Micah is gaining weight! A month ago we rented a Medela baby scale from the local hospital to weigh Micah every day. Each morning he would get up, get his diaper changed and we would weigh him. I kept a journal of his weight, when and how much I was pumping and how much he was eating.
Yesterday was my fourth trip to the Georgia Department of Drivers Services office for a drivers test....and no it was not for me! Josiah is now a licensed driver and has already been sent on errands for mom.
Two years ago we vacationed in Florida as a family. We had a wonderful time swimming, fishing, playing and just relaxing. Not all of my children knew how to swim when we were at the beach, so we had very specific rules that were put in place for everyone's safety...and also so that mom did not have to jump in and save anyone.
On Saturday Andrew had a couple work projects to accomplish so I took the younger children to the park with Rachel, Josiah and Rebekah. We played and enjoyed the sunshine.
Micah is growing! This morning he made it back to his original birth weight. I am very thankful for the help of family, friends, our pediatrician, chiropractor and lactation consultant. He is now mostly nursing, though I am thankful to be able to pump and supplement as needed.
