Hello 4 Months Old! I feel like I say this every month, but this has been a BIG one.
After weeks, and weeks, and weeks of trying Hadley is FINALLY taking a bottle. We watched so many videos, looked up so much info, tried so many different nipples/bottles, cried SO many damn tears. Just to find out that she likes the Dr. Brown bottles that we originally tried. However, she likes to lay on the couch and eat aannnndddd the temperature of the bottle needs to be just right as well. She sure isn’t high maintenance. Lol She also started teething this last month. She is droolin’ like a fool! Hadley has started reaching for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, it makes it v. Hard to hold such a wiggle worm. She is obsessed with my moms dog right now. At her four month checkup the weighed her at 15 lbs! She is getting bigger and stronger everyday. Her personality is really starting to come out. I can’t wait to learn more about her!
The big sis is back in school. She is loving making new friends, and playing outside. She is very excited for Halloween, She wants the whole family to dress up as My Little Pony Characters, That should be interesting. That is also the theme of her birthday party coming up in just a few short months. As far as being a big sis goes, she is still the best. I can tell there are times when she is frustrated by the baby. But, I can also see how much she loves her already. We do need to work on our sharing skills, which will have to come with time. Kennedy and I started doing some daily affirmations which has become our special time together.
I started going back to work this month. So far, I’ve only been working part-time. But, tomorrow I start back full-time again. It is such a bittersweet feeling. I’m excited to have some me time, but I know there are things I will miss out on. One of the things that I’m most nervous about is being able to keep my milk supply up. I haven’t had any issues so far, but I know from experience the pump just isnt the same as that one-on-one time with your babe. I feel the most nervous about leaving Kenny home alone with the girls for most of the day. I know from these last few months, its hard not having a partner there to help you out. Especially when you’re running on minimal sleep. I know that everything will work out though, it always does.
I am so excited for my favorite time of the year… FALL! I can’t wait to take the girls to do all of our favorite things. Thanks for keeping up with my crazy little family.. until next time.
