My name is Andrea and I have been a member here for a very long time. I have made some terrific and inspirational friends here along the way as well. I have found my niche in helping a variety of people in a variety of situations, from pregnancy to nursing, a new healt
[More]hy recipe or even reptile care. Along the way, I have learned a great deal and use that knowledge to help others as well.
I enjoy helping nursing moms make it through the trials and tribulations associated with nursing. It is not always pleasant, but worth the struggle in the end. I am the Co-CL of the Breastfeeding forum and am happy to help answer any questions you may have relating to nursing, pregnancy, or parenting, day or night either via private message or email. I have accounts with Gmail and Yahoo using my screen name here.
I am a married stay-at-home mom of three young boys and have actually been a member here since June 2003 (search Still_AndiJ) when I came looking for help coping with my 4th miscarriage. I found a great source of support and a place I fit well. Over the years, I have had 2 babies as a member here and have been a part of some amazing stories filled with hope and triumph.

I am finally on the road to recovery after my recent brain surgery. My hope is to be able to ease back into the swing of things :-)
I am making a conscious effort to return despite a ridiculously chaotic schedule and a recent noggin-related diagnosis. Timing may be terrible, but until we know more about possible treatment, I might as well hang out.
So after months and months of build up, the San Francisco 3 Day is almost upon us. Peek and I have been so involved in preparing for this event, it hardly seems real it is...
My 3 boys are the reason I live, they are my greatest accomplishment in life. I love them as much as I have ever loved anyone (well, their daddy is pretty tops too) or anything.
My oldest is Jonathan Avery, he was born on December 7, 2001 in Spokane. He weighed in a 8 pounds 5 ounces and was 19 inches long. He is a loving boy, brilliant in all things academic and a powerhouse.
My middle boy is Tristan Asa, he was born on May 27, 2004 in Silverdale, WA. He weighed in at 8 pounds 7 ounces and 20.4 inches long. He is an active boy, so much so that even in utero he tied a true and tight knot in his cord and has not stopped moving since. He has a heart of gold, is a very active and busy little guy, and he a real thinker.
The baby is Clayton Jack and he was born on October 28, 2006 in Silverdale, WA. He weighed in at 8 pounds 14 ounces and was 20.3 inches long. He was big enough to cause me to break my tailbone during a drug-free birth...ouch! He is a lovable, charismatic, charming, and hilarious little guy,. He loves his momma very deeply and cannot seem to decide if he is a dog or a T-rex, greeting complete strangers with a roar or a pant, depending on his mood. He is honestly the cutest and most engaging baby I have ever known, which works well for now...but may not translate into much as an adult,lol.
Well hello there! And welcome back. I hope your doing well. I've missed you Andi, I truly have. Would love to get caught up when you have some time? Things are crazy here with me being back to work full time and everything else. I just don't get on FB....I always mean to, but just never do. How are you feeling? Thinking of you and your gorgeous family!! xoxo and more xoxo
Well, Aunt no longer in her house so the hoarding is managed. Cleaning out her house was a major activity last year, it yielded over 300 boxes and the storage costs alone are $700 / month. This year is the start of downsizing, recycling what can be, finding a way to remove the other stuff, separating out what the family would like to keep...
Swampy is doing ah...ah...AHCHOO!!!! okay *blows nose* but these a ACHOO!!!! allergies are killer right *blows nose* now, especially with *blows nose* all the rain.
Aunt has been in California more than a year and is healthy. Mom's gotta move, probably to a skilled nursing facility as she is bedridden and cannot feed herself.
