I have finally uploaded a new ticker for Jack! This counts his age rather than just saying I'm overdue and going to give birth at any moment. The cows are a bit tongue in cheek because I feel like a cow with all the breast feeding, pumping, etc.
At the pediatrician's office yesterday, the doctor told me that I have what they refer to in their office as "bionic" breast milk. Why you might ask? Because Jack gained 9 oz in FIVE days. She kindly reminded me that it's impossible to overfeed a breastfed baby, but I think I might be proving that theory wrong.
I did mention that I was worried that Jack would be the fat 4 year old on Maury just wearing a diaper, running around on stage, and screaming for more fried chicken, ice cream, and pizza. And I would be sitting on stage with my perm and Nascar letterman's jacket saying "he's just hungry all the time. I don't know what to do"! I would also be drinking a Big Gulp of course.
In other boob news, my milking machine is pretty effective. I'm able to get about 3-4 oz of milk in less than 5 minutes. MOO! We currently have about 60 oz in the freezer and would have more but we've been giving Jack 1 pumped bottle of 2.5 oz once a day to give my poor boobs a break.
Mooo moo mooooo. That's cow for "thanks for reading about my boobies".
