Survived the weekend!
Well, I survived the weekend without Dan, thanks to our awesome family and friends. Thank you to all of you who helped out. I appreciate the help and food and love more than you will ever know. Dan has Mondays and Tuesdays off, so I am happy happy happy to have him at home with us today.
Starting today we are putting Sammy on a diet of sorts. His constant pigging out is starting to take its toll on all of us. So now we are feeding him every three hours during the day, no more and no less than that. Hopefully this will get us on a semi-schedule eventually.
I made the decision to stop nursing AND pumping altogether. It was a really tough and tearful decision, but it has already made me a happier mama. The stress that went along with trying sooo hard and being in so much constant pain was not worth it for me. I have more important things to focus my energy on right now. So now Sam is officially a formula-fed baby! And I am slowly making peace with my decision.
Elijah is doing well. He got to spend a lot of time with cousins and other family members and friends this weekend and he absolutely loved that! This kid loves people so much. Every time our doorbell rings, he gets crazy and giddy.
Thanks for checking in! Time to go snuggle with my littlest man for a bit while Dan and Elijah are at the park.
