It took about three full weeks for my pelvis to be able to support my weight, but it did finally happen. Not a whole lot else happened that was not within the normal realm of my life after that. I was able to solely breastfeed until we started Zekey on solid foods at four months. Like Braden, he weaned himself. He just simply became disinterested in staying on the boob for any length of time, so at 6 mos, right before Christmas, he was completely weaned. Truth be told, I was just fine with that.
Truly the amount of growth and trust that came out of being blessed with this little boy is just amazing! I can't imagine having been sane after all that I went through with this pregnancy if it had been my first. Don't you love how God orders events in our lives and totally gives us the preparation and equips us with exactly what we need when need it? What an awesome God we have!!! I love that God stretched Sam and I so much. We are stronger and more united than ever! To top it all off He has blessed us with two wonderful little souls to take care of for Him. Wow! That’s Zeker’s birth story. I hope you enjoyed the saga....;) Oh yeah, by the way he came out weighing 8 lbs 14.5 oz (a whole pound more than we thought!) and 19 1/2" long. He was also super bruised from coming out so fast!
