Home and Happy

So let's see after a 2 and a half week stay in Labor & Deliver I gave birth to my little mermaid girl Ariel on

May 4th, 2011 at 8:37am she weighed 4lbs 13.6oz and was 18.5" long 

which was big for being so early. She did really well on had one rough day where she had to get a chest tube cause she gave herself an air pocket that compressed her lung. It was done in a day and taken out the day after. She came home Friday and yesterday was her first well visit and she now weighs 5lbs 13.5oz and is 19" long! So she's gaining good, we're working on getting the hang of breastfeeding, right now she gets both sides before she gets a bottle and a boob binky when she fusses. It's tough work but I'm willing to do it, I want to breastfeed her for at least a year, and me and pumping are not working well. Especially since someone is getting mad when I pump *ahem Ariel ahem*.
