Well, I have mastitis. I had it once when Abby was born and thought I was going to die. This time was no different. Talk about miserable. I think that when criminals are sentenced to prison, they should also get mastitis-haha! I guarantee crime rates would drastically drop! Thankfully, I started antibiotics yesterday and I am feeling better. I am so ready to feel like a normal human being again. But, being sick and feeling like pooh has helped with losing the baby weight. I only have about 4 or 5lbs. to go until I am at my pre-preggo weight. YAY! (you have to look for the positive in these situations-haha!)

And, of is ALL worth it, though, when you get to look at these 2 all day long! :) Talk about being blessed!
Resting with my girls. :)
Awwww....another Daddy's Girl!

Sorry to hear of the mastitus! Ooch! Good for you for attempting to nurse, after the horror of our first ones.....we deserve a metal!

hey. i'm alicia's best friend, janelle. anyhow, i had my little girl august 14th and got mastitis a week later. now we have thrush. we are going in on our 5th week of having it. i had it with my son too. be careful because taking antibiotics can lead to it. it's basically a yeast infection in your nipple and the baby can get it too. look for white dots (not milk deposits) on the sides of her cheek. it's nasty stuff...lots of boiling and using vinegar to wash stuff. hope it doesn't happen to you and olivia!

Thanks! Not even nursing, though. Having a hard time with pumping, which I am now done with. Those that can nurse and or pump through pain like that are my heroes. Maybe this is what I get for giving up. (sigh) Damn Mommy guilt.

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
