Hey Mommies! Man do I miss blogging but between my wedding and my future little sister in laws wedding coming up this week, it's been getting cray. Hopefully in May things will calm down some and I can put a bridal post together because let's face it, I have folders, snapshots and lots of pins of ideas for my perfect wedding. I also need some opinions because due to pinterest I have SO many different things I would like to do but might not be cohesive.

Anywho, although this little miss hasn't grown length wise in awhile, that doesn't mean she hasn't been doing a lot of growing! Two pounds heavier since last month I feel like she is also leaning out a little now that I can't get her to sit still. I'm guessing this is the part where mommies lose weight because they are constantly entertaining/ running around with their little ones!

Especially when it comes to breastfeeding, which I'm still doing exclusively yay!, she flails her arms and her feet try to dance on top of my head but can never make it. Speaking of, she also started loving to pinch and rub my other nipple while having the other, anyone else? Ya it was funny at first until her nails dig in and remind me how badly I need to cut them! Ah!
I also learned that when she's fussy and in desperate need of a nap, putting her directly on my boob is NOT, I repeat NOT the best solution because she will bite! She likes to do this followed by a smile and giggle. I swear one of these times I'm going to unintentionally push her aside because it hurts so bad I automatically flinch and pull her off yelling "No! GENTLE!". Oh the joys of breastfeeding but I wouldn't trade it for anything!
