Mari, Julia is certainly in my prayers! I'm sure you feel scared right now. I hope you get answers quickly to give you some peace of mind. ((hugs)), my friend.


Jess, happy birthday to Gabby!!! Two is so big. :smileyhappy: I'm glad your pregnancy is go so well. I hope that remodel speeds a long now. We were majorly under construction when Fletcher was born. It made me completely crazy, but in the long run, it didn't truly hurt. But I totally understand how frustrating it is!

Christine - can you update my ticker?  <a href="http://lilypie.com/"><img src="http://lb3f.lilypie.com/QbUam5.png" width="400" height="80" border="0" alt="Lilypie Third Birthday tickers" /></a>

Mari - I will be keeping you and Julia in my prayers!

waving hi to everyone else


AFM: I can't believe my baby girl is 2! How the heck did that happen. We celebrated her birthday on Friday with a special breakfast from mama and then Daddy took her to the local zoo in the afternoon after a fun day at daycare. She had a great time hanging out with her daddy. We had family and friends over on Saturday (it was about 30 people). I couldn't believe all the kids we had, we probably had 10 kids here. I am so glad that we had the volleyball net up, the bocce ball set out and the tunnel and slide up for the kids to play.  She got spoiled as usual. We got a lot of books that we ended up taking back (because we had duplicates and didn't need 15 new books) and got some cool stuff for her new room.

The baby is doing well - I am now going every 2 weeks to my nutrtionist and every 2 weeks to my MW/OB. But besides my GD, some heartburn and hip pain it's a pretty easy pregnancy.

We bought Gabby a big girl bed, just waiting for it to come in, so we can get it and put it together. The remodel is STILL going on. We are really at a standstill and I don't know what else to do. We are holding the last bit of money that we haven't paid them yet and just praying that we get the rest of it completed. I am just sick of them telling us "it will be next week and x, y and z will be going in" and then that week comes and nothing happens and I ahve to call to find out. ugg! As long as it's done in the next month or 2 months I will be okay, I just want the eletrical to be in so I can get Gabby into her new room. sigh.

You're in my prayers Mari! Hope you can get some more info from a specialist. Please KUP.

Oh, Mari - so sorry for the news about Julia. Will you go to a specialist to confirm the diagnosis? I do understand how you'd want to find out NOW, even if it's scary. Just know that the younger neurosurgery is done, the more likely the brain will recover completely. Other areas of the brain can compensate for what might be taken out.

I'll keep you and Julia in my thoughts, and please keep us posted.

Hi all!

I've been avoiding this post for a while, kind of a denial thing...

There is something about Julia. For a long time now, I've noticed that her soft spot in her head is too small. At least really small compared to the one Fede had. I aske d her pediatrician about it last wednesday. and he said that he too was worried about her head. That the shape wasn't as round as it should be and that he was worried that her scalp sutures were closing too fast. Since I asked pretty openly he answered too... His diagnosis for now is plagiocephaly, with a chance of craniosynostosis. In the first case, it can usually be trated with a baby helmet. In the second case... there is need of neurosurgery....

On one side I am so scared of the posibility of surgery. On the other, if that's what she needs I want to find out NOW, because the risk of brain damage scares me even more.

Please pray for my baby!

Name/SO's Name:Adrienne and James

Children's names and ages: Jamey, 21 months

Any new milestones or fun stories:  He is definitely starting to "talk" more and more.  I put this in quotes because his actual number of words is still not a lot, but it seems like all day he is using sign language and pantomime to communicate with me--he wants me to say in words what he's trying to sign . . . today before lunch he was really hungry because he skipped snack and I came back in the living room from the kitchen and whined at me, pointed back to the kitchen and did the sign for "cooking"---LOL--I was like: "You want me to finish cooking lunch so you can eat?"  (BIG NOD)  LOL.   So his ideas are getting more and more complex which is really fun.  He has actually started to use real words more also--he is saying "Daddy" now when he sees James which is really fun for James.  

What are you looking forward to this month:  James' cousin with twins is having their first birthday party on Sunday, I'm excited to see the kiddos and let them play together!

Just for fun, complete this phrase - "Before I had kids, I thought: "kids don't eat that much anyway"   HA!

Christine, thanks for asking! My homeschool meeting was FANTASTIC. I left feeling SO inspired and ready for the school year. We have some great field trips planned, and the co-op itself is going to be just what we needed. This term we will be covering Bible, some history, geography, phys. ed., and art. There will also be time for snack, lunch, and free play.

LLL is going pretty well. I'm a little discouraged that we have the same four moms at every meeting, but I'm thankful for those ladies. They make a great core group. I keep reminding myself that we haven't even advertised yet, so it's no wonder we don't have many people. I'm still hunting for a spot to be our official meeting place. The church didn't work out due to insurance issues, and the library cost $60 for one hour!!!!! Too much if you ask me. As soon as we have a real "home" for our group, I will make fliers and business cards. Hopefully that will help.

In other news, Fletcher has an eye doctor appointment, and I need some extra prayers for this visit. One of Fletcher's eyes crosses (strabismus). When he has his glasses on, he looks totally fine, but we are working toward correcting the problem beyond the glasses. We felt really good about the treatment plan back in PA, but after our first visit with a doctor here in FL, we didn't really feel like we were on the same page. I hope today makes things a little clearer.

Katja--

Have you tried sticking the baby bath over your kitchen sink and using the sink sprayer with warm water? It was the only way Peter was happy in the bath as a baby. That way, he never got cold. I kept the plug out of the bottom so it didn't get too deep, and just sprayed with one hand and washed with the other.

Erica - How exciting about your homeschool co-op! How did the meeting go? And how is your LLL group doing?

Katja - The pictures of Eric are adorable! And you look amazing!

Cheryl - PTing is getting better. Thankfully she got right back on track after vacation. Still having the occasional accident here and there. She's still in pull-ups at sleep times and when we're in the car for a long time though she's been dry at naptime for awhile now.

Ash - Can't believe you're so close! Will your mom be coming to visit soon?

AFM - Looks like we might be moving Selin to a big girl bed soon. Friends of ours are moving overseas and gave us their DD's bed and Selin was totally excited when DH brought it home last night. We still have to buy a bed rail and assemble it so not sure if we'll get it up this weekend (DH is working today) but hopefully the transition will go well. She's already saying "cribs are for babies" and that her crib will be for her brother or sister. On that note, we started TTC this weekend! Hoping to get lucky on the first try again. ;-)

Baths- We used one of those baby buckets (called a tummy tub) http://www.amazon.com/Original-Tummy-Baby-Bath-Clear/dp/B000VS3C2E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1344778478&sr=8-1&keywords=tummy+tub . And it was great! Babies love being in them and they are super safe and easy to use. I already have it out for the next one. After he was bigger and more aware I started using something like this http://www.amazon.com/PRI-Infant-Bath-Seat-White/dp/B000BXJZDY/ref=sr_1_5?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1344778576&sr=1-5&keywords=bath+seat seat prop, and then once he was sitting he just started taking normal baths.

Toddlers 2/3- I so feel you on this ladies! On the one hand it is SO great to really watch that independence take hold and for Teddy to start having his own ideas about how the world works and how he can interact with it. On the other hand sometimes being part of this journey and staying patient and positive and understanding is SO hard when it is only 10:30 in the morning and you have already had what feels like a 100 discussions/messes/arguments/pushes for correct behavior/etc. If you can try and get some toddler free time- I know I always come back feeling so refreshed and totally ready to tackle this time with Teddy. I know you all are doing a great job!

Twins- I can't say I am surprised :smileyvery-happy: But I really enjoyed reading your blog post on why it changed your feelings!
