I've been MIA... obviously.

Well, I'm back... I think. I can't believe almost two months have gone by since my last post. We've been busy... but not that busy. We are enjoying fall and excited for winter... or at least I'm excited for winter. Let it snow!

I'm going to try and attempt to update my blog every day in November. I was able to do it last November... so I'll try again... in order to get me back in blogging mode.

Of course the kids are growing like crazy, I'll post pictures soon.

Andy is back to the grindstone full throttle with teaching and taking a class. He is getting his Gifted and Talented endorsement.

I am doing really well right now :). The month of October sucked big time for me mentally/emotionally, but I'm finally feeling better. Shortly after Maddie turned 2 months old, I started having major anxiety attacks. I've never experienced anything like that and it was so not a good feeling. I think it had something to do with hormones and postpartum what not. A similar thing happened to me with Fisch when he was 2 months, except that time it was a sudden surge of depression.

I'm wacky, I know, but I'm dealing with it and I finally feel "normal" again.

I'm so glad to see you back. I've been thinking of you and wondering how you've been. Newborns are the best, but hardest work we are blessed to do. All those hormones take too much out of us. I've experienced similar issues postpartum. No fun! Keep plugging onward Lisa. Think your awesome!

Glad to hear from you again! I've been checking in occasionally hoping to see an update. I will follow your November challenge to get back into the swing of blogging--I usually have to do that in January, after the routine upset of the holidays. Keep slogging through the postpartum hormone upheaval--all your friends are here for you.

glad you're back! good to hear that you are feeling normal again...isn't it crazy how hormones can completely change how you are feeling...and even if you know it, you can't stop it. no fun! can't wait to see your updates...and new pics of those cute kids!!

You're back! Congrats.

Been there. After #4 with a Depo shot when she was six months old- I thought I was going to have to get meds to help. It was awful, even when you know what it is causing the problem. Glad your body is adjusting back to normal.

Have a happy Monday- it's the beginning of a new month and I'm setting some goals! It just seems appropriate after my lazy September and even lazier October. (candy coma)

Okay, for some reason, the comment I left you last night didn't post. Argh. I'm glad you're feeling more like yourself as of late... I know you're relieved as well. If you need anyone to talk to or rant to, you know I'm always available to lend an ear. Also, I'm going to join you on your blogging every day gig...except for yesterday as I was late on the uptake. Geez... I feel like I'm late for everything nowadays!

Thanks Girls! I really appreciate the support and the shared experiences.

Now, I hope to start catching up on your blogs!

Glad to know I am not the only one who has been MIA. Seriously life has been crazy and I know all too well about feeling wacky. Glad you are doing better. Your kids are darling...Miss Maddie is quite the may have to lock her up in a few years! Double chins are so hot these least that is what I am telling myself. Oh and back fat is all the rage...I am thinking of adding an extra roll. LOL When we are germ free...If we are ever germ free...I need to get over there and see that cute baby of yours.

Take care

Lisa, what lovely pics and what a lovely baby you have there - Maddie is so cute! Sorry you have been having anxiety problems - that can be so hard to deal with. Really glad to hear that things are improving. Fischer looks gorgeous - I think it's fantastic that he's being so caring of his dolls. :)

Glad you're feeling better! Hormones are amazing things. I don't even know what to expect next time. With Nicky I had a little PPD but didn't end up needing meds for it, just counseling. With a double dose of hormones this time... I'm a little worried!
