Strike a pose

It's been awhile since my last post. Honestly after that whole thing with Elijah, anything I would write about Jayden crawling or standing all seemed so trivial. Elijah lived for about 12 hours, and then passed away peacefully.

As far as my little monkey goes, there has been a lot going on. She is starting to crawl. She is still in the beginning stages, but she is constantly getting that belly off the ground. Another big milestone happening right now is Jayden pulling to stand. She's only done it once, but she tries all the time.

Mommy has had some changes of her own as well. I have lost 12 pounds, only 4 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. I am going back to work on June 1st. I will be doing leasing again. And my doctor has given me the ok to get off my postpartum depression medication, and I have. By the way if your doctor tells you to take a half a pill for a week before you go cold turkey, listen to them. I decided 4 days was enough, cause I am such an expert, and I am regretting it hard core. I am so dizzy all the time. You know how when you are laying down and you get up too fast and get dizzy? That is how I feel all the time, it is terrible.

Other than my drug withdrawals =) I have been feeling great! Every night when I lay down to go to bed I feel so full of love. Every time I think that I could not possibly love J more than I already do, she gives me a hug, or a gummy smile and I realize that for the rest of my life, every time I think I love her as much as possible, I will love her more. She is almost 7 months, and is such a happy and healthy baby. On the days that Jeremy works, every time the garage door opens she perks up and looks at the door until she sees him come in. She is such a Daddy's girl, and it does not make me jealous, it just makes me happy.

Here is my baby striking a pose
