Upin My Supply. HELP! & Project 31!


So my little one is 5 month old, and I am currently supplementing! The reason I am is because I had surgery and couldn't keep up with nursing and pumping and the pain medications lowered me drastically :( I have a HUGE desire to nurse full time at least until Noah is one. Any ideas on increasing supply??

What I have tried:
Nursing all day
Mothers Milk Tea

Project 31:

Day 4. Style 31. Post a pic of you in your favorite outfit.

Mustard yellow strapless top
Navy blue shorts
gold sandals

Day 3. Who is someone you know who inspires beauty?

Day 3. Who is someone you know who inspires beauty?

My sweet husband. Judah.

Judah was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 15 years old. I didn't know him then, but he is here today completely cured! Because of almost losing him life, he has a higher understanding for love I feel. Judah is THE most soft spoken, kindest, sweetest, caring, loving, humble, talented person I have ever come into contact with. Judah is the type of person that he just doesn't have a mean word to say, and I love him for that. He inspires beauty in me. God willing one day I can be like him in some way. He is the most beautiful person I know. I love you Judah!

First Food. :)

Need I say more.. :)

What makes you uniquely you?

What makes you uniquely you?

I do some strange things.. I am the one girl in the room hanging off the edge of the chair having a conversation and the people around me have seen it so often that the fact that I'm halfway on the floor isn't even spoken of. :)
I don't like peanuts.
I am obsessed with the willow tree statues and if one is given to me regarding family or a baby I am instant waterworks. :)
I love lindor balls.
I have a dance. It involves keeping my body as stiff as possible and shaking it at the same time!! :)

Prodject 31.

Okay, I will take the challenge!

What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty is life. I was thinking about the day my baby was born and my hair in 1,000 places. The washcloth wetting my hair, my tears, my laughter watching the office, my husband by my side. The last push that brought out the sweetest thing and the most BEAUTIFUL thing I have ever seen. Beauty is life, life given from God. True beauty.

4 Months.

Time flies by when you have a child! I can not believe he is four months old!! He has changed so much and can do some "tricks" Is what I call them, but YES I realize he is NOT a dog. haha He does a little pharaoh, pharaoh dance that is adorable. (Well I guess I sing and move him hands. He also can sit in the corner of the couch and if you say "come here" he will fall to you. AND the BEST one is if I ask him to "hold his toes" when I am changing him diaper he does it! It's so cute, I need to get a picture of that!

Over the past month we were pretty busy. We went to the beach for a few days, and Noah got to see the ocean for the first time. Although, this picture describes his beach experience..

My brother and his beautiful expecting wife came into town to meet Noah for the first time, I love them so much!

Merry Christmas! And Happy New Year!!

Becca and Noah :)
