*I* love the puffs too. But don''t tell anyone K?

Helen / Friday, February 6 2009 03:27 PM

That is too funny! Gavin did the same thing when Connor started eating puffs. We had to get each of them their own containers...LOL

Alyssa turned 7 months old ...

Wow - it sounds like you have a lot going on! 6 months has sure gone by quickly. Alyssa is adorable and I can''t believe she is already up and ready to crawl! Good luck with the sleeping problem, hopefully she will grow out of it soon. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Kristi / Saturday, December 20 2008 05:19 AM

Big girl!!!! If it''s any consolation, Aiden did the 5:15-5:30 wake up at that age for a few months, then he gradually started getting up later. There was nothing I could do to change it, so I''d go in, have a little nursies, and pray that he''d go back to sleep with me. But he DID grow out of it. Maybe Alyssa won''t follow in Natalie''s footsteps? Maybe??

We have a roller!! ...


Connie / Thursday, November 6 2008 02:07 PM

Good Job! Can you see about making her not grow up so fast? What''s next? Walking?

Lori, Natalie and Alyssa / Friday, August 22 2008 05:01 PM

HAHAHAHA Beth! I go to bed around 10, Cliff is the night own who stays up anyway. He gives her the last bottle then puts her to bed. I get up with her and he gets up with Natalie. He only needs about 5 hours of sleep a night (Crazy man!).

Beth / Friday, August 22 2008 03:13 PM

You consider sleeping from 12-5? What have I gotten myself into? I haven''t seen 12 in forever!! ;)

Meredith / Friday, August 22 2008 12:06 AM

Good luck at your appt tomorrow - we don''t have ours for another week and a half. I am terrified of the shots!! I am glad Alyssa is such a good sleeper for you and the smiles are definitely the best. Let me know if you happen to be around Greenville next week, we are taking our first trip down on Tuesday.

WOW! Alyssa turned 4 ...


Connie Weiss / Sunday, July 20 2008 02:12 PM

That is great! Babies smiles are the best!

I can''t believe that miss ...


Lori / Monday, July 7 2008 12:59 PM

I tried the shield with the lactation consultant but she wasn''t getting any milk with it. She weighed her before and after I tried it and NOTHING! She got a half of an oz drinking straight from me but she just about killed me and it wasn''t nearly enough for the time she was on. BOO HOO! This is killing me!

Lindsay / Monday, July 7 2008 12:00 AM

I second the nipple shield!!! They were a lifesaver... we had to use it for about 3 weeks until he got the hang of it. I would quickly slip it out when he was halfway through feeding to get him used to sucking without it. He eventually got it!

Meredith / Sunday, July 6 2008 07:29 PM

I don''t know if it would help any, but we are also having latch problems. At the hospital they gave me a Medela nipple shield that I use to feed Claire and it works great. It might be worth a try!

SHE IS HERE!!! Alyssa ...


Meredith / Monday, June 23 2008 09:50 PM

Congratulations - she is beautiful! Funny how we ended up in labor at the same time. Keep the pictures coming and I hope you are all doing well.

Aunt Laurie / Monday, June 23 2008 02:53 PM

How CUTE - Just like her mom :)!!! We can''t wait to meet Alyssa in person. Love ya bunches....

Leigh Ann / Sunday, June 22 2008 02:17 AM

She is gorgeous!!! I can''t wait to see her. Congrats! I am so happy for you guys:)

Back from yet another appointment. ...


Leigh Ann / Saturday, June 21 2008 04:21 PM

I can''t believe that baby hasn''t come yet!! Waiting for the call and keeping my fingers crossed that Alyssa comes soon!!!

Connie / Thursday, June 19 2008 11:48 AM

What is going on now. Need an update!

Kerry / Thursday, June 19 2008 01:09 AM

I am waiting and calling and waiting...can''t wait!!!!!

yeah...still here. No sign of ...


Meredith / Tuesday, June 17 2008 11:14 PM

We are thinking about you. Good luck at your doctors appointment tomorrow!

Kristen Faulkner / Tuesday, June 17 2008 12:28 PM

Yeah, I came really close to calling you yesterday just to chat and then figured that everyone and their cousin was doing the same thing to see if you had any signs of Alyssa''s arrival yet. So, if I am wrong- give me a call. :-)

First of all notice I ...


Jamie / Friday, June 13 2008 06:09 PM

Big Hugs Lori! I am 34 weeks pregnant and it''s 107 here and the doctor told me to walk! So I guess at 3 am when I''m not sleeping and it''s about 90 here, I''ll go for a walk! Hope she comes soon so they don'' t have to induce!

Meredith / Thursday, June 12 2008 05:50 PM

You are too funny! It looks like we are both going to be in the same boat! I am surprised they would let you go 2 weeks past your due date before inducing - my doctor said 1 week and that is it. (I am also against being induced!) And I was also given the "gravity helps - make sure you are walking a lot" - but don''t go outside during the middle of the day! We''ll be thinking about you - I guess the race is on! ;-)

Another appointment down. I ...


Meredith / Saturday, June 7 2008 03:02 PM

These appointments are coming and going WAY too quickly! I am still progressing along slowly - no dilation, but 75% effaced! And unless I am completely missing them, no contractions here. Stay cool and relax - keep us updated! I will be looking forward to the news and of course pictures! Is Natalie ready to be a big sister?

I am 37w3d pregnant today. ...


Kristi / Saturday, May 31 2008 01:40 PM

Baby, baby, baby, baby....

There goes another 2 weeks. ...


Meredith / Thursday, May 22 2008 09:17 PM

Only 9 lbs....how did you manage that one? I am jealous! I hope she holds out for you at least through Saturday - enjoy every minute of that massage. And when Alyssa does decide to arrive, I hope everything goes well for you.

Happy Mother''s day to all ...


Connie Weiss / Monday, May 12 2008 01:53 PM

Happy Mother''s Day!!

Ok it has been another ...


Another appointment bites the dust. ...


Lori / Friday, May 2 2008 02:22 AM

I asked at my last appointment and she said that she could feel the head way down low. My stomach also has a different shape now that I have been able to compare my belly shots from this week. You can kind of tell by where you feel the kicks. I can feel her hiney and back on my right side and she kicks on my left. Oddly that is exactly the position Natalie settled in. Even the same side. Weird!

Meredith / Thursday, May 1 2008 07:23 PM

I know how you feel with the appointments coming and going so quickly.....we are coming down the home stretch! Head down , huh? I still can''t make out what body part is what and neither could the doctor last time. Maybe at the next appointment! Hope you are still feeling good!

Kristen Faulkner / Friday, April 25 2008 11:11 AM

Sounds great Lori! Can''t wait to meet her!

Yes I finally remembered to ...

Lori / Tuesday, April 8 2008 04:26 PM

They should call by tomorrow if I failed. I won''t hear from them if I passed. I have been to starbucks about a million times this week just in case. haha

Meredith / Tuesday, April 8 2008 12:20 PM

How did you make out with the 3 hour test?

Lori / Friday, March 28 2008 04:35 PM

They do the finger prick (like you do three times a day when you are diabetic) so you get the numbers instantly. They take blood from the arm 4 times for the 3 hour so I won''t find out for a few days with that one. I am so bummed that I have to go back. FLAH!

Meredith / Friday, March 28 2008 04:10 PM

How do you know so soon that you failed?
