Amber teething necklaces are totally different though, it's a necklace with baltic amber beads, the baby just wears it and their body heats makes the amber give off this acid that's a natural pain reliever.. keeps the baby from drooling and fussing.

Awww Madison is soooo cute and big :) lol Layla n that huge flower! Adorable! On phone cant see ur aaron's pics. ill look later on the laptop :) This past Sunday I was contacted by a new photographer for a free session n free pics to encourage and bring awareness to bfing. I can't wait to see the pics!! Aaron was a pro while she snapped away. Anyone else EBFing? Had 1 period while on bc, then have no more periods? I took a hpt just to be sure esp w all my mood swings n crying spells. It was negative. Still freaks me out having no periods. We're down to just the van hubby sold his jag (tg). I've rehomed a few of my animals to get another hedgie and laying hens. Since I'm sahm I'm trying to make a little extra to help out. Most days I feel useless. Been down a lot lately. Thinking hard about the m/c. Jan they'd have been turning 1. Aaron is crawling :( started this weekend. Backwards first then he rocks to propel himself forward. He rolls over and has been rolling like hes going down a hill. His 3-6 month stuff is too tight around his arms that the material cuts into his skin, and I can't snap his onesies shut bc he's too long. Halloween we're going as old macdonald, farmers wife, Aaron- duck, liv- cow, dd1- dog. What is your family doing? Hope all are well!!!

Hahah, yeah the flowers are huge but they're so adorable I couldn't resist. She doesn't seem to mind them. :D SO just about lost his mind when I put it on her lmao he loves dressing her up more than I do. Anytime we go anywhere he's like, "PUT THE PRETTY DRESS ON HER WITH THE RUFFLES!!" Baahahahahah. And I think I may have gotten a period last month.. it was hard to tell because I hadn't been PP bleeding for a while, then I started bleeding a little for like three days, then it went away. I felt crampy, was craving junk food (usual period symptoms) but it didn't last as long as they normally do. I've never been on this BC before though so that could be why. I want to switch to my old BC because the one I'm on now is the mini-pill, but I'm not breastfeeding anymore so I want to switch back to my old one (I loved it and never had any pregnancy scares). I've been debating taking a test just to be sure though because I'm not certain that was a period, and if I'm not breastfeeding.. shouldn't I have gotten one by now? God, it'd be awful if I were prego again.. I really don't think I am, but I'm crazy paranoid. :lol:



And I have no idea what we're doing for Halloween. My sister is only six, so usually we walk around with her on Halloween. We'll probably end up doing that this year and dressing Layla up.. I just have no idea what to dress her as. Should we go around asking for candy? Clearly she won't eat any of it lol but me and SO sure will. Maybe I'll be nice and share some with my sister if we do. :P

Lol @ ur SOs reaction to dressing Layla up. That's so sweet!!! I can't be on the combo bc pills I just stick to the mini but yea if ur not bfing or pumping I say switch if ur more comfy on that kind. Sounds like a pd though. My cycles are whack since Aaron anymore. I get crampy and bitchy then nothing so I think I pms without the bleeding part. I'm similar- paranoid to get pg again. I still make him use condoms bc "what if" the pill doesn't work right just one time!? We don't have sex when I think I have fertile CM either. I'd like more kids, but after Aaron's ptl scares and quick l&d, and tearing issues.., ummm I'm not sure if I wanna go through it again. Heck yeah take Layla to get candy!!!!! Most ppl realize you'll be the ones eating it but are happy to have lil ones trick or treating. We take ours to community complex or state park Camp sites. Cc has activities foods bounce houses while in line to get candy (trunk or treat) outta volunteers trunks. They decorate n all. I can see Layla being a flower :)

Awe Layla is so freakin cute! And Carissa- Aaron is quite handsome as well!! Kirsten can't wait to see the professional pics! Your little man is so photogenic!



Madison loves her carrier. Both times I've put her in it she passes right out! Lol
I don't know if y'all I've tried teething tablets thr melt in their mouth but my first couldn't go with put them! Madison seems to do okay with them as we'll I only use 1 every 2-3 hours and its instant relief.



Also with the periods, I haven't had one yet!! And I KNOW I'm not pregnamnt because we just had sex for the first time yesterday and I made sure he wore a condom. I'm scared to take any bc just yet because I'm afraid of messing with my milk supply. I believe that's why I dried up at 6 months with Lexi and I'm going to try to make it at least a year with Madison.

I use the teething tablets too he loves them. Dd2 will drop what she's doing when I shake the bottle. She did that soon as I gave them to her when she was little. Whoa no sex til now?! Holy restraint woman!!! Hubby would've killed me if I made him wait any longer than I did. How did u manage that one? I wanna know ur secret or trick! Ugh hubby is like a dog and somedays (most days) I feel like the leg he's gotta hump... Oh wait, he does hump my leg :p the weirdo.
OT but I was outside trying to catch my rabbit and heard this loud grunt noise 2 ft away low to the ground. Scared the bajeezus outta me. I guess it could've been a wild boar but I didn't stick around to find out!

Lol it wasn't easy!! Pretty much just said no. Plus I'm really fertil and I'm scared to death to get prego again so soon. I demanded he wear condoms and I know he hated them so that worked for a while!
Omg I prob would have died if I heard something growling at me!! I have a fenced in back yard and it still freakes me out to go out by myself late on the evening..

Aww!! I love all the pics ladies! I love the photo Carmen of you and Layla because I can see where she gets her beautiful eyes from. I also love seeing Madison and how mature she is, I can't wait for Claire to catch up! And Aaron is so sweet, he's so ahead of the game in rolling, I have yet to get Claire to do that. Is he pushing up on his arms yet? I hope she's not falling behind. It's amazing how quickly they grow, how long is everyone's babies now? Claire will be 3 months this Saturday, she holds her head up when I carry her on my shoulder but she still has yet to master the push up during tummy time. I don't really force her to do it as much as I probably should. She gets pretty bored in her activity gym and only seems to like facial interaction. She loves to talk to her daddy, I need to upload that sound clip on here, but she has yet to fully talk all the time. Took her to BF clinic and she weighs 11 pounds and 11.4 oz right now. She is teething too, NP says she has two pearls? but probably wont break through till 6 months. She drools like crazy and gnaws on her binky on her teething side. She is pretty smiley most of the time and gives me a little laugh when I bring out the booby because she's so happy and eager to eat. It's too darn funny.



Pic time!



Was undressing her and reminded me of Princess Leia-

Here's her just sitting up, finally got shoes that fit her feet.

And last one is just us laying in bed. Sorry it's so pixelated, It was really dark so by "fixing it" I just made it look more grainy..

No and condoms.... Rofl I tried no that didn't work as well for me :p I have also tried the extremely fertile thing and he went out within the hour n bought the condoms so that didn't deter him. Only thing that works is if I say ive been throwing up. I've tried headaches, too tired, and starting a fight. He's like a dog w a bone (... Yeah take that however u wanna). I wish I had a 1/4 of hubby's sex drive. Trust me he could stand to share some! Anyone else have similar? I swear hubby can have it and within 5 mins he's wanting more. He's never satiated. And its worse since the baby! of course i feel like a whale w the pooch n all. He says he's a sex addict but with morals (faithful).

No pics or vids bc well my iPhone storage is full, again lol but yea baby is hard to contain even in his crib he turns around, rolls, crawls all over. He's never in the same spot I put him in anymore. Awww! Interesting the babes are teething so early. My girls didn't get teeth til 1 and 2 yrs old.

It so hard to believe our babies are 3 months old!! Logan is a CHUNK he has almost out grown all his 3-6 month clothes so once again I have to go buy him all new clothes for winter lol. He is rolling over and drooling like crazy so I'm sure teething is in his near future. He is such a good baby except he still doesn't sleep thru the night, but on the bright side he just nurses and goes straight back to sleep. Here is some 3 month pictures!!

Gosh, all you ladies talking about how your babies are three months old.. Miss Layla will be four months old in six days. :shock: She still hasn't rolled over for me. :? I won't believe she actually did it for daddy until she shows me she can do it. :lol: I'm buying an amber teething necklace for her this weekend because the gnawing on the hand and the drooling has gotten crazy lol. She's up to size two diapers and she's wearing 3-6 month clothes although they're still a little baggy on her.. some 0-3 month clothes fit her, they just have to be long (which is funny considering at my WIC appointment they said she's short for her age lol). Also at her WIC appointment, I learned she's just under 15 pounds. :shock: She's definitely a little chunk. She's got her four month checkup next Tuesday, can't wait to see what her doctor has to say. :D
