I find my self in Laveen. AZ. What's that you say? Where the heck is Laveen? Until my niece bought a house here, I hadn't heard of it either. It's a bedroom community SW of Phoenix that used to be a farming community, and still is in some places. Not a mile from her house is a big dairy with lots of cows packed into a small area surrounded by tract homes. And lordy, lordy, lordy does it stink when you drive by-no way should that many cows be in one place at one time. I grew up in the country with a huge cow pasture within site of my house and it was nothing like that.
But, I digress. I'm here in Laveen hanging out with my newest great-nephew! Every new mama needs a helper for a while and I'm so happy to be able to act as her postpartum doula/lactation consultant. Nate is entering into his third week of life on this planet and I think he's fitting right in. Her certainly has the eating and pooping down.
He's a keeper, for sure.
