Makayla Update 2 months

So, yesterday Makayla had her 2 month checkup. She did great. She is weighing in at 13 pounds 12 oz 95 percentile for her weight and 24 inches again in the 95 percentile. We get to start her on rice cereal in 2 more months, after her next check up. Who can believe that my 8 pound baby is now a 12 pound girl. Where did time fly by? She is now cooing and talking and laughing, oh, and did I mention that her laugh is contagious? Anyway, just thought I would update you. Pictures soon!

Just because

Just because we won't see Shae, or Aunt Rachel and Uncle Ryan.
Just because we are going to Brooklyn to see George on his leave from Iraq
Just because she is adorable...
Here's some bath time fun...

Guess who is 2 months old today?...

That girl right there. Don't you love the bib? It was a Valentine's gift from her Aunt Jaime.
Look at how much she grew...

We go to the doctor's next week, so I will be able to post some stats on my sweet babes. I hope you all had a great valentine's day.

Happy Valentine's Day

It's Makayla's first Valentine's Day! Here's wishing you a day filled with love.

We're going for a walk...

It was 44 degrees today, so I decided Makayla and I needed some fresh air. I bundled her up and put her in the big girl stroller. And we walked. Of course it started with a tune from Joey. I can't wait to hear Joey sing it with us!

I think she liked it. Here's to an early spring and many many walks to come!

So, today was day number 3 back at work. I felt very green. I felt like I haven't worked in over a month, well true I was off for over a month. Monday and Tuesday I did mostly paperwork. Insert YAWNNN HERE! Holy crap it was a lot of paperwork. I don't mind doing it, because well, I had too, but whatevs. Monday was hard going to work. I cried. I hoped the babes would have been sleeping, but she had different plans. Sunday night she went to bed at 11:30, slept until 2 am and then was AWAKE until 0500. At that point, I went on with my day to get ready for work. I didn't even bother the babysitter until about 0900 and then only texted when she texted me first. Tuesday was a little easier, teared, but not cried and knew that the babes was in good hands. It definitely makes it easier to go to work when you know the babes is in good hands. Today, with the ice, the hubs stayed home. It was his first time alone with the babes since she was born, and I think I was more worried about her being home with him than with the babysitter. Either way, tomorrow is Thursday and my first week back is almost over, and I survived. Friday the babes is 7 weeks old, but I am not rushing for her to grow up. On Valentines Day she is officially 2 months special is that. Anyway, I will continue to try to post as I can, but I am new at trying to juggle the mommy hood and career life so I just might blog not as often. Either way, try to stay warm. If you look outside, it looks like I live inside a snow globe.
