Re: AUGUST 2011 chat--HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

4 years ago today we lost our little bean at almost 11weeks, just 4 days before Sydney's first birthday when we were planning on telling our families. she/he would have been due in Feb '09. I still miss my baby, and hate that going through the miscarriage has left such devastating emotional scars. Still, I feel so blessed to have had a chance love that little baby.
I miss my february baby, but am so excited about all my august babies. Sydney turns 5 on Friday, KEzia turns 1 on Sunday, then elijah turns 3 on the 25th. go august!
still need to upload picks from the party, hopefully later.

Re: AUGUST 2011 chat--HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

Sorry I'm never around Mamas, I just don't have time to keep up with everything!!

The BEST ways to follow me are definitely facebook & then my blog. www.teachinauntie.blogspot.com

I'm uploading pictures from Vinnie's birthday party right now...here's a quick update on him/us:

He'll be one tomorrow (8/8) but we had his party Saturday. He's about 20 lbs 5 oz and almost 29" tall. He's a chunky little guy.

He can stand unassisted for a few seconds & then sits down. He starts hands/knees crawling at 10 months, after several months of army crawling.

He creeps around furniture but isn't quite ready to walk. (I think a few more weeks....)

He is still highly allergic to corn. We haven't re-tested his reactions to bananas, sweet potatos, avacados, or any of the other allergens he has reacted to.

He can only eat special cheerios (made from rice/potatoes), rice chex, rice puffs, and rice krispies--all of which are also gluten free.

He eats cooked meats with no flavor on them, chicken, sausage, steak, roast, etc.

He can also have small amounts of fresh fruit like peaches, apples, and canteloupe, but if he has too much then he has a reaction.

He is still nursing strong, but does drink breastmilk or watered down juice from a cup or bottle.

I had my biopsies on July 9/10 and both came back negative for cancer. BUT, my breast biopsy site is no "abnormal". I got an infection immediately & then a week later got mastitis at the site. Now it is a VERY large lump, like the size of a cherry (where as before it was smaller than a pea). It is red & has a bullseye type look on the outside of my skin and is swollen, where as before you had no idea where it was.

The thyriod biopsy was actually more painful (initially) but is now fully healed & fine. Unless it swells I'm on regular 6 month check-ups for that.

I also have regular 6 month check-ups for the boob, but I'm going to see an LC soon & see if she thinks I should push for another follow-up.

He did eventually get into the cake (one of friends has a child with severe food allergies as well & she made this everything free cupcake & frosting just for Vinnie)

Re: AUGUST 2011 chat--HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

We're really there huh? Ugh. Sooo not ready. It's hard to imagine you have a almost 1 year old when he still gets up 300 times a night to eat and has just llearned how to army crawl and get into a sitting position by himself. He seems so much younger... but he's incredibly long, so there you go. lol

I still haven't a clue what I'm doing for his first birthday. I'm thinking the fair and a cake.

I got him a Fisherprice table for his birthday, and a birthday shirt. I'm thinking he needs some little chunky cars though as well. He seems to be obsessed with jake's but jake isn't sharing well.

can't wait to watch all the birthday pictures roll in!
