About Me

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.

3 months old today!

Ok, I'm a mom... I have no time to write in a blog!! :) Seriously, I have been so busy, it is unreal. From the time I get up in the morning, until the time I go to bed, to all through the night, I am always doing something. So, the blogging had to be on the back burner. I'd like to give a quick update of my sweetness now though since I am on Fall Break as of today.

Norah is three months old today!! (I tried to take a picture, but by the time I got to the camera, she'd fallen asleep...I'll take pictures tomorrow)

Sleeping through the night you ask? HAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAAA...no. Still waking at least twice a night. We've got it down to where I usually get the first shift and H gets the second, so it's not terribly bad. I still cannot wait until it happens though.

Eating well? Oh yeah! She was 11 lbs 11oz at her last appt, which was a week ago exactly. She had an appt because her double ear infection never fully healed and came back... poor baby looked and acted so pitiful.

Rolling over you ask? YES! She rolled over for the first time a week ago. It was awesome! I had her doing tummy time on her activity gym mat and I noticed that she was shaking her booty like crazy. I looked at H and my sister and said, "Um, guys, Norah is about to roll over." We all watched, and within 30 seconds she rolled over! I thought it was a fluke, so I put her on her belly two more times, and two more times she rolled! She's done it several times since, too! It is adorable. She gives this look like, "What the HECK just happened?!" :)

Head control? She's almost got complete head control! She holds that thing up like crazy. It is so cute!

Anything else fun? Yes, of course. She JUST started playing in the bathtub as of yesterday. I had her in her infant tub, which is dark blue, then I put a rubber ducky in the water. She stared at it, followed it with her eyes, and kicked it! Then she followed it with her eyes and kicked it again, then again and again. It was great! She also did the same thing tonight!

Norah is just amazing. She is obviously changing week to week, and subtly changing day to day. I wish she'd stop growing so fast... she's my sweet sweet baby girl, and I love her like crazy. H is also amazing. He's the most incredible father... he loves her like crazy, which makes me love him even more. :)
