About Me

My photo
I am a 29 year old teacher of fourth grade. My husband and I began TTC in March of 2008. We conceived our first month, but unfortunately it only ended in an early miscarriage. 8 months later we finally conceived again, and she was our take-home baby! Norah Jane was born on July 16, 2009. 7lbs 0oz 19" long and amazing. We recently had our sweet baby boy, Miles! He was born on June 12, 2013 at 3:37pm, weighing in at 8lbs 4oz, 20 inches long, and PERFECT! We are loving every minute of parenthood (even the frustrating minutes!). This blog is an attempt to chronicle the baby steps, foot steps, leaps, bounds, and milestones of this journey.

H1N1 and a newborn

I found out today that three of my students are out because they've been diagnosed with H1N1... freaking fantastic. I cannot begin to understand why they aren't shutting down the school. We have over 6 cases in our school alone. Re freaking diculous. What the heck am I supposed to do? If she catches it, she could die... there's no way her little body could handle it. I am so mad at the school system right now.

2 Months!

I can't believe I have a two month old... in fact, she is nine weeks today! I can't get over how much I totally and utterly and in love with this girl, it is like no feeling I've ever had before. :)
I especially love this girl from what she did last night. She... wait for it... slept almost six straight hours! Yes! Not kidding! We put her to bed around 9:30ish, and she didn't wake up until almost 3:30! Then she ate, then fell back asleep, woke up at 5:30, then fell back asleep again until 7:10, which is after I left for work. I ended up getting around 5 1/2 to 6 hours of sleep... amazing!! :)

So her 2 month appt was awful, but I'll talk about that later. Her stats at two months are:

10 lbs 7oz (up from 7lbs at birth)
22 inches (up from 19 at birth)
head is measuring on track
She's meeting all of her milestones right now
She's gorgeous! (ok, so that wasn't in the exam, but still!)

That's all I have time for right now.
