The Nursing Nightmare

So having Jonah home has been a lot easier than Annalise. 
It helps that I know what I am doing now, 
and he is a very easy going baby.

That being said....
nursing has really been hard with him. 

To start off he was tongue tied, so we had his tongue clipped, 
but he still has had a hard time nursing. 
I have had to supplement from the first few days he was home, and I pump whenever I can, 
and I still can't make enough  milk because he gets too frustrated if the milk is not coming out as quickly as Niagara Falls. 

So now I am counting down the days until he starts on solid foods, 
and hoping I can keep up this
 pumping, feeding, supplementing schedule.

Rollin'


Yes, that is right. Jonah is rolling over already....I don't remember when Annalise started rolling, but it definitely was not early. He rolled over this morning for the first time, and I thought it was just a fluke, so I tried it again...and again, ....and again.

He is so stinkin cute (sorry, I am the mom, I must say such things):

Sleeping peacefully after working hard this morning...
Jonah's personality is showing more and more everyday, I love it!
And I had to share this picture....he has the scrawniest little legs I have every seen, but so cute.

I Love To See The Temple

I had to share this story about Annalise ......

Kevin and I went to the temple this week, we asked our neighbors to watch the kids and I told Annalise that she was going to go over and play with Luke while we were at the temple. She was so sad that she could not come with us. Every week when we go to church she gets so excited to see the temple,(which is right next to our chapel) and she tells us about the angel Moroni on top, it is very cute. We could not take her with us, but she ended up having fun over at our neighbors, and we were blessed enough to have two well behaved children while we were gone.

So today Kevin and I had our temple recommend interviews and we each took our turn to go in and talk to the bishop. I went in first, and then Kevin took his turn. When Kevin came out Annalise popped up out of her chair and walked right into the Bishops office and said "Okay, it's my turn." Luckily the bishop was very kind and let her sit and talk with him about Nursery and church activities.  It really warmed my heart to see her desire the things that I believe are so important, and it was adorable at the same time.

It is days like today that I remember that I have wonderful children and a wonderful husband.
