Day 2

Today Amarah went to the sitters house Miss Melanie. She did much better today with eating so hopefully she will continue to do well. I really want breastfeeding to last a lot longer and I'm worried she will start to prefer the bottle over the breast. 

Alayah wanted to take a pictures with her baby sis and I am always happy to oblige.

First day back at work

Today was my first day back at work and as good as it was to be out of the house and doing something it was horrible having to leave Amarah. I really really missed her. She went with her dad today and it was his first time alone with her so I was worried about her all day. I guess she did really well, but she didn't eat much. Alayah was glad to be back at school and to have something to do and to be back with her best friend Danielle. It does kind of suck to know that my maternity leave is over and I won't get time off work like that back. Now starts crunch time on finishing school and getting a good job to support my girls on my own.

2 month Doctor visit

Today was a busy day. Alayah had dance class this morning and then we ran to Target to exchange some clothes that are too small for Amarah. Then we went to the mall to get Amarah's pictures taken. She did much better this time than she did last time. After that we headed to Wal-Mart and then went to Amarah's doctors appt. She is 12lbs and 22.5 inches and her head is 38.5. The doctor said she was in the 75 percentile for weight, the 50th percentile for length, and the 25th for her head. She is a chunky girl that is for sure. She had to get shots today and she was so upset about it. Her cry is so sad. She seems to be doing okay so far tonight. I gave her tylenol right when we got home so I hope she makes it through the night without any problems. Tomorrow I go back to work and I am so sad. I can't believe 9 weeks has gone by already. It went by so fast. I hope we all make it through the day easy peasy because it's going to be an adjustment on all of us.

9 Weeks

You are 9 weeks old today and growing more and more. This week you have been talking so much more and making the cutest little cooing sounds. You are sleeping longer stretches at night and now when you take a bath you like to kick your legs and splash the water. You go to the doctor tomorrow and I am excited to see how much you weigh now. I love the way you get quiet when I talk to you and you look at me very intently. You are doing better with your tummy time and you can turn your head from side to side when on your stomach. You also love to cuddle with mommy and I love it. :)

Meeting granny

Today we went with grandma and papa to the Secret Garden to see the dolphins and the lions. Alayah loves animals so she was excited to see them again. Amarah slept through the whole thing so she didn't get to see anything exciting. Afterward, I took Amarah to her dads house to meet her dads grandma and his brothers. There were a lot of his family members there and they all loved seeing Amarah. Alayah had fun running around with all the guys playing football and soccer. We headed back down to the strip at night time and went to Madame Tussades to see the wax figures. It was neat to see them, but they kind of freaked me out a little bit. Both girls fell asleep on the way home from such a busy day.

eating the whole thing

Today we went to the strip with the intention of going to the Secret Garden, but it took to long to get things done so we will have to go tomorrow. We did go to Senor Frogs at Treasure Island and it was really yummy, but not a restaurant for kids. It was so loud and busy that I couldn't hear any conversations at our own table. I think the noise was a little too much for Amarah as well. She fussed a lot when we got home before crashing. We went to Krispy Kremes first thing today and for the first time ever Alayah actually ate her entire sprinkle donut. Usually, she just eats the sprinkles or she takes one bite and that is it. It was a great day all in all.

Last Friday

Today is my last Friday before going back to work. Ughh...I'm dreading it big time. We didn't do much today but hang around. I ordered pizza and we laid around watching movies and t.v. all day. Pretty unexciting stuff. I broke out some toys for Amarah and let her hold them for as long as she would. Alayah wanted to play with bubbles so I opened some for her to play with too. She used up the whole bottle lol.

I opened Amarah's bumbo today just to see how she would do. She did okay for a few minutes and then she  started to get really wobbly and fussy. I love my girls sweet smile.

Sweet Smiles

Nothing exciting today. Just posting pictures of my sweet baby girl.

8 Weeks

You are 8 weeks old now baby girl. You love your mommy and sometimes cry until I am holding you. This upcoming week is our last full week together before mommy has to go back to work. I am sad that I don't get to spend all day long with you. You are about to outgrow your 3 month size clothes, but six month size are a little bit too big still. You are trying sooo hard to laugh this week. When you try to laugh it comes out as a coughing sound but you have a smile on your face. I love you so much my lil chubster.

Hanging by the pool

My parents had to set up a new gazebo today so Amarah and I hung out in the shade for a little bit and watched them. Alayah ran around being crazy. She is so busy. I am so in love with my girls and so grateful for them everyday.

Saturday Musings

I wanted to put this outfit on Amarah before she outgrows it. She is growing so fast she isn't getting to wear some of her clothes. 

Alayah decided to snuggle up with Amarah today. I don't know why she looks so sad, but I'm glad she loves her sister.

Ladybug girl

I took pictures of Amarah in an old outfit of Alayah's. Amarah is 2 months and Alayah wore it when she was 5 and 6 months lol. Crazy to me how much different they are in size.

Another Tuesday

I took Alayah to dance class today and the babysitter asked if Amarah could come visit during that time so she could kind of have a trial run before I go back to work. It was only an hour, but it was really hard to be away from her. Going back to work is going to be so hard. I wish that I could be a stay at home mommy. I ran out of gas today and had to have my mom come give me enough to get to a gas station and that all on top of issues with Amarah's father. I wonder why things seem to be so hard for me sometimes, but at the end of the day I'm glad I get to go to sleep with two beautiful girls. Tomorrow is a new day and I am grateful I get to spend it with both of them.

7 Weeks

At 7 weeks you are sleeping in your bassinet from about 9 or 10 until 3 in the morning. Mommy loves that long stretch of sleep. You are awake more and more during the day and take short little catnaps and one long nap throughout the day. You are a smiley miley lately and I can see you smiling at things while you are laying in your swing or bed. Your big sister loves to carry you around and you like to watch her when she is near you. You are in size 1 diapers and you are in 3 month size clothing and some of those are getting very snug. You have also started putting your hand in your mouth a lot lately. You are a pro at bath time and there are no tears now when you are in the water. You had your first experience in the pool this week and you didn't even cry. I am sure you are 11 pounds by now and I love every inch of your chub. I love you baby girl.

Mother's Day 2012

My first Mother's Day with two beautiful girls. It was great as a mommy to one and its even better as a mommy to two. I love them both so very much and I hope that I am all that the dream of in a mom.

Pool Day

Amarah got to wear her first swim suit today and hang out by the pool I put her in the water for a few minutes and she tolerated it pretty well.

Alayah actually played in the water and started swimming with her floatie. 

She was all over the pool after she figured out she wasn't going to go under the water. She hates water on her face so she struggles with even bath time. 

I was so happy for Alayah overcoming her fears and enjoying swimming for the first time. Last year she just watched from the sidelines. This year she is going to be in the middle of all the fun.

"Whachoo talkin' bout Willis"
Alayah loves to pick her sister up and move her to the couch when I leave the room. Sometimes Amarah doesn't like it, but most times she lays with her sister happy and content to watch what she is doing.
