How are those sweet babies doing?

Ava is doing great!  She got her two month shots a couple of weeks ago.  :)  She was 10 pounds exactly!  She almost doubled her birth weight in two months, I am THRILLED, and so was my Pedi.  She looks awesome, and still breastfeeding like a champ.

I am feeling a little depressed these days.  I get so wrapped up in the changes happening in her right now, I can barely remember what she looked like when I brought her home.  :(  I am so sad about that.  I look at her pictures from the hospital and want to cry.  I think I really want to be pregnant again.

I am so glad Ava is doing well!! =)
Jeremiah will be 3 months old this friday the 11th. I can't believe it!! He is officially 16 pounds, as of last week, and 25 inches long! All on mama's milk still and he nurses like a champ as well now. He sleeps through the night great and my body has finally adjusted to that. For about a week, I would wake up soaked! By 9pm...Jeremiah is out like a night, no matter where he is. It's a wonderful thing for me!! =)
I was just looking at pictures of him when he was a couple of days old and he has changed so much! When I hold him I always ask him where my little baby went! =(  lol. But as he gets older he becomes so aware of things and I think he is already attached to me and is such a mama's boy! When someone else is holding him he may whimper and then when he sees me and knows that I haven't gone anywhere, he smiles and is fine! It's too sweet. It's wonderful to be needed and wanted like that! =)

I can't wait to be pregnant again...but I also just want to enjoy my lil guy right now. Maybe in a couple of years we'll try again...unless God has other plans!
I also got my period again for the 2nd time! I just had it 3 weeks ago...so I was shocked when it showed up yesterday. UGH! And this time it's awful...so heavy and some clots....I know TMI...but I am just not sure why I got it again so soon. Oh well.
Well I think I rambled enough...haha. It's always nice to catch up and see how our little ones are changing! <3

WOW, he is big boy!  Ava is only was only 21" long at her last visit, of course she was only 17" long at birth.  :)  We are sooo lucky to have such healthy babies.  I love my little Ava more than all the blades of grass God ever created!  :)

My period has been doing some really crazy things lately.  I just had mine last week and it was not clotty at all, it was more on the really dark side, almost black!  YUCKK!!!  My midwife told me it would probably be six months before I got another period, but nope I've had one every month since my lil girl came home.  I would not change my decision to breastfeed over anything in the world.  It's a little difficult to be "good" sometimes  :)  I miss my tall glass of wine that I used to enduldge in every night while I cooked BEFORE I became pregnant.  It helped to inspire my cooking.  :)

Faith Is doing great, shes now 4 months old and is a bit over 15 lbs, 25 inchs long. Iam sorry i have not been on much.. My sisters baby past away from SIDS On july 12. It has been very sad. She was Only 32 days old. Born June 10th. She will be sadly missed, and i will never forget that bang on my door at 3 am in the morning, and me trying to give CPR To the poor lil baby girl. and then helping The parmedics, I now have angel care for my baby girl. i ws totally against angel care before this happen, iam now all for angel care and i would recomend it to anyone, i have a peace of mind now. I have been with my sister lots, to be there and keep her company, i feel so bad for her, i have my baby and she dont have hers, we are very close, we are twins. and i just wish baby Girl kaydynce could of stayed!!, and faith and her could of played. i will never ever forget..

We dont no how it happened, They have no answers as to why, She was asleep on her back, My sister found her at 3 am in the morning dead, and then she came and ran and got me while her bf was on the phone with 911, and then i ran back and tryed to help. I never ever wanna see that again, i will never forget. That was there first baby to, my sister is doing better, now that she got answers the same day the baby went in for autopsy and after the funeral for baby girl. In hinton here this is like the very first case ever in a very long time for SIDS, They have really no resources here, all we found out was all online info, is that a baby could die in  your arms from SIDS and theres not a damn thing you can do about it, or in a car seat or in a bouncy chair.. a stroller.. its crazy, iam a parinoid parent now.

I'll bet!  I am paranoid right now as well.  Ava has been coughing and sneezing alot lately, and I read that resporatory problems can lead to SIDS, that is why it's most common in the "cold" season.  Did your neice have a cold, or was she stuffy or anything?  

Again, I am soo sorry for your loss.  I know she is in a better place, but that doesn't make things any easier.  Honestly, if this happens to me, I do not think I can continue living.  I DON'T think I could live without Ava, I am not strong enough.  I love my little girl with my entire heart and soul, and I would nothing without her.  I catch myself calling her "My little Angel" and it scares the sh!t out of me when I call her that.  It hurts my heart to think of her actuall "being" an Angel.  There have been soo many tragedies lately.  I truly hurt for you and your family right now.

I do not even want to be away from Ava for 5 minutes.

She was perfectly fine, i was over there like at 11:30 pm and put her in her basinet for my sister, she was perfectly fine. I just no i will never forget it, and i no if it happens to any baby, theres not a damn thing you can do about it, which scares me even more, i cant wait till faith gets older. iam so parnoid from this now. she will be forever missed though. One day we will see her again. Iam just parnoid over the sids thing now, even with the angel care. really whats the point of having that, if you cant do anything anyway, iam going to be a nervous reck, i just hope one day they will have answers to why it happens. we are getting some big companys here in town to do a fundraiser for SIDS. We are doing a garage sale here, and all donations goes to SIDS. we got a decel put on my sisters back of her car ( a friend got it made). and its Blue and pink, thats the color of the SIDS ribbon, and it says in loving memory for kaydynce and SIDS on the top, i told my sister, that one is very rare, there was only 20 made.

I am so sorry about your sisters loss.  I know how hard it is, I lost my first son to SIDS, he just turned 6 months old. It has been 16 years.  I thought I would die, I can remeber giving him cpr and the feeling you have of helplessness  I have since had three more children and expecting my 4th.  If you or your sister ever want to talk feel free to PM me.  As time goes on it does get easier, but you never forget.  Remeber, it' s not your fault, her fault or anyone elses.  God does have a plan and we just can't see it through the pain.  16 years later, I still don't understand why, but I have accepted it and I know I didn't do anything wrong.  Guess God needed another Angel.  My prayers are with you and your family.

We Get Out Of the house lots, and go fishing for something to do. i know she cant get up, like she wanted to at first, but i hope she continues to have more children, but i told her not to bother having any kids right now, because she wont hold babys and iam not understanding why she wont, i no probably because she lost her baby, but i did tell her, she cannot run from her problems, she has to face them. She is seeking help from a concellor but she dont really like this consellor.
