Third Time's A Charm - Part 3

If you're just joining me now - read here and here first!

I only have one babe, and I'm still learning every. single. day.  Those first days weeks home were crazy.  No sleep, couldn't get my new little precious to latch, messy house, etc., etc., etc...  You know, the typical beginning to a new baby.  I could do without sleep, and the messy house.  But not being able to breastfeed my little babe?  I was losing my mind over that one.  He wouldn't latch, and once he latched he would fall fast asleep immediately.  It was like this from hour 1 of his life.  We struggled in the hospital, and unfortunately didn't get much help there either.  But I kept at it, pumped, and used my handy "shield" - very glamorous, huh?  Finally we got the hang of things, well not the falling asleep part. That was his m.o.  Get on the boob, nighty nighty.  It was fine with Momma, he was eating, he was happy, and he was all mine.  I miss those days.  We cuddled all day long.  He slept on my chest, we had quiet moments with sweet little smiles.  I was with him 24/7 and loved every single second of those months home with him.   As weeks turned to months, and months turned to years, he turned into the little man he is today.
So happy, so sweet, and so hilarious. 

From Day 1, to year 2(almost, he is officially 2 next week!), his life in review...
