Happy Birthday Cain!!

The first time I saw your smiling face. You were cozy in my tummy.

I can remember the day you were born.

Very Easy Labor.



Little did I know
Easy Labor

means not so easy childhood.
You have my attitude, and strong willed personality.



Wonder where you got your stubborness from??
You have grown up so fast.

Too fast.
I can't believe that today you are 5 years old.
I'm glad I have all these memories
 I will never forget these times in your life.



Look at you now.
You are a cute long haired boy.

I love you, Cain-er-nator!

Happy Birthday.

Help a Brother out

Anytime Camlin needs help Carson is always there
whether it be him standing and not being able to get down, getting to close to the gate because someone forgot to shut & lock it. Or if he has decided to be a carpet muncher for the day. He seems to find the smallest, little itty bitty whatever in the floor.
And it goes right in the mouth.
It's my fault.
I never had kids put anything in their mouths.
Until now.
Rubber Mulch, Toilet Paper,Hair (I know disgusting), paper, oh the other day I saw him going for a lady bug.

But I'm glad Carson is here to help watch after him, and relocate him.

Thats what brothers are for.

Atlanta Parent Breastfeeding Article

I think this is the most ridiculous article about breastfeeding I have ever read. Clearly this lady, Kimberley Kennedy has really no clue about nursing.

 Go to page 62 here and read the article- Mom to Mom  The Practical Side of Breastfeeding.
There are a few things I do agree with.
1-see a Lactation Consultant
2-ok maybe just 1

But then she goes on to state, before sex you should pump so your nipples don't leak. That should be interesting. "Hold on honey, I need to go pump these jugs before we do the pants off dance off (as my hubby calls it)" Oh don't forget to wear a sexy bra too, not your nursing bra....lol 

And this lady tells you how to put in a nursing pad, really it's not rocket science.

How do you know baby is getting enough milk? well someone that knows anything about breastfeeding would say that 5-6 wet diapers in 24 hours.

How often do they eat?
She says at first 3-4 hours  I say more like every 2 hours for newborns.

Now this is a good one-  When do I nurse if I have an appointment? I don't get it. Feed your baby before, during, after your appointment.

When do I start bottlefeeding? my answer- don't. BREASTFEED.

What do I wear? she suggest loose fitting clothes so you can nurse discreetly. And she suggest a car would be most ideal. - Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Nurse everywhere. Be proud you are giving your baby the best possible start in life.

I think my 13 year old niece could have wrote this article.

So Atlanta Parent- before you have someone write an article on a subject like breastfeeding might I suggest to you make sure they know a little something about it.

Where are the laws for nursing moms? here

What about the benefits to mom & baby?  didn't see very many   any at all.
Higher IQ's- Less Ear Infections-Better Immune Systems- more here & here

Growth spurts?

I probably could go on and on about this all night but I need to go nurse my 9 month old. Yes he still nurses at night. :)

I love http://www.kellymom.com/.


I found a blog I agree with and she wrote about this silly article too-
