Easter/Spring Pictures

Well, I haven't posted in a while because I've had bronchitis. I'm better now! Although I was out sick, I still managed to get Kynlie's Easter/Spring pictures made. I think they turned out just GREAT! She's was a good sport, even though that day was the day she decided to start pulling off her bows....of all days! I do believe we have a picture taken baby on our hands. Good thing, because we have a really expensive camera I need to be using a lot more.
Here is our beautiful girl!

We have a good weekend coming up. It's my niece Bailee's 14th birthday (hard to believe she's 14) and we have her tack meet to attend...can't wait, I love watching her do track (Although, Cheerleading is my all time favorite...that will be coming soon)Then Sunday we are all getting together to celebrate Bailee's birthday. I'm hoping the weather will be nice so we can walk down to my brothers house and put Kynlie in the stroller. We only live a few streets over. Let's Pray for SUNNY WARM weather!!!

I do believe you are right and you definitely have a picture taking baby on your hands!! SHE IS PRECIOUS. Those pictures are so cute. I hope it is sunny and warm so you can walk her all over the place outside.

Oh my goodness, these pictures are adorable. I know why I have a boy . . . I would not be able to reign in the tutus & tiaras if I had a girl. Ha!

As far as the bf goes, I would say do what feels right. 7 months is about when my pumping started sliding off (he was eating more solids & I got a fever for 5 days & I don't think I ever recovered the supply I lost). At the end, I was getting 1-1.5 ounces per pump. The most I ever pumped was 8 ounces per pump.

I tried Fenugreek at the full dosage, took my pump to the lactation lady to make sure it was working right, pumped extra (one hour after he nursed for an entire week), but it never returned.

We made it to 9 months on the reserve milk. I was going to nurse morning & evening, but it was just easier to give him formula all the time after he bit me. I loved nursing, but it's a relief to be done. I was stressing over it way too much at the end.

Do what feels right. You're an awesome mommy for making it 7 months. If you're not pumping enough but she's satisfied when you're with her, you might try supplementing her bottles with the liquid formula. We did this while I was weaning & he didn't care one bit. Hope that helps!
