Ozzy giggles when I'm laughing :)  He has suddenly started to have so much personality.  He'll be 12 weeks on Tuesday, time is flying!

Mae-Sorry your LO has reflux. What did you need to eliminate? I eliminated dairy and that seemed to help some but my little guy is still on medicine because his is really bad. We thought he was having seizures at one point.

 

Kelly-That's very cute about Ozzy! He seems like a really happy guy.

 

msdolphin-Glad to hear you're doing so well. Congrats on losing the pregnancy weight so fast!

 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Mae is good with dairy (thank goodness! my week without it I was going crazy trying to find something I would eat that did not involve milk or cheese... being from Wisconsin/Illinois can really affect your diet!) 

 

So far, spice gets to her. Today I finally got my diet to where I know what spices bother her (chili, wasabi, but not like... pepper or garlic) so now I am drinking a pepsi (ewwwww but we have no coffee atm) to test whether or not caffeine is a problem.

 

Also highly acidic foods (tomatoes, oranges, lemons, etc.) are bad, as are any food/drink made out of them. Ugh... but I guess thats fine as most tomato based foods I eat are also spicy. So pizza in this house is now white sauce pizza.

It's been a big week for Ellie over here--giggles, rolling over, and, unfortunately, her first cold.

 

I can't believe I have a three month old already!  Babies are so awesome at this stage--she likes to pull off when nursing to smile up at me.  So adorable!

Hehehe, I love that too, it's so sweet:) Caden mastered rolling over on Sunday and now it's his new favorite thing to do! So no more dashing away from the changing table to grab a diaper from the laundry basketblush.gif

 

Breastfeeding is making me lose too much weight. I don't want to get to too low of a weight since I was low when I got pregnant and ate ravenously (gained 20 pounds in 2 months!) to make up for it. Trying to eat more between meals! I NEVER want to be as hungry a prego lady as I was the first trimester! Not that I'm pregnant, just thinking in advance!

 

 

Also, we're moving in 3 weeks. Any good ideas on how to ramp up my milk supply? I only get about 2 ounces when I pump! Seems that Caden has my milk at a very good balance for what he needs. I need more though since I'll be leaving him with my mom or MIL when I am painting/fixing up the house pre-move.

pump more often... the more milk you express the more milk your body should make.

 

also, I find my production goes crazy when I have oatmeal. (but I have chronic oversupply and anything that can make production go up always does for me)

I am loving this stage!  Santi will be three months tomorrow.  He's been smiling up a storm!  He laughs and plays and is just so much fun to be around.  We went through some developmental leap fussiness last week but man is it worth it. 

 

This morning I woke up to find his eyes wide open and staring at me.  When I looked at him and said good morning, I was greeted with a huge smile!

Loved this pic!  He reminds me so much of my little Joe. 

 

Joe's hair is seriously bad, lol.  He's almost bald in back.  Has a faux-hawk on top, and one side is almost bald and the other is way too long and is always sticking out over his ear.
