Jan 31-Feb. 8th First walk, Hilary Everyday, 3wks old, Snow Day

Jan. 31st, Day 31:
Enjoying our first walk and first stroller ride!

 She insisted on pushing!

 Love this boy and his curls!

 Best big brother and sister ever!

 We wore her out today!

Cherishing every min of this time with him, as I can feel nursing is coming to an end :(! "I'm a good mama, I'm a good mama!" I keep telling myself this to help me feel better!

Feb. 1st, Day 32:
Just an average day in the life of an absent minded mom, at least the car was was in my own garage when the keys got locked inside.

 Right where I left them, inside, ugh

I looked up and saw Charley doing this, lol!

Feb 2nd, Day 33:
Empty cart = First SOLO trip to the store!!!

And look who is 3wks old today! He is already 9lbs, he is eating 3 1/2oz and is staying awake about 30-45min after feedings before going back to bed. He has been eating around 10pm and going until 6:30! He is a great baby! 

Feb. 3rd, Day 34:
My lil men who have my heart

 Charley couldn't go without having her picture! 
Brady got an award today for always giving 100%, way to go to Brady, you make you're mama proud!

Feb. 4th, Day 35:
Putting off making dinner for the first time one more night and braving all the kids out by myself, call me crazy!!

 We love Costa Vida!

Feb. 5, Day 36:
Another good report from at the dentist, no cavities 
Sorry for the blurry pic!

Feb. 6th, Day 37:
It's Snowing but poor Brady had to go to school!

Since Brady had to go to school he's sweet teacher sent us a pic of the class outside enjoying the snow!

Corby's first snow!

She's a little crazy about him, wonder where she gets it???

Feb. 7th, Day38:
Resemble much?? Brady top and Corby bottom, both a day old

And one of all three b/c most think he looks more like Charley

Feb. 8th, Day 39:
Guess the blue toenail peek a booing through shows you how much I love my Toms! Too bad I don't have any more :) I might have a Toms problem too!

Jan. 27-230th Corby's 2wk Check Up & Hilary Everyday

Day 27: 
Determined and hopeful that this or my oil coming tomorrow is going to increase my milk supply.

Day 28: 
Check out the NoseFrida, never thought I would personally be suck snot out of my son's nose, never say never!

Corby's 2wk check up
He now weighs 8.6lbs and has grown an inch! Charley was thrilled to play doctor!

Day 29:
Perks of having a big sister! I told Charley I had to take a shower and she told me she'd "watch"  Corby for me. She grabbed her stool and book and followed me to the bathroom so she could "read" to him!

 He is so much more alert and awake more these days! Last night he ate at 10pm and didn't wake up until 6am this morning, yippee!!!

Yep this just happened! Bring on the milk! First time to do acupuncture and surprisingly it didn't hurt a bit and yes I even had them in my boobies :)! Please ignore my tummy, remember I just had a baby! 

I want so badly to be that mom that can produce enough milk to provide everything my baby needs, but for some reason I can't. I lasted 6 months with Brady and 5 months with Charley and that was with never producing more than 2oz and having to supplement from the very beginning, pumping in between feedings, drinking more water than I thought possible, trying all natural supplements and even reglan this go around that I didn't last 2 days on b/c it jacked me up so bad! Quitting is so tempting but makes me feel so guilty every time I think about it, ugh!!! I have been praying I wouldn't stress over this and would be at peace not matter what. I have decided that if I do everything I know to help my supply and it doesn't work that It will help me feel better about quitting. Unfortunately, nursing,  giving a bottle, and pumping this mama of 3 doesn't have time for!  

Actually this one right in my pinky hurt a little!

Day 30:
Can't get over how perfect this lil man is

She can't get enough of him either!

Another great night, ate at 11pm last night and went until 6:50am this morning! So refreshing, thank you sweet boy!
