There has been a lot going on the past few weeks so I decided it was time to give an update! The title tears, tears and more tears is EXACTLY what has been going on....for me that is!!! HA! Here are the updates:
-Avery had her 2 month check-up with Dr. W last Monday! She weighs 12.9lbs and is 24 inches long! She is in the 95% on both height and weight! She is a healthy little baby!!! She also had to get 2 shots at this visit. I made Jamie come with me to this visit because I knew she was going to get the shots and I didn't want to have to be the one to hold her still! Anyways, so Jamie held her as she got her shots and she screamed for a second with each one. Hearing her "pain" cry just absolutely broke my heart because I had never heard it before, so I was crying like a baby!!! Avery is smiling afterwards and i was trying to regroup! HA!
-Because I knew I was going to be a basketcase putting A in daycare I decided to go ahead and do a few "trial run" days to help me adjust to things before my first day back at work. I am so blessed to be able to leave her with women I know and trust and that has been helpful! But even dropping her off and trying to leave her...I cried like a baby! AGAIN! She was smiling in her carseat and they were comforting me!! She ended up doing good and we have gone a few other times and I haven't cried, until yesterday! Yesterday she rode in the car with her grandmother for the first time (she hasn't ridden in the car with anyone else without me being there!) and I was a nervous wreck and again...I cried! I never knew being a mommy could bring sooo many fears and tears!! I have never been a very nervous person, never really worried about anything and now it is a whole new story! I am worrying myself sick...literally! I hope this gets better soon!!!!
-Updates on Daisy: I am very glad that I did not give her away! I can already see her and A being best friends! If A is on the floor Daisy is there with her, when I give A a bath...Daisy watches! Anytime I'm holding A, Daisy is at our side! Its really cute!!!
-Lastly: We had A's first Vday!!! I've never really been a big fan of Vday, but even the small silly holidays are so much fun with a little one!!! I loooove buying her stuff! I'm ecspecially addicted to buying her any outfit that says "my first ______"! We already have one for St. pattys day and Easter!! They are just such cute keepsakes! I love it!!!!
-Avery is "talking" a ton now! Her smile, laugh and coos brighten my day!! She makes the cutest faces when she is trying to talk, you can tell she is going to have very animated facial expressions!! Jamie and I are so blessed to be her parents!!!!

2 months!!!!

This past week has been full of fun!!! First off, last weekend we went to visit Jason, Lisa, Luke and Grant! That was the first time we were able to meet Grant out of the hospital and be able to hold and love on him! This was also the first time they were all able to meet Avery! It was lots of fun seeing all of the kiddos together! We also had Patty Cakes made!! I can't wait to see how they turned out! Then we had the snow on Friday!!! This past weekend was also Avery's first Valentine's Day!! So we have had lots of firsts recently!!!
Avery updates: She weighs 12lbs 9oz and is 24 inches long. She can hold her head up and is beginning to push herself up when she is laying on her tummy!! She loves sucking on her thumb and bath time! She is sleeping thru the night normally 6-8 hours! She smiles, laughs, coos and tries to talk ALL of the time! She is such a happy baby...atleast until she gets hungry! =) We are so blessed!!! Every day is so much fun! We are loving every moment!!!
We also had her 2 month check up today! Her dr. said she still looks perfect! She is in the 95 percentile for weight AND height! She is a chunky little thing!!! Also, she had 2 shots today and had an oral vaccine. She seemed to like the liquid! When she got the shots I made Jamie hold her!! She cried with the initial prick and then would be fine! I however, cried the ENTIRE time!! It broke my heart hearing her cry because something hurt her! In the end I was worse off than she was!!! =)
