8 weeks

2 MONTHS! time does fly!  Not much has changed in the past week on the home front, but we've gotten back on our regular sleeping and eating schedule.  Layla has been coming to Madison's softball practice and has been really good.  That's a good sign since our schedule is going to just get crazier starting next week.  She's a baby on the go!

Confession. Or a rant....whatever you want to call it.

This really has nothing to do with the girls or any of us really.  Just me and a little rant I would like to go on.  I NEED MORE ROOM!  I love my house, but I'm starting to feel like Alice in Wonderland when she's in the room that gets smaller and smaller until she can barely fit.  There are days that I feel like I can't get away from the growing piles of laundry or the dish washer that seems to always need to be unloaded.  Sometimes I just don't want to look at it even though in the back of my mind I still know it's there.  Or to get away from everyone yelling across the house because it's small enough to do that.  I want a giant table that can fit 12 people so we can have giant get togethers (a girl can dream...right?) A basement to escape from the world in.  But mostly, I want a house where we can have spare bedrooms...yes when people come to visit we have plenty of room.  I hate that when we have the grandparents or any family over they have to either get a hotel or sleep on the couch.  I HATE IT!!  HATE IT!  HATE IT!  HATE IT!  (Can't you just see me stomping my feet and throwing an absolute tantrum?)  It seriously bothers me!  To no end.  But I keep getting shot down on the idea of looking for a bigger house.  I thought that I would be able to wait another couple years like we had planned, but I may get committed before the end of that time period.  I guess if that happens everyone can just visit me there.  Ha!!

7 weeks

This past week we've seem to go backwards in our sleeping pattern.  We were sleeping about 6 straight hours at night or until I would have to wake her up because I felt like my boobs were about to explode.  Not this week though!  We've been waking up as much as every 2 hours which makes for a grumpy mommy in the morning.  That and we aren't able to sleep in anymore since Madison started school.  I think she's just plumping up and getting ready to go through another growth spurt....only time will tell though.

6 weeks

6 weeks and growing!  We had our month check up at the doctor earlier this week and we are now measuring 21 inches long and we are weighing 11 lbs and 7 oz.  Layla is starting to realize that she has a voice and has started cooing and blabbering a little.  She is also recognizing our faces and she will smile at us.  Her personality is starting to show!

5 wks

At 4 weeks (forgot the photo), Layla has already learned how to roll over!  I know, it's hard to believe....but I'll post the evidence soon.

At 5 weeks, we slept for the first time, 7 hours straight!  Oh....mommy was sooo happy the next day.  We have also made the transition to her nursery and she's doing very well.  She's also went through an obvious growth spurt!  :)
