Weekly Update: 10/16/06
It's one of those rare moments when I'm awake and the rest of the family is asleep. It's just me and the cat right now. So in this moment of blissful quiet, let me post an update on all of us.
Harriet continues to be a bottomless pit when it comes to eating. I'd hate to think how much formula we would be buying if she ate that exclusively. On a typical day she will cluster nurse from the time she wakes up in the morning until the time she goes to bed. Yesterday she nursed on and off from seven in the morning until one in the morning. By the end of these long days is when we start adding a formula bottle to the mix just so I can give myself time to recover as I'll often end up feeling physically ill from all that feeding. Thankfully it doesn't take long to recover from it!
Anyway, last night Ian noticed that Harriet seems to be out growing her #1 sized diapers. I had noticed the same thing but we switched brands and the generic brand seems to fit better (as they did with Sean too). Anyway, even the generic brand now seems a little tight around her waist. So I weighed Harriet and myself as I know how much I weigh. To our surprise, she's up to 15 pounds; Sean still weighed around 11 pounds up through 4 months old.
