Wow, quiet around here these days.... missing hopping online and all the excitement and anticipation of August.
So, what's new?
Jules is growing so fast. She is smiling and we can get her to giggle on occasion. She is a very serious baby who likes to watch the world around her. Definitely an observer.
She sleeps through the night occasionally. Not every night, but some. We are all getting more sleep. She is nursing great and I had to stop pumping every day because I was running out of room in the deep freeze. She loves to be in the sling and see everything that is happening with us. I have a deep attachment to her and I think it is because I have grown as a parent and as a person. i am much more AP with her then I was with the others and have formed some pretty strong opinions. I hope to exclusively breast feed her until she is a year old.
Loosing the weight ever so slowly. Trying now to make healthy choices and eat smart. Still hungry all the time. I guess it is the nursing.
She is such a gift. I have been thinking back to 1 year ago when I found out. Wow! I was shocked. now, I can't imagine life without.
I started my fourth semester of nursing school. 15 weeks til graduation. I am so psyched. Also, looks like I have a job lined up for afterwards. Our family life has become nice and stable. We are all just breathing that sigh of relief.
So, here is what is amazing. I still want another baby. That would make 4. I am so glad that we didn't choose to do anything permanent. We'll see. But the thought is there.
Hope all is well with all of you Sept ddc mamas!
drop in and say hi!
