I had my baby last night! Cecily Elizabeth was 7lbs 11oz 20inches long. She is totally healthy,and has a head full of fuzzy black hair. I will work on getting a picture posted this afternoon. Thank you for all your encouragement and thoughts and prayers--I am so happy to officially have a "large" family!

Jenilope...



I only like football when one team is playing. I just cancelled my sports package lol, Lupan is the only football fan and with him not here I don't see the point of it.

Oh dear. Have you tried flour or powder? Then vinegar? Then soap? Don't use water. It will just repel it.

Congrats jenilope! Beautiful name. You sound put together! I hope it was a fun birth.

You are next um. I'm sure of it.

Congrats on the baby! You were right about being in labor

Petroleum jelly. Dry cleaning solution, then dawn dish soap. The regular blue dawn.

Jen congrats on ur new baby girl beautiful name. she shares a mn with my eldest dd
um u have to be next, i dont think anyone else is due soon??
star you just have to laugh sometimes at the challenges our dc lay before us that cause us to ask things we never thought we would string together in a sentence. Have you tried dawn dish soap? claims to take grease out of your way...idk about carpet, but certainly can't hurt. good luck.

I'm leaving in a couple of hours for a girls day. Ends with a concert and possibly a bon fire after.... gonna be a long day. Should be a lot of fun though. I am grateful to be invited.

I am next only by default. Now I know how FW felt last year. Oh well, at least two more weeks, she can't stay longer than that. I am doing some cleaning today, feeling bored.

Hope you get the jelly out of the carpet.

per my facebook:
people - I am in awe right now. my bff is getting married in September to the love of her life. although I bought my matron-of-honor gown several months ag, it turned out that I could not financially afford my airline ticket due to my large (read the LARGE) hospital bills. this afternoon my son jared walked into my home, handed me cash to get my dress altered and told me that he was there to purchase my plane ticket via all my kids/husband contributions. they got together and talked to said bff and came up with a plan for me to attend the wedding after all. how blessed am I?

Very Blessed, Terre!! Beautiful story!

Congrats, Jen!! I'm so glad things went well for you. I adore her name! You have the best named girls ever!!

Not much to report here...I got to do my newborn session today. Whew, was that a lot of work. I know why newborn photographers charge so much now! I loved it though and actually did get a couple of poses to look pretty nice but mostly the others looked very amateur.
Leaving for Branson in the morning with dh to celebrate our 10 yr anniversary (Monday). We're going to act like we are young again and do the whole mini golf, go carts, batting cages, and 'Steal Your Dollar' City (aka Silver Dollar City, amusement park) like we used to do when we were first together. $20 says I puke on the roller coasters, lol!

Hi everyone. I am still preggo.

Getting ready for Zay's bday party tomorrow. I have to go pick up his cake, get some groceries, buy some wrapping paper and find some TMNT rings for his cupcakes. DH has a full day of haircuts lined up already, so I get to take the lil boys and go run errands myself.

Crapulent night last night. #9 got up, fell out of bed, cried, played laughed all at 2:30am. Instead of putting her back, the teens humored her and then when they were tired of that, they brought her to me. Then they turned on lights and knocked into baskets and then I heard water running! Turns out 2 stepped in dog poop! Why was there dog poop?

I am in a foul cranky mood this morning. My kids would rather be with um.

I don't expect my mood is much better. Sorry you had a bad night.

I do wish I had a bigger kid here today to entertain Canaan.

Mom26th--Sounds fun, its always nice to go back to that 'place' that sparked it all!!

UM --you are so busy I dont know how you can do it!! kuddos!!

FW--hope it turns around for you !!

Anyone of you experience alot of PP bleeding and returned high BP after delivering? How do you know whats normal and whats not? Im not sure but I thought I had my period at about 2 weeks after delivering and now last night at 4am ( sorry TMI ahead ) but dark red blood was just pouring out of me. and when I sit on the toilet. its still coming but stops for bit then comes right back. I guess I should call my Ob but I just HATE going out with baby and I just dont want to go in there!!

anyone experience this and it was " normal " ??
(sorry if this topic doesnt belong here. I did post it in my DDC but its super slow there and also I thought theres alot more experience here. )

amira -- I don't know if that is normal or not but I personally would say to at least call your doctor and ask. as for whether to post it here - why not? that's what we do here --- talk about everything!!!!
