We are moving!

No, not from our house... :) gotcha! I bet my mom just had a heart attack! Haha! Sorry Mom!

I've decided to leave my blogspot address behind for my own domain.  This will be my last post here, but the blog will still exist.  Also, all of my posts are also on the new blog.  It isn't set up exactly the way I want it, but I'm anxious to make this change. 

 You can find the new blog address HERE.  

Hope you follow me on over there!  A blog address change isn't the only big change going on in our lives.  I'll be sharing very soon over at the new blog- don't miss it!

How is my baby 6 months old?!

Time flies..

I've spent the last few months trying (and failing) to stay sane.  Not gonna lie, I'm a lump on a log (or you know, a couch).  I'm just overwhelmed with appointments and sickness (thank you, preschool, for that).

6 month old
First, Halle is doing well.  She still has issues but we are moving forward in the hopes that she will outgrow them.  She still takes reflux medication and we have also added milk of magnesia daily because, ironically, she gets constipated now instead of having diarrhea all the time.  She's still on the Elecare, but we are pretty certain she has a slight allergy to something in it because she always has a rash on her chest, back, and neck.  She goes to have allergy testing done next month before we venture any further into the land of solid foods, because we had some allergic reactions.  She's 18 lbs give or take, and 27" long.  She's a really happy baby 99 percent of the time.  Super easy going, unlike big brother!

Preschool toddler
Speaking of big brother, Dawson is doing pretty great with preschool.  He's learning slowly to control his actions and we are really pleased with his progress.  He's still a potty nightmare, but I figure that will come with time.  He loves Halle to itty bitty pieces and watching the two of them interact is priceless.  Dawson is 43" tall and 41 lbs.  I can't believe how much he has grown just in the last year.. But I also can't believe I can say I have a 4 year old.  He drives me absolutely nuts but makes me smile and laugh regularly too! 

As for me?  Well, I'm hanging in here.  I think right now I'm just going through the motions.  I got a new psychiatrist and started a new medication, but I don't think it's done a lot for my depression yet.  I was on zoloft, but it wasn't helping at all.  My anxiety seemed (seems, let's be honest) worse than ever.  My insomnia is back as well.  Part of the problem, I'm aware, is that I'm not getting any exercise.  That was my main stress and anxiety buster before I got pregnant with Halle.  I haven't been up to any of that because little miss Halle did some damage to my nerves upon her exit and walking/running isn't possible right now except when I need to.  However, I'm in physical therapy trying to resolve that.  See what I mean with all the appointments?  Between myself, Halle, and Dawson, it's hard to keep up! 

But I'll be back to blogging regularly very soon.. I have a big life change I'm going to be making and I'll want to share.  Stay tuned!
