Literally two days after Adelaide was born I filed a claim with insurance for my breast pump. They’re now totally free through Obamacare, so I of course wanted to take advantage. After six weeks my pump finally came in and then I sat and stared at it for another two weeks. All the cords and little pieces made it seem so intimidating to me.
I finally decided to go for it and it ended up not being so difficult after all. Then I was nervous that Adelaide wouldn’t take the bottle since she was nearly eight weeks old, but she took it like a pro.
It was so special to see Jon feed Adelaide for the first time. It’s been such a bonding experience for me to get to breast feed her, and it meant so much that Jon got to experience feeding her as well. There’s really no greater feeling than watching your husband holding his daughter. Talk about melting your heart.
Feeling pretty lucky over here. Wishing all the mamas and mamas to be out there a Happy Mother’s Day. Happy Friday everyone!
