Ashley Now 12 days Old

Ashley is doing well now. She is 12 days old and weighs 6lbs 14oz. She just had to get medicine for thrush but it is finally going away. Her siblings are just in love with her and find her adorable. They just love every little thing she does. Thankfully there are no jealousies. I am glad they've never dealt with that. They always thank me for having little babies, no joke!! LOL! Little stinkers. I tell them to simmer down when they ask when I'm gonna have another one.

 I can't wait for my sis who lives out of the country to come visit us. We all miss her and kids very much and we can't wait for them to see our new bundle. 

 Anyhow, life is calming down more back to normal now that I am not in pain with being pregnant. In fact, today I spent 7 hours cleaning out the garage, it looks beautiful! It feels so great to have my body back and my flexibility. LOL! It feels weird being able to bend over again. The other day as I put my foot up on the bed to tie my shoes, I had to stop and think about why I was able to do that. As I stood there for a second I also realized I could see and paint my toe nails. I was so excited.

WOW you really do look good. I'm so glad for you that jealousy isn't an issue. I had my second child when my first was still tiny, so we never really went through the jealousy thing. We do go through the, "Why can HE do blah and I can't?" and that's more an 'age' thing. No, I'm *not* letting my six-year-old walk to the park alone, but I'll let the 12 and 14-year-old...

Although your children may not have jealousy issues, I do. It's just not right that *some people* look so fabulous after childbirth and *cough* others never lose anything but their minds.

Congrats anyway! ;)
