Awww, look at all the sweet babes! I am loving all the updates and stories and I cannot believe how quickly everyone is growing. Joshua is of course growing way too fast too. He's just over 8 months old now. Here's a recent picture of him..

Love all the updates & pics!!!!! Can't believe how fast our little ones are growing. I know that I used to hear that all the time, but you don't realize the true meaning of them growing up fast until you have a child!!! It's crazy!!! Our little guy will be ONE next Tues the 8th. I can't even believe it. We are actually in the car now coming home from our first family vacation. We've survived a 12 hr car ride home so far. Can't wait to be there though. Here's a pic I took on vacation before we went out to dinner w/ the little guy. Hope you all are well & can't wait to see pics of LO's (fresh & older, lol) & updates!!!!! Hope you ladies are all well!!!

@auraleigh - Wow, a year already! They are so cute!

Auraleigh- They are soooo beautiful!! How exciting that they're almost one!!! I can't believe that Julia's already walking and that Ben is close behind- that's amazing!! LOVE this pic and the update!

ladies i love the photos!!! it blows my mind that everyone is growing up so fast. my two will be a year old in six short weeks. at 10.5 months julia is already walking and is too smart for her own good, and ben walks with a walker, has a smile that lights up a room, and is a total momma's boy.

Time for some Easter pictures. It is hard to believe a year ago I was getting ready to start my IVF cycle - now I have babies!
William on the left is 11 pounds 8 oz and 24 inches tall and Edward on the right is 11 pounds 11 oz and 24 inches tall. Amazing how much they have grown since birth.
Some pictures my sister took for Easter.

Thank you for the sweet comments!
hope4light - Time goes by so fast, I cannot believe your baby boy is already a year old! Happy birthday to him and to you.

shesaidboom - I'm so sorry you had difficulties, but am glad that you're back! He's a CUTIE!!!
Hi to everyone else!
AAM - Baby boy turned a year old a couple of weeks ago, he has 6 teeth (I think working on some more) and has been walking for over 2 months. He's growing so fast. I have NO IDEA where the time went. I swear it went so much faster with him than my DD's first year. We are doing well, DH got a new job and has had more home time recently, but I know that's about to change. DD is 3 1/2 and talking a LOT more (we got her these pre-reading books ~ pre level 1 and level 1)... I knew I didn't expect her to start reading, but I was hoping it would help with her speech and amazingly it has! She still isn't super clear, but even daycare said she's talking SO MUCH MORE now. It's frustrating for her (and us) though as it's still so unclear, but we're getting there. She loves to 'read along' with me, so we do those books every day. It's awesome. Today we are starting to look at houses as we are planning on buying a new home. I'm scared **itless to do it, but we are SO done paying rent for a house we hate, and paying way to much for it. We still own our first home back in our hometown, but it's been consistently rented for years now, so we feel OK about taking the leap.
And just because it's so my girl, daycare also told us that she 'is the most stubborn girl I've EVER met.' *sigh* gotta love my girl!
Hope everyone is good! I still follow along but don't have lots of opportunities to post.

|Sourire||Shesaidboom - SO. CUTE!!!!!|
|01-30-2014 06:52 AM|
Thank you! Kewpie, I'm sorry you struggled in that area too. It can be so hard.
Here's a pic of my now six month old..

shesaidboom - I'm glad to see you back! I had a super hard time with breastfeeding too and ended up having to quit. You're not alone in having struggles in that area. Welcome back!
|01-28-2014 09:20 AM|
|Sourire||Nice to hear from you, shesaidboom|
|01-28-2014 09:03 AM|
Hi ladies. Some of you may remember me. I posted here frequently several months back and then kind of disappeared. I had some issues after having my son with breastfeeding that made it really hard to be around any forums. I've been reading some of these updates and am SO happy and excited for all of you! Seeing the pictures of the babes I remember you talking about through your pregnancies has been wonderful. I hope it's ok if I start posting again. My son is now almost 6 months old. I'm looking forward to reading more updates.

lilac - oh ouch! That sounds awful! I had a plugged duct once and that was bad enough. I can't imagine a blister! I'm glad you've gotten some relief.
|01-24-2014 02:00 PM|
Lilac: That happened to me twice when Aria was new. So painful! Glad it's cleared!
|01-24-2014 10:39 AM|
|lilacvioletiris||Ugh yesterday I got a milk blister on one nipple. Talk about excruciating pain! Each time a baby latched on I would nearly scream out in pain. Emailed my lll leader and she called me and talked me through what to do. Basically I had to pop the blister like it was a milk filled zit. Finally this morning after the baby nursed the blister was poppable and the backup oozed out. Pain is gone now. It was terrible.|
|01-22-2014 06:52 AM|
Adorable, Lilac! Hard to believe it's been a month already
|01-22-2014 06:27 AM|
|lilacvioletiris||Ah, yesterday my boys were one month old. Here is their "princes" picture.|
|01-19-2014 05:39 PM|
Oh, I want to go outside but it is so cold and no safe sidewalks reliably cleared. Ugh.
Went to have baby pictures taken. It was nice and sunny, but the roads out where the photographer lives were snow drifted. It was near white out conditions from the blowing snow. Babies did pretty good but we definitely didn't get as many pictures of all 4 of us as I had hoped since I kept having to breast feed one baby or the other to calm them down. My husband says it will be a cold day in hell before he goes back. He finds picture taking "invasive". SMH. I will go back without him earlier in the day some day soon since the photographer wanted to do more shots and is giving them to us as a gift.

|Sourire||Laggie - I think FETs are pretty similar to donor embryo cycles. I took both estrogen and progesterone after I got my BFP, plus baby aspirin.|
|01-15-2014 11:14 AM|
Laggie - I only took progesterone after the transfer, but mine was an unmedicated cycle - so I only took progesterone before the cycle too (I didn't even take BCP)

happyhopeful and suzie - SOOOOO CUTE! I want to smoosh them both.
|01-13-2014 11:56 AM|
I usually would hold both and pace and rock just as I would have with one. If I just can't hold both for whatever reason, I'd put one in a safe place and go to a quieter room and calm one down and then go back for the second when I could. Sometimes the crying of one would keep the other one going, so separation had to happen. Another thing I'd do is rock one and put the other in a bouncy seat or rocker and bounce that one with my foot while I snuggled the other. You'll find your own groove and I promise, it goes by so quickly. I look at my 2 year olds running and jumping and talking up a storm and wonder where my gassy and refluxy newborns went. Congrats again to you!
|01-13-2014 11:39 AM|
rcr - I may have asked this before, but I'm wondering what meds you were on after transfer with your donor embie? The Greek clinic has me on prometrium, estrace, and a corticosteroid called prednisalone. I was expecting the prometrium but not the estrace or the steroid.

|lilacvioletiris||Oh suzie, Beth is precious. Yep I was tandem nursing the first day. Not every feed but most are in tandem. It allows meto sleepat night!|
