Woah, how did an entire week fly by without a blog post? I am just tired. I get little chunks of sleep here and there. Some nights I fall asleep while sitting in the nursing chair holding Savanna. Some nights I fall flat on my face tripping over Sam in the dark. Some nights I tell myself that this frequent feeding phase is very short and one day I will miss it.
On Friday night my Street Photography class had a “field trip” to a professional full service print lab. I really wanted to go, but the downside was I had to leave Savanna at home for about 3 hours. Since she still wouldn’t take a bottle, she would go hungry while I’m gone. Oh I was so torn. At the end I decided to go on this field trip, and asked Cliff to try giving her formula in a cup while I was gone. If things went sideways, he could text me and I would rush home in 10 minutes.
While doing the tour at the print lab, I kept checking my phone and Cliff never texted me. When I got home at the end of the night, he proudly told me that Savanna drank formula from a cup and she was already asleep. She wouldn’t drink much, but enough to tie her over till I got home. I couldn’t believe with all the different bottles and nipples we tried, the cup is the answer! I was overjoyed with relief that if I had to be away for a few hours, Cliff can manage feeding Savanna with a cup.
Now I really need to go to bed because I have some shooting to do tomorrow. Here is one of my favorite pictures from this week. It looks like Cliff and Savanna are having a conversation, and Savanna isn’t quite agreeing with what daddy has to say. I can just imagine her arguing about her curfew or something.
