It's been awhile since I've posted but things have been a little busy obviously :) Monkey is growing quickly and smiles all the time. I'm still pumping since he still won't nurse and the formula doesn't set well with him. So basically my life revolves around the pump and then playing and feeding Monkey. He does try to nurse bless his heart but he just can't quite get the hang of it. Pumping has it's ups and downs. I have good days and bad days with my supply. Luckily he can tolerate a bottle or two of formula a day which helps me feel less stressed about my supply.
Motherhood is...interesting for lack of a better word. I love Monkey and taking care of him. What I don't love is having to go back to work before he's old enough to sleep through the night. I worry about balancing work and being a mom. Not sure how all that is going to work but I'll let you know when I start in a few days. I'm incredibly sad about it because I would rather be with Monkey all day. I'm afraid I'll be thinking about him too much to focus on teaching. Luckily, he's going to be with my mom and I'll be right up the street. Thank goodness Heavenly Father blessed me with a job closer to home. If I were teaching at my other school, I really think it would have been even harder. Here I can run home at lunch to see him if I want to. I'll post again when I start back to school and hopefully the transition isn't as hard as I'm expecting.
