Today Ezra is 4 weeks old! He has grown immensely in the last month and is changing and acting more grown up every day…it’s astonishing!
It took him about 2 1/2 weeks, but he finally figured out how to nurse! Let me say that was a very rough process! I came very close to giving up on so many occasions, but I’m so glad that I didn’t! Now he is breastfeeding exclusively which makes life easier on both of us.
As far as my recovery, each day gets better and better. The anemia still leaves me feeling very tired, on top of normal new-mom exhaustion. I try to give myself one thing to do every day…like today it was going to Walmart for a few things. Between that and taking care of the baby, that’s pretty much all I did today, and I had to take a 2 hour nap afterward. But, that’s more than I could do two weeks ago! I’ve also already lost 45 pounds (out of 80 total gained) which makes me THRILLED and makes me feel a lot healthier!
I cannot thank you all enough for your prayers and support over the last month. I went through some very dark times those first few weeks. I really didn’t see how life would ever get back to normal…I was so overwhelmed with everything. But God has been faithful, and He didn’t let the rivers overflow me or the fire consume me, and He has always been with me (Isaiah 43:2).
