Busy busy

Evangeline is nearing 4 months old..wow, she is keeping me busy. She likes to be busy, and I am trying to get myself out of the house more as it get’s warmer, to change it up some, and to get my butt off the couch. I am around but mostly just reading everyone else posts cause I don’t have the brain power or time to put into writing everything I wish I could say.  She is just growing and growing,very  long and lean still, I think that will be her way, she is in size 3-6 months exclusively now.  Nursing has been wonderful, I was blessed that it came so easily to us both and has continued being wonderful and easy. We are also really enjoying our cloth diapering experience and figuring out what we like and dislike.  I want to do another whole post about diaper reviews soon.

I love being her mom, sometimes I think I am way to sensitive for this job, I feel soooo deeply, and the intensity of the love completely overwhelms me at times and I just cry on her beautiful head, cause I can’t believe she is all mine and I feel panicked alot with making any decisions cause I am so afraid to make the wrong one and cause her harm. I am all over the place with so many parenting decisions, sleeping, establishing a routine and daily schedules, I have come to the conclusion I just have to go with my gut, I am really learning her, and her own personal needs and figuring out how to incorporate our family needs into hers and keep everything balanced.
I am especially anxious via the vaccine debate, but I doing lots and lots of research and on that front, and have been shocked to find out Canada’s Vaccine schedule is like half the length of the US one?? We are like attached, many states sharing the same climate and illness as us so I don’t understand that one. I was so impressed to see that our full vaccine schedule looks mostly like Dr.  Sear’s alternative schedule.

Anyhow, I know I am biased, but seriously, my child is stunning, and just keeps getting prettier and prettier everyday, she is such a dainty and feminine little girl, and her smile is a smile to melt all hearts. So now, photos πŸ™‚

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ I share your love of hot pink and brown. We have several outfits that combine those colours. Here you can see E.’s brown and polka dotted Babylegs, and yes I know stripes and polka dots are a fashion faux pas but we are rebels breaking all the rules πŸ™‚

  7. The only person who can decide about vaxing is you and your hubby. Things here are nothing like what they are in the States.

    She’s very cute! Long and lean like my first!

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ hubby is relying on me to do the research and fill him in. He was pro vaccine but has since met people who swear their childs developmental delays are tied into the MMR vaccine that he is really re-thinking things. We did do our first round of DaPT so far at 4 months old that is all she has had.

      • While I do have my reservations about the MMR vaccine, I’ve never read any compelling evidence to suggest that there is a link between the vax and developmental delays. I’ve read a lot of stories, personal experiences of people who blame the shot, but no scientific research to support it. I’m still overall undecided.
        That said, I did choose to vax my first for it. And I will the second I’m sure. Chancing catching one of those sicknesses is just not something I want my kids to deal with.
        My second had a reaction to the DaPT – a lump the size of a tangerine on her thigh, but apparently that still falls within the range of ‘normal’ reactions. :/ Scary stuff!

    With the vaccine thing, I think only YOU and her ped can make that decision. Canadas vaccine schedule is like NOTHING compared to the U.S.

    • Thanks hun :). I had no idea the intensity of the bond that comes with parenthood, I am surprised and humbled, grateful yet all the more sad realizing all I lost out on with darling boy..the hurt has come back with a new level of intense now that I am realizing all I missed out on with him. Just whoa being a mom is major.
