Aubrey's Three Week Update

Posted by Andria at 9:32 PM

Week number three marks the start of colic. Poor baby Aubrey has had a few bouts of that this week and its been hard to see her go through it. I know it's not just crying but actual tummy pains. We're hoping to get some herbs within the next few days and get her all fixed up. Other than that It's been a blessing continuing to watch her grow and change. She's looking so different to me lately and I'm starting to see her filling out around her face. All of us are just crazy in love with her and there aren't very many times throughout the day where Aubrey's not in my arms. We introduced our Moby wrap this week and you can tell how much she loves being in it by how serene she looks. So yeah, among other things, we're now official "baby wearers" ;) She's definitely shown more of a need to be held than Aizlynn did but, I truly enjoy holding my babies so it's no biggie. She's only this tiny once right?!

One special event that happened in Aubrey's third week of life is her very first Easter! We had a wonderful day and both my girls looked adorable if I do say so myself. We visited family and everyone went crazy seeing Aubrey in her fluffy pink dress and giant bow. She didn't get to participate in the egg hunt like her big sissy but she did end up getting THREE different baskets from the "Easter bunny". Already getting spoiled lol!

I can say it now!

Up until recently I always felt an inner hesitation when people would ask if I was breastfeeding. I'd say yes but in the back of my mind I would think "for now". I guess I felt as if I would fail. I kept waiting for something to just go wrong and cause me to stop. After all we did start out with some challenges and I'm still dealing with soreness but after over three weeks in, I feel I can say it now. I'm a nusring mom!  This has meant so much to me and it's almost been like a redemption for me given how badly it went with Aizlynn. I know for some women this is nothing but, I'm very proud to have achieved successful breastfeeding. We did it! Now the next goal I'd like to reach is making it to at least twelve months but for now I'm taking one day at a time..

How adorable in her little bib!!

What brand are you using for baby wearing? I am looking for the perfect one to add to my registry for my shower!

Also, congrats on the breastfeeding! I hope I will be successful at it as well!

Hi Paige! It's called a Moby wrap and we absolutely love it! It takes some getting used to with learning the different wrap techniques but once you get it down it's awesome.
