[ mood | blah ]

well since i have been busy with my son and working, i haven't had much time to update. i wanted to update and ask a few questions. before i got pregnant with my son, i was pregnant for the first time and i had a miscarriage and then a few months later, i got pregnant with my son. well 3 days ago, i had my second miscarriage (i didn't even know i was pregnant this time) and i am scared that if we actually try to have another child somewhere down the line that i will just keep having miscarriage after miscarriage. i don't want to go through that, that's the hardest thing i have ever had to go through and i've been through it twice already. is it me?? am i just not healthy or capable of having more than one child?? i know these are questions that i should be asking a doctor but i want to know if anyone else has gone through the same thing so they could give me advice or hope that this may not happen again!! maybe i just needed to vent and i thought this was a good place to do it cause i got alot of good advice all the other times i asked for it!! well thanks for listening and feel free to give me any advice you can!! thanks!!

First Birthday and an exciting update: [08 Aug 2005|11:16am]

x-posted everywhere (I can't help it. I'm excited)

Ok... so it's been a few since I've written. It was a hectic couple of weeks and with all of us getting sick, making trips to the ER for squished hands and all, it's taken me a bit to get things together. Right now all is well. Shelby is really walking and this weekend started very clear purposeful signing. She'd point at my water and sign "drink." She's point at food or snacks and sign "eat" or "more to eat." Dan was changing her and she started signing "change," all without any prompting. She also learned how to drink out of a straw on Saturday (I forgot her sippy cup and she wanted some ice water... the kid LOVES ice water.)

Her birthday went really well. We went to my parents on Fripp Island in South Carolina and were met by in-laws, friends, aunts and uncles, and a gaggle of cousins. In all the chaos she managed to remain relatively sane. We played on the beach, played more at the pool and generally a great time was had by all. The grown ups even managed a couple of nights on the beach drinking beer, telling stories, kicking up phosphorus and generally acting goofy. My parents will never be the same. I will post pictures in my journal today.

Last thing, after we got back Shelby got a call for an audition for a commercial that we went to on Friday. They wanted kids who were just walking. She did pretty well. Today I got the call that they did book her for the shoot. It's a Cingular Wireless commercial and they are shooting on Thursday! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! Who knows if they use her footage, that would truly be icing. I just am tickled about the whole thing! Besides, she gets paid for the shoot and I guess more if they use it. I just keep adding to her college fund. :)

Today's the Day [27 Jul 2005|02:50pm]

Raimi is one. We are having her pictures taken at Sears tonight, and I wanted to take her out for a special dinner before. I was thinking of Chuck E. Cheese or Jungle Bungle, but I decided on Denny's, because this girl loves pancakes more than anything else in the world. (Well, excluding my boobs.) Is that really lame? We probably won't give her any of her presents until her party Sunday, but I don't think she's really going to mind so much, seeing as she can't quite read a calendar yet.

Quickie update [25 Jul 2005|04:53pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

I had Chaeli Alexis July 13th at 9:54pm. (2 weeks early!) She weighed 5lbs 14 oz and was 18 3/4 inches long.
I ended up in labor and didn't really realize that I was in it at the time. I was so sure that they were going to send me home AGAIN. But my hubby hauled me into the car and when we got there, sure enough I was havin' a baby!
THe labor lasted about 5 hours. THey broke my water and ended up starting me on pitocin because there was meconium in her water. That was right after they gave me the epidural. Which... Made me SUCHHHHHH a happy camper!
Around 9:20pm, I began pushing. When she was born, it was just the most amazing thing in my life. Hubby cut the cord, she was on my belly and I was bawling. She immediately breastfed.
She is just sooo tiny, and sooo pretty. She's very good. Hardly cries except when I take too long to get her food. (that and the bit of gas she has). I'm just so happy shes finally here!!!!

UPDATE ON LANEY BEAR [30 Jun 2005|11:41am]

I can't believe my Laney Bear is going to be ONE on SATURDAY! It blows me away! I took Tues & Wed off and I already have Thurs & Fri off (my saturday and sunday) to get ready for his birthday and party for this weekend. Of course his birthday theme is cowboys/farm and red, white and blue and we'll be having ribs and burgers. I think we got a little carried away on the invites...we invited 17 kids (as well as their parents), 9 of them though are his cousins. The kids are ranging in 6 months to 13 years lol...so it was hard to figure out what to do. I've decided to play one game and then in everyone's goodie bag their age appropriate toys for them for something to do, but like most kids I'm sure they'll disregard them and just have fun playing with eachother or on our big trampoline and the babies will enjoy the balloons and chasing the kitty. It'll be so cute with all his little buddies here. Most of my friends have boys and all our sons seem to be blonde hair, blue eyes and close in age, its pretty funny.

Lane is just blowing me away how smart he is and how much he is growing and learning. Tooth #9 is working its way through and he recently learned to laugh. Its just too funny. It like a cry but he smiles...and he learned to run which he runs from one side of the living room to the other laughing. And dance! Boy can he bounce lol. Today he learned to say "boo" while playing peek-a-boo. And he rolls his arms while doing "roll it and roll it" during patty cake. And he loves to cuddle his stuffed animals, its the cuttest :)

I've been going on full speed making Lane a scrapbook of his first year for his first birthday, I'm so proud of it. Its nice for those special pictures to finally have a real (safe) home :)

Well I hope everyone has a safe and happy Fourth of July!! TAKE CARE!!

sweet child of mine

Pictures! [27 Jun 2005|10:48pm]

[ mood | chipper ]

Still playing with my new digital camera. Just wanting to share...

3 more hereCollapse ) I am so excited about this camera. They really do save a lot of time, money and energy since I don't have to get pictures developed anymore. I should have gotten one last year. But then again if I did I'm sure Estella would have more photo albums than the 2 she already has...

It was an all-outdoor kind of weekend... [20 Jun 2005|01:23pm]

X Posted

My little girl is growing up so fast! She has two bottom teeth and one on the top left. The top right is starting to poke through now and will probably break through this week. This weekend we got her a baby pool from Walmart (we do go swimming with her but she likes this too) and her own lawnchair. I didn't think she was ready for the chair but I got it anyway because it was on clearance at Target. I was wrong though, she LOVES it!

Here's my favorite little goofballCollapse )

is it possible for someone who already is/was depressed (before pregnancy) to get ppd ?

how can you tell if you have ppd and not just regular depression?
if you had regular depression before pregnancy, then how can you tell if you have ppd now?

birthday plans [02 Jun 2005|01:45pm]

[ mood | frustrated ]

I have a plan for Estella's birthday party. I have a theme, daisys. I know exactly what I want for decorations. I want to make a carrot cake, I have the recipie for the cake and the frosting. My mom now wants me to get her an ice cream cake. Are you kidding me? She said that we'll get her one from Carvel, the ones with the chocolate ice cream and crunchies on the bottom. I'm allergic to chocolate, I really don't want Estella trying it any time soon. She's had tastes of ice cream, but nothing much. I want her to be able to play with her cake and have a grand old time. Not stuff it in her mouth and get brain freeze. I don't think that I'm being unreasonable. I hope that she doesn't come up with anymore "helpful" ideas for the get together.

MOD POST [30 May 2005|02:35pm]

So I've heard in other places that many people would like this comunity to become more active. I've seen many posts here in the past few days, which is a start. However, no one is commenting on any of the posts that are being made. That is part of being active in the community.</b
