9 months!

Here is baby rys 9 month blog photo (late as usual), this photo was so difficult to take, little mr will not lay down for nothing! He wants to crawl and climb! This month was a really tough one for ryder and me...ok more me. We stopped breastfeeding near the end of Ryders 9 months, we had a really really really good run of breastfeeding but stopping is horrible for me, besides the fact that since ive stopped my hormones have seemed all out of whack it was more mainly that i felt so sad knowing were done, i tried to hang on for as long as I could but with zero milk supply (i tried herbs but didn't want to go on the prescription pills) and he would get so mad and frustrated, also he was constantly biting me then..laughing! what a naughty boy, I know all good things come to an end, I was just sad this was over for Ryder and me, it was beautiful while it lasted, either way I have to come to terms with the fact that our baby is almost one! It is so heartbreaking to me how fast this past year has went, Ryder honestly is everything to our family, he is the baby to the kids, andrew and me! 

 My first time breastfeeding ry, my c section felt so fast and right away in recovery my little warm bundle fed for the first time, I was relieved how easy it was for him. Breastfeeding is hard, exhausting, and requires so much dedication and work (sounds like a lot of parent right;)?), I even managed to get mastitis when ryder was only two weeks old, accompanied by extreme fever, shakes, high blood pressure so i needed antibiotics for it, but I am glad it is something special I have shared with all my babies, Lincoln I pumped for 7 months straight for my little preemie, Autumn we breastfed for 5 and Ryder 9, I think bottle feeding is amazing as well, whatever works for mama I am a big advocate for happy mama (wife), happy life, but oh boy did this ever work for me and Ry. love love love this little guy of mine.
