Something new everyday

Today Claire held onto her pacifier for the first time. We gave it to her during church because she was restless and she grabbed onto it and moved it back and forth on her mouth and vigorously chewed on it. She was also much more ready with her smiles today and smiled at lots of people at church.

I only have about 6 ounces of breastmilk left in the freezer and production has been low lately...maybe due to the meds I'm taking for the infection. I am not ready to resign myself to supplementing with formula yet. We did get a bunch of free formula samples from the Doctor. I finish my course of meds Tues Morning. Hopefully production will pick up.

I find it so hard finding any ballance in my life. I can't seem to do things on any kind of regular schedule (With the exception of pumping milk.) Maybe I'm trying to do to much although in my mind, it's just the bare minimum. Well. It's time for bed. More on this later.

Dearest Jen, Don't be too hard on yourself. Pumping regularly is a job in itself. In the big picture, this time will pass so quickly. Enjoy each day as a gift. I think you are terrific and Mark and Claire do too, so what else matters at this point? Hugs, Mom
