Lactation Consulting!

My stepmom's sister is a lactation consultant and so I asked her if she would give us her class instead of us taking the one at the hospital. She being the awesome Cindy she is agreed and today was the day we learned about BOOBS (hee hee I said boobs) and breastfeeding and different positions you can put the baby in and lots of other good information. A lot of information. An overwhelming amount of information. But it was so awesome to be able to have a family member give us all that information and take out her Sunday afternoon to talk to us about it. Hopefully Lucy is a good latcher on-er and we don't run into too many problems with breast feeding. I'm really hoping to breast feed for the first 6 months and then go from there.

Yesterday being Halloween we had some friends over and watched some scary movies and had a great time. These are friends we haven't seen since New Years Eve...seriously they live about 4 miles from us! Lots of screeching during Drag Me to Hell and then we watched Halloween, a classic and one of my favorite movies of all time.

Today is November 1st...and there is this whole NaBloPloMo deal. Given that this is the last month that we await for Lucy to arrive, we are going to give it a try. I know I know, you've gotten so used to us posting like once every two weeks that this will be quite a shock to your system. We hope it to be funny as in 3 weeks from tomorrow (assuming that she doesn't turn around) we'll have some little thing that we are responsible for. That's 21 days. 15 business days. Wait...what do you mean? Who the hell let us have kids? We aren't responsible or old enough. I mean seriously....let's talk about Halloween candy and how much I had this weekend. Hello SPREES! I love you!

So stay tuned, and well, let the countdown begin

Hey Leah, I know the feeling about having a kid. I mean, I'm an adult, but am I one of those real adults?

But seriously, I think you can Jason will do just fine. You'll be great parent.
