Sweet Annelyn has officially been in our family for 6 months. I couldn’t imagine life without her. She is so sweet and quiet, most of the time. I finally figured out what makes her laugh, I have to make a lot of loud and silly noises. She has been sticking her tongue out all the time, I am thinking maybe it means her teeth are working their way up to the surface. Her sleep is still not great. Some nights she sleeps a 5/6 hour stretch then another 3/4 hours but other nights she is up every 2/3 hours.
We don’t have her official 6 month visit with the doctor until next week, but weighing her at home with Kenny, then Kenny weighing himself without her, it seems like she is gaining. Guessing about a pound and a half. Can’t wait for next week to see how much she has gained on their scale. I am still power pumping at night at least 3 times a week, I try to do it every night after she is in bed, but sometimes I am just too tired. The next evening after she nurses I then give her the milk that I pumped the night before. Other things I have continued are drinking a ton of water, olvatine, and gatorade. Along with taking legendairy milk supplements. Looking at last month and this month beside each other it really looks like she has grown and started filling out more.
