Kate's First Week
Kate's first week at home was a learning experience for all involved. After spending the weekend, the parents left Monday morning, while Jon and Jen took Kate back to Bethesda for a checkup. All Kate was really interested in was sleeping, making feeding much more complicated. Jen and Kate struggled to figure out breastfeeding, while waiting for Jen's milk to come it. In the meantime, Dad was feeding Kate with his finger and a syringe. Nobody (except Kate) got much sleep, and the week was filled with lots of emotional highs and lows. In the end, however, the time spent as a family was a great experience and gave us all a chance to bond as a family.
