20 weeks today...

This morning Victoria weighs 5.22kgs - she's doing nicely. I thought it would be a good thing to try and put a picture up for this special day.
Well, that is another new skill learnt.
Victoria remains as popular as ever with her brothers and sisters - this morning Thomas has got her after Samuel dressed her and helped with the weighing.
This morning's attempt at breastfeeding involved fewer tears (!!) but was no more successful. I am determined, however, not to be discouraged - I recently spoke to a lady whose (ds) daughter at 22 months is the size of a 6-month-old and has been on 'infatrini' most of her life. Victoria's Dr. threatened 'a change in her milk' to this stuff and with the help of the dietician we were able to resist and continue with the good stuff. This other little girl has developed such a taste for sugar that her mother has trouble trying to persuade her to eat things without sugar in AND she isn't even growing well.
So, even if Victoria won't breastfeed, I shall continue to pump as long as the Lord supplies the milk for her, and rejoice.
She is rather beautiful isn't she?!!! I shall post more pics now I know how to do it!
