I'm going to guess that Noah weighs over 14lbs by now, which is a far cry from the 6.5lbs he weighed just after his surgery! He seems to be going through a growth spurt right now because he's eating and sleeping more than usual. So far he's been gaining about an ounce a day. We find out on Thursday exactly how much he weighs when we go and see the cardiologist. I always get nervous for these appointments. I'm terrified that something will be wrong but desperate for reassurance that he's doing well.
I love the costumes at Old Navy but I thought they looked too big. I guess I couldn't imagine him being that big in such a short period of time! There's still time though, I may go and get him one :)
My daughter wants to be a vampire. She has very pale skin, light blue eyes and dark blonde hair and she wants to wear black lipstick. Also she has no front teeth so I think she'll look super cute! She's at a fun age and loves Halloween because her birthday is just a few days before. I guess my mom will make her a costume since she's done it pretty much every year so far! I'll have to post pics!

Hey Sandra, I wouldn't be too worried about how much Noah sleeps - Maisley is a real sleepy-head, too.

eah, Noah slept for a couple of minutes but then he had his picture taken with DD and DH so he ended up waking up. Plus, it was pretty cold and windy and the sun was in his face so he got really mad! We had a good time all in all though. He has a skeleton costume, a superman costume and the pumpkin costume. I'm not sure if they'll even fit him by the time Halloween rolls around though because he's growing so fast!
How much does Maisley weigh now?

It's amazing that Maisley already has her routine all figured out! Noah usually goes to bed between 9 and 10:30 and sleeps until about 7... He's not too fussy if we deviate though.
How much is maisley awake during the day? I think Noah sleeps a lot for a 3 month old! He's awake for an hour and a half in the morning and from about 4-7pm but that's about it... It worries me a little!

Renee, I had to laugh when I read your post because I took Noah to a local pumpkin patch yesterday and did the exact same thing you did! I attached pics below. Poor kid!

Like you, I think back to last year having just lost my baby... I had just been given the go-ahead to try again at this point. For me Halloween is a big deal. I think it's because it was the first "kid holiday" without Zach. I had already picked out his costume and was looking forward to handing out candy in our new house with our little guy... It was so hard! This year I think I ma be going a little overboard with Noah... he has three costumes and a sleeper!!! I can't help myself! I'm just so happy to have him and to be able to do these things with him. I'm so thankful!

So, as for Thanksgiving, we had dinner at my grand-mother's last night with my family and tonight we'll be celebrating SIL's birthday at DH's parent's house. Tomorrow we'll take it easy! Next weekend is an exciting weekend for us, Noah is getting baptised!!! We're not super a religious family but I feel that baptism is important so that should be fun... I guess I have a lot of prep work to do this week! I find that everything now takes 3 times as long as it did before we had a(nother) baby. Like dishes, cleaning, getting out the door... But I wouldn't change it for anything!

Happy Thanksgiving ladies! I'll post a couple of pics of Noah in the pumpkin patch!

Renee,

Maisley looks sooooo cute! She will just have to put up with Mom being a little embarrassing. I am sure some day she will do the same thing to her own children.

Life has been very busy here. Cicely is growing like a weed. She is still not sleeping well at night and we have tried just about everything. I am soooo tired. Last night DH sat up with her for a few hours so that I could sleep. I 'm feeling a little better today. I am so frustrated though because I have no energy to do anything and when I am tired I eat. I haven't gained any weight, thank God, but I haven't lost any either. I still feel 6 months pregnant:smileysad:.

I wanted to post some new pictures, but we just got a new computer and DH hasn't updated everything yet...maybe next week.

I hope everyone else is doing well.

Melissa
