me and baby...


i noticed today that i don't have a lot of pics of me and noah - so here we are - LOL the boy ius ready to eat again! i look like i have angelina jolie's lips b/c i have a canker sore from the lack of sleep! we are doing great though. when he is feeding i am finding that i am rediscovering music from my past by playing some tunes on my ipod. it is nice and soothing for the both of us and i can keep track of his feeding based on song times. today we were listening to everything but the grl's album - walking wounded.
someone had posted on my blog about the traditional chinese afterbirth of "sitting the month" - where you basically don't leave your house for the month and just rest. my mom and i talked about this. i would LOVE to have done this but at last, i don't have the resources at this point to do so. but even so, we are provided for in ways we couldn't imagine.
when i quit my job to do MR full time, we really didn't think we would be having a baby so soon after i quit (it has been 1.5 years since i have quit my other job) but of course, you need to go with the flow of life. so here we are with our beautiful baby boy and how would i run this company with him being so small and needing me so much? well again, the good Lord works in funny ways i can't always see, we have found Noah someone to watch him - a good friend of ours who is about to become a mom herself and is taking a year off of teaching. we have known her for about 9 years now. and she is awesome with kiddos. and we have agreed that a couple of times a week, noah will be watched by her for a couple of hours. it is great b/c she lives only about a 5 min walk from my place and after she has her own kiddo, noah will also have a buddy to play with and we trust them totally and completely with our baby. and that is a lot to be thankful for!
PS i will post a ribbon sneak this weekend so make sure you are stalking this blog!

Caroline, you look FANTASTIC for being such a new mother! I hope I'm able to be as wise and healthy as you were when we start our family.

You're right, the good Lord always provides a way!
