Long time no see...
I have totally fallen off the face of the planet, and have decided I need some more "mom" time on here!
My daughter was due in April but was born May 8 - I think I was in the last four of the April DDC!
The transition to two kiddos has been hard for me. I'm a teacher part-time, and school starting was SO hard! I hadn't been since April vacation, so a four and a half month break has made it a tough transition mentally. Even worse for me now is that I REALLY don't want to be here anymore. If we could afford it, I'd be a SAHM in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, we barely make it with me part-time because of the lack of pay from having two kids in two years. If we didn't have the credit card bills that were run up while I wasn't getting paid, then I could afford to stay home. It sucks.
Anyway, on a happy note, I am loving being a mom to two girls. They are so much fun. My "little" Catherine was 10 lbs 15 oz and 21" when she was born a day shy of 42w. At her 4 month checkup she was 15 lbs 10oz and 26 1/4". If I compare her to her older sister, she is the same length, but weighs a pound less. Funny, because they're so opposite in appearance, too.
Catherine will be 5 months next week, and she's rolling over both ways and can sit unsupported for short periods of time before keeling over.
What's really funny is that she 'walks' - I thought they lost their stepping reflex way before now, but if you hold her by her hands she can totally walk, no problem. She's been standing on my lap since she was born, so who knows?
Here's my two sweeties:http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b8...x/101_0282.jpghttp://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b8...gust132007.jpg
I may be crazy, but I'm already planning for #3. We won't be ttc for at least a couple years, but since I want to go for a vba2c I need to research ahead of time. I happily found a midwife who will take me as a homebirth client, so at least I know there's someone out there for me - if I can convince DH to go alont with it!
Ok, enough rambling. I just wanted to check in and need to get on here more. The ladies left from the DDC were all that got me through those last couple weeks... I look forward to being on here more with you ladies.
