H went in for a well child check up today. He weighs close to 23 lbs, and is more than 28” long. E weighs about 24 lbs, and I’m not sure of her height. Currently, H is wearing a size 5 diaper, and E a size 4. H is in nearly the 100th percentile for height and weight.

My girls and I last night as we attended local fireworks. 

Disclosure: finally made the call to my midwife today and told her I thought I may have PP anxiety. I’m not suicidal. 
I don’t have thoughts about hurting my kids. I do have a lot of anxiety. I worry about my kids these days in a way that I think is a bit over the top. I also seem to have very little patience which results in me overreacting to situations. I spoke with the nurse today and will hear back tomorrow what the plan is for me-appointment and then medication or medication and then appointment. This is new territory for me so I don’t know what to expect, but I’ve been told that medication will take the edge off. The nurse said from what I described, it sounds like the beginning of PPD.
