3 Days Down…
Hey all. So, it’s been forever since I really blogged, and I’m so sorry about that! I’ve been caught up with fanlistings! I’ve been adopting a lot, getting approved for lots of new ones, and helping out others with theirs. I’m still really busy with that, plus taking care of Easton, but I really felt it was time to blog again.
Now that Easton is almost 3 months old (officially 3 months on the 10th) it’s about time to post pictures from our 1-month-old photo session with our good friend April. haha! As always, click on a picture to get the full-size view… (well, I scaled them down so they aren’t MEGAhuge) We didn’t do any type of photo session for EJ’s 2-month, but I’m hoping April and I can do something this month.
For those that don’t know, John (my husband) left Monday morning around 8AM down to Anchorage (6 hours from here) to go to some leadership training school. Even though he’s been an NCO (non-commissioned officer) for almost a year now, he still has to go to the school to be able to be promotable to E-6. (He’s E-5 now, which is his pay-grade for those that don’t know Army lingo ) So, for the first time I am all along with Easton. For 17 days. Holy crap. Not that I don’t love my baby boy, I do, I just haven’t learned patience yet and some days he stresses me out too much and I don’t know how to handle it. I feel like a horrible mother when he’s screaming and crying and I don’t know why until finally I figure out he’s hungry. But, I just fed him an hour and a half ago and he ate 6 oz!!! And of course he’s going through his 3-month growth spurt, so this thing will happen a few times I’m sure! Oh, and to top it all off, I just got my first postpartum period… first time since last June, actually, and these cramps are KILLER! I never had cramps this bad… I hardly ever had cramps at all (lucky, I know) and when I did a little Midol would make them go away. Right now, I have to take 2-4 Midol AND Ibuprofen to get any relief. I love being a woman. (not!)
It’s so much more fun (not that the first 2 months weren’t fun…) now that Easton smiles consciously… it’s SO CUTE! I love him! I will try to update a little more frequently, especially with pictures! :D
