Dawson's first Thanksgiving...

I am so thankful this Thanksgiving.  I have my little miracle.  He was practically attacked by my family and I loved it.  My cousin, Carla, showed up at my car door and took him from me (which I loved) and then the bickering started between Carla and her sister Shelly.  I don't think we laughed so hard in a LONG time.  They were bickering about how long the other one was holding him.  And, then Aunt Debbie got in the mix and it was just comical.  I loved every minute of it.

The electricity went out in our little town and we didn't have any lights or phones (I grew up in the boonies) until 2 am the next morning (and they STILL don't have phone service).  However, we went to my Aunt Debbie's and their electricity came back on right before we ate lunch.  We ended up spending the night there since we didn't have electricity at our house. 

Dawson still is such a good baby.  He just doesn't cry.  Someone told me that my grandma said that we needed to let him cry to develop his lungs.  I guess that is an old wive's tale...cause when he change him...um, he has some lungs.

And, what is so sweet...when he is sleeping he softly cooes or hums every few seconds when he exhales...it is so sweet!  I love it.

I have been at mom's for a few days and he is getting spoiled again already.  Poor daddy had to work yesterday and today and he hasn't seen him since Thursday.  He is about to pitch a fit.  We are having the Brown's side of the family Thanksgiving today so I need to get ready.  (And, daddy will get to see him after work).  I think we are having family pictures done too so I need to actually get ready.

On a healing note...I have lost 20 lbs.  I am 13 lbs under my pre-pregnancy weight.  Yay, me.  I am still bleeding...I thought I was stopping but nope.  At about 3 this morning my ovaries started flaring up.  I haven't felt them in awhile...which worries me...surely I'm not ovulating this early...and surely I don't have cysts so quickly.  I will need to discuss the treatment of my endo at my six week check up.  Treatment would be birth control...but Matt and I would love more kids so why go on BC?  Defeats the whole purpose.  I don't know what the doc will suggest.  I just don't want the endo to come back in full force and cysts and all that crap...it is NOT fun.

My neck is a little better...I have cut down on my meds but my mornings and evenings the range of motion in my neck is pretty limited and I feel like I have whip lash.  I wish it was a normal neck again.

Ummm, what else, breast feeding is going good.  It did take about two weeks to get going.  I just drip milk...gross, I know.  AND, milk STINKS!  I am full right now and we have about 30 minutes before the next feeding and I hope I can make it before they burst!  We feed about every three hours...I have about two days worth of breast milk frozen already.  I guess I have become a milk cow.  Moooo, I say.

Pictures will come later.  Gotta go get myself ready and little bit too.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone...from someone who is so thankful my heart is overflowing.
