had to hurry and get this down

Brylie got a playset that has a hair dryer, curling iron, brush etc and she came up to me and asked if she could " curl" my hair because if she curls Satine's fur ( our cat) she's afraid she will bite her. I giggled.

first bath

Something happened to my camera and some of my pics came out with weird lines in them. Oh well, what do you do? Little Haybree (my nickname for her) is doing so well, and we are all in love with her.

Happy Birthday My dear sweet Brylie Bug. You are 4 years old and such a joy to have in my life. When I look back at your 4 short years, I remember so many smiles and laughs and that cute little angel face. You are such a happy girl, and rarely sad. You make me laugh when I'm mad and sad and you have such tender heart for your sisters. I am so lucky to have you, Brylie, you are my sweet girl.

Hailey's Birth

We went in at 6 am, got hooked up to monitors and iv's and filled out paperwork. Got wheeled into the OR at 7:34, seemed like it took FOREVER to get the spinal in. Finally it was in and I immediately started to feel my legs get numb, and started giggling. They laid me down and immediately I felt exposed. Even though I couldn't feel anything I KNEW I was naked. Not fun. I was talking to the anesthetist guys and they were doing things to me asking if i could feel this and that. Finally Nate came in all dressed in his awesome jumpsuit, and he sat down by me and I asked if I was completely naked. He said, " yeah pretty much." HOW NICE. Everyone kept saying oh they see this all the time, they're used to it. I was thinking" thats great....too bad I don't." Anyway the surgery started and I didnt even know, but then I started vomiting. I felt bad for Nate because he was the designated puke bowl holder. Anyway i started to feel better and all of a sudden I felt intense and hard pulling and tugging, and it was difficult to breathe. They were having a hard time getting Little Missy out, and my doctor was huffing and puffing and had to have someone else pull. Finally she was out, and she was shown to me. I couldnt decide who she looked like but she was beautiful to me. They took her away and they began to fix me up. It took a long time, but I didn't care. I just laid there and smiled and listened to my baby scream and also listened to the doctors conversation about David Beckham. I think I might have added my 2 cents in here and there. I remember saying he was beautiful. Finally I was done and wheeled back to recovery. Nate was still in the nursery or wherever with the baby, and I was starting to feel pain. Finally he brought me my sweet girl and I was so happy to see her!! I immediately started nursing, didn't go so well but that's ok. We kept trying and finally got a latch. The rest is boring, so I'll spare you. She is pretty jaundiced right now and has to be in a bilibed most of the day to break up the bilirubin so she can poop it out. She's such a sweet baby and I love her. here's some pics I took of her today.

overwhemingly sad

POSTPARTUM BLUES: Up to 80% of women develop postpartum blues within a few days of delivery and experience symptoms including mood swings, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, lack of concentration, and crying spells. Postpartum blues begin two to three days postpartum, peak at around day 5, and resolve within two weeks of onset.

Well I haven't been able to stop crying. Over everything and nothing. Sorry I haven't posted anything but I can't see through my tears. I need a margarita or something. Maybe in 2 weeks when I stop crying I will be able to post. This is not a cry for help--This is totally normal. I just wanted y'all to know in case you call me or visit me and I cry if you ask how I am or if you can do anything for me.

Somethings wrong with my boobs. For some reason I am not producing enough to keep my piglet happy. I am on fenugreek and mothers milk tea, nursing and pumping 24/7. My nipples are bloody and raw and we have checked out our latch is correct. I am upset that I am unable to do this, as I've never had a problem before. It just really bugs me. And yes, I am drinking a ton of water. If you know of something OTHER than what I've just stated let me know. I'll do anything. Just don't call and ask how I am. Or if there's anything you can do for me, because I WILL cry.

Oh and Hailey has to be in the bili bed for jaundice and she hates it. Cries and cries. I cry and cry too. This is so much fun.
