3 and 4 month update

Yikes!  It's been a very long time since I posted.  Having a baby changes a lot!  So here's a photo dump.

 She loves her puppy!

Our 3 month photo shoot... This was right before Thanksgiving.  She was quite the crank that evening, but we managed to get a few good shots.  We took our first family trip to the lake over Thanksgiving weekend, and Daisy did great.

 She had a great Christmas, and I loved having 2 weeks off!  It was a great season.

 At our 4 month appointment, she was 16lbs 13 oz and 25 1/2 inches.  We've got quite the chunk on our hands :)  She's in the 95th percentile for both height and weight.

 This is Christmas Morning.  We went to my parents in the morning and Jim's family for a late lunch.  We were very spoiled by both families!  My parents are taking everyone to Great Wolf Lodge, and Jim's family spoiled Daisy absolutely rotten.  She got a My Pal Violet... such a cool toy!  It's personalized just for Daisy.

This was one morning before church, just throwing it in because she's so cute!

We started food after our 4 month appointment, and she loves it!  She loves eating.  So far we've tried rice cereal and oatmeal.  She likes both of them.  Now we're ready for some fruits n veggies.  This picture was taken after dinner, apparently she wore herself out. :)
She's sort of sleeping all night, usually, when she wakes up in the middle of the night it usually just takes a binky to get her back to sleep.
She'll be 5 months Thursday!  Where is all the time going??

Daisy is Two Months Old!

Happy 2 month b-day baby!

I'm so in love with your smiling face!  You slept through the night for the first time 2 nights ago.  You and Daddy get to spend the whole day together Friday, since he has the day off.  I will be doing parent teacher conferences.  Then he gets to take you to the doctor Monday.  I'm sad to miss that milestone, not the least bit upset to miss the shots!!!  I'm pretty sure I would cry more than you.  

Love you so much, my growing baby girl!

Daisy is Seven Weeks, and back to school

I survived my first week back at work.  I'd forgotten how much extra stuff there is in a classroom to get done every day.  I miss my Title 1!!!  My class is actually really good, just very talkative.  Plus the other 3rd grade teachers are super helpful.  I only cried Monday on my way to work and just a bit before school got started.  I blame that on a couple sweet teachers that came in and asked how I was and said they were praying for me.  They were too nice.. the nerve!

Daisy was at my mom's Monday and Tuesday.  Then she goes to a babysitter the rest of the week.  The babysitter is great, but she has to go to a nearby school to pick up a couple kids.  She apparently screamed all the way there and back all 3 days.  I'm not sure what to do about that.  I think the problem is that her natural schedule is to take a really good long afternoon nap, which is hard when you're getting carted here n there.  Hopefully she'll get used to the new routine, or I'd be really tempted to start looking for other options.  I'm just pretty sure we won't find anywhere as affordable.  Bleck  Wish I didn't have to even think about all that.

Daisy at 7 weeks
I think she's getting bigger.  We're going to have to up her bottle, because 4 oz. doesn't seem to be as satisfying anymore.  When you take the bottle away she wails.  She's starting to smile more at people and make eye contact when she's really awake.  If she's the least bit tired she zones out completely.  She's also making all sorts of noises.  I think she is starting to get more arm control.  She folds her hands while having a bottle, or she'll hold your finger.  I love that!!  Anyway that's Daisy this week.
I hate how little I got to see her this week.  We get home about 5 or 5:30, then hang out just a bit and she's in bed by 8 or 9.  There's usually a nap in there as well (which is what she's doing now).  I keep telling myself this is just the season we're in.  It'll get better as she stays awake longer, then sleeps better at night.  Plus there's always summer right? :)

Hope y'all had a great week, and enjoy your weekend.  I know I will!  I'm not going anywhere unless I have to, maybe church... we'll see.

Daisy is Six Weeks

Daisy and I went to my Dr. appointment yesterday.  She cried so much a nurse came in and held her so she wouldn't scream anymore.  I should have known better, she does not like being in her car seat if it's not moving.  She usually likes car rides and stroller trips, as long as we're moving.  Anyway, the appointment went fine after that.  The girls in the office loved Daisy's personalized diaper bag and her little dog attached to a binky.  The appointment messed up our morning so much she didn't take a nap until almost noon, then she slept for three hours!  Needless to say we still don't have much of a routine or schedule yet.  But Daisy's starting to work into a routine, when we don't mess it up by leaving home. :)
This is right before we went to see Daddy for the baby shower at his school.  We know how to make overalls hot!  I go back to work Monday, so I'll probably be AWOL for a while.  Hope y'all have a great weekend!

Seriously?!? Aunt Flo, You suck!

Dear Aunt Flo,
My lil munchkin isn't even 6 weeks old.  Give me a break!  I guess this is what I get for not breast feeding. I go to the doctor tomorrow for my 6 week check up, so I'll get on the pill.  Last time I was on the pill you stopped being such a major B and settled down a bit.  You'd better do that again this time!

P.S.  You were not missed in the past year!
