Wills family update!!!!!!

Polina has been going to daycare for about 2 weeks now. She goes 3 times a week and loves it. It's too hard with my heart condition to be lifting her and chasing her around the house and plus with the pregnancy I am totally beat. I am on heart meds and doing lovenox injections 2x a day in the belly just as a prevention since I'm pregnant it complicates things. After the baby is born I will be having heart ablation done. I have to wait a couple of months to heal from the c-section and to prevent blood clots I have to wait till my hormones level goes down so another thing no breast feeding I wanna take care of this soon as possible.Randy does all the grocery shopping and errands.I play with Polina on the floor or on the couch since its too much for me to be running around. I am looking forward for this baby to be out so I can feel better and lighter.Polina has been doing really well. She says mama,dada,no of course,bye bye,up,down and all her body parts names elbows,knees,neck etc....She even does animal sounds especially the elephant .She even throws her arm in the air like the elephant trunk.She is a good sleeper. she goes to bed around 730 and sleeps till 7 in the morning and when its daycare time she wakes up at 6. she always wakes up with a smile on her face and is never grumpy. She also takes naps 2-3 hours. The teacher at the daycare said that right after she eats her lunch she heads straight to her cot and sleep 2 2/1 hours. She is very chatty returning from daycare since other children talk a lot more than her. She has gained 2 and a half pounds since we brought her home on November 16 so now she weights in at a whopping 24 and a half pounds. She loves to eat and is not picky at all. She eats watermelon,peas,green beans,broccoli,carrots,cottage cheese i mean everything. one thing she doesn't like is juices so she only drinks water or milk. we are glad that she doesn't care for the juices less sugar for her. My mom makes her every two days soups from scratch.My mom will make her barley soup,beat soup,cauliflower soup and she loves them all. I have to say we are pretty lucky to have such a great girl. On the other hand she does throw some terrible fits when she doesn't get her way. She does bang her head and hits herself in the face. We are working on that and I have to say she did get better but we still have a long way to go. Besides the tantrums she is a great girl and we are so very lucky to have her in our lives.

Glad to hear that daycare is working out for Polina. You are very lucky to have a cheerful morning girl :) Grace is hit or miss when she wakes up! Hope you continue to feel well. Good luck!

Great to hear an update. And sorry, the tantrums won't subside. I am 33 years old and still can pitch a fit - it is the spunk of the red hair. :)

Definitely praying for you to have as easy of a pregnancy as possible and so you can then get the surgery. In all of that, some things have been going on and the issue of Lovanox and the shots came up for me recently as well and I was horrified because not something you hear often. My mom is on coumadin but the doctor I saw and for the reasoning said the shots are better because easier to monitor and control blood levels. A little boost for me that if needed, can be managed as you are handling that with everything else you are going through!

Hoping you have your happy, healthy family of FOUR!

So glad you posted an update. Been thinking about you! You really need to take care of yourself and I'm so glad that Polina is enjoying daycare and the other kids! When we all get our kids home and you're new baby is born, we need to plan a reunion!!

It is so good to hear from you and know that you are taking care of yourself so well and that Polina is adjusting so well to her family and life here. Best wishes always.

So glad to hear an update. Polina sounds like she's doing wonderfully. Glad to hear you're taking good care of yourself. Can't wait until you have your two little ones in your arms and you have all of your surgery behind you :).

masha,
if you do the lovenox make sure you ice the area really good first. the needle is not bad its the sting. I have tried everything to prevent bruising but sometimes its a hit or miss. I definitely won't be doing any pregnancy belly pictures let's just say. just ice before really good and after really good too and we have noticed after we do that that the bruise doesn't show up. I wish I knew that before now some are the size of a golf ball or bigger and than in some areas I have knots.good luck its really not bad its the bruising because than you run out of belly space,next tights for me.

Great to hear she is doing so well and adjusting smoothly to daycare and the family. Take it easy and enjoy the rest of the pregnancy.

So glad she's doing well! Kiddos are so resilient (sometimes more than they should ever have to be, like in an orphanage). Praying the rest of this pregnancy goes off without a hitch!
