I won’t try to fill you in on all the details of the first 2.5 weeks of Wendy’s life.  I’ll give you the brief overview.  Wendy is such a sweet baby with lots of expressions and funny faces.  She hiccups a lot, likes to squirm her arms and legs, and likes to dress in cute outfits.

We discovered a few days ago that she had diaper rash…pretty bad, too.  I think we weren’t changing her diaper enough.  So, to let it heal, we’ve been using disposables for a while and lots of butt paste.  Another thing we’re still trying to work out is her feeding issues.  She’s still gulping and gasping and swallowing a lot of air.  Wendy then has a lot of gas and discomfort in her belly.  So, she cries.  A lot.  I’ve been in touch with a lactation consultant at the hospital and we’re trying to work it all out.  We’ve been reading up on colic and will ask the dr. about it tomorrow at her well-baby check-up.  I’ve heard/read that she may benefit from probiotics to help her digestive system along.  I’m also trying to cut out dairy for a while and see if there’s any improvement.

Anyway, Zach is back to work and having a hard time getting anything done.  He is being a great husband and dad, at the expense of grading midterms.  I’m sure we’ll balance everything better soon.  As I continue to heal from the c-section and I’m able to walk Teddy, walk with Wendy, and drive, Zach won’t have quite as much to do at home.  He’s been doing a lot for us.  Let me see if I can put any pictures up here…
