- We are BROKE. Daycare is sucking the $$$ out of us and I'm trying to find a way to fix this without having to do unthinkable things.
- Laney is still suffering from her reflux issues and I feel horrible for her. Although she has been better through the night the last few nights.
- Tuesday I went and signed the release papers to switch the girls to a new doctor. I need some one who is going to take Laney's issues seriously and not treat me like I'm over reacting because my kids cries and spits up.
- Lillian has all of a sudden decided to start up with the back talking and inappropriate tones when talking to adults again.
- Screaming baby and mouthy pre-schooler make for one irritable mama.
- B has left on a 4 day hunting trip.
- Hunting has started...
- I HATE hunting season...
- Both of my sitters have decided to take the sames days off so now I have to take time off of work to stay home with the kids. Finding a sitter (because every one I know works!) has been challenging, but I think I finally found a sitter for 2 of the days so I only have to use one vacation day.
- Hunting season sucks. Yes it sucks enough to be repeated!

|How we slept Sat and Sun Nights|
|My Lilli was a chunker!|
|Practicing B for Daddy's name|
|"Come on mom I know it's late, but at least I'm not screaming!"|
She thought 9:30pm was a good time to work on crawling.
|First and second teeth|
|"That's for the table mom, it works great for teething!"|
|First teething biscuit|
|First frozen piece of fruit|

|Lilli's finally tracing!|
|Glue, glitter and feathers, yes please!|
|Mommy made her some popsicle stick puzzles while she cut...|
and cut... and cut some more...
|And then she passed out coloring around 7:30!|
|Football has started again!|
Don't judge, I didn't get to pick the team.
I really am too cute!
|She loves to cook!|
|Mom, get her off me!|
Are you seeing the trend here?

Then I had a new born. Still scared to death in the beginning I would get up with her, change her in her room, feed her and then put her back in the bassinet. Problem was, I wasn't putting her back in the bassinet until I was waking up a half hour later. I was scared to death I was going to drop her. Then we learned how to feed laying down. That was the end of it. I would fall asleep while she ate, she'd fall asleep and at some point I'd wake up and put her back in the bassinet.
Then Laney was born. Getting her to sleep was impossible. She cried for hours, you'd get her to sleep, lay her down and she'd wake up. I can't tell you how many night I fell asleep propped up against my wall with pillows under both arms so she could sleep on my chest and I could still sleep too. Then we discovered the reflux and we were able to sleep laying down again, but by this point she was so used to sleeping on me she would wake up the second I laid her down anyway. So we started going to sleep with her eating (laying down) I have a king size bed and it was just the two of us (that's a whole other post) so after she'd fall asleep I'd just get up and move to the other side of them and barricade her in with pillows. At midnight we'd do the same thing. This had been going on for quite some time now, OK more like 5 months and part of it is my fault. I admit I like sleeping with her and having her cuddle up to me.
But Friday night I said enough is enough. I want my bed back and I'd like my husband in it with me. So Friday night after bath I changed her in her room, sat down with her, fed her and when she was done I took her off the boob (which wakes her up some) and let her fall asleep.
Saturday for both naps, I waited until she was good and tired and I laid her in her bed awake. Both times she was able to put herself to sleep. Bed time went well, but she woke up after a couple hours screaming off and on. Even after I picked her up and took her to my room she was screaming. I think it was teeth. They looked a little red and she was chewing her thumb and screaming in her sleep. We got through the night with only 4 wakings though.
Last night went great. I don't think I was in there 10 minutes with her, including feeding her. Then I decided that rather than take her to my room and lay down to feed her I'd sit in the chair and feed her. It took about 10 minutes I think and she then slept in her crib until almost 6 this morning!
Hopefully I can keep up with sitting in her room to feed her at night.
Maybe tomorrow I'll write a post about my husband coming back to my bed...

Newborn 6 Months
*Dr. Do Nothing did comment that her weight gain has slowed and will slow even more as she starts to crawl and get around more. She isn't concerned. I on the other hand am a little, her weight gain didn't slow, it stopped last month. Although she was comparing it to her 4 month weight of 15lb 3oz.
|Sure I play with this paper until Dr comes in!|

It still stings some times when I'm reminded of it, which thankfully isn't very often these days. But this weekend as I was going through EVERY piece of clothing I own, I ran across this...
That arrow is pointing to the baby and the heartbeat the baby had that day.
It's amazing I still remember how excited I was all day when I found out and I remember thinking of how to tell B. And him refusing to open the "Christmas" gift. Oh that Christmas. Still as I said in my first post, my favorite. I don't think I ever posted these...
Nothing really can replace those looks and that excitement. I hope to have one more some day and I hope that we don't have to tell anyone we are TTC because I'd love to see faces like that again one day...
So happy to have my girls today though. Sorry for the bummer post, just wanted to remind people that although time heals, it can't take it away.
