! Hard? Of course! But so, so, worth it. This funky newborn stage doesn't last forever, so I'm just appreciating every little detail along the way. :)

How's Isa feeling now? I pray she is all better. Babies are hard enough to care for when they're well, let alone sick. Post some new pics so we can see how much she's grown and how beautiful (just like the rest of the fam) she is.
