Happy St. Patrick's Day! (Blogoversary, and Update too)

I have always loved St. Patrick's Day. Being part Irish, it has always been a fun holiday. It is also the day that I found our Alice was a girl, two years ago! I know a lot of my family was pulling for the baby being born today, but he had other plans!

Yesterday was an important day, here in my blog world. It was my blogoversary! Granted, I have technically been blogging for longer than a year, at my old blog, but since I posted about once a blue moon there I don't really count that. In the past year, I have met some wonderful friends! I consider myself extremely blessed to have each and every one of you, both as readers (your comments are like hugs!) and friends. I have not met most of you, but I consider you more dear friends than most I do know on real life! I love keeping up with you and your families, and know if I ever need advice that you will all come through with great support!

I apologize for being a bit behind on comments. I have been extremely tired. I'll be catching up soon though :) I feel a little disconnected not knowing what has been going on with each of you.

I hope everyone has a lucky St. Patrick's Day! I know the luck of the Irish has been extremely lucky for me! Now I just hope that Sean can manage to buy our annual corned beef and cabbage, so I can make that for dinner! This year I won't be having a Killian's with dinner, as we are so new to breastfeeding (though I have plenty pumped already, so I could, but I don't want to introduce a bottle for a couple more weeks!).

Speaking of breastfeeding, my milk came in yesterday. Well, it is still a mix of colostrum and milk (you know that really yellow/watery mix). Harold Jack is doing well. He has a bit of a lazy latch sometimes, but I know he is getting plenty! He is a big spit-upper! Alice hardly ever spit up, so the umpteen million outfit changes is new. Though not a bad thing. Maybe he'll be able to wear most of his 0-3 month clothes before he outgrows them! We have a pediatrician appointment for tomorrow afternoon, so it will be interesting to see how well he is doing. I have a hunch that he may have reflux. When he spits up or burps, it smells very acidic (almost vomit smelling).

Anyway, Happy St. Patty's Day!

Congratulations again! You are forgiven for being a little behind. You gave birth. We don't expect you to be on your computer constantly! Enjoy the little guy. How does Alice feel about him? By the way, I like H.J.

I'm surprised you are even posting already! Not any Irish in our family, but I still put the kids in green.

Um, you are not behind at all! And you are even thinking about cooking dinner - that floors me. Glad everybody is doing well!

Congratulations! I am terribly behind on my blog reading because of travel and lack of Internet. I am so excited for you and I'm loving that sweet baby's face! I hope you are all adjusting and you are getting a little rest. Congrats again Mama!
