Small update

I'm still recovering from my c-section and not able to sit in this chair for very long but I wanted to drop by and give a quick update.

I will have to give you the whole birth story another time (James did a good job but he missed a few details). Right now we're home and doing great. I feel pretty good and my incision is healing well. James is just as cute as a button and he is such a good baby. Feeding is still presenting a few challenges but nothing we won't overcome.

Rod and my mom have been doing everything and allowing me to just relax, heal, and cuddle with my little sweetie.

I know you're dying to see more pictures. I will try to get some uploaded for you tomorrow. Thanks for all of your support throughout this pregnancy! I hope you will continue to follow along as we explore the newborn stage. :)

Glad youre good and home :) Stay ahead on your pain pills and don't feel like a wussy taking them! I'm sure you're tired as can be BF-ing every hour, we can wait for pictures. :) Big, big hugs for yall.

If you are breastfeeding and you have any questions you can call or email me any time. Gabriel was the hardest one out of all four to start latching on correctly.

I am glad to hear your recovering quickly. I can't wait to see more pictures and hear the whole story.

sleep when ever you can, That goes for Rod too! lol

Would you like to borrow my recliner for a while? I'd pop it in my van and bring it over in a heartbeat! I bought it and moved it here myself so I know I could do it!

Brooke said...

Thanks everyone!

Kimmy, I'm not afraid to take my pills...I know what it feels like to let them lapse and I don't want to do that again!

Cherie, he has a tongue tie which is making latching almost impossible. We've decided to keep trying but I am ok with exclusively pumping. I figure whatever works for us is what's best...who cares what the lactation consultant says!

Cat, I'm trying to get some uploaded...keep checking back!

Angi, the cats are a little hesitant, but they're ok.

Cathy, thank you so much for the offer. I was thinking I would need something like that but all of a sudden today I am able to move better. I can get in and out of bed and off the couch all by myself now! I even took a shower with only a little assistance today. Our house is so small that I'm afraid a recliner would take up the whole livingroom. Thanks for offering, though.
