I also completely agree. You're never far from our hearts and prayers....please do keep in touch. I worry so much about you; I hope you know we're all here to listen if you should ever need to talk and vent how you feel. Don't EVER worry about bringing us down - you just focus on healing. We're here for you, no matter what.
That said, here's my contribution....Name:
JenniferBaby's bday and age now:
William Alexander was born on October 17, 2007. That makes him about 7.5 weeks old.How are things going with baby:
Superbly well! He's nursing like a champ!! Born at 11 pounds, 2 ounces and 23.25 inches, he's now an incredible 14 pounds, 8 ounces and 25 inches (as of this past Wednesday). He's HUGE!! He's now smiling and cooing and being really sweet. Unfortunately, we found out he's allergic to dairy (meaning I now am dairy-free...not as bad I thought it would be) and has colic. Every few days, he has this major meltdown for several hours through the evening...no reason, except to increase my level of anxiety.
He sleeps great (meaning, he loves it), refuses a paci (which is FINE by me), and is so-so about being in his ring sling or Moby...he gets bored really easily.How are things going with YOU:
I'm doing well. I've actually lost 20 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight (I had a lot to lose, got really bad morning sickness initially, and am now dairy-free), shooting for another 25-30 pounds to lose. I feel really good mentally, though some days my toddler drives me insane and I wonder....that's the one area in my life that desperately needs improvement, my relationship with my toddler. He's doing a lot of acting out since Will arrived.What are you doing for the holidays?
Um, we're supposed to go with my mom to her boyfriend's family, but with both boys recently being discovered to have dairy (and soy) allergies - including citrus for my oldest - I'm terrified of taking him to holiday parties. He's a huge lover of chocolate and cookies, and he now can't have it.....sounds like a head-ache to me.Post pics, if you want:
I'll come back later and update this....no time right now...
