She was so funny last night. She was having a huge fit (missed a nap and was over tired) so I decided to put her down and let her cry it out. But first I was going to change her diaper. She loves having her butt wiped btw. I get her naked and she looks at me, stops crying...and starts chuckling! Like funny ha ha. I didn't get it on tape, but this was her first time!

ISn't that tape of her and Lucy cute? I was talking to Amelia about rolling over and Lucy thought I Was talking to her. Silly puppy.

On a sad note I have decided to give up pumping my milk. I continue to pump every night and get no more than .2 ounces. That does me no good. In case you didn't know she wont breastfeed anymore so I have been pumping and bottle feeding it. Because of work I haven't been able to keep it up, and I'm losing my supply. I'm so sad! I worked so hard and I feel like a failure by giving in.

DO NOT feel like a failure! I was there with both boys. I did nurse until Brandon was 10 months so I didn't feel so bad. But with Elijah I gave up way before I should have...just used the excuse I didn't have enough for him. He took my milk fine; no allergies. I didn't have a good enough excuse therefore I was a failure with him. But I'm over it. lol. Ya...get a video of her laughing at you as you wipe her bootie. My boys will get a kick out of it.

Hello my dear Cousin!
what a GORGEOUS girl she is! I am glad to see your blog... I always ask mom about you and Mish and all the kids :).

Don't feel guilty about giving up nursing. I had the exact same issue with Emily. It was hard to switch emotionally, but she has grown up just fine! Em just started second grade and Liam is in kindergarten!

my email is deschutes73@gmail.com. Please pass that on to your family. I would love to stay in touch!

All my love,
Cathy
