Thank you so very much!!! I am so unbelievably happy! July 15th made two years since we lost Payton. This time last year, I was very sad on that day. This year, I had an inner peace that I cannot explain. I know he brought her to me and it made me feel so peaceful, even in my grief.

I think she is a good mix of the both of us...actually, her newborn pictures look just like newborn pics of her daddy. She looks more like me now, but she still looks like daddy. Isn't is awesome how babies are little pieces of each of their parents. I love seeing the little things that remind me of each of us, and of her brothers. She is so precious, I just want to carry her with me everywhere I go, literally. :)

I'm glad to hear all is going well and Madison is feeling better. It is kind of sad when you have to stop breastfeeding early but sometimes it is for the best. My DD had bad reflux and needed everything thickened so I had to stop at 3 months. Good luck with adjusting to the new home. I hope you like it there.

Thanks guys!!!! She is doing really, really well. Only one thing I am sad about, I had to switch to formula because she was having a reaction to breastmilk. My son had the same problems, and it took six months of zantax and a lot of problems to finally decide it was an allergy to milk. So, as soon as the same problems started with Madison, I began switching her over. She is free of painful gas now, does not have snotty noses, and her bm's do not result in horrific diaper rash. It makes me sad, because I love breastfeeding. But, I know she is happier now. Other than that, all is wonderful! She is
S-P-O-I-L-E-D!!!! How can she not be though, really? :)

I got a new computer and I am having problems loading my camera onto it, as soon as I figure it out, I will post new pictures!

Hi Mandy, it's so nice to see you back! :-) I was just wondering the other day how you and baby Madison are. I'm glad you haven't disappeared completely!
PS Do you have a pic of Madison smiling - would love to see her again! If you'd like to share ...

Mandy - pleased to meet yet another women who's had similar experiences to myself. Lost Annabelle in March 2008 at 26 weeks to HELLP and IUGR. Currently TTC again and will be on lovenox the entire pregnancy, you give me hope!
