WW: Announced.

I apologize in advance if this post makes your uterus ache for a baby.  You have been warned. ;)

Now that we have our newborn pictures back, I'm so excited to show you the birth announcements that I designed for Reid and {my niece and Reid's birthday twin} Aubrey!  

Let me know what you think... =)  

All announcement photos were taken by Stephanie Glover Photography

And Aubrey's...
 
 I mean... Aubrey's hair.  SO CUTE!  I just adore her sweetness. And that smile??? :::dies:::

In other news, Reid?  He's ONE MONTH OLD!  How is that even possible!?! Here's a picture of my little pumpkin in his 1 month tie ;)
Sigh.  I just adore him.

Overall, things are going so well.  He's a sweet baby and he's a good sleeper, for the most part {however, we've had a few rough nights, as expected.}  Most of our issues stem from breastfeeding, but we both seem to be doing better with it and I'm hoping to make it to my first goal of 6 weeks {1.5 weeks to go!} and that we'll finally be on the other side of this hill. {Please tell me it gets better at 6 weeks.  Pretty please?} My next goal will be 12 weeks and then we'll take it from there.  Hopefully I can make it 6 months, but we'll see.  Baby steps.

In other news, Reid was just diagnosed with reflux {Carter had it too, but we dodged a bullet with Brynn!} and I'm hoping his new meds will help with feedings as well.  Poor baby screams in pain after nursing, even after a change in my diet and some other things we've done to try to avoid medication.  I'm hoping the Zantac helps!

He's really starting to be awake more and I love it!  He's talking and starting to smile when we talk to him.  Carter and Brynn just adore him and are such good little helpers!  Carter is already asking for another baby... a girl.  I told him we could always just steal Aubrey.  He was perfectly fine with that.  Sorry Aunt Kacy!

Those are wonderful announcements. Hope everything goes well with the Zantac. My coworker dealt with the same issue with his daughter at the same age. He said the meds did a wonderful job!

Molly said...

Keep going with the breast feeding. It will get easier and easier until eventually you will realise that giving up will just make life harder again. Bottle feeding can be such a pain.... you need so much stuff whereas now... well all you need is you!!!!

Sara said...

Congratulations! Great job with breastfeeding. And yes, it absolutely gets easier! It's so nice not to have to worry with bottles and to always have milk available for your baby. I think the first 6 weeks are the most challenging so once you hit that it should be more manageable. Good luck!

Gina @ Kleinworth & Co. said...

So adorable!!!! & Oh yes- baby fever for sure.

Jeremy, Censie and Jude said...

Molly said...

So cute! As for breastfeeding I think it should get easier at the 6 week mark. You're doing great mama. I am so impressed by your willingness to try it this time!

cynthia said...

aww, he is a little doll! :) such cute pics. i love how bendy they are. hehe
happy wednesday! thanks for hosting.

Jessica said...

Adorable announcements! Adorable babies!

The breastfeeding turnaround for me has always been 8 weeks. Good luck!

Stephanie said...

They are both so adorable.

As for nursing, I had a TOUGH time and fought through it in the beginning (threatening to quit every day). At 6 weeks, it was like the easiest thing ever and we continued until I wasn't pumping enough at 7 months. It gets so so so much better. Stick with it.

Love them both, Stephanie did a wonderful job with the pictures!

The girls said...

They're such beautiful babies! On another note, they were born on my daughter's (3rd) birthday. Great day.

Six weeks was a breastfeeding turning point for me. Up to that point, I was miserable and in tons of pain. At six weeks (almost exactly), the cuts and cracks finally healed and it got easier. Hang in there.

Paula said...

So cute! Aubrey shares a birthday (different year) with my son. :) Thanks for hosting!
