Lilou Elsa Franzen

time flies and today our little Lilou turns two weeks! So much has happened in these two weeks and i will not be able to write it all now. It has been tough two weeks with lots of pain and illness, but of course also much joy and nice moments.

I will not write about birth this time, more about what Lilou and our life together is like so far. She sleeps ALOT and is very easy and satisfied. Since i don’t breastfeed we know exactly how much she drinks, and that she gets enough of food. This takes lots of stress away from me and you can almost see how she is growing. We also realise that filippa was probably very hungry the first month of her life, since we dont remember that she slept at all this much. I am so happy i decided to go for bottle straight away!

Another difference is of course that filippa is around, taking lots of attention and time. Another reason why i am so happy lilou just sleeps. I can do lots of things with filippa, even if i still have lots of house hold things to do. Filippa is very caring and proud of her sister, but doesnt really want to hold or feed her. she think she is heavy and smell bad from the mouth=) haha! she also wants my attention and wants to play and cuddle. kom å mys med mej mamma, mamma vill du leka me mej? Mamma, Mamma, MAMMA!!! Gah, defeinitely gets a bit stressful at times. and i am not very strong with stress at the moment. the first night in hospital was very cute with filippa and lilou. filippa really took the mamma role and fed, comforted and changed diapers. it was her baby! she stayed awake until 11am and got up with us at 4 again to feed lilou. now she can be a bit to hard handed with her, but mostly she is very caring. we also didnt get the best start since we all got sick with flu and mage darm when we got back from hospital, so filippa and lilou couldnt cuddle like filippa wanted. lots of NO, no kisses filippa, wash your hands, oh, cover your moth when coughing!!! GAH!

My hormones have been pretty stable, but a few breakdowns have i had. normal, but doesnt make them easier. All sickness has really not helped, and then i got mjölkstockning on the 26th.

27th: i go to Mette to get pills for my breasts, helps straight away
28th: we celebrate our second xmas with mum, dad, ruth, nina and felix. i am crying because filippa is so angry and weird, probably a mix of her being sick and the changes in the family. it feels as if my eyes are full of tears just ready to fly out for smallest little matter.
