    No worries, we didn't have a good family pic until DD was close to a year old! Have a good week and kup on your little lady when ever you can.

    today we'll be heading in for her 2 week check up. I can tell that she's gained weight and I can't wait to hear how much.

    As for me, I'm starting to worry that my ptsd is starting to emerge again. For me it starts with mirrors, esp at night. Well I had taken out Logan's mirror from his closet and had forgotten to put it back and when I got up to soothe him back to sleep last night I looked at it and started getting anxious. Thankfully I didn't "see" anything, but I thought I was going to. I was going to crawl from his room in case he was still awake, but I had stupidly watched the bloody mary episode on supernatural and just couldn't do it, so I risked the walk out which was fine since he was sleeping. On a tangent, I really hated it when the docs asked me why I had ptsd, I mean talking does not always help, once its effecting me though it helps a lot. Suffice it to say it was a lot of little things in my past. For a while I thought I was a schizophrenic, but no. It was nice to finally get a diagnosis though. I honestly thought I was going crazy for a while. Probably one of the reasons I love psychology so much. Anyway, at church the other day I had told DH I was willing to hang the mirrors now since I felt good still, but after last night I'm not so sure, though I as planning on putting them behind the bedroom doors so that the only way to see them would be to shut the door. We'll see.

    While we're at the hospital today we have to go get copies of Rya's info to get her into insurance and other things. We apparently forgot them in our recovery room and the cleaning ladies just threw everything out instead of turning things in, like her meds too! Uggh. At least getting copies should be pretty easy. I also need to ask to see if I need a 2 week pp visit or just a 6 week. I would like one now just to get a incision update, esp since the strips are still on and I'm pretty sure they should have been taken off before discharge. I could be wrong though.

    And today is DH's last day at home and my last day of having it easy. I've already started doing most things as usual, like laundry and dishes, the only thing left is driving, which I start tomorrow.

    And last but not least, my family is finally coming to visit us for the first time in my married life and I'm so excited/nervous. I can't wait to show them our life, but I'm also afraid that they'll trample over it. My MIL is very respectful of us and just lets things go, but I'm not sure about my mom or dad. I do need to get my house back in order, again, but that shouldn't be too hard, I hope.

    Well, I guess its about time to get my day started.

    Sorry to hear about the ptsd symptoms. I hope it doesn't come back again.

    I'm excited to hear how much weight Rya has gained.

    Good luck with your family coming to visit. I hope that goes well.

    so far so good today. We'll have to see how pickup goes, but right now I'm not anticipating any problems. Great news for me and my sleep, DH's workout time for the military got moved from 6:30am to 7! that means at least 30 mins more sleep.
    On anther positive note, Rya's appt went well at the docs. She's 7lbs 8oz, 19.14ins and her stomach is measuring about 1.5cms ahead of her head. I made them measure it so we could keep track of the growth rate at the very least. Doc said she checked out fine too. Then we had a WIC appt right after that (which I had forgotten about thank goodness for cell phone calendar reminders ) and I was told by the WIC guy to get her tongue clipped to help with bfing. I admit I forgot to bring it up at her doc appt since I wanted more info on her kidney than anything. Guess I'll be calling in for a consult. I don't want to clip her tongue if I don't have to, I think being tongue tied is a natural thing and though it may hurt a little more I'm sure we can work past it. Right now the only real issue is her biting my nipple. The WIC guy thinks she's doing it since she can't get my boob in further and my nipple comes out flat. I honestly don't mind the biting too much right now, I'm more worried about it for when she gets teeth. I don't need her to bite anything off so any help in getting her to quit biting would be great. I think I'm going to have to just take her off immediately for biting. I hadn't yet cause she has such a hard time getting on, and normally once she's stopped she's done. Heres hoping it'll work out ok though. well off to pick up DS. Mmmm, I'm getting hungery, not good. Guess I'll avoid the highway that has food on the access roads

    I'm glad to hear all is well with Rya. I hope your able to get a handle on the ptsd, that sounds ruff. KUP on the tounge issue, I'm curious to see what needs to be done if anything. Did you get a 2 week follow up? I thought that was standard!

    so far we're ok. I'm a little more jumpy at night than I'd like but images are staying away, barely. I'll talk to my doc about it next time I go in. For some reason I was really stupid and watched some supernatural episodes, though I ask DH if they are scary first. bad me.

    Rya has a really red butt from the wipes we have so we are now officially moving to cloth wipes. Its something I've been meaning to do and now have to because both kids need it right now. And she got her first bath today, dang it, I forgot to take pics of it However I do have a few new pics of her that I'll upload when I can.

    I can't watch Supernatural...too scary for me. I watched one and it scared me so much I've never watched it again.

    Hope the cloth wipes help with Rya.
