I figured that since I have a bit of down time I might get a post in. Hmmmm where to start? In the last week and then some we have hit a bit of a rough patch. Our little Miss Angelina is fine and dandy throughout the entire day, then as it comes to her last feeding of the night OH MY NELLY! Thinking about it gives me goosebumps everytime! Okay i’m being a bit dramatic, its not every night… More like every second night, but still. She screams, she cries (with tears running down her face), she shakes, she makes pukey noises, coughs because shes crying so much… I could keep going. My heart breaks just writing that. Seeing it is even worse. It actually makes me cry sometimes, exhaustion plus your beautiful baby girl sooo upset… it would hurt any womans heart. This is new for her though. For the most part she has been good, nothing too out of the oridinary worth complaining about BUT this new phase is a hard one. Now the mommy daddy team have decided that we need to conquer whatever this is and we actually start preparing ourselves at 7:00pm. I have now decided to try to be home by this time or minimizing the visits after this time (for now) so I can keep a very calm and quiet atmosphere for her. Crazy right?!? I swear my husband thinks I’m crazy! When I’m able to stay on track, this usually does the trick and its smooth sailing. (Knock on wood, knock knock, knock.) My theory is Angie is not here to ruin our lives so her little tiny body must be going through something if she’s acting like this. Perhaps teething?!? Thoughts, mothers out there reading this? Has anyone tried the teething necklace? I saw a baby wearing it the other day. its super cute… I just wonder if it works. Talk to me friends!!!
Other then that Angelina wakes up in the morning smiling and full of energy, talking and laughing like its nobodies business. So yesterday we were playing dress up and I totally tried to take some selfies with her. We all know that it takes more than one picture to get the perfect one. So can you imagine getting a 12 week old baby to look at the camera while capturing yourself at your best no makeup angle! Its easier then it sounds when you have Super Baby! I swear to you there are more than ten pictures ALL of which she is looking directly in the camera! Keep in mind, after every couple of pictures I would move around a bit, change our positioning… Yet everytime I put my hand up to take a picture… She had her glamour, attitude, ohhh hayyyyy face on. All I can say is WORK IT GIRL!! I couldn’t be more proud of her. Pure confidence already! I attached three pictures below so you can have a looksys for yourself! Amazing right?!?!
Last but not least, I recieved a couple of emails in the last little while asking if i’m still breastfeeding, so I thought I would share on here since I gave you the play by play action in the beginning. Drum roll pleaseeeeee, darummmm darummm darummmm YES! I survived! I’m at 3 months and still going. I can’t believe it myself sometimes, but I actually did it. Probably one of the most challenging things i’ve accomplished in my life. But I guess the saying no pain, no gain proves true here! Yes, I am still taking Blessed Thistle and Fenugreek capsules daily and right before she falls asleep I give her one bottle of formula to fill her belly for a long and good nights rest. But other then that this Milk Factory is up and running 24/7, WOOT WOOT!
Speaking of which, its time to open up shop!
Toodles for now!

Beautiful! Both of you! Xo
Beautiful! I feel you on on the last feed freak out time, I’ve heard from many that it’s very common. All the days stimulation catching up on them. Keep doing what you are doing with the calming time before her fussy hour. That’s exactly what worked for me. Make sure she’s gets her naps all in. And with routine equals less fussiness. You are doing awesome parita! 🙂
Lovely pictures Pari n Angelina. Keep it up our sweet Angelina. Your smiles always makes me laugh. You are winning my heart. Love you.
