HE IS HERE!!!!!!



Hi bloggers, So sorry it has been so long. The end of my pregnancy was tough and hard. I made it 39 weeks and 2 days.....Last Thursday morning at 7:55am by C-Section I gave birth to my 7th child. Jeremiah Thomas, 6 lbs 13 oz, 19 1/2 inches long perfect little angel. He is an absolute joy, nothing bothers him, just goes with the flow and is sucking up all the attention he is getting from everyone.
I am proud to announce that I started breastfeeding him 1 hour after birth and it went smooth as pie and have continued with it and mostly cause he is so awesome at it have decided to breast feed exclusively through age 1. I cannot believe how amazing breastfeeding is for me. I regret not doing it with all my children. To have rely on me and me only for his food is humbling. The bonding that him and I share is priceless, it brings tears to my eyes. I have jumped in with both feet and triumphed. From the day I got home I hid nothing from my children. I don't want them to have any of the problems I had with it. I was amazed at how awesome they all thought it was, ( With the exception of my oldest son, Who cannot look at it, But thinks it is great I am doing it lol). The younger boys think it is so cool that I can feed the baby, They say just like the lions they saw on TV hahaha. I love innocence!!! Anyway Just wanted to let you all know what has been going on. And I look forward with some of my new energy to blog much much more often. Thanks to all my friends Michelle

Congratulations! He is beautiful.

I exclusively breastfed my youngest for a full year and don't regret it at all. We didn't have to fuss with the baby food stage and he was thriving on the milk. I'm so glad that you are having a great breastfeeding experience!
