Yeah I need something...or better yet a lot of things.
1.TIME for myself- TIME to work out, TIME to eat, TIME to lay and do nothing ALONE, TIME to lay around and do nothing with Buddy, TIME to go out on a date, TIME to go shopping, TIME with my girl friends, TIME to go visit my girl friends and I am sure I am forgetting something.
2. New clothes- NOTHING and I mean NOTHING fits anymore. Thank you to all of you who think I look great, but I can assure you that I don't feel that great. Unless I can get to the gym 5 times a week (not looking good) I am going to have to go on a serious shopping spree just so I will have clothes to wear. Oh and did I mention I need to go somewhere out of town because Albany has NOTHING here. Outlet Mall would be nice for my wallet.
3. Christmas shopping- I have done absolutely no shopping for Christmas. Everyone might just be getting a gift card and a picture of Beau. Sorry no thoughtful gift this year. Hopefully next year.
4. TO GET OUT OF THIS HOUSE!!!!!!!!! It has been freezing all week so haven't taken Beau out of the house. So I have been stuck here all day every day (except for one day I did go shopping by myself for an hour, good but not enough time or shopping). I also don't like to go alone with Beau anywhere it is so much trouble! So what should I do? Suck it up and take Beau out in the cold by myself and go somewhere just so I'm not here? Wait for the weekend so Buddy or my mom and come with me? Oh wait I can't go anywhere because I DONT HAVE ANYTHING TO WEAR!!!!!!!
5. A good night or weekend with my friends. I need to cry from laughing too hard. I need to hear about your lives. I need to eat good food. I need to watch our favorite movies and quote them all the way through. So friends if you are reading this and I hope you are. COME SAVE ME!!!!! Don't get me wrong. I love my baby Beau Breezy and I love taking care of her every day. I am going to miss these weeks whenever I go back to work. She is growing so much everyday and doing different things everyday and I hope I don't miss too much while I am at work. She is beautiful and so much fun and a wonderful addition to our lives.
Funny story about Beau to end this pathetic post. She hates hats. Screams every time we try to put one on her head. But we have found a hat that she will wear. She loves her Santa hat! And she looks so cute in it! So if she is still wearing her Santa hat in February you will know why. We aren't still stuck on Christmas, it's just the only hat she will wear.
Wow! I can't believe I haven't written on the blog in a whole month. Well, I guess I can, but it still seems like a long time. I am sure you all have stopped checking it, but hopefully this will be a nice surprise if it has stumbled across your mind to check again.
Beau's first thanksgiving went well and she was very good, although I think the whole week turned her schedule upside down. She adjusted well though, and is right back on her normal schedule this week which includes sleeping through the night! What does her normal schedule consist of you might ask? Well here is a basic run down:
7:30- Wake up and eat 8-9- Lay on the floor and kick around/sit in her chair/smile at mom 9-10:30 or 11- Morning nap 10:30- Eat again 11-12:30- Play 1-1:30- Quick Nap 1:30- Eat again 2-3- Play with dad when he gets home from work 3-4:30- Afternoon nap 4:30- Eat again 5-7- Play with mom and dad/Bath time with dad 7-7:30- Quick nap 7:30- Eat again 8-9:30- Fussy time/Walk around with mom 9:30- Last feeding 10- Off to bed
This is basically what it looks like. Eat-Wake-Sleep. She eats every 3-3.5 hours now. And now that she is sleeping through the night she will progress to eating every 4 hours which will be AWESOME!
She went to the doctor yesterday for her 2 month checkup which really was more like her 2.5 month check up. She is 11 lbs. 11 oz. and only 22 inches long. She has already gained 75% of her weight (they need to double their birth weight by 6 months, she was 6 lbs. 5oz. when she was born), but she is considered short because she is only in the 5 percentile of height. No worries though Dr. Hester says, she is a healthy baby girl. She also got her first round of shots. It was so sad and she cried and was upset after, but she went to sleep and woke up just fine. She hasn't run a fever, so she feels fine I think. She just wanted to sleep a little more yesterday afternoon so we let her sleep.
I apologize for no pictures, but I forget to take pictures on our actual camera. I am going to become better at it, promise! I will upload another video soon. Just her playing and smiling. Hopefully I will write before January 1, but don't hold me to it! It's Christmas and I will be super busy!
