This & That

Georgia is 10.5 weeks old. I have two grey hairs. I have no idea if these two things are related or not! ;)
Speaking of hair, oh my gosh. I thought I'd maybe escaped the dreaded post-partum hair loss epidemic, but nope, not immune. I have no idea how I have any hair left, what with the amounts I've been shedding in the shower. If only all of my hair was falling out at that rate; it'd be nice not to have to worry about shaving my legs!
Georgia has been dribbling like crazy these past few days. I automatically assumed that drooling babies = teething, so panicked, thinking her teeth were coming out early. I've run my fingers over her gums and can't see anything, so hopefully we're safe there for a while longer. The dribbling has coincided with her hands finding her mouth constantly, so it might be that. I already have a Sophie the Giraffe toy ready for her for the future months, but gave it to her early - she's been chowing down on poor Sophie's head already!
We're still solely breastfeeding at the moment - it's been a struggle, but I'm happy with how we're going. Georgia feeds on the breast during the day, and we give a top-up bottle just before bed, to encourage her to have a good sleep. Touch wood, but it seems to be going well for us so far. I pump twice a day - morning and bedtime. I don't get a lot, but I'm not as worried about the amounts, especially now that I have a freezer stash I can start working through.

Hubby gets back from New Zealand trip #2 tonight. We're hopefully going out for dinner tomorrow night, just the two of, for our belated 2-year anniversary. (It was yesterday, while he was away. I spent it with a screaming baby.) It'll be the first time we go out since Georgia was born - aside from a trip to the dentist a few weeks ago, which absolutely does NOT count as couple time, ugh. I'm actually looking forward to it; I'm drained after this single parenting gig, and I've really missed Jase. Plus, her grandparents are itching to get their hands on her for the night!

I love how similar Georgia and my little guy are. He's been drooling up a storm as well. I tried giving him Sophie, but he can't quite grip her and prefers his hands anyway. :)

She's precious, as usual. I forgot I had a Sophie! I'm pulling that out today for D. He's a crazy drool machine, and we are most definitely teething...I remember 10-12 weeks being the most difficult time for D until now. I think it helps to feel that you're never really alone...I'm right there with you with the screaming baby and no husband!

She's just adorable! I hope y'all enjoy your date! We're going out on our first date without Elliana this Friday to see Man of Steel. I don't know if I'm more nervous or excited!

I feel for you on the single parenting gig, my husband travels 3 days a week most weeks, IT SUCKS. It gets easier though! As baby gets older it gets easier and easier. As to the drooling, mine started drooling at about 3 months and I was SURE he was gonna get teeth early...he got his first tooth a month ago at 9 months =)

Considering the hair loss only usually starts at 3-4 months post id say you were right at the start of it. I swear i lost half of my volume and only stopped at around 7 months post.

I also got all my grey hair after my first pregnancy and WAY WAY WAY more has shown up since the second.

No one tells you this crap before kids do they! argggggg :)
