Alexsa sat up on her own today!! She's been able to sit for a few seconds at a time, but today it was long enough for me to call Barry over to look before she put her hands down to support herself. :) This was right after she was sitting w/o her hands for support. :)
Ok, she's really gotten used to this camera (go figure - I shove it in her face every day). She had a bad day of teething and not-napping. In other words, Miss Cranky Pants. As soon as I pull out the camera, she does this:
Didn't get any pics today so these are from yesterday. I put her in her bouncer, and for the first time she liked it. She couldn't really bounce - I think I have it a bit too high. What she liked was the activity center in front. Once she realized she could move around she got a bit freaked out and that's about when she was done w/ it. Next time I'll lower it a bit and see how she does :)
I guess this should be called the Not-Breastfeeding Update. :(
After my Appendectomy, my milk supply, which was already almost nothing, really took a nosedive. I didn't do anything as far as pumping on Monday, the day of my surgery. On Tuesday I was able to pump once while in the hospital. It was hard to find a balance of sitting up and not squishing my just-cut-open belly and getting a good seal on the suction cups. Then Wednesday I was at my sister's most of the day and i don't remember what all I did. By the time I got back to work on Thursday I pumped my normal 2 times and got less than a 1/4 oz. Aggregate. That was the point I gave up. I just coudn't take an hour out of my work for that. SOOOO.... we are now soley on formula. :( It sucks. It stinks. Its expensive. It makes her spit up more. . But what can you do? At least she'll be starting on solids soon... in my head I feel like the cost might go down then... Am I dreaming?
This is how she falls asleep almost every time we put her down. Butt in the air, legs underneath her. I flip her over to be on her back, but half the time she'll curl right back into this position... Isn't that funny?
