So, breastfeeding can be very difficult for some mothers, and very easy for others. For me, it was simple and a no-brainer that I knew I was going to breastfeed him. I felt very discouraged though, when I was stuck with Mestitis (a small clog in the milk ducts that causes EXCRUCIATING pain when feeding your child and when coupled with a fever can lead to you drying up and no longer being able to breastfeed at all!) I didn't know if I could feed him while sick so we gave him formula for the first time. Let me be clear, I had it in my mind that I wouldn't ever feed him formula, so this was devistating to me. My mother encouraged me and helped me along the way though, and I was able to fight the issue and continue breastfeeding and didn't dry out. For that I'd like to say, "Thank You Mom." and remind you all that sometimes, we really do need to remember how much our mothers really do help us...even when we don't really notice.

So a friend of mine wants to loose weight, and I don't, but I do need to gather more stamina...I can barely handle walking around and holding baby for more than a few minutes at a time. So she bought the DVDs so that we could do Zumba at home. We'll see if it acutally sticks or not, but hey, here's trying right? Who knows, maybe this next school year I'll take some Phys Ed classes....Oh yeah! I'm enrolling in school this next semester so maybe in between classes I can write since I'll be away from Anthony.
(Anthony saying, You're gonna do WHAT mama?)

So I totally did a marathon with old high school friends starting on Monday with 1 & 2, Tuesday with 3 & 4 Wednsday with 5 & 6 and Thursday night at midnight we watched the double feature premier of parts one and two of book 7. Anthony tagged along as well, and the only thing that I can really complain about is that when he got hungry I totally set it up just fine to feed him, but he eats so loudly that I felt like all eyes were on me cause he just so happened to be eating while it got VERY quiet on screen....yeah I stepped out for a bit to finish feeding him before going back to my seat with a sleeping baby in my arms for all of the rest of part 1 and then the intermission and even through all of part 2. It was awesome!
On a different note, the picture to my side is of my little guy with a staged background. He's totally asleep but with his mouth open like that and his hand up he looks as though he's waving to a friend while swinging on the swing. We used a bath mat as the hill and grass, a bee that was on his mobile, a blanket for the tree leaves the tree trunk was a piece of material we hadn't sewn yet (my mom and I did this) we used a piece of long white ribbon for the swing and tucked it under the branch piece and used a pants hanger cardboard piece as the seat. Then a towel for the cloud and we were set to photograph. I adore these pictures and look forward to new ideas from you!
Watching the marathon inspired me to write, but I haven't had enough time to breathe let alone clean in my house so sadly I haven't written anything lately.

On a writing note, I've been hard at work trying to finish 2 chapters this month... I am afraid the way things are going I'll be way behind in my writing goals. Its been hard with writing and baby and having no internet. I'm currently at my parent's house stealing wifi to post to yall.
