Have I posted photos of Kiernen lately? I forget! At any rate, here they are:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/purplegoddess/

You do have to add me as a contact to see them - as they are private - I'm not keen on the internets seeing all of my son's photos...

So Kiernen broke a tooth the other day - one of his front ones. I haven't talked about this much, but Kiernen has decay in his front 4 teeth - in fact, he has no enamel on the side two and enamel only on the bottom on the front two. So they're rather brittle I imagine. The rest seem okay, though, and we are super diligent about taking care of them.
He was climbing on some toy and slipped off and hit his face on the coffee table, and of course cried. I saw that part and he was pretty upset, so I could tell it really hurt, but I didn't see inside his mouth until much later that night to realize that his tooth was essentially broken in half horizontally.

An emergency call to the local ped dentist has us coming in for a visit tomorrow for him to have a look. Not sure what he will say, but we will see.

Kiernen doesn't seem to be in any pain though unless something cold touches the tooth, so we just aren't giving him anything cold.

kiernen isn't talking like the rest of your kiddos. He IS using some words, but not nearly as many as all of your kiddos. We watch "Signing Time" alot to help him to try and communicate with us, because as his needs are growing more complex, his vocabulary isn't keeping up, and there is a lot of frustration for him trying to let us know what he wants. I'm really good at reading him and "getting" what he wants, but I'm the only one, so it's difficult a lot of the time for him.

Physically he is developing in leaps and bounds, and his comprehension is amazing. He loves to sing and dance and climb and run. And he LOVEs his videos - signing time and youtube. We regulate them, though - so much else to do! LEt's PLAY! He loves his trains and vehicles now - and is reminding me SO much of Quinn lately, it's just amazing.

Not really. I've decided to trust the Universe to bring the best solution for his healing and well being. I mean, It really does suck, and I wish his teeth were healthy. And we have to work with what we have. So I'm trying to just think positively for him.

Adam is calling me "Mom" ... for over 24 hours now.

He reiterates after he says my name (he identifies all of us at random moments through the day) "Ahm mom." ("Adam's mom.") He's begun doing that with objects, too - Adam's milk, Adam's toy, Adam's wagon. Weird.

Henry went through a period of doing that, too. Then after a few weeks I was suddenly "Mommy." Phew! So it may change again...I was not ready to be "Mom."

JEREMY!!!!!! Congratulations! Very exciting! When are you due? (Still hoping we might see you guys in August!) We're still (sorta) TTC!

Hey Mamas! It's been awhile but I tHought I'd like to POP in and wish you all a great Memorial day weekend.

We're headed out on a toddler camping trip, with 4 of August little friends and their big people! Should be fun!

I'm really thinking about night weaning and/or moving A to his own bed for some part of the night... anyone have success stories in this dept they'd share to inspire me?? Please!??

A is so fun and just cracking me up these days! A couple quick stories;

We saw a puppy sticking it's head out of the window and crying for it's owner in a parking lot. We had talked about how the puppy was sad and probably wanted someone to come pet him, then 20 minutes or so later driving home he tells me. "Baby doggy crying." I said something like "Poor little thing." And he says "aaaaahhhww, sweeeeetie" in a sad little voice. It was the cutest!

Tonight we went to a restaurant that I had a coupon for, as i was pulling the coupon out of the book he wanted to "touch it. hold it. " like he does new things, and I explained that he could hold it as long as he didn't lose it b/c we needed the coupon to use at the restaurant. I probably used the word two or 3 times. Then just now, as I went in to nurse him back down in a half asleep state, he says, clear as a bell as he roots for his mamilks, "coupon". What a riot!

He has also taken to saying, when he's finished nursing on one side, "diffrent one, new one, other one or fresh one!" Where'd I get this kid!

Love hearing the stories about your big babes, and cute photos chasmyn!
Aren't they so much fun?
Check out our new pics in siggy link!

I got Memory Keeper's Daughter to take camping, about the 3rd time someone rec'd for me! Thanks! For Tv we record Brothers and Sisters and Grey's Anatomy, both over for the season, looking forward to Big Love starting again on HBO soon!

I should be packing for camping but I'm wiped out! I miss chatting with you all more often, but I've got my hands full these days! Still working 2X week with lots of pregnant mamas these days which I so love!

Ok, goodnight all!

Happy, busy mama of 2 - A (9/05) and W (2/08)

All My Babies Are Gone Now
By Anna Quindlen, Newsweek Columnist and Author

All my babies are gone now. I say this not in sorrow, but in disbelief.

I take great satisfaction in what I have today: three almost-adults, two taller than I am, one closing in fast. Three people who read the same books I do and have learned not to be afraid of disagreeing with me in their opinion of them, who sometimes tell vulgar jokes that make me laugh until I choke and cry, who need razor blades and shower gel and privacy, who want to keep their doors closed more than I like.

Who, miraculously, go to the bathroom, zip up their jackets and move food from plate to mouth all by themselves.

Like the trick soap I bought for the bathroom with a rubber ducky at its center, the baby is buried deep within each, barely discernible except through the unreliable haze of the past.

Everything in all the books I once poured over is finished for me now. Penelope Leach, T. Berry Brazelton, Dr. Spock. The ones on sibling rivalry and sleeping through the night and early-childhood education - all grown obsolete. Along with Goodnight Moon and Where the Wild Things Are, they are battered, spotted, well used. But I suspect that if you flipped the pages dust would rise like memories. What those books taught me, finally, and what the women on the playground taught me, and the well-meaning relations - what they taught me, was that they couldn't really teach me very much at all.

Raising children is presented at first as a true-false test, then becomes multiple choice, until finally, far along, you realize that it is an endless essay.

No one knows anything. One child responds well to positive reinforcement, another can be managed only with a stern voice and a timeout. One child is toilet trained at 3, his sibling at 2.

When my first child was born, parents were told to put baby to bed on his belly so that he would not choke on his own spit-up. By the time my last arrived, babies were put down on their backs because of research on sudden infant death syndrome. To a new parent, this ever-shifting certainty is terrifying, and then soothing. Eventually you must learn to trust yourself. Eventually the research will follow. I remember 15 years ago poring over one of Dr.Brazelton's wonderful books on child development, in which he describes three different sorts of infants:average, quiet, and active. I was looking for a sub-quiet codicil for an 18-month old who did not walk. Was there something wrong with his fat little legs? Was there something wrong with his tiny little mind? Was he developmentally delayed, physically challenged?

Was I insane? Last year he went to China . Next year he goes to college. He can talk just fine.

He can walk, too.

Every part of raising children is humbling. Believe me, mistakes were made. They have all been enshrined in the "Remember-When-Mom-Did" Hall of Fame. The outbursts, the temper tantrums, the bad language - mine,not theirs. The times the baby fell off the bed.

The times I arrived late for preschool pickup. The nightmare sleepover. The horrible summer camp. The day when the youngest came barreling out of the classroom with a 98 on her geography test, and I responded, "What did you get wrong?" (She insisted I include that here.) The time I ordered food at the McDonald's drive-through speaker and then drove away without picking it up from the window. (They all insisted I include that.) I did not allow them to watch the Simpsons for the first two seasons. What was I thinking?

But the biggest mistake I made is the one that most of us make while doing this. I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs.

There is one picture of the three of them, sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages 6, 4 and 1. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night.

I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.

Even today I'm not sure what worked and what didn't, what was me and what was simply life. When they were very small, I suppose I thought someday they would become who they were because of what I'd done.

Now I suspect they simply grew into their true selves because they demanded in a thousand ways that I back off and let them be. The books said to be relaxed and I was often tense, matter-of-fact and I was sometimes over the top. And look how it all turned out. I wound up with the three people I like best in the world, who have done more than anyone to excavate my essential humanity. That's what the books never told me. I was bound and determined to learn from the experts. It just took me a while to figure out who the experts were.

Happy, busy mama of 2 - A (9/05) and W (2/08)

: Thanks Tracy. That really made me tear up. I needed it because I think that I tend to move to fast. Good luck TTC! That's exciting. Glad you popped in.

Speaking of cute things. . . the other day, I went into the kid's room to wake them up and C was just so cute and blissfully sleeping that I had to get my camera. I took one picture and He stayed asleep, but must have been stirred by the flash because He barely opened his eyes and said "cheese" as I was about to take the next one, all while still laying with head on pillow.

Andrya brought me out of hiding!

I had been mia for a long time because I felt I just didn't fit in. I suppose I do..I guess it had gotten to me. Where did we leave off?? Who knows...

ok, hubby dear finally got an awesome job at a place called CSL Software Solutions in Burlington, VT and he's a project developer and wow, it's a fantastic job. It's a company that provides statistical sales reports for pharmaceutical sales companies (yep..he's a geek!) anyway.. LOL though he's making over 10k a year more than the last job, we were out of work for so long that we're still struggling and feel like we're sliding backward. It's tough but we'll make it all somehow...

me: well, I had a massive nervous breakdown. I tried to commti suicide 2x and luckily Nathanael was the one to save me. Just looking at his angelic face brought me back I guess. I found out I have premenstrual dysphoric disorder and though they wanted to admit me in the hospital and keep me for 11-12 weeks I resisted and now I'm on hormone therapy and I am a new and much better person. I can actually wake up each day feeling happy and that hasn't happend in YEARS. What had put me over the top was my mom being admitted to the hospital for pulmonary edema, once they got the fluid drained they found she has pulmonary fibrosis and so hearing your mom has something terminal is just devastating. She's now in a nursing home rehabbing and hopefully will one day return home to live out her days.

Nathanael, our Aug 05 boy. Well, what a sweet and wonderful ray of sunshine he is. He's developmentally around 10-11 months? He can't kneel or stand yet. He's trying! He doesn't say anything other than dada and sort of a "hello" holding his hand to his ear like the phone. He's about 19 lbs soaking wet but keeps growing bit by bit in length. He's got a lot of 2yr old stuff going on like he doesn't want to be fed to sleep at night now, he's very independant. He plays until he can't play anymore then comes to me, I hold him and off he goes. If I sit to play with him he goes off on his own adventures after a few minutes. He just has his own thing going on. He's bringing in the 2 yr molars too..poor guy!! He doesn't really eat solids all that well. He was for a while but slide backwards. He's going to the hospital week after next for a swallow study to see if it's a defect or if he's afraid of choking. He aspirates a lot and we're not sure what's going on. He likes songs, and is learning some sign language. He understands more than he does. Like I told him to roll the ball to mama using purely sign language and he did it. I cried! He has some hearing loss too. He went to a specialist after I wasn't happy with the State's Hearing Outreach Program. They noticed he wasn't truly hearing low tones and only barely passing on higher tones yet they wouldn't refer me to a specialist. I was ticked! So I had the peditrician get us in and voila! They did a tympanogram and his ear drum wasn't moving at all..meaning a lot of middle ear fluid which is common in those with down syndrome because of very narrow canals and the angle at which they lie. He did a fair job on the hearing exam, he'd hear sounds on the left but look right for them. So..anyway, he's getting these tiny tubes put in that will eventually fall out on their own when they're ready and hopefully he'll drain and he'll get to where he can hear properly!!

He's also not seeing all that well, when he looks at things like books he has to get right on top of them. So we're seeing a pediatric opthamologist in a few weeks.

He loves to dance and sing (babble) and is just a pure and utter joy. He has opened my eyes to this whole new world, the world of kids with special needs and I cannot tell you how grateful I am. First of all, because he's so delayed I get to have a baby longer! Also I've met some amazing people, gone through some tragedy, like having friends with down syndrome pass on ...my heart's been shattered by this but it IS a reality. I've witnessed cruelties in the world regarding those with mental disabilities (just go to youtube.com and search for down syndrome and it'll make you ILL). I'm just glad I get to be an advocate and I get to love this amazing boy. I am just scared about what may happen when I'm gone (those aforementioned videos online scare me to death). It's helped me focus on all the kids in general and hope I can teach them the way to advocate for their brother and shed light on those with differences and maybe help humanity in some way.

My other kids are all getting big and it brings tears of joy to my eyes. Soemtimes it's tears of wanting to pack it all in but mostly joy. I see my once pudgy 5 yr old blossom into a tall little 6 yr old finding herself as a reader and artist. I see my 13 yr old navigate the confusing world of teenagerhood and trying to get the help he needs to deal with his problems. I see my now 12 year old daughter mature and grow and the intracacies of watching her bounce between child and young woman. I see my 9 yr old approach 10 and how graceful she is and how beautiful that grace is..except for when her irish temper flares!!! I get to see my 4 yr old slip out of toddlerhood when I wasn't looking and become a sweet adn wonderful little man.

I get to see my husband, see him through this horrible ordeal and nurture his soul back to health. He's not the same guy he was and hopefully we'll be better for it....eventually.

So..I guess we fit in, we're all different in different ways. I'm still the mom to an Aug 05 boy who is still very much a baby, wearing 12 month old clothes and cuddling as much as ever.

sooooo did I miss anything hahahahaa!!! Love and hugs to all! Kitty and nathanael and the whole kit-and-caboodle!

Hey Aeriane! Glad to see you, I was wondering how things were going. I'm glad that things are improving for you and that you are feeling better! It sounds like you've been through a lot.

I'm glad that you are back!

Tracy! So nice to "see" you! Thanks for posting that - that was great. I mailed it to all of my mom friends.

Kitty, it is nice to have you back, too!! I'm so glad things are improving for you - Nathanael sounds like he is doing beautifully.

Adam is still calling me "mom" ?!?!? I hear "Mom?" from the living room and it's coming out of this tiny face...so odd. He is getting so much more sure of himself in public these days - I wish you all could see him.

My shy guy who has tended to stay in arms or quietly holding a leg while outside of the home walked into the grocery store today and announced "HI!" to everyone at the register. They all know him, and everyone picked their jaws up off the floor in time to return the greeting. He was so pleased with himself.

And he is HUGGING people and giving five and greeting people hello and good bye -- again, I am honestly amazed. He walked up to my friend the other day and simply said "Up." -- he has NEVER done this to anyone but me or dh. Amazing! He's also forming 2-4 word sentences and as of today, Sarah was promoted from "Da" to "Da-wah"! So cool!

And Sarah is almost crawling! She scooted/rolled about 5-6 feet today. And then laughed and laughed and laughed.

I love my life!

Love to all.

hey mamas! I've been MIA too a lot but just want to pop in real quick.

Things have been pretty busy lately...as busy as it can be with a toddler and newborn I guess.hen I'm done taking care of one boy, I move to the other guy.

Christopher have developed some serious major independence and social skills...he would love to walk home with a stranger without any hesitation...good thing or bad? He saids hi and bye to strangers too and walk up to little kids and look at what they are doing...he's so curious! His language is pretty much ontrack at his age based on what i read from you guys. He said things like..."Mommy fart, Daddy fart, baby burp, baby bottle, baby night night, drink milk, go out"...just any phrases with 2-3 words. Right now I think the only people who can keep up with his energy and other kids close to his age! He is just moving everywhere and touching everything! C has popped in 2 more teeth on the bottom and top..causing his bedtime to be 10pm now. I'm so tired!

Justin on the other hand is almost 2 months (already!!) This boy is just the total opposite of C! He's so serious, calm and low-maintenance. He only gives a half smile now and it's so hard to see him do just that! DS1 on the hand had a beeming smile by 3 weeks. J has been eating more lately..I find myself thinking "didn't I just feed you?" At night it's feeding every 2 -3 hrs still. He also stays awake for an hour or so now before sleeping again. J can definitely tell who takes care of him more during the day and he's starting to have preferences of who's holding him. The thing that is disturbing to me is J's stomach...he has serious gas issues...i can't keep up with his burps...he burps like 4-5 times after each feeding..once I lie him down to sleep..he needs to be burped again. :

that's my crazy days....very tiring indeed....especially the babywearing J for 2-3 hrs straight. I can hardly find time to brush my teeth, eat breakfast, drink some water, pee, shower, throw out trash without someone crying after 5 min. But they are just so adorable!! I don't know what i would do without my boys!

i do keep reminding myself that I need to take care of my needs too and that if J is crying because Mommy needs to get up, go pee and wash myself before each day starts then that's what Mommy needs to do.

I hope everyone is doing great and taking care of themselves! Days just go by so fast now when we are busy busy!

Happy Memmorial weekend! Lots of barbequeing?? I went to one with my parents and friends and a park...very nice and hot out!

Sitting at the table?

Kiernen sits on my lap or his Daddy's until he is finished, then he gets down and plays while we finish eating. Sometimes he wants to nurse after he's eaten so he'll stay on my lap while I finish my meal, but mostly he is out of here way before we finish eating.

my boys eat together at the table in the kitchen. Well , used to, until my oldest decided that he couldn't stand eating with the youngest who likes to chew with his mouth open and more so to annoy his biggest brother. The babies eat at their highchairs, but not necessarily iin them - and they are in the dining room. Gedalya likes to climb out of his high chair - the straps are meaningless - he slips right through them. So, he usually stands at his tray and Tehila sits at hers - until she decides to stand on the tray. I eat next to the babies and dh is never home. Gedalya likes to leave his meal and climb into my chair and wrap his arms around me while I"m eating and then lean around and slide into my arms and ask to nurse. I've got to say, he's yummy.
