Happy One Month Clarabelle!

Topic : Daily Glimpses

I can’t believe it’s been a month since Clarabelle was born!

Welcome Clarabelle June!

Lots has changed here…as in our whole life!

Things are settling in a bit more around here.
Not gonna lie, the first few weeks were a bit rough…ladies, if you’re breast feeding, it gets better.
I promise.
: )

Clarabelle is sleeping more…most of the time.

Every day is different but for the most part the days are full of sleep and around 6:00 p.m., she’s up and about (and when I say “about” I mean she wants to be held and that’s about it!).
She does sleep during the night but certainly wakes to eat, be changed, and then get lulled to sleep again.

We’ve done baths, hundreds of outfit changes, and now we’ve introduced bottles!
Travis is now able to help with the feedings, which is great bonding for him and means more sleep for me- SWEET.

: )

Here’s Little Miss’s One Month Picture…

Hi everyone!

And another angle…

She’s making her “bird” face here….

The first month has been great!
Lots of joy, lots of tears with the hormones…, lots of sleepless nights, lots of diapers, lots of smiles, lots of attempted lullabies, and so much gratitude that Clarabelle June chose us to be her parents.

Have a happy weekend… and remember to be grateful cause I am being reminded more and more of what I have to be grateful for every day~

    Emma, I have the same problem with Tess who is not quite 22 months. Still nursing and sometimes refuses to eat. We add raw sprouted protein to her smoothies. Not a huge amount but just a little. She will almost always eat eggs, pancakes and bacon (I'd very easily be ovolactovegetarian but Daddy is a meat eater) or eggs, guacamole, Brown rice and black beans. Or avocado. Those are my only two "go to" meals. And carbs. She'll eat cookies or crackers for days. Glad the doctor was supportive, I've been thinking about going there as well. I'm sick of the weaning conversation.

      Scrambled eggs are a hit so I'm going to keep offering, avocado too.. I was impressed by Little Flower, it is so refreshing to be in a place that supports breastfeeding. Not a formula pamphlet in the place. And applause for continuing to breastfeed? Makes me want to go daily! It's far by driving standards (least from our house) but worth it to be able to not get hassled about parenting choices.

    Wow, I'm so glad we aren't the only ones who have gone through all these ups and downs with nursing. G is still nursing strong at 14.5 months. There were times when I swore he was weaning himself (8/9 months, and I cried and cried), and nowadays lately he nurses like a newborn. Some days I have so much milk that I'm still spurting and needing nursing pads, other days I think he looks at me like, "Turn it on, mama!" I think the lesson after we have put all this time in it should be: our babies and our bodies know what to do! :)
