A week and a bit at home.
Kaia is doing well. She is starting to breastfeed a little better and Brian and I are sleeping in shifts so we don't die of exhaustion. For the time that I'm sleeping he finger feeds Kaia. This makes me feel a little better as we can at least monitor how much she is taking during those two feeds and I'm happy to report it's no more than what she 'should' be taking for her weight, about 2 oz. I figure if she wasn't getting enough via the boob, she would likely be STARVING during those feeds and demand to eat a lot more. So this makes me happy.
I do need your help though.
I am planning to send out a birth announcement card for Kaia, but would like to acknowledge Aidan on it. My question is how should I go about doing that? Should I say something like "remembered and missed at this special time, big brother Aidan"? or more subtle and put at the beginning of the card "we joyfully introduce our second child, Kaia"
I don't want the card to be ABOUT Aidan, as this is Kaia's moment to shine...but I would like it to acknowledge him as part of our family. Someone recently posted a rainbow baby birth birth announcement that they saw in the paper that acknowledged a dead child and I thought that announcement did a pretty good job, but now I can't find it. If that was you, please let me know what it said.
Also, if you have any ideas can you reply soon as the site that I want to order my announcements from has a sale that ends tomorrow!
Kaia is waking up so I must go and leave you with a picture!!!
That's all for now!
