A good day!

Last night I was so frustrated because I was having trouble breastfeeding Mr. Joshua. He just screamed and screamed and wouldn't latch on so I'd finally just give him a bottle of milk I'd pumped. I finally called SCN to ask for advice ... they suggested OVOL! Little man had a sore tummy and I didn't even figure it out. It worked and today has been great in the eating department! Woo hoo! The public health nurse came today ... she weighed him (6 pounds 7 ounces - he's gained 2 ounces since coming home!) and checked him out and answered some of our questions. It's been good a day -- especially because I got a nap!

We've been watching curling on tv all week. Matt loves to curl and does so 2 nights a week in the winter. Joel has been so cute because he's been "curling" - brushing with his golf club, holding the broom and throwing the rock (which is the letter magnets on our fridge!) It's amazing to watch his little mind and imagination. I'll try and get some pics of this!

Edit: Ovol is an over the counter medicine for babies with colic ... it has peppermint in it which I think helps soothe a sore tummy.

Joshua looks so tiny in the bassinet! :)
Glad you guys had a good day! What is OVOL? I'm totally clueless!
Hope tomorrow is just as good as today
