It looks like Kate is going to be in the hospital for longer than two weeks. She has digressed a little -- she is now on oxygen and has not latched well at all for the past couple days. The first few times I fed her, it took her a while to latch but then she caught on well . However, the last couple days she has hardly gotten anything from me. She won't be able to come home until she is latching well for ALL her feedings (and right now they are only having me try twice a day) so this will most likely be a longer road than we originally anticipated.
I forgot to mention in my last post the reason for Kate's small size. During delivery, the doc discovered that my placenta was calcified -- basically just worn out. It looked (pardon the imagery) kind of crusty and shriveled. I guess this is just a random thing that happens sometimes which causes the baby to stop getting the nutrients they need. So it was a good thing I got induced since she wasn't going to get much more from being in the oven...and at least now she is getting food right to her tummy so she can start growing.
Above is a picture of my cute little guy that I just took today. Lately, Finn has been really into cowboys. My sister Megan bought him this cowboy hat that he loves. He calls anything Quaker brand "Cowboy Cereal" or "Cowboy Snacks" because the Quaker looks like he is wearing a cowboy hat. He loves to shout "Yee-Haw! Cowboy!" while he is playing. Also, he is really good at counting and likes to count to ten as seen in the following video:
I can't wait for him to meet his little sister!
