Twelve Pounds of Healing Love!
I just weighed Gwennie and she has reached and exceeded the 12 pound mark! Pretty amazing to me! This means in 2 months she has gained 4 pounds, that is 1/2 of her birth weight! Is that good? Well it makes me feel good, because its all on mama's milk. I am giving my baby the very VERY best and she is gaining weight wonderfully. What a lovely beautiful wonderful thing to do!
I want to write a whole article about the healing process I am going through, nursing. How wonderful it has been and how it has filled a hole that I felt like I had because of not being able to nurse Rhayn. I just haven't started or even figured out what I need to say. I love the idea of it. Everytime I put her to my breast it fills the hole a little more, its like doing yoga for my soul. I am able to open my soul to her a little more, because the void is being filled.
Just a few minutes ago as she was done eating, she leaned her head back with milk dribbling down her chins. It made my heart melt, its all I had needed.
