Praise God!

Well, it would seem that we are officially free from the Supplemental Nursing System!  It has been well over 48 hours since I needed to use it.  Zaden has been nursing very well, waking up enough to suck efficiently, and we are settling into a new normal that does not involve so much time and preparation with each feeding.  Praise the Lord!  I am so thankful for this answer to prayer, and I confess that it comes a little sooner than I was expecting...I was prepared (finally) to continue using the SNS and pumping for another couple of weeks.  It's amazing to me how he just turned the corner all of a sudden, but I shouldn't be surprised.  Our God is good like that!  I am in awe of how far we have come in less than 4 weeks.  It's hard to believe that it was only 26 days ago that I stood in the doctor's office crying when I realized my baby had lost so much weight in one week's time.

What a blessing it has been to have so many people praying for us and encouraging me in this journey.  I know it means a lot to Ted also to know that I have this kind of support, both near and far, since he cannot be here physically to help. 

I look forward to seeing Zaden continue to grow and discovering more of his sweet personality.  I'm also excited that we can finally settle into a new normal--knowing our schedule will change every so often as Zaden's needs change--but finally we can be more free to go out and about and enjoy life outside the walls of this house!
