3 months.

My sweet, spitty baby.
You’re three months old today. We celebrated by going to Babies R Us and buying you a few new toys, and by redoing my blog while you helped by sleeping. It was a fun day for sure.
You’ve already grown out of half of your 3 month sleepers, and have officially graduated to the level 2 nipples offered by Dr. Brown. (Pretty awesome, huh?)
I’m sad to say that the three month anniversary of your birth also means that momma’s going back to work. Grandpa Mike had a couple trial Abbycare days in preparation the past few days. While I fully trust both him and Grandma Chris, I will more than likely cry every day that I leave you. In fact, today you cried while we were at the store, simply because you couldn’t see me. And I nearly cried when I realized what that meant.
So, another month under the belt. Another month wiser, for both of us.
Love you much,
Momma.

I’m getting an ultrasound tomorrow.

No, dear internets, I am not knocked up again, THANK YOU BABY JESUS.

Lately, the dreaded avocado episodes are back. Indeed they were triggered by guacamole consumption (so sue me) and now the old gallbladder is just acting like a bitch again and hurting me all the time.

I was almost fully convinced I wasn’t going to need any treatment for it after I had Abby because it seemed I could eat anything and everything I hadn’t been able to while it was acting up. But I hadn’t attempted the dreaded avocado. And then I did and then my gallbladder (AKA Vincent*) was all “OH NO YOU DI’ENT” and then I nearly died from pain.

So, I saw a loverly doctor today who scheduled me for an ultrasound of my jerky abdomen tomorrow morning at 8am (8 hours of no food beforehand?! They’d better start that thing at 8am ON THE DOT) to see if I’ve got some stones hanging out in there. I’m almost hoping there are, because the simple solution to relieve me of my pain is to yank the sucker out. She’d like to do it this week, if possible.

At first I panicked at the prospect of more time in the hospital, but in reality, as long as I don’t have to vaginally deliver my gallbladder I’m pretty sure this will be a walk in the park.

In other news, Abby will be 3 months old tomorrow and DEAR GOD I GO BACK TO WORK IN A WEEK. Unless they pull out Vincent. Then it might be a little longer before work.

So, until I post a tear jerker post about how my child is practically already a grown up, I bid you adieu.

*A note about my gallbladder being named Vincent. My dear e-friend Poeia helped me name it. Vincent seemed the best since it makes me think of Vincent Price and I can only imagine my gallbladder being devious and having an awesome pencil-thin mustache.

Hungry baby = fast post.

Hello internets.

Again, routine in the Abby house = not much excitement. However, MY MOTHER is coming to stay with us! Her flight gets in at 5-ish today, and she’s staying through the weekend (my dad is driving up on Friday). The hubs and I keep saying “they’re going to shit when they see how much she’s changed.” Like, at least once a day we say that. It’s getting ridiculous, but it’s so true.

Anyway, Abby and I will be at the airport to pick her up, and I’m hoping she blesses my mom with a big gummy smile. They’re still few and far between so when they happen it’s pretty monumental.

Other than that, I go back to work TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY. I am both excited and totally dreading that day at once.

Sorry there’s nothing funny to report with this post. Except maybe the fact that I smell like cat butt. Did I mention I didn’t shower yesterday?  Because I didn’t.

And…Abby just filled her diapers. The sheer force of her pushing out the poo made the pacifier in her mouth shoot across the room. THERE’S your excitement, internets. Enjoy.

This post is mostly for my mom…

…because she was getting sick of the guidos fist pumping every time she checked my blog.  Now you get to see a post addressed to you! And now everyone knows you’re not amused by The Situation. I’ll post your phone number for disagreeing fans later.

Not much is going on in the land of Abby and her unshowered mother. Routine is setting in, and so when I do things like wash dishes twice a day, do laundry and pick up the house while watching Bonnie Hunt and What Not to Wear…there really isn’t much worth blogging about.

It DOES sadden me that routine is finally settling in, and I’m going back to work in less than three weeks. I’m going to try to make the best of the rest of my time and make Abby learn as many tricks as possible so I don’t miss anything. She did give me a BIG smile yesterday morning when I went to her crib to get her up for the day. We’re still working on smiles. I think she’s just a little shy. Other than that, she’s lifting her legs up in the air all the time now, so we’re getting some assistance during diaper changes.

Hmmm…what else? I think that’s about it for now. I apologize for my lack of anything. I’m spending most of my time manning the Save Conan fanpage on Facebook.  (I’m so crabby with NBC that I could spit.) Wanna become a fan? Click here.

Let me pause for a moment to say…
