So when are you having baby number two???

I don’t know how many of your who read my blog have ever had problems with infertility but this question is probably one of the most awkward/painful questions to answer.  I know that people who ask this don’t mean to be hurtful.  I must admit that there are times that I see pregnant women and wonder if I will ever feel the kicks and movements of another baby.  I wonder if I will ever have another birth story to tell.  After I had Judah, the thought of never having the chance to get pregnant again made me sad.  Now I realize that I am so blessed.  I understand that there are many families out there that will never experience what David and I have experienced.

There are so many women that go through IVF over and over again.  To you, I tip my hat.  I don’t know if I could survive going through shots, hormones, and anticipation again.  The plan???  Well what we are praying for it to be able to adopt when Judah is about 3 years old.  Perhaps a little sister for Judah.

I don’t know what God has in store for us.  All we can do is trust that one day our little family will grow however that may be.

Baby Food

I am happy to say that Judah has loved just about everything that I have given him.  Long before he was born i made the decision to make his food.  So far it has been great.  With him eating more solid food now we have saved a lot of money.  Today for example I found frozen mixed veggies on sale for 89 cents a bag.  I bought one bag and had some brown rice left over from the other day.  I steamed it all and blended it….and whala I got 10 jars of mixed veggie and brown rice.  We will see tomorrow how he likes it.

If you have ever thought about doing this I highly recommend it.  It’s really easy and I know everything that is going into Judah’s food.  It only takes a few minutes and you can easily make it while cooking dinner.

David laughs at me because i get excited when I find fruits and veggies on sale.  Last week I found a 3lb bag of pears for a dollar.  A dollar yall!  I bought two bags and it made 22 containers of pears.  $2.

Try it.  You just might like it.

Friday

So get ready people Judah is ready to talk… why is my baby growing so fast??  This morning Judah woke up this morning for his feeding at 6 am.  I guess those hunger pangs were really getting to him.  Well anyway, after I fed him this morning I laid him back down and went back to bed for a few more moments of sleep.

I laid back down and through the baby monitor I here.  DA-DA….DA-DA.  I don’t know if it was by accident or intentional but it woke up daddy.  He rolled over half asleep and asked..”did i just hear him say da-da?”  Okay daddy you can have that, he said da-da before ma-ma.  🙂

8 months old

Dear Judah.
I can’t belive that you are 8 months old already.  I was cleaning out your closet the other day and I ran across some of your preemie clothes.  Its crazy to see just how much you have grown in the few months that you have been home.  I want you to know that I love you more than words can describe.  You have changed my life.  
There is nothing like walking into your room and seeing you sleep so peacefully.  This morning at 6:30  you woke up crying.  I fed and burped you and tried to lay you back down but you were not having that.  So I sat in the chair in your room with you and hummed twinkle twinkle little star into your ear and you just layed there in my arms with your little hand on my cheek until you fell back to sleep.
I thank God everyday for letting me be your mommy.  I love you to the moon and back.  
Love,
                                                                               Mommy
