I need to take time to say thank you, to all of you who commented on yesterday’s post, and on Instagram, and Twitter, and Facebook and email. To say I was blown away is an understatement. I was so overwhelmed with all of the sweet words of encouragement and love and support and all of the amazing tips and advice from so many awesome women. Each comment made me smile and think and yes, many of them made me emotional. I am so humbled and honored to be a part of such an incredible community of support which I know I can turn to whenever I need, and that is something that I will never take for granted. I am trying to reply to each and every one of you, but I wanted to say a general thank you here, just so you know I read your comment. You made my day.

And that’s a pretty great feeling.
Also. I’ve written down all of the great advice and plan on trying it all out! I will update, but for now here’s a mini update: Sam is up from 15 lb 9 oz to 16 lb! (Hey, we’ll take it). Last night we prepared some avocado mixed with formula for him and he ate it so well! Such an improvement! We’re still working on getting him to drink from a bottle again, since he has no interest in a sippy cup at all. Here’s hoping it works!
Again, thank you all. I don’t know what I did to deserve such lovely readers and friends, but I ain’t complaining. ;)
Have a great weekend! We’re going to the park today with Sam, for the first time! I’m pretty excited to push him in a baby swing and go down a slide with him. You know, the little things. This weekend we’re focusing on having total and complete FUN, because this week has been way too stressful and we all need to get out and just enjoy life. I see burgers and milkshakes, movies, snuggles, family walks, listening to Serial (OMG we just started it- I know, we’re behind- and I am hoooooked!) and most importantly, giving ourselves a
