Lanette’s Blog: And Then There Were Five

This blog was to be posted after I became a mom of three. So… seeing that’s probably the case, you can bet on the fact that I haven’t gotten much sleep but am happy as heck to not be pregnant anymore. It was so hard to wait for this little girl but I’m thrilled to even have gotten the chance. The boys only wanted a sister so I’m glad I could come through for them on that one, because I’m not sure I’ll be able to do much more in the next few weeks. So, I’m taking three months away from Magic 98 because I know I’ll never get this kind of time with her again. My only disappointment is that everyone who has a newborn isn’t able to take the quality time they need away from a job outside of the home in order to physically and emotionally heal as well as start this relationship off the right way with their new little one. Someday, maybe we’ll get there, but right now it’s really tough to wrap my head around the fact that we as a nation don’t seem to value this. But… I digress. In my little world, I hope Imogene and I get into a good groove for breast feeding and I pray I learn quickly what she’s trying to communicate with me through her sweet and her angry cries. I can’t wait to share pictures of her with you and of our new family of five. Talk to you in October!
