Hard to believe...

that my little boy is five months old! Boy how time flies in this sleep deprivation world that we call life. Teddy has been eating cereal for about a month and we decided to introduce "real" food last night and tried squash. OMG! He devoured that squash like it was nobody's business!

The housing situation is still in a holding pattern. We finally got our delinquency notice for the "first" missed payment. They are going to charge us $20 and report us to the credit bureau. Hmmmm... They are going to be reporting a lot more than that.

Please don't think that I don't care, I really do but at this point, I just want this whole process over with.

Things have been a little hectic around here but I will try to do the bullet post update!
  1. No news on the house yet. I usually pay 15-30 days in advance so they won't be missing our payment until about now. Don't expect to get a word from them for another 15 days or so.

  2. I started W.W. at the beginning of the year. I can't get my band tightened to much without it affecting my breast milk supply. So in an attempt to keep the weight from going on, I am trying this with my MIL. The first week I lost 3.2lbs and nothing last week. Meeting is tomorrow so hopefully the scale will go back down.

  3. Not sure if I told you this but teddy will have to be circumsized when he reaches 6 months old to prevent UTI's with his VUR. They were also going to repair his hydrocele, however, as of last night, it appears to have fixed itself! Fingers crossed because that was going to be a longer recovery time!

  4. We are in the process of getting Teddy's baptism setup. I am kinda ashamed that it has taken this long but at least we are getting it done.

  5. I am getting a promotion at work which is very cool. Still not sure what I will be doing but just waiting for the big wigs boss to sign off on it. They were in Hawaii for a sales meeting (nice right!) so I am hoping it will happen this week.

  6. I have made it (almost) to five months pumping. Hard to beleive. There are still days that I want to give up but the thought of paying for formula makes me ill, so I percervere. It helps that Teddy is now eating cereal very well twice a day.

I think that's it for us. I will leave you with a few pictures from his photo shoot this weekend!

I have lost my husband....

to a stupid game. I am sure you can all guess but just in case you can't.... Bl.ac.k O.ps... Ugh, thank goodness he at least waits until after dinner and Teddy is in bed but still. I walk out of the nursery and I get, "I am going to play my game." Should I demand that he pay attention to me? Should I demand that he do something around the house? Should I demand that he start to help me pack?

Whenever I go to bed, I always say "I love you" and "Don't stay up too late." and I get, just going to play one more game. Two hours later, he still hasn't come to bed. I was exhausted last night and asked him to do my pumping dishes which he said that he would. Got up this morning at 4:30a like normal and there were my dirty dishes.

I wanted to go get him up and yell at him. Instead I did the "mature" thing and made a lot of noise as I was getting ready in the same room that he was sleeping. (Okay not so "mature" but it was more mature than getting him up.)

Do any of you lose your husband to something like this?

A little Better

I feel a little better and not so "depressed" after "coming out" of the foreclosure closet. This was by all means not an easy decision for us to make. We are both in our mid-thirities and in a few short months will not have a home to show for it. However, we will have a roof over our head, a beautiful son and our little family will be together. After that what could a girl ask for.

In the meantime, I have started back to We.ight Wa.tchers to help the weightloss. I had gastric banding surgery three years ago and it was instrumental in helping me lose weight. With breastfeeding however, if I have to much restriction, my supply tanks and I really don't want Teddy to have formula. So, in combination with the lapband, I figured that getting back to a program will help me relearn good eating habits and hopefully get some of this weight back off.

Missing in Action

Hi all! I still check on you daily just a little hard to post right now. The last month has been crazy. We found out Teddy has VUR (Urine Reflux) and that caused a UTI which caused a very high fever. They think he will grow out of it but he has to be on daily antibiotics to help prevent UTI's. We have all been fighting colds in amongst the holidays along with the death of SA's grandmother and mine being diagnosed with Colan Cancer and having surgery. Things have somewhat settled down for us to realize other than having our mobile home foreclosed on, there is no way out for us. It needs about $7-10K worth of repairs that popped up over the last couple of weeks and we would already be taking at $7K loss on the house and we just can't afford to do it. This means that we are going to voluntarily give up our home and move in with SA's parents until they retire and then we can rent their home from them. I am not excited about this prospect because we have worked so hard but at some point we are going to have throw in the towel. SA found mold behind the water heater and with a "sick" as Teddy has been, neither one of us are willing to risk his health for our financial betterness. I am very sad and on the verge of depression at this point but trying to keep my head up. We have each other and our beautiful son, it doesn't matter where we live as long as our little family is together.
