On one hand it seems as the time has flown by and I can't believe he's one month old already. On the other hand, it feels like we've had him here forever.
In his first month he's experienced:
-A huge weight gain. He weighs 12 and a half pounds already.
-Eating non stop 24/7. I still don't make enough milk for him so he gets a bottle after every time I nurse. It takes a lot to keep this big boy fed.
-A receding hairline. He used to have a thick fluffy head of hair. Now his hair scheme is that of an old man.
-Thrush. His mommy has it too. Super fun.
-His blessing from his daddy (pics to come).
-His brother and sisters smothering him with lovies all day long. This boy is getting no shortage of attention I tell you.
To try and make more milk, I'm taking this herb called Fenugreek. It smells and tastes just like maple syrup and consequently, I do too. I read that this is a side effect and it's driving me nuts. I smell like breakfast. I don't know how much longer I can keep up this nursing/bottle feeding situation. It's a lot of work. It's got to be one or the other, you know? I'll keep trying for a bit but I have to draw the line somewhere!
Anyway, here are some pics of the little chunk:
