Update {p,h,f,r} style

So, this post has been sitting in my drafts file for three days now. That's about how life is running right now. First, I want to say thank you to everyone who offered their advice, concern, and prayers after my last lengthy post. The one month mark seems to be a turning point for me. I had a visit with my OB, I took the test for PPD (talk about test anxiety!) and we ruled that out, but thank you again for your thoughtfulness!

I am feeling good. That doesn't mean I don't get crabby or emotional, but those moments seem few and far between. Cupcake is growing like crazy! She weighed 8 pounds when we took her to the pediatrician on Tuesday. That's still smaller than my last three babies at birth, but it's big for her! She is on reflux medicine now as the dietary changes I made didn't seem to help her much. That's only been a few days so we still don't know how much it's going to help. Here's hoping! The worst time for her is right when she wakes up. This sweet, delicate girl wakes up like a wildcat! I'm not sure if that's reflux or temperament. Here's praying it's the former! : )


This is Sean's favorite outfit on her! Dainty little ruffles.

Yeah, it's blurry, but I love her expression!

Trying out her best Alfred Hitchcock impression!

Working on Jimmy Stewart, I think. Maybe James Cagney?

Wildcat! See? Life isn't always pretty!

  1. THANK YOU for the pretty, funny, happy and real photos! We'll take 'em all because hey, that's life, isn't it? Very real with (we hope) lots of pretty & funny & happy on the side.

  2. Glad you're feeling better (somewhat anyway!)

    Love all the photos!!! Thanks for sharing cupcake with us!! Even the wildcat times--they all have those!

  3. Oh she is just a doll!!! Thanks for sharing the sweetness!

  4. Thanks for the update! Life is made up of {pfhr} as Margaret said. Love all the pictures, and I say James Cagney for sure. She is one awesome, versatile Cupcake! (and I'd like to eat her up!) xo

  5. the descriptions of her many faces! Glad to hear things are on the up and up.

  6. the descriptions of her many faces! Glad to hear things are on the up and up.

  7. I LOVE the Hitchcock face! What a cutie!

  8. She's so cute ... and expressive! I love those newborn looks!

  9. beautiful expressions. beautiful girlie!

  10. You are doing a perfect job! We have had 6 wildcat babies. We are expecting a new wildcat in April. This is the first baby that I have come to conclusion that this is a gift we can give to the prolife cause...offering up the wildcat.
    Prayers to you only because I know how I hyperventilate in the hospital realizing everytime I am walking, pacing our room with our newborn that God has yet again asked us to carry the cross of screaming. God Bless.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
