We Have Nursing!!!

Update on Monica and her little one. I have witnessed three great long nursing sessions which I can not even put into words how happy that made me. Monica is engaged fully with her baby and even stomps the ground and snorts at me when I approach her. I completely understand that after having your hands into someone privates and then again getting my hands on her teats to assist in starting the little one - she has every right to be pissed off at me but if only she would see it from what good I did. I guess that is my role around here - step in when needed and then fade into the background when not needed...

So this smelly, tired Midwife hopes for a shower, some warm food and a hot cup of coffee.. All this before I need to start the morning chores and fiber business. No Rest for the Wicked - Yeah like I have been wicked - just cranky..
