Brinley Summary: 39 Weeks Old


This is a summary for Brinley’s 39th week; she was 38 weeks old.

Exploring the outdoors


My sister is getting married in a month and a half in Las Vegas. We decided to just fly down and leave our kids with my in-laws. We will be gone overnight…well…this is fine and dandy until you remember the Brinley who will now take a bottle from me (yea) but not anyone else (boo). 

So I started giving her a bottle every night at her last feeding to get her very used to it. Initially, I did it after her last nursing, but she soon decided she liked that a lot. It also happened to be my week of my period, and if you remember my supply drops OR she doesn’t like something it does to my milk, so she doesn’t love nursing. She went to just wanting a bottle before bed and no nursing. She still is nursing three times a day and then a fourth bottle of 4-6 ounces. I am pumping a “dreamfeed.” I use that milk the next day in her food or in the bottle.


Our new food adventure this week was frozen peas. I just give her a few on her tray still frozen. She loves them! 


Sleeping is the same and going great.


She is a really good walrus crawler! Sometimes she gets on her tip-toes and holds a plank like that (seriously…that is hard). Sometimes she pulls herself along on her tip-toes. Crazy kid. I really hope this isn’t a sign that she is a “do things the hard way” type. I guess it is making her super strong, though. 

She LOVES to crawl around and explore. She is so happy just crawling.


She also loves the outdoors. She doesn’t mind grass at all. All of our other babies (or for sure Brayden and Kaitlyn…I can’t remember McKenna for sure) were a bit freaked out by grass initially. Brinley doesn’t mind at all.

It is nice she loves the outdoors since she gets to go to about four soccer games a week :). The weather has been much nicer for that.
