"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

What Rachel's Night looks like on Paper

Our respite worker continued the feeding log for the night.  Rachel ate 8 times. (between 9:30 pm and 7:30am.)  Most times it took 20 minutes and one feeding time was stretched out over 45 minutes.  (I have no doubts this is true - her feeds can sometimes be really difficult, often after a nap).  Her log doesn't tell me when Rachel slept.  But I can imagine, because we have done nights ourselves, that last night was her usual interruped kind of sleep.

your last two blogs do help me understand what life is like with your little one. if i think about what my day looked like today, and then try to add all that feeding time into it, i think i might feel stark, raving mad. may God give you the grace and flexibility you need to live every day interrupted. and we will pray that your kids can continue to grow and thrive in this environment too.
