month 3

3 months already! I'm sad that I am rushing Hadley to grow up while I should be savoring each and every baby second. She has come so far though with each week she turns. She doesn't cry all the time like she once did. She is happy a lot and as a parent, that is so rewarding.

So at three months, Hadley:

-is all hands. She can practically get a whole hand in her mouth. Impressive, right
-is a drool machine still
-loves her feet. She is caught holding her feet lots
-can grab anything she sets her sights on
-is now on week three of the prevacid solutabs. She had been on compounded prevacid since two weeks. If I had known how well she would do on the solutabs, I would have changed her over 2 months ago. It's working out great
-is on night 3 of sleeping in her crib in her room on her belly. (ironically I'm on night 3 of sleeping on the floor in her room) she is doing so well with it since she has such strong neck and head control. She's still waking twice a night but seems to be sleeping more comfortably
-drinks 4 oz of alimentum formula every 3 hours.... So she probably won't be giving up those night feedings until she increases the amount she drinks during the day
-smiles so much
-is full time in daycare
-is still smitten with her big sister

This sums up hads at 3 mos perfectly ... Mouth full of hand and hand full of foot!

Still has blue eyes. Thinking there here to stay

Such a sweet girl with an extra sweet smile


first and first and first

Sweet cheeks started first grade! That even feels weird to say and type. Please someone slow time down for me when it comes to my kiddos. The good news is that she loves school and is an awesome student. Two things I could never say about myself. She also has a friend in her class so that made her transition into her new class a bit easier.

Look at her. Seriously, she has a style of her own. Dig the socks! I love this girl. I'm smiling as I even type this because she makes me so proud.

and lookie here....guess who else had a first day of school. Ok I admit she didn't cry but I did. It's so hard to leave her as I worry so much given her health issues with reflux. Just totally adds another level of stress to daycare that I could do without. For the most part, Hadley is adjusting really well. She just doesn't nap much there yet. Luckily the first two weeks she was only there from 9-1 as we are both adjusting to the new schedule. This week she is staying until 3:30 and next week begins our normal full days. It's going to be tough for sure.

I am so blessed to have two smart, well adjusted girls!

and this ribbon link necklace

that sweet cheeks is still such the trendy one.

one of those blogs

i have become that mom who starts a blog and then ever so slowly lets life creep in the way and never posts again. i seriously feel like i have no time in the day. and i don't even know where the day goes but it is gone before i knew it was even here. yup, there it just up and went. did you see it?
i have hopes that now that the girls are in school (sniff sniff) and i am back at work that a routine will kick in soon and i will have a little more "me" time at the end of the day. of course this all works out perfectly in my little head but when it comes to actuality, that is a whole different story, right.

so i am here on my blog and setting post goals for this week

1. wordless wednesday
2. girls first day of school
3. hadley's month 3

wish me luck.
