Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

A Little Life Update & Aiden Pics!

My son is fussy.  Really that's the biggest news to me.  I think he is starting to teeth for his upper teeth lately.  Also he has been working harder and crawling and pulling himself up.  The sleep at night is getting better after a week of waking up constantly.  We even got a few nights of 9 hours without a peep from him.  I'll be glad when we start getting that regularly again.  It helps all of us to get a good nights sleep!

I went to my dr. for a follow up on my Postpartum Depression.  I told her I was still having bad days and the meds seem to wear off at night and I have a harder time.  So she went ahead and gave me 40mg instead of the current 20mg a day I was taking.  Hopefully the extra boost will help me feel stable all day and night!  She also said I might want to consider speaking to a therapist, just to have an outsider to understand what I am going through.  It looks like my mom's work offers family up to 6 free visits, so I may just look into that. 

Another note of my health, I had my IUD removed.  I just feel like the added hormones from it aren't doing me any good.  I've heard that Mirena can have some strong emotional side affects and I figured it's best if I don't have that on top of everything else.  Not to mention the constant yeast infections I've been having.  I'm 100% certain it's from my IUD so I am soo relieved to have it out and hopefully get past that as well.  Sorry if that is TMI for you readers, but I figured I someone else is having IUD troubles they'd find comfort in knowing what I went through.  Just for the record, I am back on birth control pills for now.  It's the same one I was on for 8 years so I know I don't have problems with it and look forward to having NO side affects!

I finished yet another book, Sarah's Key.  I read it in 5 days and will have a review up for it soon.  I'm now at 6 books completed for the year.  I will surely be passing my goal of 12 for the year if I keep up at this rate.  I have already started my next book.  Angels & Demons by Dan Brown.  I have seen the movie, but only once, so it's slowly coming back to me as I read.  I like that I haven't seen this movie too much though, makes the next time I watch it even better!  I have the newest book, The Lost Symbol, to read later on too. 

I guess that is about all.  Aiden has been trying a lot of table foods and I"ll be adding something about it on the sidebar.  Keep your eye out for that!  Hope all is well.  I'm sorry I've been lame at leaving comments.  Lately I only have time to skim through my reader before I have to get offline.  I'll try to do better.

{last 2 pics are of Aiden's new smile - it's his "cheese" smile.  He looks like a little pirate - he closes one eye and sticks his teeth out}

Those pictures are so adorable! My soon is teething really bad now too. I hope his first set of teeth comes out soon. He's literally attacking anything that comes close to his mouth. I hope that you are feeling better soon - cant imagine what you are going through. Will keep you in my prayers friend.

a) 9 hours sounds AMAZING!!! Maybe Aiden can teach Jack how that works? ;)
b) Teething is tough.. and fussy babies are tougher. Hang in there and know we're here for you!
c) I had no idea there were emotional side effects affiliated with Mirena that were recognized by the medical community... perhaps this explains the fact that I have questioned my own stability/sanity so much?
d) Awww, books. I remember those... I'm really going to try to read something other than a child/mommy/family book. You're my proof that it is possible ;)

Hang in there...but I am glad you are seeing your Dr and going to talk to someone else. It really does help. Just keep taking one day at a time, and take some dedicated time to yourself.
