Yesterday a friend of mine took maternity pics, it was HECTIC to say the least. Trying to get the boys in the same picture as us was utter chaos. But at the end of the day we some how managed to get some decent shots. We weren't going for the lets stand a smile and pose kind because that's just not our life anymore. I CANNOT wait to see how they turned out. Seriously CANNOT wait.
Yesterday I took the boys out to lunch and to get a car wash. There was a woman there with two kids (older than mine of course) and a 7 week old. Lunch was arriving and she was dealing with that and at the same time the baby got hungry. I started to panic slightly for her. But nope she swopped up the baby held his bottle with her chin and carried on helping the older kids. I began to wonder if breastfeeding would be just as easy, easier, or maybe harder. I didn't really "breastfeed" the boys. I pumped and fed them because Noah never really latched. I am having quite a bit of anxiety over what is "right for us this time." I say I want to go with breastfeeding, BUT bottles seem SO much easier with all we have going on. I can pass him off to friends and family to help and won't have to figure out how to try to breastfeed him discreetly in public places and then what happens a few months later when I go back to work? At the end of the day I DO want to give it my best effort, BUT I am not going to let myself feel like a failure if it doesn't work out. I know at the start it WILL be harder than bottles, but eventually it WILL be easier. So the plan is to try to attack it with every ounce I have.
Tomorrow is the big day, Gram's surgery please please please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
