My poor nips

I'm pretty sure Andrew is hitting his 6 week growth spurt right on schedule because he has been wanting to eat every 60 to 90 minutes this morning.  And I'm not talking about just a little snack. I mean he is eating for 15 - 20 minutes each time.  Makes me a little afraid that my supply won't have time to replenish before the next time he is squawking for a meal.  I do have some pumped milk that I can heat up for him, but I need that for tomorrow night when J and I go out for our belated anniversary dinner (J's mom will be here to watch Andrew).

Oh, and what goes in is coming out, too. He is tearing through the diapers like there's no tomorrow.  I continue to be amazed at the amount of poo that this tiny little person can produce.  On the bright side, he is no longer so angry when we change his diapers. I guess he is getting used to the process since it happens so often.

One positive development today is that I have a lead on a daycare provider. She is very close by so it's convenient. The downside is she doesn't have an opening until August, but we may be able to get by until then. J's mom can help out for July to get us through.  The woman is emailing me the contract to go over and we are going to set up an interview for next week. Fingers crossed that it works out.

And the last thing for today, I finally get to go to the gym!  J is at the dentist right now, but when he gets home I get to make my first trip to the gym in 6 weeks. I can't wait!  Hopefully I don't die on the treadmill.

Now the obligatory picture of Andrew in all of his adorable-ness:
