::SAHM:: & 2 mth. check up

Yep, that's me! As of Friday, my new job is full time MOMMY :)

For most of my maternity leave, it was heavily looking like I would have to return to work. Boo. I was really bummed about it. Austin and I both felt like it was best that I be home with our daughter. But what we wanted and what the budget looked like did not line up. I mean, I guess we need a house and electricity...lol. All I can say is, our prayers were answered and God made it possible. I couldn't be happier, it's truly an answer to prayer!!!

Now my goals are: 1.) to get a good daily routine going and 2.) to work on getting Miss Priss sleeping in her own bed. (Yes, she's been sleeping in our bed.....not a good decision, I know, but at the beginning it was the ONLY way she would sleep! You do what ya gotta do!!) Pray for this transition, as it will NOT be easy. My first attempt was last night, and it did not go well. She only cried for about 40 minutes, but stayed awake for about two hours! It was almost midnight and I could not go to sleep until I knew she was asleep, so I ended up going in to get her. And would you believe as soon as I layed that booger in our bed, she was out! Ughhh....very stubborn and strong-willed!

Friday we had her 2 month checkup/shots. (She was actually 2 1/2 mths. by the time of the appt) She now weighs 10 lbs. 7 oz. and is 24 inches long. She was scheduled to get 5 shots and the roto virus by mouth, but I was nervous about her getting so many vaccines at one time, being so small, so the doctor split them up and she rec'vd three. (We go back this Friday for the others) Her doctor was very happy with her stats and development, so that made ME happy :)

Still cannot believe how fast she's growing. I'm soaking in every second!
