WOW!! My little peanut is 4 weeks old today! She's such a doll and I just her to pieces!

I just got day care arranged for her starting in January! I so don't want to go back to work, but I have to. Got bills to pay. My friend & coworker Joy & her DH have a daycare they run out of their home during the week. It's so nice.... I know her... she's a Critical care RN too and it's only about 5-6 miles from my house. It's only part-time, but that's fine with all of us. And it's only $20/day and my schedule is fine with them. Sweet, eh? She will only be there 3 days one week and 2 days another. Not much, but I really feel bad I have to work, but another part of me can't wait to get back with adults for a few hours a week!

I'm really trying to put on my thinking cap.... my poor little peanut is constipated. I talked at length with the Ped today about formulas and her having so much trouble... it always seems like she's trying to push out/poop. Poor little bugger. It just breaks my heart. He's keeping her on the Good Start Soy for now and I'm giving her sugar water. I'm doing some little exercises with her (bicycling legs, sitting upright) and keeping an eye on her. I broke down and used a little piece of a glycerine suppository on her this morning. I couldn't stand seeing her so uncomfortable. It actually helped.... she's finally sleeping.

Well, this has turned into a book! You all have a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving. My Inlaws are coming out here to see Lauren. Thank goodness.... I'd REALLY hate to see us take her back home now! I think we are going to give it a try at Christmastime. Lord help me!

WOW! 4 weeks already! How time flies!

I hope you can get her constipation problem figured out. I don't really have any help in that aspect.

You have a great Thanksgiving too!

Poor baby! Other than fluids, I don't know what to tell you. I'm glad you got the day care issue sorted out.

Isn't it amazing how slowly the pregnancy goes, but then once they are here, it just goes like lightening! Before you know it, you'll be celebrating her 1st birthday! Enjoy her being tiny while you can!

Hope Lauren's constipation goes away soon.

Time is really flying by fast!!

That is good that you know the person running the day care center. I'm sure that is a little comforting to you.
