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.

No no no no no no no. DO IT.

The 2 month check and a new skill.

Yesterday Abby had her 2 month checkup appointment, complete with shots.

Her new stats are 11 lbs 3ozs, and 24 inches tall. That’s TWO FEET TALL, people. Where does she get her towering height from? Certainly not her parents. Maybe my dad’s genes skipped a generation and she’ll be 6’2″.

Her shots went as well as could be expected. I felt horrible hearing her scream only to know she had 2 more to endure. But she survived, and so did I. And then she slept ALL DAY. Thus…last night didn’t go so well. She didn’t want to go to bed, and when she fell asleep she woke up at midnight, 4am, 6:30am, and that was that. We were up for the day. So now I’m doing my best to try to keep her stimulated and entertained so she sleeps tonight. Momma’s tired.

In my attempts to keep her awake – she’s learned a new trick.

She figured out how to bring the rattle up to her mouth AND CHEW ON IT. ISN’T THAT EFFING AWESOME?!  This kid – she’s got talent.

Hangovers and hepatitis shots.

Well, I survived NYE…barely. I drank as if I hadn’t stopped drinking for 10 months. MISTAKE. Also…having champagne be a large portion of my bevvy consumption was a mistake. And maybe that shot of tequila was a mistake too.

despite the face I’m making it was quite delish.

the midnight mooch


…and then this happened.

I woke up on Friday morning with the WORST HEADACHE EVER and heard the hubs reaching for something in a pill bottle. I shoved my hand in his face while managing the words “GIVE ME SOME.” I got Tylenol (what was left of the pregnancy stash) because we were out of Advil. Yet another sign of my lack of drinking. Christ, he could have given me his man vitamins and I would have been okay with it as long as I was taking SOMETHING.
I woke up a couple hours later headache free, but with the spins. We showered and headed to breakfast with friends where I nearly vomited about three times. I ordered toast and a fruit cup, managed to finish nearly all of it and felt a little better.  We then went to pick up Abby from the Grandparents and headed home for some good couch napping. Ahhh…New Years.
Anyway, my baby girl has her two month appointment tomorrow, complete with her first round of post delivery room vaccinations. ::insert scurred momma here:: I’m probably going to cry on the car ride home. That is, if they give her any shots at all. She’s been a little booger-y and cough-y for the past 12 hours. I’m hoping it’s just a fluke, but if she really IS sick, she might be skipping the shots this time around.
And today, I took this video. Pardon my squeaky voice. The hubs insists I should do voices in cartoons. I give a stern side-eye as a response to that comment.

My dearest Abigail,
Yesterday you turned two months old. On Christmas day, we dropped you off at the Grandparents house for the evening so we could have a party with all of our friends. Occasionally I’d look around our house wondering who was holding you, only to remember you were safe and soundly sleeping in a house a few miles away. When your father and I finally called it a night, we both agreed that we barely could stand that you weren’t here.
Saturday night, like I figured, you didn’t sleep through the night like you normally do. I got up around 3:30 when your fussing became too much and groggily fed you your bottle. That’s when I realized as much as I thought I’d hate not getting enough sleep and being woken up in the middle of the night…I absolutely love it. In fact, I prefer it. Staring at your beautiful face with only the orange glow of the light in your room is all I need to survive.
Love you much,
Mommy.
