Post Partum Sitz Baths

Here is an article with recipes and instructions.

Friday, November 9, 2007

This morning my mom called to let me know that my cousin, Adam, passed away. The doctors said he had been suffering from a brain tumor. At the end of October they told his family he had 2 days to 2 weeks left. I had been trying to get out there, but couldn't shake my cold. As he was in ICU they wouldn't let any sick people in.

I'm not sure of the details of his relationship with God, but I pray there is hope of seeing him again...

Adam, we love you and you will be missed!

Please pray for his family, mostly his mother, Wendy. I can't imagine what she's going through...

The Maya Wrap and Us

Karrots didn't quite take to the Maya Wrap until this past week. I'm guessing it has a lot to do with Big Red's sister showing me how it works and working on it with me. Now she's all smiles in it...at least for certain increments at a time. *;o) Thanks Carrie!

Karrots Has a Cold

Please pray for our little one. She's been having a hard time breathing through her phlegm the past two nights. She fussed a lot because of it this morning...

Don't You Just LOVE Little Girl Clothes?!

My girlfriend, Crystal, got us a BUNCH of clothes for Karrots. She works at Babies R Us and decided to raid the clearance rack. Aren't they adorable?!:






This is the back of the last one...

She Cracks Me Up!

At dinner last night, I looked over and saw this:

She seemed to have forgotten what she was doing at times and then once she spotted her hand she remembered. She goes cross eyed trying to put her hand in her mouth. Hilarious!

An Outting

Karrots and I walked to the post office today. I actually dressed her to match so I have to share a picture!:

Isn't she cute?! I decided she's big enough to not use the car seat in the stroller. She may lean a bit, but it works!

Baby Technology


This weekend Karrots got to play in a bouncer with lights and sound at her aunt's house. She loved it. I guess it's that time of battery operated toys giving her amusement!
