In my previous post, I’d wanted to post some pictures of Tomoe’s first day at home. Well, here they are!
Tomoe is in her new bed for the first time.
She's sound asleep. She slept all the way home.
Before I went to work, she wouldn't let go of my finger.
She looks so peaceful sleeping on the sofa.
She was quite peaceful her first night at home. She was quiet, ate well and went to sleep after being fed. I got to feed her around 1 am on Thursday night. She woke up at about 5 am, ready to be fed again. I was up between 5 and 6 am, because she was being a bit fussy and was waiting for some formula. Just as I went back to bed at 6 am, my mother-in-law was just getting up.
In the morning, after getting up, she was pretty calm and peaceful again. It seems she’s quiet during the day. On Friday evening, when I got home, I got to experience another side of her. She was extremely fussy from the time I got home until we finally got to bed around 1 am. My wife was exhausted. She didn’t get a nap and didn’t sleep well during the night. But that night, as I fed her again, she held on to the bottle.
She had a firm grip on her bottle. She was also sleeping!
The other big thing that happened on Friday was that her umbilical cord fell off. It happened while I was at work. We’re keeping it in a small box that’ll keep it dry.
Tomoe's umbilical cord fell off.
Well, today was a bit of a sleepy day, although I worked long hours. When I got home, Tomoe was sleeping, but soon woke up. Then the fun started! She cried off and on, was fed a couple of times, and didn’t sleep at all. And then, in the past hour, she pooped 4 times. She had to have her diaper changed 4 times in an hour. She is a poop factory. And as I write this, after sleeping for about 10 minutes, she’s crying yet again. She seems to get quite fussy in the evenings.
