Peace of Mind is All I Want...: Finnegan-Bo-Binnegan

Peace of Mind is All I Want...

He's amazing. Seriously.

It's been a tough adjustment in some ways but now that we have six weeks of being a family of four things are getting easier. Some positives:

Nursing! It was as easy as can be this time. No latch issues at all and he's gaining weight like it's his job. At our midwife appt on Friday he weighed 13 lbs 11 oz. Incredible.

Sleeping! So far, so good. We're cosleeping andits going great. He's a snuggler and sleeps better smashed up against me.

Audrey! Loves her brother. She really does. It totally melts my heart and has been SO MUCH better than I was anticipating.

Some not so great things:

I have a touch of PPD. I don't feel like I'm doing a great job at anything right now. Sure, we're getting by but no one is hvjng 100% of their needs met. I have a referral to talk to a therapist and I'm really hoping to fit that into my schedule.

It's been a whirlwind since Finn was born. Michele and Auggie were here then Katy then we went to Pittsburgh for Christmas. We've been back for a little under two weeks now and things are starting to fall into place. Audrey is sleeping a bit better, we're eating healthier - both of those things seem to make a big difference in attitude around here. Hopefully things continue to improve.

Finn's baptism is on Sunday. My family (plus Grandma S and Louie) and Todd's family are going out so we're going to celebrate Audrey's second (sob!) birthday at the same time. We're expecting 25-30 ppl - we're blessed to have so many people that care about us and our children.

More soon!

Congratulations again! And Happy Birthday Audrey! Wow, lots of excitement in your world right now huh? Glad to hear that Finn is doing so well and that Audrey adores him.
I had PPD after my daughter and the meds they gave me did not help so I gave up on them. Before I left the hospital after my son was born the doctor gave me Prozaac and I have been on it ever since. Made a world of difference. I hope you can find something that helps you too!

SO glad that everyone is doing well!! I know when E was born, it was a huge adjustment and I had the feeling that I was only being 50% mom to my kids and less of a wife to M. It takes some time to get in the groove. So glad you're going to talk to someone....
