One full month. How on Gods green earth is this even possible? Everyone warned me that it would be a hard transition, and don’t get me wrong, it’s far from easy…. but no one warned that time will go so fast that you blink and weeks have passed.
I am feeling well rested, well, mostly! Homeboy is not that bad of a sleeper, and I keep praising God for these little gifts He’s given me- like sleep. And a baby who doesn’t scream bloody murder in the car… or a baby who I can set down for a while and he isn’t hysterical. Gifts. Gods great gifts.
These three are also Gods greatest gifts too! It’s taken the full month but these two big Bro bro’s are finally becoming more smitten over their little brother. Especially since he’s starting to coo and attempting to smile!
Cameron’s Likes: being held. Sleeping. Gas drops (haha), snuggling mom’s boobs… I’d say nursing but that’s been a struggle. But he is nursing, thank you Jesus. He’s really enjoyed his baths so far as wells
Cameron’s dislikes: Gas pains. Waking up alone. He’s not a fan of the brothers forcing his eye lids open or shoving their fingers in his face/mouth… but mama can only catch so much shenanigans!
Nicknames: Homeboy, Cam, bro bro.
Weight: 11+(ish) lbs.
This has been the BEST recovery between all three. Even with its obstacles (nursing issues, mastitis – awful! – thrush.. more nursing issues), my mind feels clear. My patience isn’t completely shot (thank you Lord), things are going so so well. I’m getting roughly 6-8 hours of sleep (pretty interrupted but not horribly!) and I feel like we settled into a routine quite well and quickly! I did have any repairs post delivery so my physical recovery has been great. I did lose a lot of blood so I’ve been working on iron intake, and my recent labs showed major improvement!
We are beyond thrilled to have 3 boys and my love for each is so unique and special!
