God damn the startle reflex. I can never put Keenan down for longer than 10mins before he startles and wakes up. When doesn't he have this reflex??? When he is sleeping on me!(which i love, dont get me wrong)
We went to the Breastfeeding clinic again today, Keenan was a no go... too tired. So we have to go again on Thursday. He has gained 6.5oz in 15 days thats good right??!How am I supposed to know? Hopefully I wont have to keep going after Thursday

Chris' friend Ben is moving to England so we had a wonderful dinner party at Morgans house. They pay the same in morgage as we do for rent, so now we are looking to see if we can afford a home. That would be great. A backyard for Keenan to play in. He is sleeping right now so I need to use this short time to do something other than type.

6 weeks

Keenan turned 6weeks old yesterday! I can't believe how much he has grown. We went to the Breastfeeding clinic and they said that Keenan weighed 8lbs 4 1/2oz which is only a half an ounce increase since his last visit a week ago...which I find interesting because we are supplimenting with formula and I am taking that drug to increase my supply. It also feels like I am increasing and when he ate yesterday the doctor told me that he had eaten 2 1/2oz so he isnt starving. I hate how I cant see what he eats but I really want to breastfeed so I am not going to let this stop me.

Naming and Other Things

Wow, what a week! Keenan is certainly a handful. I am never able to do anything but take care of him. We had his naming ceremony on Saturday and it was wonderful! (The weather wasn't )Granny's house was on the verge of flooding! But it didnt, thank goodness. Nadene the reverend did such a lovely ceremony, even with the glitches such as the weather and the forgetting of candles. We have a lovely certificate as well. I dont have much time to write. I am having breastfeeding difficulties so I have to pump and use a drug called motilium so that my supply increases and Keenan gets the food he so desperately needs! Gotta Go!

24 years and counting

Yesterday was my birthday, its funny because it really didn't feel like it, it felt like Keenan's 1month (which it was). Christopher bought me the most thoughtful gift. It's a royal doulton family made me cry! We went over to my parents house and had lamb. Keenan was such a fuss pot yesterday, it's really starting to be taxing as he crys all the time. (except when latched on). Needless to say, I am pretty tired today. Chris is on his second day of SCUBA so I am home alone, again, and will be for the next two days...thats why it is so taxing.
Still wouldnt trade for anything in the world.

It's so hard to keep this site up to date as I feel like I never put Keenan down! As it is right now he is nursing while I type. I have been having issues with my of them is always clogged so it hurts alot. I am going to a lactation consultant to see if we can nip this problem in the bud. I need to figure it out because I plan on Breastfeeding until Keenan is at least 12months old.
Another issue I have is my lack of Breastfeeding tops, you wouldn't believe how difficult it is to breastfeed in regular clothes. (that arn't frumpy). I did however get a catelouge so maybe i will get some clothes for my birthday!

Keenan smiled at me today! I know it wasn't just gas because his eyes smiled as well...and he was imitating me! It was so cool to have him actually start to interact with us! He has his good days and then his bad, it actually seems like it goes bad then good, then bad then good. He has a real issue with passing gas. I feel so bad for him because I can't do anything. And I have been trying to watch my diet so he doesnt get gassy foods in the breast milk...doesnt seem to be helping. Chris went to work this weekend so it was really wierd not to have him here with us, but I will survive! My birthday is comming up so that will be wierd, as people want to go out but I can't. And no partying for me...anywho baby is crying so I have to go and attend.

3 weeks

So, Keenan is 3 weeks old today. He has been a little bit of a handfull as we don't get to sleep until 2am. He is so mad at night so it takes us a little while to get him settled. He has to nurse for at least 30mins before he will start to sleep. Chris has taken to sleeping on the floor as whenever he moves Keenan wakes up.
We had Patrick(our photographer) come over to take Keenan's baby pictures but Keenan did not want to cooperate. So we had to postpone.
I got my invitations for the Naming Ceremony so I am planning on sending them out this week, so I need to get on that. Also, I have to start planning it. We are not planning to have anything big just family so it should be fun.
