Yan Yan – 11th month update

I was contemplating whether or not to post this update, since it'll be only two weeks away to the post on her first birthday (hopefully I won't be too late on that one!). But I'd just do it anyhow, albeit a short one. The milestone in the last month has to be her two front teeth – after weeks of discomfort, the two front teeth on her lower jaw finally erupted. And now, she's again having discomfort of waiting for the two upper front teeth to erupt. When she's not bothered by the discomfort of her teeth, she's a joyous, gibberish baby who loves to talk non-stop.

When she was younger, we all thought that she'll have a better temperament than her sister but looks like we're wrong - this feisty little lady would cry loudly and arch her back in tantrums when she doesn’t get her way.

She knows when we adults prepare to go out and will stretch her hands out to be carried, and once she's safe in the arms of the person heading out the door, will gleefully waves goodbye by moving her hand from side to side, with palm facing upwards :-)

She's still fully on breastmilk, but I think we may need to start supplementing with formula very very soon. I was away for 11 days recently and despite my efforts to pump consistently, my production had dropped drastically, so much so that I gave up pumping towards the last few days of my trip. Hopefully now that I'm back and nursing, my supply will be reestablished.
