I have been hearing about the tornado that touched down in Oklahoma since Monday when it happened. I have not been able to bring myself to turn on the t.v. to see updates and such. It wasn’t until this morning that I saw some pictures and videos online. My heart aches. Nine children have been found dead. Six children in a pool of water, 3 buried alive in the ruins. No words, except this. I woke up at 7 a.m. this morning to a sweet baby’s cry. Today, and every day the Lord grants me, I will hold him close and cherish every moment. I will never again take my every day, sometimes mundane, moments with him for granted. I will even thank the Lord for all the hard days, because even those days are a precious gift never to be taken for granted. My prayers are with all the mommas who have lost their precious babies, not just in Oklahoma, but around the world. My prayers are with the people who no longer have anything but their wits and the clothes on their back due to devastation. My prayer is that through this, the Lord will draw many to Himself.
Are there any of you out there who are nursing and exercising? i.e. running, hardcore workout? How do you keep from losing your supply?
Can’t get enough of this sweet baby’s giggles :)
How long did you all swaddle your babies for? I read somewhere that you should try to start transitioning them out of the swaddle around 3-4 months. We never really have swaddled Uzziah because he absolutely hated it, but now that he is a little older I have actually found that it helps him sleep better during his naps. How old were your babies when you made this change???
