Three Years Ago

Three years ago this week I was eagerly awaiting the birth of my second born, middle child - my Little Lauren Elizabeth who was everything BUT little when she was born!!! Here is a picture of me from this time three years ago in the hospital on bed rest.

I had privileges to go outside for 15 minutes a day! It was glorious! The weather was starting to get pretty and I was itching to go somewhere besides that bed!!! I cannot believe that it has been three years and I have had ANOTHER baby since then. I will post more about my sweet Lauren closer to her birthday but I would not have traded one of those 14 days of hospital bed rest for that child!! She is my favorite almost three year old!! :)

Four Months




Hannah! You are four months old!! I cannot believe how fast it has gone by. I still vividly remember being happily pregnant with you. Now we have had you for these four months and we wouldn't trade it for anything!

I am thinking you weigh around 18 pounds and will guess that you are about 27 inches long. We go to the doctor on Thursday and will know for sure.

You are an eating champ! You nurse in the morning, take 3 6 1/2 ounce bottles during the day every 3 1/2 hours, nurse in the evening and some bottle to top you off before bed. You aren't excited about nursing anymore and get mad if it isn't coming fast enough!

You wear size 2 diapers and we are transitioning to size 3. You wear 3-6 month clothes.

This month you have stopped being swaddled and are now on a sleeping schedule. You go to sleep at 7:30, wake up usually once a night but go back to sleep. You normally wake up between 5-6 to eat but I make you wait until 6:30. You will start cereal this week!!!

This past month you had your first ambulance ride, short stay in hospital, and first breathing treatments. You had RSV for the 2nd time. You were a sick baby girl but you are all better now except for a stuffy nose that you seem to have constantly no matter what I do!

Mommy has been obsessed with buying you clothes and has bought you so many smocked outfits lately!!! I just cant get enough of the bubbles!!! Can't wait for spring/summer!!!

You are my 3rd baby girl but I love you just the same as my other two!!! Your smile and giggles make my day complete and I love your sweet snuggles! You are a challenge and very high maintenance but I need someone to keep me on my toes and you have deemed that your responsibility! :) I love you Hannah Grace and I will always!!

New Look!

Looky looky at my new blog design!!! Isn't it wonderful?! I love it! Thanks to Jenn at Munchkinland Designs! Go check her out. Her button is on the left! I have traditionally done my own blog designs but I just don't have time anymore. I am hoping that the new layout will motivate me to blog more! I love blogging but just can't find the motivation sometimes and I don't have many followers so I don't feel like anyone even reads it. BUT...I love the new layout and will try to visit more often! Until next time...
