Motozo and I have been enjoying our weekly mom and baby meet ups so we decided to host a house party on Sat. Invited all our of mommy and baby friends and had a blast! It was pouring down rain so it must have been tough for everyone to come, but hopefully it was worth it for them. This photo doesn’t show everyone who came, but these munchkins are all around the same age. It was a real babies world.
Ty, for some reason, on Sunday was refusing to eat for the longest time, but was showing all the signs of being hungry. Fussy, crying, sucking on his thumb etc. It might have been gas, but I’m not sure. I was getting super engorged so I just gave up trying to nurse him and pumped a lot out. It turned out good though as Motozo was able to feed him (when he finally decided to eat) and I went for 10k run. Longest run I’ve went on in quite some time! Man I was dragging! Every time I go for a run I’m reminded at how much stamina I’ve lost. 😦 I feel like I need to get in shape more then ever now because we’ve booked our flights for a holiday in Hawaii for Dec 2nd. Me in a bikini? Better tone up a bit.
I came back from my run to find Ty completely passed out on the couch in a total food coma. It was interesting to see how much milk I could pump from one breast. I pumped about 200ml from my right side and 130ml was enough for Ty. He slept off and on for 3 hours. When he woke up every so often he just wanted to comfort suck and back to dream land he went. hmm…makes me consider pumping now because he went 4hrs until he was hungry again. I most likely won’t exclusively pump, but I might pump a little more often now as its real nice to get away for an hour or so and also not have to feed Ty every 2 hrs.
While Ty napped, Motozo and I relaxed on the sofa watching Yokohama Marathon 0n TV and eating the left over dessert from Sat’s party. The apple pie on the left is vegan. My German mama friend who I met at massage course is also vegetarian and made sure it was vegan for me. I haven’t been very vegan these days though. I’m not very strict when it comes to dessert. Im allowing myself chocolate etc. I don’t feel guilt about it in the least bit. But theres no way you’ll find me frying up an egg or drinking milk just as is.
Its so frustrating that Ty is back to his refusing to eat, but acting hungry. He shouts and makes all kinds of noises in the morning, but it takes so long for him to agree to nurse. I have to put my finger in his mouth and he starts vigorously sucking and then I quickly switch my nipple into his mouth and then he finally starts drinking. Does anyone have any experience with this. And no, its not that he isnt hungry, he’s hungry! We try a lot of things to maybe see if he’s just bored etc, but he still continues to be quite fussy until he finally nurses. I’m SOOO nervous about our flight to Hawaii. Ty isn’t easy to nurse indoors so imagining what he would be like on a 7hr flight makes me cringe. Oh, well….its only 7hrs and when we land Im sure I’ll think its all worth it. Fingers crossed that is.
Oh, and Im not looking forward to a jetlagged baby…..we’ll see we’ll see.
He is absolutely adorable though. How is it possible that he just keeps getting cuter and cuter? Any cuter and I won’t be able to handle it! 🙂
I love how he adoringly looks up at his dad during bath time.
I know this photo looks similar as the first one, but I liked both of them so I’m posting them both up.
Oh, I love this hat! Unfortunately, Ty isnt such a big fan of it haha. Too bad mister, Im forcing you to wear it! haha
