One Month

It's been one month since Baby Reese was born:) And it's been quite a month! Sorry you haven't heard much from me, my internet time has been severely limited. Taking care of three girls is hard work!

There aren't even any new pics for this post:( I will get to that this week.

Life has been full and crazy busy. It's been hard but good. Reese is such a sweet little baby. She is eating like a champ, almost 10 lbs now! She also sleeps really well. I am so grateful for that. She wakes up at 2 and 5 to eat at night. The only downside to her eating is that it takes her an hour to do it! She loves being held.

I have had some serious struggles again with nursing, so we are weaning and switching to a bottle this week. Poor little Reese is having a hard time adjusting, which breaks my heart. I hope to start making her formula soon and I am excited about that. It's super nutritious.

Jeremy is super busy at work and a little stressed with all he has on his plate. Then he comes home to an exhausted wife and three girls who want his attention. He has served us so much.

The girls are adjusting pretty well. Having some issues with obeying and respect which have kept us on our toes. But they sure do love their sister! They hold her every chance they get. Gracie wants to feed her her bottles too. They are so much help. I don't know what I would do without them.

So that's a little about us:) I have lots of posts in my head! Hopefully I will get them done soon.

Glad to hear the update! I miss seeing ya'll and wish I could see that baby!

You'll have to put on here how to make formula. Didn't know people did that! Not that I need it right now... :)

I read just the other day how to make formula... I too had no idea it could be done! Then I found it at this site, either using goat's or cow's milk base, or liver. Wow.

It looks like a lot of work, but probably a lot more affordable. :) Are you doing this??? Is it hard? I know from your gardening posts, you are not a shirker when it comes to working hard!!!! I'm sorry nursing wasn't working out, but the Lord will make sure your little girl gets what she needs!
