Aria Daae

Here she is! Meet Aria Daae, Desirees new addition!

I got a phone call at 7:30 am on Thursday morning from Des telling me that her water had broken. I figured that I would get Jack on the bus and see if I could drop Asher and Eden off at Sarahs and then make my way over to Desirees house (for those of you who dont know, she was planning a home birth). I got Jack on the bus and then got a phone call from Ryan asking me to pick up the supplies that they needed to have there for the midwife (they were planning on going out to get the stuff that day). I went directly to Wal Mart, got the stuff and swung it by their apt at about 9:50 am. I got to the door and as I was knocking I heard a baby crying. LOL! "Crap" I thought, "I have the stuff dor the delivery right here!" Lmao! Guess she didnt need it! Hahaha! I walked in to see Des laying in her bed nursing her new baby girl. She looked GREAT for just having a baby! Of course it did happen REALLY fast. The midwife barely got there in time! Lol! Anyway as I got closer I realized that little tiny 5 foot 2 Desiree did not give birth to a small baby. Little Aria is not so little weighing in bigger than Eden is Now! Hahaha! She was 10 pounds even! So for all of you who doubt you could have a big baby naturally or at home for that Des! You Go Girl!!!

What to do??

HELP!!!! :) I need some input from any and all sides of the fence on this. Little Eden is scheduled for her vaccines tomorrow and although I vaccinated the boys on schedule and wasnt too worried about it I seem to be really stressing about it with Eden. I dont know if it is because she is small or what? It just seems like such a large amount of stuff to put in such a little body. I know there are pros and cons and there are people on both sides of the fence. I am not one to not vaccinate at all but I was looking into the delayed alternative schedule. My friend Andrea was just here with the same delima and though we sent the morning discussing it and trying to come to a conclusion as to what to do we ended up where we started.......lost. LOL! Where and how do you even get the delayed schedule done? Do Dr's listen to you if you want to get it done any way but their way. Can you ask the health Dept to only give some and not all at once? How do you go about talking to a Dr about this without pissing them off??? Somebody Help!!! :) I know some of you have lots to say about go ahead! :) Cmon Jenny!

Oh and, of course, i had to put a picture of Eden and the boys for you all to see :)
