six weeks

I cannot believe that Acorn is 6 weeks old today.
Here is a pic I plan to send to friends and family (email send) for the holidays, but I post it here, early....

By the way, the ticker is weird, and has the wrong count, I am not sure why.
She is smiling and making lovely cooing noises to go along with her goat grunts and elephant snorts. She is a noisy baby, except in deep sleep.
I am still struggling with issues, the yeast is slowly leaving, and my n.ips are again cracked. I am sincerely tired of it, it has gotten to the point that I can't remember not being in pain. Awful. But, Acorn is growing well, she gained 6 ounces in 5 days!


  1. Oh my goodness!! She is one beautiful baby! Enjoy the holiday season with your little acorn :)

  2. She is so adorable. What a wonderful Christmas present!

  3. she is gorgeous Poppy! congrats congrats!
    and wishing you a full recovery from your physical difficulties right now.

  4. Look at that cutie pie! Can't wait to smooch her!

  5. So sorry for the breast issues. Your little Acorn is Gorgeous and the picture of her in the stocking, just precious. Thank you and Merry Christmas to The Seeds!

  6. What a doll! She is soooo cute! I love the pic - what a stocking stuffer!

    I'm sorry nursing/yeast/nipples continue to be such a problem. It sucks to have the joy taken out of breastfeeding. I truly hope it clears up soon.

  7. Poppy- Acorn is beautiful! I love the stocking idea.
    So sorry to hear about your nips. Ouch ouch ouch. You are probably already doing this, but it was a real life saver for me--Lansinoh was a life saver--in the purple tube. I gobbed it on after every feeding. It was the only thing that gave my nipples any relief. Good luck! Thanks for posting the beautiful photo of Acorn!! (Can't believe already 6 weeks old!?!!)

  8. I too adore the goat grunts and elephant snorts along with the horse neighs.

    You Acorn looks absolutely adorable, the best of Christmas gifts there are.

  9. I had major b.reast issues nursing my twins and a lactation lady gave me the BEST mixture of stuff to put on my nipples. I bought all kinds of stuff but in desperation one night I sent my DH to CVS and I swear it helped more than anything else. It is completely safe for the baby too.
    I am not pushing it on you-as I am sure you have been getting lots of advice, but if you want the recipe feel free to e-mail me at My twins are now 6 months old-and still nursing, but it was SO hard the first 3 months. Hang in there!
    Merry Christmas!
