I am writing from the better side of our major breastfeeding challenge. Things appear to finally be smoothing out and Cora and I are hopefully hitting our stride. It has been an exhausting few days while we strove to find our rhythm. I have been humbled by the love and help offered by our friends. A few times this week friends dropped everything to rush over and help us. Amazing, and if I wasn't deliriously tired I would find the words to express how much I have appreciated this love.

Scott's mom is here visiting which has been a huge help. I'm trying not to image what it's going to be like in a few days when she heads home. The weather has been gorgeous which is such a relief and we've managed a few short walks with Cora bundled up in her sling. She is gaining weight rapidly and her face changes every day.

  1. Hooray for breastfeeding getting easier and Cora gaining weight! Whew! I knew you two could do it, and I know you knew it too, but that doesn't necessarily make it any easier, eh? I'm so proud of both of you. I hope you're sleeping as I type this. Man, I'm just in awe of all the challenges of being a new mom, how anyone gets through it with her sanity...and I'm only witnessing it from the outside! :) Love you CC!
