Some Quick Family / Henry Updates

>> Monday, July 04, 2011

Last weekend, Pharmie and I traveled "home" with Henry for the first time. We both grew up about 2 hours south of the Cities. Henry made the trip down just fine! While we were there, Henry got to meet his Great-Grandparents. Here's a nice "4 generations" photo of all of the "oldest Stenzel men:"

My Grandpa is the oldest of 4, my Dad is the oldest of 3,
I'm the oldest of 2, and Henry's the oldest of 1!

On the way back to the Cities, Henry got fussy and needed to eat. So I pulled off at a rest-stop near Northfield, Pharmie "got lunch ready," and I took a photo of Henry enjoying a snack:

And speaking of home, our hometown paper ("The Wells Mirror") was "Stenzel-heavy" last week. It had Henry's birth announcement inside....

.... and my Grandpa and his brothers were featured on the back page in recognition of how long they've all been married!

Those are my Grandparents on the far left

Last week, Henry had his second "real" bath since his belly button fell off. His belly is getting nicely round:

And finally, Friday night after a killer brick workout with 3 friends (which I'll be posting about on tomorrow), Henry and I relaxed in bed:

Yes... his chins are coming along quite nicely.... ;)

Probably a good thing pharmie has to let parts recover because breastfeeding can use a huge amount of energy all on its own. It gets less taxing once the bub can have other foods too.

Beautiful pictures! Lovely nursing photo! I wish I had more of those of myself and my kids!

I'm going to have to disagree with Old She Dragon about the nursing...while breastfeeding can take a lot of doesn't stop you from being able to do what you want to do (and having other foods to feed your baby when they are older doesn't make it "easier"). Birthing can take a lot out of some people--and can take a while to recover. Definitely the sleepless nights can be taxing--but I wouldn't blame breastfeeding as being the "taxing" part of motherhood (or parenthood in general). Personally, I found (after the first 2 months--when it's nurse-like-crazy-cause-the-baby-is-a-newborn time) that breastfeeding made my mama job EASIER!

I love that you post both personal/family entries AND training/athletic entries! :D
