Donating Milk

I'm going to donate milk.  Since Rosa Leigh is eating about 5 to 6 ounces while I'm gone, then eating a TON when I'm home, and I'm pumping more than she can eat, I want to donate milk.

I still have colostrum left!!!  I don't want this to go to waste, so I've contacted a milk bank in CA and I've got between 200-300 ounces to donate.  That will still leave me with a ton of milk stored for Rosa Leigh in case she starts to eat more.

But since she is 4.5 months, and at 6 months she'll be eating some solids during the day and BFing at night...I'm still going to be pumping during the day the same amount, she's going to be eating even less....I'm going to continue to donate.

Since the milk goes to neo-natal babies, and really, I don't have to put out any extra effort, I'm gonna do it....anyone with me?  ;-)

what a difference two months can make

- haven't posted in a while

I know I haven't posted in a while, but damnd if my little angel doesn't keep me busy.  I've got some new pictures of her (she's now 4 months old), and I'll have to post them.  I've started (ok, I'm 4 rows in...that's a start) the baby ugg boots.  I found the pattern on http://www.ravelry.com.  I can't wait to make them, I just need to find the time.  Between working, baby, son, hubby, sleep, eating, and random otherness, I don't have much free time.

Also since the little one is teething, she alternately wants to be held, put down, picked up, put down, to chew on Mommie, put down......

OMG seriously?!?

All I have to say is, WOW, really swine flu?

Ok, you're not going to get it from eating pig...if you think you can get it that way, I hope Darwin (Charles, not my husband) comes up and slaps you silly. 

On a different note, my daughter is DEFINATELY teething.  She's kinda bottle feeding, she's getting huge.  She'll be 4 months on Sunday, and last time I weighed her she was 13lb 7oz, 24 inches long...that was two weeks ago.  Since she's been in a hell of a growth spurt for the past week (or 10) she's got to have gained at least a pound.
