Ezra has gone through 3 growth spurts 2 of which threw the whole house off, to the point where his sleep patterns and my milk supply have been effected. I have been so tired especially since mike has gone back to work we have begun to add formula to my milk at night before bed to bulk it up so he sleeps longer, plus me going back to school 2 nights a week we were all over the map and now My milk supply is low and that causes crazy baby and more frequent feedings and more formula substituting which I am not a fan of, period! Yesterday was Mikes day off and Ezra refuses to sleep like he will miss out on the action or something but he seems to want that time with Mike, However it throws him off for a day or two, mix that with the lack of milk and me trying to re-implement our schedule... it is mayhem! My first line of action FENUGREEK stimulates milk supply exponentially! Which means more to feed and pump and store and more calories burned (because we know that is a huge must!) Also a nice little side effect it makes your sweat, urine and sometime poo smell like maple syrup same with Ezra he will also sport a little Ihop aroma as well! Totally down to smell sweet since the hormones from having the baby have made me get this funk smell going on, even straight out of the shower, not a joy of motherhood, needn't I say! Another down side to the sporadic breast feeding and sleep habits... A period, yes it has been exactly a year since I have had one, super disappointed but the silver lining... I will have a better idea of when Im pregnant again!
Haven't even begun to work out yet, Im way disappointed in myself but I have taken into consideration that I have a new baby and well until I get a jogger stroller I have to do it when Mike is home. I plan to borrow one from a friend but that will probably not happen for a couple more days anyway with thanksgiving and menses all taking place!

The How It Is Alert: A Means To An End:::
I have a Cyber-Stalker I am actually quite flattered that this individual has allowed me to invade her thoughts and ruin her relationships without me even lifting a finger, batting an eye, or caring about her, who she is or what she stands for. It's interesting to be given such authority in ones life without being asked or even involved. Fantasy emotions conjured up out of nothing, maybe jealousy, or an obvious personality disorder. But know this, everything I post be it on my blog or on Facebook anything public forum is all PUBLIC there is nothing that hasn't been heard, read, seen by others on my sites that I have posted because I have nothing to hide. I will NOT be censored or walk on eggshells to please people. I say it how it is and some people can't handle that, but it is in No way my problem or the problem of anyone with whom I have relationship, so stop bothering others by twisting and manipulating. If there is something you would like to say instead of stirring the pot and attempting to cause dissension in my happy little life feel free to email me and Ill call you Im willing to have a grown up conversation over the phone. Otherwise put on your big girl panties and quit sending my child things! You are spending money to warm the homeless. Im setting BOUNDARIES for myself and my family. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL AND ADHERE TO THEM. You are the only one who lets what I say cause you to show your true ugly colors, acting in this unhealthy hateful manner, its petty and predictable. I don't have time to Hate people who hate me because Im too busy loving people who love me! I am done with you and this topic as is the rest of the world according to you. Thank you and once again I pray you get out of life whatever it is you are searching for.
TO EVERYONE ELSE WHO ACTIVELY FOLLOWS AND SUPPORTS ME THANK YOU ALL THE WAY AROUND THE WORLD IT MAKES ME HAPPY TO KNOW MY WORDS FLOW IN TO YOUR HOMES!
