Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

Not much to report

Things are quiet around here. Baby Olivia is doing well and I am feeling more and more movement. Maddie is telling everyone that will listen about her sister. She also tries to look into my belly button to see her. LOL She claims that she can actually see her which is cute. My last OB appointment went well. I am still slightly anemic and have to take iron (yuck!!) but my BP was good which is a blessing (I have had issues in the past). I am trying to keep my stress down which is not easy with a 3 year old (Maddie) and my 2 year old terror of a niece. She is quite the handful. I am trying to decide when to stop watching her. As I listen to the two of them fight and scream I think that this week is a good week to stop. I love the child but she is aggressive and Maddie is passive and the fighting gets old very quickly.

We are ready for Christmas around here. The tree is up and we have most of Maddie's gifts purchased. She is super excited for Santa this year which is fun. We are also doing Elf on the Shelf but she is not as interested in that this year. After so many sad Christmases I must say, it is nice to enjoy them again. Not that Christmas is just for kids, but the sadness of infertility doesn't overshadow it like it used to.
