Spring Break 2014!

This past week was spring break.  I am going to recap all week in one post.

Day 1 & 2 ~ These days were exciting for me because I was able to start a new journey (again) with Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital.  As part of the hiring and starting to work process, I had to attend hospital orientation on these two days.  After being there previously (with a 1 year break) for nearly 5 years, this was just a big review for me.  I love this hospital!  It truly is one of the best places I have ever worked.  I am so glad I was given the opportunity to come back with my people!  I work my first shift on the 25th!!
Day 3 ~ This was Lauren's actual birthday!  We took Rachel and Hannah to "school" and then we had a day for just the two of us.  We went to Rainforest Cafe at the Grapevine Mills Mall.
That is her yearly birthday lunch pick.  It was CRAZY crowded because it was spring break and after waiting for 40 minutes, I realized that I am a Landry's Club Member and…

She Turns 5!!

Why is 5 such a hard age on a momma!?  *cue the tears

Five years ago this very night I was getting ready to go to bed the last time as a momma of one baby! I was going to meet my 2nd baby girl after a LONG anticipated wait in the hospital.  I had spent 14 days in the hospital waiting for this girl to make her entrance and she was going to.  After a dose of Ambien, I was out and slept the night away to get up SUPER early for the 5:30 am induction.

My labor was uneventful.  I got my epidural early and I was not in much pain at all.  I started pushing and after about an hour and a half, that VERY LARGE baby girl entered the world in all her glory!  We have never been the same since! :)  I got to hold her immediately and it was awesome...something I did not get to experience with Rachel's birth.  My first question was, "What does this baby weigh?"  She looked gigantic to me!!  She was 9 lbs, 9 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long!!…
