//I have started weaning Em off breast milk. Since my mom died my supply has declined. I tried so hard to keep it up that week but I just wasn't making enough. Side note, no one told me how easy it was to make a formula bottle! I no longer have to stress about her next bottle, or if I'll make enough, or if I have enough in the freezer. I was home the whole week before mom passed and I used a large supply of frozen milk, but the next week we were home I blew through the rest of my supply! When we got home we bought formula and I only planned to give her a few formula bottles a day but then I realized that this was so much easier and less stressful than trying to up my supply and stress myself out more about life. So I'm proud that I gave her breast milk exclusively for 5 months. I'm going to start her on solids next week once I go grocery shopping...wish me luck and any suggestions are helpfully!
//I have three more people to shop for Christmas and one birthday. Now I need to have a serious present wrapping party....with a cocktail or two because this momma isn't breast feeding anymore! :)...(yes I've had a cocktail since she's been born but I'm always nervous about it and hardly finish it so I'm excited to be able to throw a few back this holiday!...#don'tjudgeme)
//I got new glasses and I love them!!! I've never loved a new pair of glasses. I usually buy new glasses and stick with my old ones for a while. (photo below)
//This might sound strange, but ever since mom's passing I have been researching about death, autopsies, anatomy and options for end of life care. I think it's crazy how many things are out there about that stuff. One of my fav clips to watch are 'Ask a Mortician'. She answers questions about death and explains how everything works during and after death. I find it fascinating because its something I've never learned anything about. She also has a book that I'm quiet interested in reading called Smoke Get in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty. You can read the first few pages on amazon.
//On a lighter note, we got Christmas jammies!
