Tonight, Maya not only went to the breast, she took it! She latched and suckled like a champ. The nurse was blown away. She leaned over my shoulder and said, "Wow! Look at her suck!" We only held her that way for about 15 minutes because she got wiggly and was messing with her lines, so I took her to my chest to finish her feeding and relax. She dozed and held my finger. So sweet... Peter held Bobby and after we put Maya away, I spent some time with them until my breasts began soaking my sweater, signaling pump time.
It was a long day. We took my dad to the NICU this morning, then dropped him off and went to a Christening (just lovely!) and then back to the hospital. Home now and having some dinner before bed. We are both wiped out.
At some time, I will check and respond to email. Just cant right now. It's all I can do to post entries and read blogs as I pump (like now). Once I'm caught up (almost!) I will get back into my email for more than just the daily NICU notices. I promise!
