Marlowe update: 6 months old

Marlowe update: 6 months old

Six months was the magic age for Marlowe.  Things got much better as the month went by on all sides and she’s finally much happier!  She started out the month nursing constantly….like around the clock every 1.5-2 hours.  It was exhausting.  One day she woke […]

Marlowe update: 5 months old

Marlowe update: 5 months old

Marlowe is 5 months old!  This month was a little rough with her still.  The biggest change is that we got her on Zantac, and as much as she hates taking it, it seems to be helping.  She isn’t fussy all day long like she […]

Mommy Milk Scare

Mommy Milk Scare

Today for about 2 hours I thought I lost my milk supply.  I was kind of freaking out.  While I have always had enough, I don’t have excess, which is mostly on purpose.  With Jenson I had to pump because I went back to work, […]

Dear Zantac: Please make Zantac for babies

Dear Zantac: Please make Zantac for babies

Marlowe has been taking Zantac for about 2 weeks now and it seems to be helping.  I mean, she’s still not sleeping more than 2-3 hours at a time at night, or napping longer than 30-40 minutes in most cases, but she’s less fussy and […]

Magic Milk and a “mom of the year” moment

]About a month ago, I saw a facebook post where a mom showed 2 bottles of pumped breastmilk side by side, showing that the milk she pumped when her baby was sick was thicker and more yellow, like colostrum.  I’ve always thought it was cool […]

Marlowe update: Three months old

Marlowe update: Three months old

Marlowe is 3 months old now and she’s changing so much!  She started to interact with us (and objects) so much more this month and is really developing a personality. She’s still a clingy little thing – my velcro baby does not really want to […]

Marlowe update: Two months old

Marlowe update: Two months old

Marlowe’s 2nd month was a busy one.  We took weekend trips to visit both of our families, so she met a lot of people and spent some time in the car.  She did pretty well in the car, really only waking at the end of […]

Marlowe update: One month old

Marlowe update: One month old

Marlowe had a pretty busy first month of life, including lots of visitors, appointments, smiles, and sleeping.

Marlowe’s Newborn Photos

We had newborn photos of Marlowe taken at our house when she was 5 days old.  Pam, of Pieces of You Photography has all of our photos since we had Jenson – actually even my maternity pictures for him.  As usual, she nailed it with […]
