Breastfeeding Everett

Well the update to Everett’s nursing “problems” is…

He has no nursing problems!  photo 271eresized_zpsf1abd580.jpg

Turns out the scale I used at home (which used to be super accurate to the ounce) was breaking when I weighed Everett. It was off by at least five ounces! Not only that but I hadn’t looked at my calendar and was off by a few days of when he’d last been weighed by the doctor. Everett had actually gained 11 ounces in 9 days!
Geez Louise! So I went to that lactation consultant and everything looked perfect. It was pretty much a complete waste of time and $50.

I have a lot of random pictures to share from the last four days but for now I’m just sharing a few from Tuesday and Wednesday. We ate popcorn and had candy canes while watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.  photo 005eresized_zps0ffb4ac2.jpg photo 008eresized_zps445ebb88.jpg photo 011eresized_zps7115cda8.jpg

Everett cried the whole time we were in the store.  photo 053eresized_zpsa6aeb599.jpg

I’d just nursed him in the car so I knew he wasn’t hungry… plus we only needed to be in the store for less than ten minutes!  photo 057bwresized_zpsaa651fbf.jpg

Ember loves pushing the cart.  photo 055ebwresized_zps06403306.jpg

The shoes she was wearing suck and always fall off her feet. Which is why she’s worn them maybe three times total since I bought them this summer.  photo 059eresized_zps7ece82dd.jpg

I stopped at the mailbox to check the mail and Ember asks from her carseat if she can open the mailbox. I figured, why not. And got her out and let her. She was thrilled!  photo 082eresized_zps9c9262d2.jpg photo 083eresized_zps4183beaf.jpg

At home I realized it’s been a while since I had a photo of me and Everett taken so I decided to go ahead and set up the camera with the remote.

I let Ember take the remote and she had a blast taking pictures.  photo 192eresized_zpsd29ccc15.jpg photo 193eresized_zpsdbadd02a.jpg photo 234eresized_zps327067da.jpg

  • I cannot believe how big Brooklyn and Sierra have gotten, time flies so quickly! You look absolutely amazing! Never commented when Everett was born, but glad you stuck with the name its a beautiful name, as are all your other kids names. Awww I can't tell from the pictures, but are those bandaids on Sierra's knees… did she fall poor girl ):

  • Glad to hear everything is working out with Everett feeding ! Love the pics with you and Ember seems like she has a very similar personality to Sierra? Ember's hair looks a lot darker then your other kids, or is it just from the lighting in the pictures? Your whole family is so photogenic! Enjoy the holidays
