JINX (although, I don't believe in those things, but you get my point)
The past few weeks have been so, so hard. We aren't too sure what is going on, but I have basically narrowed it down to:
b) low milk supply
c) just plain..boredom?
Penelope cries mostly during the day, and is happy and calm when we go outside for walks or for a fun outings. I go out a lot during the day, but it's exhausting to be constantly pushing my stroller, and where we live there isn't really anything to walk to.
We've actually started supplementing my chubby monkey with formula (PLEASE no comments about that!), since I feel empty all the time, and she calms down when I give her the formula. We're just trying to do whatever will help her, but I am struggling with never knowing what to do.
At our recent doctor's visit we were told to basically just keep doing what we're doing. My doctor said not too worry if I have to supplement with formula, and if she seems to want it to just give it to her (even though she's weighing in at the 75th percentile).
ALSO, we're moving this weekend! I'm both excited and nervous about moving. Excited because we're near lots of shops and fun things to do, so I can actually get out on my own and be outside for a good chunk of the day. Nervous because I'm going to be home alone a lot more, since my Mom won't be around, and I'm already feeling exhausted and at the end of my rope.
I'm off to enjoy whatever peace and quiet I have while my child naps.
she's still my little angel!
