My Didymos is Here!



Oh it's here! This color is my very favorite! I don't even want to wash it. I want to use it now, not wait for it to air dry! Here's my first time trying it out. It looks like a bit of a mess!

I tried a cross carry first. I have no idea how to make those cools knots, I'm going to practice. 

Want to learn too? The best youtube videos are baby wearing Faith and wrapping Rachael. 







3 months!







Today

Today I snuggle with all these smiles....tomorrow at this time I walk back into my classroom and leave these wonderful 12 weeks behind. They flew by so quickly.

Leaving Jenna

This week I returned to work. I had mixed feelings. I was excited to teach because I do love teaching. However leaving Jenna made me sad, I wanted to stay home and have fun. She couldn't have a better babysitter than Lovey. 

Regardless I just want to stay home with them and hang out. My biggest worry is that working will mess up breast-feeding. I worry that my supply will tank because were not nursing. Pumping is definitely a job. It's hard. It's not easy. I see how people quit so I'm definitely looking for support. I pump three times a day or more. I pump after she eats at 6:30 again at 9:30 at 12 and at 3 unless I skip school and leave early. 

All in all we survived. Jenna drank from a bottle. I pumped and taught. It was a good week overall.

Two Month Appointment



One word

Shots

I wonder who will cry worse?
We plan to meet Will there. 

Fingers crossed our car ride goes well. Yesterday to Costco wasn't easy. However home from Costco, after sleeping in the Tula was a breeze.

Getting measured!

Weight- 11.3 lbs. 50%
Height- 23.25" 90%
Head circumference- 15" 50%

The appointment went really well. Will took the honor of holding down her arms. Jenna got two shots in one leg and one in the other, she first got something orally in a syringe. 



Jenna is also getting over a diaper rash, however I learned it was yeast. Bumps...so if you have advice about that please give it.
I got an rx for nystatin cream. I'm just bummed I can't use cloth diapers for even longer now. 


Good happy car rides there and back, makes for one happy Mama!!

Pumpkins

During Will's week home from work we went to a local church where they sell pumpkins. A good friend took these awesome photos of us. 

Yes Jenna is "just" in a onesie and jeggins...it ended up being 89 degrees and I just couldn't put her in the pumpkin cardigan and hat I intended. Don't worry we will take more pictures once it feels like fall here.

Sleeping with a Piglet

Jenna sleeps pretty soundly for two to three hours, but then this starts!

We have been kicked out of Mama's room so far. Hopefully Will will let us stay!
