It's been a while since I wrote last been so busy with Cayden and work. About a week ago Cayden started moving in circles and chasing his binky cause he throws it.
He hasn't felt very good today and was very clingy and wanted to nurse all day. I didn't mind it gave us more time to hang out and my milk supply was slowly becoming less and less. Not after today.
I went to mom's group yesterday and we had a lady come in and show us all of the new clothlike diapers. My mom is really trying to get me into them and I really dont think I would mind using them. Anyway I need to get some sleep in case Cayden doesn't feel well again. Talk to everyone soon

Well Cayden is doing very well with his cereal. We have already tried most of the fruits. We just have applesauce and pears left to try. He seems to enjoy bananas and peaches the most so far. He is growing like a weed. He talks a lot more and plays with his toys. He is my little slobber boy that's for sure he thinks it's so funny when he slobbers on me or his dad. The more pictures I take the more photogenic he gets . Well work is going quite well Cayden enjoys spending time with his dad. The ladies I work with absolutely love Cayden. I guess I better get going so I can feed Cayden. Hope all is well

I'm back!!!

Finally got some time to update you guys with some things that have happened.
Well first of all Cayden and I went back up to Portland for his development assesment. He is 26" long and he weighs 14 lbs 10 ounces. We got great news he is doing so well in his development that we don't have to go back up until he is a year old. He is developed in a few things above his age level.
He is sitting up with very little help. He is also already scooting across the floor towards something he wants. Cayden is already cutting teeth and boy has he been cranky. I have been feeding him rice cereal and bananas for about 2 to 3 weeks. Today Cayden and I went to mom's group and we learned baby massages Cayden enjoyed that, then he fell asleep I guess I did it right since he was so relaxed. Cayden is still Breastfeeding very well he is still using the nipple sheild can't feed him without it.
I went back to work this last week I trained on Tuesday and Wednesday and I am working on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am to Noon and then 4 pm to 8pm. Makes it pretty easy with me breastfeeding. I hope everything is going well for all please keep in touch.

Just a update!!!

Hello all sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I really have just been coming to my blog to read on other families journeys with CDH. I want to thank Catherine baby Sofia's mother for reaching out to me.
Recently it has been very hard for me. I need to go to work because we have run out of the money I had saved up for Cayden's arrival. I found it very hard to leave my son after all of the things we have been through he has not left my side since he has been home. I know that isn't a good thing I just don't want to miss a moment that I can spend with him.
The hard thing is I know I need to go to work but anytime I think about it I get anxious cause I know I will have to leave Cayden. I'm trying to gradually leave Cayden with his dad for a few hours or so a week and that is even hard for me. At this point I don't know if I will ever be able to get a job.
I don't even know if I would be able to do it even if Cayden didn't have CDH. I think it's just me being an over-pertective mother. I'm still looking for a job anyway I feel that is the only way I will be able to get over it. Is if I get a job and have to go to it.
Better get to sleep before Cayden wants to eat so I can get a little bit of rest.
Please leave a comment or get a hold of me through email at I appreciate any contact.

First Camping Trip!!!

Well we had our first family camping trip this weekend it was a great experience. Cayden, Patrick and I shared a tent with my aunt and uncle. We actually camped without a blow up mattress. We just had a sleeping bag and a couple blankets.
We camped in La Pine with the whole family from Cayden's great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. It was really fun we got to dance and sing karoke. We had wonderful dinners and breakfasts. Thanks to Great grandpa Tycksen.
Cayden was very curious of everything the trees, animals and bugs. He hated being bundled up in either his clothes or his blankets at night during the day he was ok it didn't get to hot about 80 to 85 but boy did it get really cold at night.
Well I go in for another interview tomorrow so I better get going. Talk to everyone soon and God Bless.

A milestone!!!

Well yesterday Cayden rolled from his tummy to his back. He still hasn't got the hang of getting from his back to his tummy he figured it out backwards I guess. We had our appointment with Donna from healthy start and Cayden weighs 13 lbs. 6 oz. and is 24 3/4 inches long he has grown so much since his last doctors appointment. He is now doing high pitched squeals now along with his coos and ga-ga's. He is sleeping less and less during the day now and just recently been having a hard time sleeping at night. Cayden woke up at 3:30 am and every hour after that last night I'm hoping that that was just last night we will see. Right now Cayden and I are trying to nurse with out the nipple sheild we are currently only using it when Cayden is tired he just isn't quite used to it yet so we will continue to keep you posted.
I'm going to have to go back to work I want to try and hold off until the first of August but we will have to see. Well I have to go to the interview for the job so I will talk to everyone soon.
