Can you believe it???

Another updated blog post! Holy Cow! I can't believe it myself, and yes it is me updating, I didn't hire someone to do so! We went to Autumn's 2 month check up today and she now weighs 12 lb. 5 oz. (85%) and is 23 in. long (75%). We got a little chunker on our hands! She is nice and healthy! We got the go ahead for her to start sleeping on her belly which she is doing for the first time by herself right now taking a nap and I have to say, it is the greatest thing EVER!!! We have started putting her down awake and making her put herself to sleep for naps and there was great screaming throughout the house for a few minutes and she would wake up every now and then crying, but now on her belly...I put her down and she was out in 2 minutes flat with little fussing cause she wasn't use to being on her belly and I haven't heard a peep in 2 hours!!! Tonight will be our first night to take the very last feeding away and put her down earlier and have her sleep through the night without us going in there til morning. Wish us luck!!! She is actually a really good sleeper so (knock on wood) I hope it isn't a bad transitioning night. Well, hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time...

Well, I met with the dr. and surgery is set for Nov. 6. She can do it laproscopically (sp?) which is good, but the only risk is that since it is so big, she said if she can't see a certain portion of my ovary tissue that she will have to take my ovary as well. So we are praying that she can see what she needs to and only has to take the cyst. She said the cyst does look simple by the pictures, nothing to be suspicious of (cancerous) which is great news! So now, it's time to store up as much milk as I can since I have to do the most depressing thing...pump and dump.

God is keeping it interesting!

Just a quick update, God is keeping us on our toes and doesn't want things to get boring around here. I went to the doctor today for a final ultrasound to see about my cyst that they had found on my ovary at the beginning of the pregnancy to see if it had shrunk. Well the results were that it actually got bigger and is now 6.7 cm big and now I have to have surgery. The ultrasound tech said the cyst wasn't simple, but not complex, somewhere in the middle (whatever that means!!) I don't know the date yet, I have to meet with the doctor next week to talk about everything. So please keep us in your prayers and I will keep everyone updated! Love to all! Until next time...

We are still alive, I promise!

Hello to my long lost blogging buddies! Sorry I have been away for 2 months now. As of right now I have a little time to update with some pictures until my little one decides to wake up, which seems like she always has the most perfect timing!! To all of you moms out there with new babies and can still update once a day or even once a week, my hat off to you!!! So, quick update, everything is going great! Autumn is now 11 lb, 2 oz as of this last week when I took her to the dr. She is 7 weeks old today! Yes, that does mean she has gained pretty close to 1 lb a week. (uh oh, I hear noises, go back to sleep!) She has been congested for the past couple of weeks, but Dr. Stephens thinks she is ok, just gave us some nasal spray to drip in her nose to help clear it up. And to let everyone know, we are staying pretty low right now, that is why you have not seen us at church because the flu has gotten so bad and with her congested, we don't want to risk getting around a lot of people. So since we are not out and about a whole lot, here are a few pics of our little chunk!!
