It all turned out really good!

I'm so sorry that it's taken me so long to get back to blogging.  Our second daughter "A" was born August 9 and turned 5 months yesterday.  The week of her birth got a lot more scary after I blogged.  I ended up being airlifted two hours away to a hospital with a higher level NICU to deliver.  We don't know if three different doctors at three different practices were just wrong or if we experienced a true miracle but there ended up being no need for the NICU and we were both discharged the next day.  Breastfeeding challenges have plagued A and me but I am so happy that despite the issues A has never had a drop of formula.  After ended up an exclusive pumper that had to supplement with S, I am so grateful to God for my nursing relationship with A.  It is still hard though, at 5 months I still have to sit upright and use two hands to nurse her.  Therefore, getting two hands to type with is rare.  I'll post a link to our Christmas card shoot on my other blog.  I pray that all of you have a great end to the Christmas season!


P.S.  To those who asked for prayer.  I absolutely prayed for you during labor and I continue to pray for each of you when I'm at my wits end with breastfeeding.
