My baby is 5 months old!

How does that even happen? It seriously feels like Hailey was just born and she's just hit the 5 month mark... that's almost half a year!


At 5 months Hailey is pushing 20lbs... at her last doctor's appointment se was 27" long, she's sleeping through the night, eating cereal w/ fruit and veggies, just starting to sit up on her own... still working on the balance a little, but she's doing great.

Yesterday we went to Walmart (Boooooooo!) and we saw a guy that Daddy did some work for in the past. He saw Hailey and went on and on about what a pretty girl she is (thank you!!!!!) and he says "How old is she? A year?". Nope... our baby isn't even half a year yet but she is a little giant! She's definitely going to be ready for a big girl car seat sooner than later.

That's about all I've got for now... I will try to have something interesting for you over the next couple weeks. No promises =) Hopefully more pictures if nothing else!

Foster Turns 5!

Hailey’s cousin, Foster, had his 5th birthday party this weekend!

Hailey started off strong in the morning… she was in a good mood, happy baby, seemed to feel fine. Later was another story. Poor girl fell asleep on the way to the party and when she woke up mommy fed her and from then on she was spitting up like CRAZY… literally like never before and pretty fussy. My poor baby was not a happy camper. I felt really bad because she had a lot of people looking forward to seeing and meeting her.
The calm before the storm =)

And it begins…

The good news is, everyone had an awesome time! There was great food, family, drinks, a jump house… what’s not to like?

The birthday boy!

I would say Foster’s birthday was a “great success”!

My baby is 4 months old!

Good morning... No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth! LOL I am still here. Today I decided to skip the gym and play on the computer... something I don't get to do much anymore. Hailey is still passed out (I think), as is Daddy (because it's only 4:45am!), it's rainy and nasty outside and I know I will be kicking myself for skipping my run later but right now it feels so right =))

Sooo, what's new? My kid is 4 months old! How did this happen? I don't even know where the time has gone. She is growing up WAY too fast!

Since I have been back at work (boooooo) Hailey has been spending her days at my aunt's house. She's doing really good. Mommy may spoil her a little to much by holding her and smothering her with my attention when she is home, so some days she gives her auntie a run for her money. Other than that she is really good... my little social butterfly. She LOVES the other kids and that makes mommy very happy!

At 4 months old our girl weighs 16lbs 12oz and has grown to 27.5" long! She's a little giant. She's in the 95th percentile in height and weight.

We have suspected some teething for the last month or two but the pediatrician confirmed it at her 4 month appointment. Thank you Baby Orojel for helping us through the tough times =) Poor baby, I know that those teeth coming up probably hurt SO bad. She's been a really good sport. The pain seems to bother her most when she's tired and on the verge of sleep (which she fights!). The minute after I apply the Orojel she slowly lets her self drift off to sleep.

Other than that, the doc says she's right on track developmentally.  She's not quite rolling over yet, but I imagine she is going to have some abs of steel pretty soon. She's always trying to sit herself up from laying on her back. She's almost sitting up by herself. Still a little wobbly but getting stronger every day.

We tried feeding her cereal again a couple of days ago. She did better than the first time around but she still wasn't sure about it. I've been putting a little bit of the rice cereal in her bottle before I put her to bed and we have been getting a full nights sleep again =) I think her belly is ready for that little bit of extra food. She can only hold so much formula! We will keep trying with the cereal and keep ya posted.

Here are a few pics I've taken since the last post

I tried to do a little "photo shoot" myself... it didn't work out but I'm gonna keep trying! My model was amazing =)


Awww Roxy still gets some love

Look how sad poor Daisy is these days... she was so used to being the baby!

The cereal... 

She's not having it, yet!

And just for fun... 
He he... eyes wide open!
