Owen has a new habit of putting food in his hair and setting it on his head. He is such a silly boy. He went from throwing his food on the floor to putting food on his head. He keeps us laughing! Those are pears in his hair...

Uncle Aaron and Aunt Sheena brought us a wonderful dinner and visited. Yes, they are holding the baby!

Update from the past 2 weeks

I thought I better do a post of my past two eventful weeks so I can read back and remember the struggle and maybe grow from this all. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving I ventured up to Perry to my parents house where I found myself starting to hemorrhage. Luckily I had my mom to care for me and two sisters near by to provide some necessities. After a call to my doctor, I took 3 Motrin and layed flat and the bleeding nearly stopped. The next day was Thanksgiving and the whole day was wonderful being with family and enjoying all the family fix ins. Good times! Jeff and I got home that evening and I started to bleed extremely heavy again. I was passing clots the size of grapefruits and the bleeding was literally gushing out of me. I was scared to death. Thanks to the help of family and neighbors I was able to make it to the hospital to get help. After all the blood work, ultrasounds and an emergency D&C I made it home and am feeling a ton better. I guess I had what they call a detached placenta. There was some tissue left in my uterus that should've come out during birth that caused all this. I kept praying in my heart for things to be ok. My babies needed me and I was scared to death that something was going to happen to me. Thankfully, I have an extremely supportive family that does so much for me. I appreciate my mom and Jeff's mom for being there through it all. I deeply appreciate all that both of you have done to help us through this. I'm also thankful to Jeff for stepping in and being mommy so I could get the rest my body needed to regain my strength. I am truly blessed! Kaebrie has been a very pleasant baby so far. Every day gets better and better. Now that I am feeling more normal I can enjoy every moment with my two kids. That's been our excitement. This week I am feeling so much better and am starting to prepare for the holidays.
