TWO WEEKS

Two weeks ago our family grew from 5 to 6. We didn't know it yet but our newest member was being born only a couple hundred miles away. Three days later we would get the call and make the drive out to meet him.


After years of praying and months of waiting. God has giving us an answer. Our family will never be the same.




Baby boy is such a good baby. It is really hard to remember what life was like before him. He is so loved. His siblings all adore him. The girls especially loves to help care for him. He fits right in.

I can't believe that he is already 2 weeks old. He is getting bigger every day. He doesn't cry much and he loves to nurse.
I love to smell him and watch him sleep. I take great pleasure nursing him to sleep and wearing him around.
I wish time could just freeze.......

The nursing is going great. I think that I am making at least 50% of his needs right now, the other 50 persent is supplemented at the breast using frozen breastmilk and a lactaid device. Before he camew I was pumping 3oz a day. I know I have more now.

He is getting bigger already. He has gains weight and is now back to birth weight plus more.
I love it that I am able to norish him at the breast just like the others.
