5 Weeks

I wanted to use the lamb Alayah got Amarah at the hospital for her monthly pictures, but she was grumpy and I didn't have much time to snap a picture so it's nothing too fancy. Hopefully, I can get better ones in the future.

Homework day

Amarah was kind of grumpy this evening. She acts like she wants to eat, but fusses and won't eat for very long. I spent the day doing homework. I can't wait for this semester to be over. Alayah went to the park with my parents while I Amarah stayed home with me to do homework.

I put Amarah in an outfit from my grandma. Its a 0-3 month and I don't think it's going to fit long after it's washed. Baby girl needs to slow down in the growing department

Mommy's day out

Today I took Amarah in for her 1 month appointment. Baby girl weighs 9lbs 9oz and is 22 inches long. Her head was 37cm as well. The doctor said she is in the 50th percentile for weight and the 75 percentile for height. Her head was at the 25th percentile. I can't believe she is so big already. She got a shot at this appointment and it was so sad. I hate seeing her cry from an owie. After her appointment I met up with a friend at the movie theaters. We saw Think like a Man and it was Amarah's first movie. She slept and ate the during the movie and was such a snugglebug. Alayah stayed home with my mom and had some girl time with her while they waited for the heating and cooling guys to bring the new water heater.

No water

Today I woke up to the water heater being out. Of course it was just when I needed to take a shower and the girls really needed baths. We went over and visited with the babysitter again and Alayah had fun playing with her little boy. Alayah really enjoys getting out of the house lately.

Big Sisters hand me downs

This was Alayah's dress that she wore at 5 months old....Amarah is barely two months old lol. Its crazy to think that Alayah was smaller than Amarah is right now and at the same time I can't believe how big Amarah is lol

4 Weeks

You are 4 weeks today baby girl. You didn't sleep as well during this photo session, so I had to do it in two parts. One part before your bath and the other part after. You are still in your newborn diapers, but I have officially moved you into your 0-3 months clothes. Next week you will definitely be in size 1 diapers. I can't believe in 4 weeks you have gone up 3 diaper sizes. :)

You are starting to sleep in longer stretches at night which mommy is loving. You are sleeping from about 11pm to 5am. Someday's you will sleep again from 5 until 8, but other days you are up at 6 or 7.

You are starting to be awake more during the day and you really love when mommy is holding you. You are also starting to smile. You don't smile for the same thing twice, but you randomly let out cute little grins. You also moan and make little noises while you are eating and while you are sleeping. It is the cutest thing. I love you baby girl

Hawaiian Festival

This is the last time Amarah will wear her newborn onesie's and I am so sad. She has grown so fast it is unreal.

At least this skirt is a newborn size, but the onesie is a 3 month. 

Today we went to the Hawaiian festival here in town and walked around for a little bit. Alayah liked watching the dancers.

After the festival we went to a local restaurant called Bahama Breeze and had dinner. I was exhausted by the time we got home.

Lazy day

We just hung around the house today. Actually, we just laid in bed all day. Amarah is eating a lot more today so I can't get much done and Alayah has been content to hang out in her room. Amarah was smiling so much today in her sleep. It was so cute, but I couldn't catch any of them on camera. She is too quick for me. She is going to have the cutest smile because she sticks her tongue out while she smiles. I could just eat her up. I left her with my mom for about 30 minutes today so I could take Alayah to blockbuster to pick out a movie. I thought she could use some alone time. It was hard leaving Amarah, but I'm glad that I got some special time with Alayah.

Busting at the seams

I took pictures of Amarah in a few of her newborn outfits because she won't be wearing them anymore since she is busting at the seams lol

This one is busting at several seams lol

Going to the Park

I walked with the girls down to the park today so Alayah could play for a little bit. She had lots of fun and Amarah enjoyed sleeping in her carseat. We all needed a little bit of sun since we've been stuck in the house most of the time.

3 Weeks Old

Oh my goodness how is it that you are 3 weeks old already. Looking at these pictures I can't believe how chubby you have gotten. 

You still wake up every 2-3 hours at night time and you seem to have your longest sleeping times during the day. We are going to need to work on that. You love to eat and only fuss when you are hungry. Mommy loves to hold you all the time. You are so fun to snuggle with. Your big sister likes to help out with you and she likes to try to comfort you when you are crying. She will stop what she is doing to come tell me you are upset. 

You are starting to outgrow your newborn clothes and your newborn diapers. Mommy is not ready for that yet, so you need to slow down okay :) I did finally get you to take a pacifier so hopefully that will help curb your need to suck on me all the time. 

I love you so much baby girl :)

Making some visits

Today we went and visited my friend who is interested in watching Amarah when I go back to work. We stayed for a couple of hours just talking and hanging out. Afterward we went to visit Amarah's paternal grandparents for the first time. They were really excited to meet her. It was awkward for me because I haven't seen them since before I got pregnant, but I tried not to think about any of that stuff. I did finally finish Alayah's hair and I'm glad it is all finished.

homework schmomwork

I literally spent all day today doing homework with baby girl in my lap. Alayah went with my parents to run errands so I could get some of my homework finished. It is so hard to do it when I'm by myself with both girls. One of them always needs something and all my homework is timed. I can't wait for this semester to be over.

How can it be

This outfit used to be Alayah's. It barely fits Amarah at 3 weeks and Alayah wore it at 2.5 months. How is it my little baby girl is growing past what her sister was. I want her to stay little. Today we met up with my co-teacher from work and had some lunch together. It was nice to get out of the house. It rained all day today too which I loved. It makes laying around in bed seem normal lol

Almost done

Every baby needs pictures in their air jordan attire right lol. I still haven't been able to finish Alayah's hair, but I hope it will be all done by tomorrow. It will be nice not to have to do it for several least I hope it lasts a few weeks. 

Alayah fell asleep while I was doing her hair so I laid Amarah in her arms so I could get a picture. Alayah really loves her sister and is so gentle with her.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012


I decided to do some of Alayah's hair last night, but I only got one side finished. It is really hard to find time to braid nowadays. The baby always needs something once I get started. I can't wait to figure out our new groove.

Stick legs

I love how she sleeps with her legs sticking straight out and they stick up a little in the air.  It is so stinking cute. I love this little girl so much. The days are starting to mix together now so I can't remember what we did when. I think that we just hung out around the house today and relaxed.

2 Weeks Old

Amarah you are two weeks old today. I can't even remember how small you were when you came home because you have gotten so big already. Your face if fuller and your chub is starting to show up everywhere. You love to eat. You eat about every three hours and you eat for about 10 to 15 minutes on one side and then you take about a 20-30 minute break and then start on the other side. You have pretty much outgrown the preemie diapers and I am starting to put you in the newborn size. I still have a few preemie sizes I am trying to use up, but you tend to explode out of them and I have to change your clothes.You sleep for 3-4 hour stretches at night. I can't wait until we can get you to go a little longer because mommy is really tired. :) You took a bath with mommy today and you seem to like taking one with me much better than you do in your baby bathtub. I love snuggling with you and wish that I could just lay snuggling you all day long. I love you so much and I don't know how we made it without you.

Easter 2012

Easter was wonderfully different this year. Mainly because of a sweet little addition to my family, but also because this year Alayah wasn't stuck in the hospital. 

Alayah went on an egg hunt around the back yard and was pretty excited with her hot wheels cars and animals hidden inside the eggs. After the egg hunt we headed out to eat and then down to the strip to walk around in the nice weather. We stopped at the Coca Cola factory and tried different pop from around the world. Alayah says she wants to go back and taste the flavors again.

Easter 2012
It was also Amarah's first trip to the strip so it deserved a picture.

Egg hunt

Today we went to the park near our house for an egg hunt. There were lots of people there and Alayah got a little overwhelmed. She was too scared to go get eggs and pretty much cried the whole time. I don't know why she gets so apprehensive in new situations, but I hope she outgrows it soon. Amarah enjoyed the stroller ride on the way to the park asleep. :)

Amarah's first bath

Amarah had her first bath today. Her stump fell off on Monday, but today was the first day her dad could come  by to be a part of it. I let him do the honors so I could film and take pictures. She hated the entire bath. She screamed and was so sad. I hate hearing her cry. I think I will give her baths with me for awhile in hopes that she won't cry as much. Alayah liked baths with me much better so maybe Amarah will be the same way. 
After Amarah's dad left we headed to the mall to get pictures done with the Easter bunny. The line was long and Alayah was restless, but luckily Amarah slept the whole time. I'm so excited to celebrate holidays with both my girls now. I can't wait until Mother's Day.

1 Week Appt

I took baby girl to the doctors today for her 1 week appointment. She weighed in at 7lbs 3oz! That is almost a pound in a week. My baby girl isn't going to be very little for very long. I can't believe she put on so much weight. I could tell she was getting heavier and I started to notice a double chin growing lol. They also pricked her foot for the PKU test while we were there. It was so sad. I hate hearing her cry. She sticks her little bottom lip out and it breaks my heart. Alayah was funny because she wanted to make sure that the appointment was not for her and that she would not be getting any shots. She doesn't like to hear her sister cry because it is too loud, so she was worried about her getting poked. I still can't believe I have two girls now. I still haven't adjusted to my new normal yet. I hope I can get everything balanced out soon. Sometimes I feel like I'm not giving Alayah enough, yet Amarah requires so much right now. I do know that I love both girls soooo much :)

Lovely Wednesday

We just hung around the house today. I gave Amarah a bath with me in the bathtub today because she puked all over herself and had a blow out. I hope she feels okay. She didn't cry during the bath with me which is great because she doesn't even like getting a sponge bath. She doesn't like being messed with. :) I love being able to just snuggle my baby all day long. Alayah is really enjoying having a sister and likes to hold her, but not for very long.
