New Things

Dean turned seven weeks old yesterday. It really is incredible how fast time flies. That sounds so cliche but, man, is it true! So many things have happened recently, I haven't even tried to blog about it~ it was just all coming so fast. Mastering the Blogger app and/or mastering posting by email is a big goal for me in the near future. I don't want Instagram to be the only place that is up to date with my goings on.

To sum things up: we finished organizing the Magic cards, I dyed my hair, we had to put Rinoa down, I've read three books, we bought a new cat, Dean has learned to smile and is starting to coo, and the movie Austenland is my new obsession. (#betterthanmrdarcy)


We're also working on a new schedule to help us get back to feeling like we have a normal life. I had no idea how insanely hard running a store and having an infant would be. We just assumed I'd bounce back into the swing of things a few weeks after the baby was born and Dean would just live in a BabyBjorn hanging on my front. Turns out that's just not happening. Nursing a baby is our biggest hurdle and one that is fairly frustrating.

I wonder how other mama's manage to go back to work, and not get emotional and insanely engorged and leaky. The emotional part I'm getting the hang of, but how to other ladies find time to nurse or pump in the middle of the day? Especially if they work in retail?! I mean, I just don't see how it's possible without a ton of help. Lucky for me, I'm my own boss, and Aaron covers for me when I have the means to nurse or pump. Now I just need to figure out how to always have the means to (at least) pump during the day. Anyone have any tips? I would L O V E the advice!

Well it's 2:47am and while I wanted to write more, it's time for bed. *night night*

Nursing is the hardest. Especially when you go back to work. With Mason, I worked at a bank and I never had time to pump. I tried to make myself a schedule and every two hours, just stop and pump, but wasn't realistic since I had customers all day long. Every tiny break in customers, I would run pump, even if it was for 6 or 7 minutes and even if I had pumped half an hour earlier, because I might not get another break for 3 hours.
Hope you have a great day!!

I'm sorry to hear about your troubles, my condolences for your lovely kitty. You have so much craziness going on! I wish I had advice for you on baby feeding, but that is something I have yet to experience :). I wish you soo much luck, hope things get better/easier!! I just looked at your previous post and omg he's adorable.

Thanks Meg! I'm going to try to steal away and pump when I have a few minutes. Have a great Friday!

Hey Jess, thank you! Yeah things are crazy and I'm sure they're going to get crazier, but we'll get it all figured out. It's not too bad since I have the worlds cutest baby to come home to and snuggle with. X3
