All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

UPDATED: It’s 12:22 AM


And I’m not up with a crying baby.  No.  I’m up pumping.  I live in fear that if I don’t pump each night before bed, that the ladies will start to dry up and our breastfeeding days will come to an end.  Isn’t that weird?

So, as I was typing this (and pumping, mind you!), there was a knock at my door.  AT 12:30 AM!  I pump in my living room, facing the damned door, because, well, I pump late enough that no one will show up and see me.  Right?  Wrong.  It was strange.  So strange.  I called for B and he came and saw the gal on our stoop, turned off our security system, and answered the door.  She was seemingly drunk, and there was a man in an old, beat up car in our driveway waiting for her (he notes these things in case there’s trouble!).  CRAZY!  She was looking for people with a different last name than us, and people who don’t live in our neighborhood (I popped onto the assessor’s website to check out the name).  It left me feeling quite uneasy.  I didn’t sleep well.

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Well, it’s not really all that weird. I understand where you’re coming from, for sure, although I admit that I’d be inclined to skip the pumping. I am hoping that as Sofi’s sleep continues to improve my drop in nursing will trigger a return of my period. We shall see, I suppose… Hope you got a great night’s sleep after the pumping!

    • I still have not gotten my period either. Matthew is almost 10 months old, and no AF. If I was my younger sister, this would be a sign that I’m unexpectedly pregnant 😉 But I am not my younger sister, so I guess my AF is just not in a hurry to visit me.

  2. I still pump every single morning at 6am before she wakes up to help build up my freezer stash, and I HATE mornings…so no, not that weird. 🙂

    • Oh, the things we do to build up that stash! We have MONTHS worth of milk stored up but it’s like a competition to me – a competition with MYSELF! Crazy!
