Today


This little woman has been my life lately. Taking all of my energy, thoughts, prayers, & everything else that has to do with me! I can't even describe how having a baby can be one of the most amazing things, and one of the most difficult things all at the same time. Unfortunately, breastfeeding has not really improved much. I'm still really struggling & crying a lot! BUT, I'm not giving up. She's gonna get it eventually. But keep those prayers coming friends!! I know they help :)
Ellie has changed a lot already. Adam and I are SO in love with her. We are the typical "stare-at-your-baby's-every-move" parents. So proud. AND NOT TO MENTION- I have lost 20 lbs already!!! Yay!!!! :) Amidst the tough things, that is something that I am SO grateful for! I'll gladly accept that gift from above!
Today I was having the "woe-is-me's". Feeling so sorry for myself about having little SUCK-cess with breastfeeding. I felt like I was at my end. Then I read this blog, and it reminded me how truly blessed I am. Thank the Lord for transparent people who put life back into perspective. I'm not demeaning my hardships, but it's easier to see the BAD in your situation over the GOOD.
Til next time...

hey Krystle! I left you a message on Facebook... if you want to try the breastfeeding pillow, I'd be happy to bring it by anytime! And I just want to encourage you... it does get better! For Madeleine and I, it took about 3-4 weeks before it started to get easier. I know that doesn't help much now, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Anyway, let me know if you want the pillow....

I had a ton of nights crying about breastfeeding. Don't worry it'll either get a bunch easier or you can give her formula. I ended up having to give Addi formula and she and I were much happier! I beat myself up about it but learned that its not the end of the world. GOOD LUCK! She is adorable!!!
