I find myself posting later at night rather than earlier in the morning. Oh how my schedule has changed....lol It is almost 11pm and I am about to hit the hay, but I know that if I dont take this quiet moment to share then it won't happen at all.
Nursing is going well. It is so much harder than anyone or any book can possibly prepare you for. I breastfed with Roman, but I must admit it never felt like a success. He just wouldn't latch properly, and because of it he got a lot of air, which turned to tummy aches. I pushed through, but never felt 100% confident in my ability. With Boaz I decided to go easier on myself. I figured if it didn't work out then it didn't work out. However, the Lord was good to us and he is a true latcher. I can't say it was a wonderful latching experience.....*big grin* but I could sure tell the difference between Roman and Boaz.
So now I am thinking ahead to Monday. Den will be heading back to work full time and I will be left to care for my newborn, toddler, and the rest of the crew independently. The house needs an overhaul, our schoolwork is behind, and I am going to need to stop every two hours to nurse. I know that this is the Lord's quiet reminder to stop and enjoy the little one that will grow up way too fast though. I am thankful for the quiet moments that Boaz and I share during these mommy and baby time, nevertheless the show must go on as well.
I will be reconfiguring our schedule and all that we have to do. With River gone we will be needing to redo our chore list to round out the important ones and make sure they are even-steven. We have had to make sure that Abram pulls his weight a little more too. This has been good for him, although he has been a little surprised at his extra work load...lol.
So I will keep you all informed as to how all the new transitions go in the next week, so stay tuned......
