March 4, 2008 Heading to HCMC

We're packing up and heading out to HCMC in a couple hours. We've enjoyed Danang and our tropical paradise, but it's time for the next step of our journey. Maddie has been awesome and is sleeping great. She woke up once last night, drank 2 bottles of formula and half a bottle of breastmilk, then went back to sleep until her big brother woke her up. He's doing really well, too. We all slept in the bed together last night and it felt perfect!We're working on the breastfeeding. It's just not as fast-flow as her bottle, so she gets frustrated quickly. But I think with some work, we'll get it going. And if not, that's ok, too. I have enough frozen at home to last until she's past 12 months.Some fun facts: She's a thumb-sucker. She loves a blanket we brought for her, and will stick the corner of it in her mouth with her thumb.
She loves being held. She'll cry if we put her down, so we're holding her 24/7 right now!She learned how to splash in the tub last night. She thought it was the funniest thing ever.Her face is clearing up nicely. The medicine worked great!She loves just staring at me, like she's memorizing my face.

if it is any consolation, addy still nurses many times a day and I have *never* had milk. It is def. an interesting and evolving relationship. So keep at it, don't do it if either of you are stressed but offer in a casual way, esp when she is sleepy (but not cranky) or after her bottle. Sounds like things are going well! Congrats!
