Sienna is such a sweet baby. She has been more of a cry baby the last few days, but I guess that and sleeping is what babies do best. But all the nurses come in and tell us how beautiful and sweet she is and we have to agree. I love doing skin to skin with her and giving her kisses on the head and smelling her sweet baby smell. I can't wait for her to come home and be able to do this all day long without all the yucky cords all over and in her.
While it does stink that she is in the hospital but there are a few perks. I don't want anyone to think I am happy she is there when I say these things, but the circumstances are what they are so I might as well find some good in it.
-Matt and I have free baby sitters whenever we want
-My alarm is set with specific times to pump and I never have to stay up longer then 15 mins
-I only have to change about 1 diaper a day. I also haven't had to purchase diapers for her. Win win
-I will have a nice supply of breast milk in the freezer for when Matt and I want to go on a date.
-We get to stay at the Ronald McDonald house and have volunteers cook meals for us every night and eat the leftovers for lunch.
-We get free massages and have other fun activities planned for us by the RMH.
