Life At the Looney Farm?

Thank you for your concern. I've had a couple of good days in a row and even did really well with taking Rhys to the dr for a check up with Nadia, on my own, yesterday. Rhys is a super sleeper. When Nadia's day was messed up, that was it, no sleeping, not even if I nursed her when I KNEW she was sleeping, until bed. She just would be up! Whereas Rhys is like, nurse me mama, put me down with my bink and don't bother me for at least 4 hours! Man, this kid is so nice to me! That is so nice, because then I can get at least a little recharge in the afternoon.

I do think the meds are kicking in now. And I've discovered that running and a shower in the morning helps a lot. I'm only running every other day because I haven't run for over a year. But on the off days I'll do toning. It's like I just need to do something for myself for 30 minutes. Right now that's exercise and a shower. Hey, what can I say, if mama doesn't take care of herself, she can't take care of anyone else. I can look back in retrospect and see the difference in Nadia's babyhood and Rhys'. I still have guilt over that. It's hard to let it go. Man.

My boy is 9lbs 10oz at his 1 months check up. He gained 2 inches (which explains why all the newborn clothing doesn't fit). He was 6lbs 14oz at birth. So he's eating well. I'll tell ya with all that new pudginess on him it makes him so snugglie. I love cuddling him! And at night when he's got a soft sleeper on, he's like a teddy bear. He just cuddles in and nurses away. He also 'holds' onto me, as if to say, "my mama, my milk". I love it.

This week is revival, so that means I am putting the kids to bed everynight this week through wednesday. That's a lot for me, but I guess it gives me opportunity to perfect it. Two down, two nights to go. Hubby is beat. I know it. We are planning on some sort of vacation around Christmas, he has to use up his vacation time or he'll loose it. So I'm looking forward to that. He needs time to rest. I take that as my calling, prodding him to rest. Like I can talk.

Thanks for your prayers, continue to send them.

Ah... you make me miss my chubby, little nursling! Rhys is now about Jessie's size at birth. :)

It's good to read you're feeling better. You're still in my prayers daily.
