To Max

Dear Max,

I write this with tears streaming down my face, my heart is so broken, you can never be replaced.

You were my friend, loyal companion and pet. I loved every single moment I had with you. Although we had many years, I longed for many more. You have only been gone a day but I already miss you so much. 

You were my walking buddy, late night t.v. pal, my fur baby. When we first got you, I thought you need me but really I needed you.

 photo DSCN4798_zps1d0f7660.jpg

If love could have determined how long you would live, you would have lived forever. I loved you so much, you left paw prints on my heart. You will never be forgotten, even though we had to part.

I had to let you go, I did what was best for you. I had to let you take your walk to heaven, I know you are now playing, happy and no longer in pain. Rest in peace my furry friend, I will never be the same.

So much love,
Whitney

Milk spoils

I just bought my daughter a shirt that says milk spoils, babies don't. This purchase came to be after listening to people telling me over and over again that holding my babies to much will spoil them. I always told people this in response.

I have five children, ranging in age from eight years to two months. I have held all of them a lot, never made them CIO and co slept with all of them. I stand firm in saying, you can not spoil your infant, a baby can not be held to much and the comfort of a mother is what your baby needs.

Your baby is going to be spoiled, they are crying you to manipulate you.
- Actually a baby is crying because they have a need. You may not always understand that need but that does not make it any less of a need. Your baby can not talk to you and tell you why they are upset, crying is their only way to tell you that they need you. Research shows you can not spoil an infant by holding them.
- Think of it this way. Your baby spent the first nine months of life in your womb, always attached to you, hearing your voice and heartbeat. Your baby needing you is normal and healthy. Your baby is comforted by your voice, your smell, your touch and the sound of your heart beating. You are your child's whole world.
- Everything outside of the womb is new to your baby. At times life can be very overwhelming and they are crying to tell you that. They are crying to say, " Hey mom, I am upset and I need your touch. I need to know all is okay and you are what makes me feel this way. "
- Being fed, not in pain, warm and dry are not your babies only need. Babies need touch, they need their moms. You can not hold your baby to much.
- Different articles have shown why crying it out is not good for your baby. Take the time to read the links in the highlighted words.
- I personally have had two very needy babies. I know what it is like to have a baby that wants you all the time. I know how exhausting it is and stressing it can be. I understand not sleeping, missing showers and feeling extremely overwhelmed. I have been there and am still there with my newest child. That said, I still would never let my baby lay there and cry for me. They are only a baby for so long, once that time is gone, you can never get it back.

Cassandra is still not big enough to wear her new shirt but I plan on having her wear it with pride. Remember everyone, milk spoils, babies don't. Go your child, hold them and never let anyone make you feel like you are doing something wrong by holding your infant.

So glad to see spring.

Winter was hard on the Walters family. Between Kairi not being able to go outside due to her allergy and the fact that it was a bitter winter, the kids have been cooped up for far to long. Indoor play areas can only hold their appeal for some many trips, my kids needed to get outside and be wild.

The weather has FINALLY broken! I am so beyond happy to see spring flowers coming up, have the weather stay above freezing at night and actually be able to wear flip flops again.

We have been out enjoying the weather every day. The kid's moods are improving and they are sleeping better at night ( which is a great thing for me ).

Anyway, on to the point of this post.

We are doing a plant science project this spring and summer with the kids. I plan to document it in pictures and post about it here.

At this time we are planning on doing -

A mini garden ( already started tomato seedlings in the house and we will start a couple other plants over the weekend )
A pumpkin patch ( already started, I just threw a pumpkin from last year over in the corner. We have done this before. )
Plus a lot of the things I have pinned on this board - http://www.pinterest.com/wjwalters/plant-science-for-kids-our-spring-lesson-plan/

Be prepared to see a lot of posts and pictures!

Cassandra Lynn's birth story

This story is more of a pregnancy and birth story then just a birth story. I do not feel like I can just post a birth story without talking about the pregnancy as well.

Cassandra was a surprise baby. Chris and I had talked about having another one but we wanted to wait a few more years and talk things over more. Well, you know what they say about telling God your plans?
I was happy to be having another baby but after all the complications I had with Amelia, I was also scared. We did not know if I would get cholestasis again, if I would have to deliver early or have all the complications that I had after Amelia's birth. I tried to set those fears aside and just concentrate on my newest pregnancy.
 photo 628a59b4-568b-4394-ac2c-e25972c13765_zpsbe226bc8.jpg

The beginning of the pregnancy went pretty well, I had some morning sickness and other normal pregnancy related symptoms. Soon we were at twenty weeks and found out we were having our fourth girl. My son was a little disappointed about not getting a brother but he got over it pretty quickly.

Time continued on and it was shortly before 30 weeks that I started noticing the itching. Itching is the first sign of cholestasis. I called my doctor right away and the got a blood test done. It came back normal but I knew we would have to repeat the test soon. You can itch for a long time before your blood tests will reflect the condition. A couple weeks later the itching was still there, not real intense but still there. They did a redraw and things were slightly elevated, not enough to confirm cholestasis. A couple more weeks went by and I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I had cholestasis again. I was scratching myself raw, I made myself bleed, my urine was the color of soda and overall I felt unwell. They did another test and it confirmed cholestasis. My blood levels went from slightly elevated to severe in this time. I was only 33 weeks pregnant at this time, my doctor put me on medicine called Urso ( to bring my bile acid level down and help with the itching ), ordered weekly biophysical profiles, two stress tests a week and weekly doctor visits. She also set up an induction date for 37 weeks, if something went wrong before hand, they would have to take her earlier. Cholestatsis can be very dangerous to a baby, the rate of still birth increases after 37 weeks.  I felt like I was practical living at the hospital.

Time seemed to drag on, I was so miserable from itching and not sleeping. Slowly, the medicine started to work but nothing completely took the itch away. I wish I could think of a way to describe it to you but honestly, nothing can. It is the worst itching I have ever had in my life. You want to scratch, even when you are making yourself bleed, you still want to scratch. Your skin feels like it is on fire. I would sit down and just cry. I felt so terrible, I was not able to keep on house work, I was not being the mom I wanted to be to my other kids and I was just desperate for relief.

The weeks went on, they kept testing my blood. There was a week that my doctor was concerned they would be sending me for immediate delivery, my liver function came back very bad, she told me she stayed up for hours waiting for lab to call her, telling her the level was critical. Thankfully, between prayer and medicine, it got better. All the tests on Cassandra kept coming back great. We really were just counting down the time until they could induce her at 37 weeks. I prayer every single day that things would continue to go well. I can not tell you how scared I was that something bad was going to happen to my baby.

The day finally arrived for her to come. I went in on Thursday night ( Feb 6th ) for cervical ripening. At the time I had a cervix that was unfavorable for induction. I was only dilated to a one and 30% effaced, cervix was still very high. They started me on cervidle that night around 7pm. I contracted every two minutes most of the night. I was hopefully something had happened over night but was very disappointed come morning. After twelve hours, I was only a two and 40% effaced. They went ahead and started pitocin at around eight oclock that morning. They upped my dosage several times before checking me again, by 11:30 I was 50% effaced and still a two. I kept walking the halls, upping the pit, walking the halls and trying to stay positive. It was very draining. Three oclock rolled around and I was a three and 50% effaced. They wanted to break my water but I told them I was not doing that unless I got a epidural. I wanted an all natural birth but I could not keep doing this all night. I was beyond exhausted, had been contracting without change and just needed a break. They let me get up for awhile, take a soak in the bath and then I got my epidural. She broke my water at around 6pm. I was still a three and 50% effaced. Two hours later she came in and checked again, I was a five and 50% effaced. She told me that we would keep doing this for a little while longer and then we would need to discuss other options. I knew this meant she was thinking I was going to need a csection and I started praying hard that my little girl would come on her own. About twenty minutes later I started feeling pressure during contractions, at first I just ignored it. They had just checked and I was not thinking I could be anywhere close to ready. The nurse came in about twenty minutes after that and I told her I felt some pressure. She told me that she would go ahead and check me just to be safe. I don't think she was thinking I was close either, we were both wrong. She went to check and was rather surprised to say it was time to have this baby. Her head was right there and I was ready to push. They got the doctor, quickly got everything ready and then it was time to push. Cassandra Lynn Walters was born at 9:05, she was 6lbs 10oz and 19 inches long. I had no issues after her birth beyond the normal soreness and cramps.


Cassandra is our last baby, I would love to have more but I know the risks are high. Cholestasis is nothing to mess around with and I can not risk something terrible happening. She is a perfect way to finalize our family. The journey was rough but it was worth it in the end. She is amazing, beautiful and so loved.
