Go see the most amazing and beautiful sight, the new father I mentioned last week finally gets to hold and cuddle his tiny daughter for the first time.
Kangaroo care is the most amazing thing, it makes so much sense how much skin to skin contact helps premature or sick babies. As soon as you hold the baby you can look at their computer and see all of their stats change to normal. They just settle, its a very powerful thing to witness. I've been praying for this family to be able to get to the point where they'd be able to do it.
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
