The greatest love of all is be able to have a child’s love, To love your child and to have your child love you back, Waking each morning with your child’s eyes on you. A child’s love keeps you believing in brighter days, Believing that dreams do come true; Giving you hope for a brighter future, Bring happiness to your heart, Bringing rainbows to every gray sky, Having the love and comfort of a child is the greatest gift in life; A child’s love is forever lasting, No matter how far you travel, No matter how many miles away, You will always have your child’s love in your heart, It will never go away, You can always feel your child’s presence in your heart, Your child’s home is in your heart.

Morgan, about the mummer, don't freak out. Lots of things like this happen to babies and are normal. Remember Chris my older son we heard he had degeneration in his back and his disks and spine were that of a 30 year old. Of course I found tons of diseases and syndromes it could be and was convinced he would be in a back brace and it turned out nothing was wrong but some calcium deposits on his back. I would tell your husband and just try not to over react so he does not.

MORGAN, i'm sorry to hear about Leytons heart murmur. It must be scarry for you , i hope everything is ok. Well the part for our microwave is $150 and the microwave itself was $300. Of course our warenty ran out. It just p__ses me off b/c we have only had this for 3 years, you should get more than 3 years out of a microwave. So now the delema is do we fix it or get a new one. Right now we are using the one i bought at target for like $50 6 years ago, that one will probably never die. I would continue to use it but we need to fill the space over the stove b/c it just looks bad.

yeah....and when you try to find out more info on the net about what a murmur is...you find out all kinds of bad stuff along with it: I just found out that 25,000 babies a year are born with holes in their heart walls or misshapen heart valves...which they can correct by surgery...still I'd almost rather have him have a hyperactive thyroid and be on meication than have to go through surgery being so little. I wish I knew when the appointment was going to be. I want to hurry up and know what is going on.

Morgan, I am so sorry to hear about Leyton. And like everyone else has said, don't go searching online for info. It is really quite common and usually subsides on its own. Try not to stress, I know, easier said then done. Sending you {{{BIG HUGS}}} Jen, I'm glad you found a great alernative to daycare. That must be such a relief. Krissy, sorry about the microwave problems. That is what we've found with appliances, the expensive ones break down frequently, and the cheap ones keep going and going. Kimberly, I read your other post and Kenadie is doing the same thing as Kyleigh. It seems like she eats constantly in the day, but it is about 4 oz every 1.5-2 hrs. If I try to give her more, she just spits it back up, like I've overfed her. I talked to the ped about rice cereal in the bottle, and he's against the idea. He just recommends to feed her 'on demand, with what she'll eat.' So I'm at a loss of what to do. I hope everyone has a good day!!

kim i am surprised your peds is agianst the rice ceral it was the peds that told me to do it and wow what differene it made even her bm"s have improved meaning she is less consipated she just having normal bowel movements now

my dr. was for me giving leyton cereal as well also. It made a difference too. He finaly slept throught the night again, and I finaly got him back on his regular schedule. It got messed up earlier in the week, and he'd been waking up between 3-5 am to eat, but now we're back to sleeping through the night again (11-12 hrs) yay! Still dont know when the pediatric cardiologist appt is, because they didnt call me yesterday, so I have to wait until Monday before I find out.

Kim, I am at loss as what to do also. I always have waited to give cereal until 4 months. I know lots of people who have given it earlier and thier babies did fine. I might try the Enfamil Ar formula it has rice starches in it to thicken it up. I have a bunch of coupons for it anyway. Krissy, I can relate to the microwave thing, a couple of weeks ago our refrigerator went out. It is only 3 years old too. Well the guy said it was the control board and it is a $200 part. My family owns a heat and air business, so we just purchased the part and my brother came over and put it on, it didn't work. So we ended up getting a used refrigerator from an appliance store, rather than paying another $200 to replace more parts. Hope you all are having a good weekend!

MORGAN, sorry to hear about Leyton's murmur. But it sounds like it may be completely fine, and if not, you are going to see a specialist that can tell you everything you need to know about it. Hang in there. I haven't given rice cereal yet, but I think my pediatrician is going to talk about that with me at the next appointment. I can't believe I almost have a 4 month old. She's still so much smaller than other babies her age. Grace still wears some new born clothes! And 3 month clothes are too big. Oh and I went and had her ears pierced the other day! It looks SOOO cute and she only cried for a few minutes and then she was fine. Hope everyone is having a good weekend :)

Posted new pictures up of Gracie with her earrings.

Amanda, love the pics, the earing are adorable. Sean is sick. Poor baby has his first cold. Gets it 3 days after he starts daycare. Ugh, how annoying but it was bound to happen. So we are spending the weekend cuddling and giving him lots and lots of love. Daddy is going to stay home with him on Monday and maybe Tuesday to let him rest. Nothing else new here. We meet with the lady about keeping Sean in the morning so i will let you all know how it goes.

 

kimberly - November 3

Hey girls! I posted new pics of Kyleigh and me! Take a look!

 

kim00 - November 3

Amanda, Grace is so cute, her earrings are so pretty. Kimberly, the new pics are adorable. Jen, I hope Sean gets feeling better soon, poor boy.

 

kimberly - November 3

Amanda, the pics are really cute! I have been wanting to get Kyleigh's ears done but I don't want it to hurt her. Jen, Kyleigh has a cold too, it seems worse today. I hope Sean feels better soon!

 

moescrilla - November 3
