Month 2

It feels like the second month went by like a blur! It's probably because we moved again.

She really packed on the baby chub! I have her two month appointment scheduled and I will let you know just how much she weighs!

She has consistently eaten 4 ounces every two hours for the first three weeks of the month, but finally jumped to three hours and 5 ounces at the start of week 8.

I am so thankful that I get three hours in between feedings. I am still tired from not getting a full nights sleep, but its better than before. I now feed baby at midnight, three and then six. I get Elena up for school at 7:15. It typically takes Allee about 15-20 minutes to eat. During the night I just have to be sure that I don't make too much noise and she just goes right back to bed. I make it a point to not rock her to sleep. I would rather that she not depend on my to be able to fall asleep. It has been good! I did the same thing with Elena. Allee is very good about self soothing. :)

This week or next Allee will be getting her shots. I will be sure to get pictures of that and I will post them here.

I plan on posting pictures of each week as soon as I can. The blogging app on my phone allows me to post text, but I need the PC to get the pictures in here. As soon as we have internet in our new place I will do that!

So yeah, baby girl is doing very well!!!

I am feeling so much more adjusted about having an infant! The first month was so much harder than this one. I am very thankful for that!

Well, I better go!


The following pictures are in order. Weeks 5-8.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 
I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.
I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area …
