Almost every day I am completely overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness to our Great Savior who has allowed me not only give birth to another child...which seemed impossible with my back health...but that He has allowed me to be truly a Mom this time around. I can get up with my little one and take him in my arms and take care of all of his needs...something that I was not able to do last time, but dearly longed for. Honestly I am just so humbled and astonished at how well my back is doing. You can continue to pray that God would give me good health in this area as it is still a little sensitive.

James has been a great eater too! This is also a special blessing this time around. Leona struggled so much with eating and James is actually over eating :) I've had to cut him back to 30-40 min. feeds because he gets too full and won't feed for 4-5 hours. A day after my milk came in he did struggle with latching, but after some help from my lactation consultant, we were able to get him moving in the right direction. I was able to attend a breastfeeding clinic with other moms on Tuesday. What a blessing! We are also awaiting some special pacifiers from Amazon that should help his sleep at night.
