4 months check up

Aug 30, 2013 - 0 comments

baby Lena has been growing like a weed.  she has very chunky legs.  She got 2 shots in her leg today at the doc's.  She didn't like it one bit.  she doesn't mind the oral vaccine.  
she is now weighting in at 15 lbs.  height is 24.75 inches.  67% and 70%.  Her head circumference is on the smaller size.  I keep saying that they should measure around her cheeks.  Then they'd get a much higher number!
I go back to work on Tuesday.  i'm a bit apprehsive about it but she will be staying with my parents 3 days a week and a nearby home daycare the other two.  I just don't know how i'm going to work full time and do all the other stuff I normally do too.
I've spread out my pumping to only twice a day.  when I did that, my supply dropped off a bunch.  I was getting about 27 oz per day.  now i'm at 15 to 17 and I don't feel full when it comes time to pump.  i'm hope it just lessens within the next couple weeks and then i'll be done.  I'm happy to have gotten Lena b-milk for 4 months and we've frozen a bunch so she might get it for another 3-4 months.  only 3 bottles a day since we are still giving her formula at night.
