Magical Milk Pic-o-the-Week



"I loved nursing my oldest son, but realized way too late I should have taken a picture of it. After losing four babies I thought I would never again have the joy of nursing a child. We found out last June we were expecting a baby again. We were not sure what God had planned for us, but were thrilled when we found out the baby was a girl. We experienced many complications including Intrauterine Growth Restriction. She wasn't getting the nutrients she needed from the placenta. The doctors prepared us for the worse. We responded with prayer, as did thousands around the world for us. On January 29th, our daughter, Abigail was born at 35 weeks. She weighed 3 pounds and 5 ounces. She amazed doctors and nurses by breathing on her own. Ten hours after her birth, against all of the odds, I went to the NICU and nursed Abby. She is an amazing little miracle and I'm taking thousands of pictures, including this one of her first time breastfeeding."

Our Girlie was 3 lbs 9 oz at birth and we weren't there. Now, I get to see how teeny weenie she was.

I saw that pick and thought, "What a teensy baby! Or, does it just look like it because I am nursing a two year old? Oh, good, it's a preemie. I haven't lost all perspective after all." Lol. Love these posts.
