Project Life Tuesday - Week 38

Welcome to Project Life Tuesday 2011! If you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you will stay awhile. I'm Jessica and I am participating in Project Life, a different way to record our lives by taking one photo a day. This was inspired by the fabulous Becky Higgins who has put together a wonderful kit to make this challenge easier.

Don't worry, I'm not leaving traditional scrapbooking behind. This just gives me the opportunity to focus my scrapbooking on trips and things that are important to me right now and not get all bogged down with every birthday, dinner, and holiday that comes along.

Each Tuesday, I will post my pictures/journaling from the previous week. Project Life Tuesday was created by Jessica Turner over at The Mom Creative and she hosts a linky for readers to link up their pictures. So if you want to join in or want to see others POTW, just click the Project Lift button at the top of this post.

And finally, my POTW:

Saturday - We brought Madalynne home today from the hospital, this is the first photo of her in her car seat. We hadn't been home for more than an hour went I went into the living room to find Juan and Maddie apparently watching a Barcelona soccer game. When I asked Juan what he was doing, he responded that Maddie told him she wanted to watch it. We are currently supplementing her feeding with formula as I am still having some issues in the milk department.
Sunday - Juan is absolutely amazing with Madalynne.  I went into her room today to find her daddy reading her a book. I swear she is enthralled with his voice and just watches him intently, even though she can't focus on him at this point. They both make my heart hurt I love them so much!

Monday - Today we went to a Lactation Consultant and finally got Madalynne to latch using a nipple shield. The photo is a bit racey, so I am not posting it here; but it was the sweetest moment of my life. She nursed for 30 minutes and using an SNS she drank 47mL of formula and 28mL of breast milk simply amazing as I have not been able to pump more then 3-5mL at a time.

Tuesday - Ok, I know a five day old newborn can't smile and it is just reflex or gas; but how darned cute is she?

Wednesday - We are giving Maddie a sponge bath every three days and washing her hair.  This is the second time we've done this and she HATES the sponge bath, but LOVES the hair washing part. The nursery nurse told us it was because the warm water on their head is familiar to them from the womb.

Thursday - I am getting nothing crafty done, but I am determined to at least get some good photos. Today I layed her on the boppy to get a picture of this adorable hat! LOVE how this one turned out.

Friday - I saw this pose somewhere on line and decided I needed a similar shot of Daddy holding Maddie.  She is so little right now!

Thanks for visiting me this week. If you are sick of all the newborn photos, sorry; but it is probably going to be like that for awhile.  :)
