Our little munchkin turned 6 weeks old yesterday!
I don’t know if I should say “I can’t believe it’s been 6 weeks already” or “I can’t believe it’s ONLY been 6 weeks”…
This past week she has become a much happier baby, and I have become a much happier mother. We switched to formula. I am still trying to breastfeed at night and pump a little, but I have never had a great supply, so we’ll see how long that lasts. The important thing is she seems MUCH happier. She is sleeping better at night (in her crib) and during the day. Plus she plays a little longer (sometimes by herself) and I am getting more time to do things I need to do. Like wash dishes (lots of bottles) and water flowers. Plus trips out, I do not have to rush around trying to get in and out before she screams. And when she does, she can more easily be soothed with her pacifier! Even at night she will wake up and I can just “shhhhh” her to sleep with some help from the music from her crib toy and our favorite pacifier. Yeahh!! We are not completely surprised by the changes on formula, BUT so pleased!
Last week we had portraits done at JCPenney, but here are a couple of my snapshots from the last week… (yes completely posed!)
