Pardon Me, Do You Have any Grey Poupon?

Emma Estimates:
  • Weight: 2020 grams or 4 pounds 7.3 ounces
  • Feedings: 38 cc's with THREE (possibly FOUR) bottle feedings


~ Look at the little angel in white!!! Just remember looks can be very deceiving.

~ During Emma' 5pm feeding, her refined pallette or taste buds made an appearance. Emma absolutely refused to take her bottle today at 5pm. She was definitely looking for her bottle and would start sucking on it immediately. But then she would shudder and spit whatever she had taken out. We tried for 20 minutes. Darren and I smelled the milk and it smelled different than previous bottles. We asked the nurse if there was a new additive. She replied no, but said this was the last of the batch mixed from earlier. The nurse then took a freshly squeezed/pumped milk, mixed and re-bottled. Emma took it rapidly in 9 minutes with a really big burp. So, apparently Miss Emma prefers fresh milk over milk that has sat in the fridge awhile. So either we can describe her as really really picky or a baby with refined tastebuds...hehe... I can just see Emma requesting Grey Poupon, certainly not just any plain mustard.
