So, Saturday starts vacation! Personally, I can't wait. It will be Emma's first vacation! First trip to OCMD! First time seeing the Ocean! I may cry :) We've been going to OCMD with my extended family since I was 2 weeks old. That means, this will be my 30th family vaca to OCMD in a row! There are anywhere from 15 - 30 of us every year. This year I think there will be about 17 ppl there? Actually a small turn out this year. My sister and her family won't be there for the first time! She just had baby girl #2, so it's just too much right now. (tear) Anyway, DH and I started packing last night. We already have our 2 biggest suitcases packed and we haven't even started on baby stuff. Unfortunately we are BOTH over packers, but at least that means neither one of us gets upset at the other for wanting to take everything but the kitchen sink. Yesterday DH woke up and could barely talk. Before having Emma he would REFUSE to go to the doctor, but fortunatel…
I don't think I officially posted "monthly" photos of Emma. I'm going to try and start doing monthly photos so its a little easier to compare. I can't believe she is a quarter of a year old already! Time flies when you're having fun. Here are months 1 - 3.
1 DAY OLD - 8lb 11oz
1 MONTH OLD - 10 lbs 1 oz
2 MONTHS OLD - 11 lbs 6.5 oz
3 MONTHS OLD - not weighed yet (but she's gotta be at least 12 lbs.)
Finally starting to look at the camera :)
Week #2 of daycare is lightyears easier than Week #1. When I say easier, I mean on me. She did great her first week and best feeling today was walking in and the teacher right away says "Hello Emma". It's the little things. She did have 2 blowouts yesterday. We've already gone through 3 of the 5 "spare" outfits we took to daycare, hahaha. At least I know it's not just me!
Yesterday DH took Emma to and from daycare so I could go to field hockey. I saw her at 7am and didn't se…
First and foremost, Emma slept for 10 HOURS LAST NIGHT! I woke up at 6am and she was still asleep, I didn't know what to do with myself. My alarm is set for 6:15 for the day and I normally have to wake her up, but that is because she has already gotten up at 3 or 4am for a feeding. I'm not complaining at all! I'm hoping it's the start of a trend, even though I must say I'm perfectly happy with the 7 - 8 hours she sleeps normally these days.
So today is the last day of her first week of daycare. I am very happy with everything so far.
Day #1 I called at 10 am and they said she was doing great. When i picked her up I could tell she had been crying. The teacher said she had just had a blowout and cried when she was getting changed. Beings that I've been in that exact same situation, I didn't really get that upset. When I picked her up she felt a little cold and she ended up spitting up al…
Just called daycare and talked to one of her teachers. She said Emma hadn't cried at all (yet). They gave her a bottle at 9:05 and she was currently in a bouncy chair. She said she'd call me if there were any problems.
I guess I can't ask for anything more right? I miss her like crazy (it's been 3 hours since I dropped her off), but fortunately I'm currently busy at work so I'm not going crazy.
I hope I don't squeeze her too hard when I see her, but no promises on the amount of kisses she will consume from mommy and daddy :)
Well, I've showered, packed my computer, packed the breast pump and accessories, layer out tomorrow's bottles, dried and straightened my hair and laid out my and Emma's outfits for tomorrow.
We've spent the last 87 days together and tomorrow I'm dropping my baby off at daycare tomorrow. I don't quite feel sad or nervous at the moment. Honestly just tired. I don't know what tomorrow will hold but thoughts and prayers of strength and confidence would be appreciated.
I know I'm doing a good thing for her and she will have many benefits to daycare. I know I'll be happy back at work, but I still with we could spend every day all day together for a while longer.
