She is smiling now! She has a really cute open-mouth, sideways smile! I finally feel like I am mentally connecting with her, like she is "here" with us. She is awake for longer periods now, but seems to get fussy when she needs to go to sleep and needs help (why is it hard for her to just fall asleep? or maybe it's staying asleep that is difficult...she mostly needs to be in a carrier so she can stay by me and still not get jostled as I move around. In a carrier, she will sleep for hours at a time!) And still a lot of baby acne...
My weight is about 126 when I eat all raw (cooked food adds a couple pounds, just from the actual weight of the food in my gut). I am using pH drops now, which I started to control thrush (I could tell I was borderline whenever I combined fats and sweets) and it's been effective! I can now eat fats and sweets with no symptoms. But also, apparently increasing your pH helps weight loss. So we'll see. (If you're wondering, I am using Alkavision plasma pH drops) And also I am finally beginning to get active again. I bought a jogging stroller and I have lots of videos also.
My sister visited last week. She has a 9-month old. Everywhere we went, we were wearing our babies - and mostly likely breastfeeding also. It was like we had our own little La Leche meeting going on in Sacrament meeting, plus at my in-laws house! Ha! It is a lot easier when you're not the only one, but then you're even more aware of how odd the two of you appear, sticking out like a sore thumb! (So yes I am nursing in all 3 meetings now! And I didn't even cover up with anything, just clothing!) It was fun to EC the babies together, althogh they are more serious about it than we are. I think you can afford to be more serious about it when you only have one child, as it requires a lot of attention (mostly just remembering to do it--I forget sometimes, so now we're trying a timer to remind me to offer the potty). [I have a photo of the 2 babies going potty together but having trouble uploading...stay tuned!]
