Long Day...

Sunday, February 28, 2010

It's been a long day. Heck, it's been a long weekend!

Maya's gums are making her quite the irritated peanut! I was out at 11pm on Friday getting some baby orajel, of which I'm not a fan, but nothing was working. By the time I got home, tubes in tow, she had passed out on Peter's chest and, amazingly slept all night. But, right now, she is "talking" up a storm and telling us how pissed off she is.

In happier (and mama-crying) news, Maya took her first supported steps on Saturday. We were in our home library, having some play time, and Peter was holding Bobby. I was holding Maya, who was supporting her own weight (with me there just for balance) and she decided she wanted her brother. So she took 3 steps before her little knees buckled. Wow. They will be 6 months old in 10 days and it just hit me at that moment how big they are getting. And, of course, I cried.
We had a busy weekend, full of a party (yesterday) and company today. Sarah, who moved into a condo in December, had a housewarming/divorce/Sarah2.0 party. The kids seemed to love it too, and eventually took a nightnight on Aunt Sarah's bed with mommy. Today, some friends of my inlaws came to visit the babies. I got to play in the kitchen and it was a good time. But I am crashed. I am so ready for a nap!

I've got a lot on my mind these days and will write about it soon... When there is more time than I have at the moment...

Have you used Hyland's Teething Tablets? They are homeopathic and really seemed to help Will with teething.

I hope everything is okay and will look forward to hearing about it when you have time.

Thanks for the hugs!!!

I know i say this alot, but oh my how quickly they are growing. I can't believe that six month mark is here, I feel like it was just yesterday that you shared your wonderful news of their arrival. I hope Maya feels relief from teething soon.

I hope Maya feels better soon, I saw an ad at babiesrus.com for a teething thing that resembled a po-sicle and thought I would add it to my registry , seemed like it migh be different than the traditional teethers, not sure if it is better but thought I would mention it to ya, I used to freeze wet washcloths for my niece and let ehr chew on them. Sometimes it helped other days it seemed like nothing was going to work to soothe her.

Sorry about the teeth. Does sound like a busy weekend. I remember those day, enjoy! As you can see time fly when things are wonderful.

AKD said...

I would have bawled at those steps - what a gift! :) I hope that she gets to feeling better soon, though!

Wow Maya! Time has really flown past. I can't believe that she is taking her first little steps.

Hope her teeth stop paining her soon. I also succumbed to the UK equivalent of orajel, it just looks too sore not to!

I was listening to Brad Paisley (country) today and one of my favorite songs came on ... It always gets me thinking of Anthony .. but, today, for some reason... you and your babies (and how you say it always rains or snows on their angelversaries) popped in my head.
I was gonna email you but my comp is lame and I dont have a program that can associate with your email link ...

so here it is here ...
The song is called "Raining you"...

When I looked out today* And saw that the sky was gray* I thought about the way * You loved days like this ** And driving into town * It really started comine down * Bringing me back around * To all that I miss *

* It feels like it's raining you * It feels like its rainin you *

* I didnt even run inside * Or worry about staying dry * Besides theres nowhere I can hide * These feeliing now** Running down my face * Takes me to another place * I cant think of anohter way to drown *

* It feels like its rainin you * I cant explain it * But I am baptized anew * It feels like its rainin you ** &, If I had my way * It would do the this every day * I would never see the sun * Because the closest I get * To holding you again * is ever time that sky opens up *

* It feels like its rainin you * I cant explain it * But I am baptized anew* It feels like its rainin you * It feels like its rainin you **

if you havent heard it .. you should. its a beautiful song!

Hi Michele,
Thank you so much for reaching out and finding my blogs. I look forward to getting to know you and am happy to say I live in Bucks County so we are probably close by. I am so happy to see your earthly babies and pray for your heavenly angel babies as well.. Hugs, Nan xo

+1 on Hylands teething tablets. They never worked for my son, but lots of mamas I know absolutely love them. Good luck, teething stinks!

Oh, and to comment on your last post, I just love how you talk about all your children when people ask about your twins. Like you said, it makes the world friendlier for parents who have lost babies.

Go Maya!

I hope whatever is on your mind is not weighing too heavily.
