Why am I doing this?

Birth Control for our Friends!


Dillon was laying on Curts chest the other night and yep, you guessed it, he threw up on him! Krista and Curt are getting enough baby time to last them for a while!

I got rid of the main stressor in my life -- nursing! I decided to stop on Sunday. Dillon was not doing good nursing. He wouldn't eat well, and threw a lot of it up (Yes, I was watching what I ate). I figured I tried for two months and I can't do it anymore. I was so stressed that I actually was not even producing much milk. Funny how your body always tells you what you need to do, but we hardly ever listen. So Dillon is a formula baby now and I am sure many think I am doing a bad thing. But, I am better mentally because I know he is eating and he seems happier too. I am really enjoying him now!! He has changed so much, I can't even believe it!!

I go back to work next week. Jason is going to be staying home with him on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I am excited about this! We will get to raise him ourselves!!

I am going to try and start running this week. I use that term loosely because it will probably be more like a run/walk. Oh well, gotta start some where!! I think I am going to try for the STL 1/2 marathon in April 2006. I would like to do the full, but I am not sure my knees will allow that. We will see.

Happy Monday!!

I actually really like baby spuik. It doesn't bother me at all. Besides, Dillon is way too cool to be upset at.

Alicia!!!
The 1/2 in April sounds like a plan -- may I join you? I just did a 1/2 in St. Charles and plan to do one in December in Memphis.
Love the posts about Dillon. I appreciate the effort and the guilt that goes into nursing and weaning respectively, I lasted 3 mos with the first and 6 weeks with the second. You do what you can and then you move on.
Good luck with the running!
Karen
