I was so sad and remember the last night I nursed Fisher. I just knew in my heart that this part of our relationship was over and it hurt deep. She wasn’t interested anymore even though she was only 10 months old. I worked during that time and despite all the pumping every 3-4 hours at work and through the night and mother’s milk tea and all the tricks my supply was waining and she wanted what was plentiful and easy I’m sure. . 🌻 So when I was pregnant with Shepherd I prayed to make it a year. Little did I know that this child would not be interested in anything but nursing. He wouldn’t take a pacifier. He wouldn’t take a bottle. He would just scream (not cry) until I nursed him and he wanted to nursed all the time. When he was hungry of course but also when he was sad. When he was bored. When he got hurt. When he was cold. After a bath. Before dinner. After dinner. Just because. And here we are now, almost a year and a half in and he’s still nursing on. And on. And on. And have I mentioned on and on through the night?! . 🌻 It’s funny how God chose to answer my prayer. Not with an easy road but a nursing journey that has been hard fought for every day because I have wanted to quit so many times. And not quit because it was the right next step for us but out of frustration and exhaustion and sheer selfishness. This nursing journey has made me so aware of my dependence on Christ in a thousand ways I wouldn’t have known if it was easy. So here we are nursing on for now and into the unforeseeable future. Nursing through all the moments, the enjoyable (because don’t get me wrong there are plenty) and the hard, and I’m learning to be thankful in all of them. His steadfastness and patience never ceases towards me.... needy, impatient, selfish me and it’s just that I remember when I don’t think I can do this anymore. It’s His endurance I recall and it’s His endurance that become mine, a gift given at just the right time.
Honestly so obsessed with Corrine + Tanner. We went to take golden hour portraits at the Gorge, and honestly they blew me away and the scenery just amazed me. 💛 *sorry for posting so late* just finished an 8 hour wedding and about to head out for another 4 hour drive to Bellingham to attend my besties wedding tomorrow 🙌🏼
We are moving to Wilsonville! (It’s a Portland suburb for you none Oregonians) The opportunity to move closer to our church and family is a huge answer to prayer. Although sometimes I have to remind myself of that fact in all the craziness. It’s going to be a busy next couple weeks, but God is SO good. We are very thankful to have plenty of time to get settled in a new place before Charlotte arrives. Double tap if the Lord has answered a prayer for you this month, big or small! 🙌🏻
