    Is anyone out there having problems with their older kids acting out for attention? We have been home from the PCMC NICU for almost 3 weeks and my older kids are driving me crazy... I don't know how to be a mom to 3 when I have a baby that requires more attention then a "normal" baby. Atleast what my normal is anyways....
  • Hi! What a cutie you have. I went through your blog a little bit. Mine is "my lil angels". Everything is going pretty good right now. I am 22 weeks pregnant and things are going well. We found out the baby has a cleft lip/palate. It was really hard for me to deal with at 1st but its not seeming so bad now. I know the other obstacles we could face instead. I'm hoping to make it to 36 weeks this time.
    How are things going for you? hows your little girl?
    Take care!

    Re: Utah
    It's really nice to see people on here from Utah. I had a baby 7 weeks ago up at the U. They life flighted me from Jordan Valley to the U and I had her 5 days later. She weighed 1 pound and was 11 inches long. She has done really well so far, she's just had a lot of infections. I'm hoping to get to hold her for the first time around Christmas. I wouldn't ever have another baby anywhere but at the U. I felt really safe up there.
