1-Month old Yesterday and 1st boo-boo

Morgan inside her sling while attending Hunter's assembly at school Friday.  She loves it!!!

We also stopped by to say hi to daddy and all his co-workers at the office. 

My little girl turn a whole month old yesterday.  :( 

She had her doctor's check-up as well and was a very big and brave girl.  First of all they wanted a urine sample so they took this plastic bag that had sticky stuff on the top opening of it and stuck it.... (well there where you collect "urine").  It was surely a funny sight to see this on my little angel.

Then they measured her height (21 1/2), her head (forgot) and weight (9 lbs 9 oz). As of now she is in the 75 percentile of height and just a little under 75 percentile in weight.  She is growing perfectly.  The pediatrician listened carefully to her heart again and still does not hear the murmur and says he wouldn't be surprised if it has closed by now.  

What we didn't know going into the doctors today was that she would have to get her first shot.  It was so sad to watch.  As I held her arms and talked to her and as the needle makes it's way through her flesh in her right thigh.  She blinks as to think about what it was she just felt before letting out the biggest cry ever to the point where she couldn't catch her breath.  I pick her up and sooth her and with in 30 seconds she's fine and looking very cute with her bugs bunny band-aid. 

Oh and we also learned that my little girl is in fact colic.   For she is perfect and calm all hours of a full day except for the hours of 9-12 pm at night. So we switched her to a new formula Enfamil LIPIL (Nutramigen).  WOW, is this stuff expensive!!!  I have to say though that in 4 days I have seen a big difference in her.  

We also watched this video called "The Happiest Baby on the Block" in which I posted a picture to the right of my blog.  It talks about the five S's to calming down any baby.  I was one of the parents that thought my child didn't like to be swaddled, but last night we tried 3 of the 5 S's, swaddling, laying her on her side and swinging.  Guess what? My daughter went right to sleep last night at 9:00 pm (the first for her) and slept all night, only to wake every 3- 4 hours to eat.  WOW!!! Each time I got up to feed her, after a burp, I would swaddle her back up, put her on her side and swing her in my arms. She had never fallen asleep so fast.  I have to say I am impressed.

Anyways....here are some pictures of her first boo-boo!!! 

Mother's Day pictures (cont'd)

Happy Mother's Day to ME!!!

I had the best mother's day ever yet this year.  I got to spend the day with my two favorite little people (Hunter and Morgan).  Actually I got to spend the day with all my favorite people, my two kitty's, my husband and my kiddos.  Gosh that still sounds weird to hear the plural part of kiddo's.  Yes I have two children, but it just seems like a dream.  I am so blessed man!!!

First Hunter came home on Friday after I attended his assembly at school in the morning.  He was awarded "Citizen of the Week" award.  (will post pics soon)  Once I got home he gave me a present with a card that he made at school for me.  It was a very pretty and sweet card and my gift was a hand painted picture frame, in which the artiest he is painted a picture of Hunter and mommy in it.  Its beautiful and I love it very much.  Also note the beautiful hand colored of the wrapping.

Sunday morning my day started out with my husband actually taking both morning feedings with Morgan.  SWEEEETTTT!!!   So I got in a couple more hours of much needed sleep.  Then he made me a HUGE breakfast.  After that we went to Hunter's hockey game and then invited some friends over to the pool and ordered some pizza.  Then he gave me cards from the kids, himself and a gift receipt for a "SPA DAY".  SWEEETTTT!!!! (again) 

During the day I got Happy Mother's Day text from a ton of awesome friends and a flower delivery from my husband.  I also got a card from my parents and flowers from Marks parents.  So I started my little collection of mother's day gifts on the counter so that I could take pictures of it all.  

Although the plan was to at some point get a picture of my entire family together on this day, with the baby, the plans, the activies.... it just got too hectic.  So Mark was able to get at least one picture of me and both my kids at some point before the day came to a full end.
