Breastfeeding Win

Do you remember how hard I struggled with supply and pain issues, etc with Phelan?  How I fought for 7 months?

This week marked 4 months breastfeeding Finn.  And as of this week we are exclusive.  No donor milk.  He hasn't had formula since the hospital.  And now no more donor milk.  It's all me, baby.  I am ecstatic and so proud of myself.

I'm still fighting for every drop, but the point is, that it's all me and I'm doing it!!!

Go body!  (And if said body wants to lose 30lbs while it's at it, I wouldn't argue)

Bedtime ABCs

Phelan is obsessed with the ABCs.  OBSESSED.  Bedtime can be very difficult.  Last night we were BRILLIANT and came up with Bedtime ABCs.  Works like a charm.  We go through them and he totally settles down.  So, for posterity (and so I can somehow turn them into a book), here they are!

A is for All of us
B is for Bed
C is for Cuddles
D is for Dreams
E is for Everyone sleeps
F is for Family
G is for Goodnight
H is for Hugs
I is for I love you
J is for Joy
K is for Kisses
L is for Love
M is for Moon
N is for Night (or Nap at naptime)
O is for Off with the lights
P is for Pillow
Q is for Quiet
R is for Rest
S is for Stars
T is for Tired
U is for Under the covers
V is for Very sleepy
W is for Wishes
X is for eXtra special
Y is for Yawns
Z is for Zzzzz's

He loves it.  We feel brilliant.

Happy bedtime!
