We went to the doctor this morning to weigh Gabi after not giving her any supplement since Monday. Unfortunately it did not go so well. She weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz. That means she lost an ounce and a half. That’s the opposite of what I wanted to happen. I wanted her to gain 3 or 4 ounces. So we are back to supplementing. I have to admit it is a little discouraging, but we will just keep pressing forward. Hopefully Gabi will eventually be able to get enough milk from nursing, because I don’t think I can keep this schedule up long-term.
In other areas, Rachel is always interesting and fun. Today, in honor of Pioneer Day, we walked and walked and walked and walked. She had her baby doll stroller. For some reason she thought it was better to walk in the grass. It made pushing her stroller more difficult, but she didn’t seem to mind. After we were a ways down the road I thought it would be best to go back home. She agreed when I told her she could have a freezer pop at home. Pretty soon she was tired of pushing the stroller, so I carried it, and about 10 seconds later she decided she was too tired to walk too. So I had Gabi in a baby carrier on my front, Rachel on my shoulders, and the baby doll stroller hooked over my arm. Fortunately I hadn’t brought Scout along. Don’t worry about him, though. After dinner, when Jeff was home, we all went for a walk again, this time with both girls in strollers, and with Scout too.
This picture is a couple of weeks old, but I thought I would share it anyway. Rachel uses the doggy door regularly to go both outside, and to come back inside.
