So I think they give infants shots just to torture the mother a little bit more...are they trying to get us ready for the teenage years or what? But they told me on her four month and six month shots...she will cry a little but it won't be as bad! I still don't know if Dad will go to those or not! We'll see.... :)
ok that was a little vent....
I do feel like i am going in light speed and my head is just spinning sometimes. Mom usually takes Lyla a couple days to spend time with her and it helps me alot to have those couple of days to clean house...catch up on work stuff...and just sit in silence! I never ask her to take lyla she just wants to spend time with her!
My mom and I havent had the best relationship in the past and just here recently we have gotten back on talking terms...and i am glad we have....she loves lyla...and lyla loves her
she helped me alot through my pregnancy and labor...her and my step dad
I think that is why she loves to spend so much time with her...because it makes us close in a way...it's nice! It touches my heart to see them talk and dance.....and i wonder if she did that with me? How her and dad's relationship was....
You know you think your parents are real people until you grow up and realize that my mom had me younger than when i had Lyla....
anyway back on my subject ...i want to start keeping a journal, blog, or something on what i go through and do during the days that lyla is little so one day she can read this and see that her mom danced with her...her daddy danced with her...we sang together...read stories...she knows the nights I stood by her crib for hours just to make sure she was asleep before I left the room.
Everyone tells you that you just make it when they are little on no sleep...and i was so scared that i wasn't going to be able to stay up with her and do my best...but somehow you do! I don't know how....I called it new mommy adrenaline....that is my only way of explaining how i did it all!
Coming home from the hospital and trying to heal yourself up...doctor all your aches and pains...being so uncomfortable...and running to make bottles at the first hint of a sound is crazy ....but when you become a mommy...it all just seems natural! It put the scripture that God doesn't give you anything you can't bear into realization. I am extremely blessed because as soon as lyla came home she was a good sleeper!
I couldn't ask for anything more in my life right now!!
I have a wonderful husband....and beautiful daughter...a great job....helpful family and friends....and a good church to go to!!!
I just keep asking God to bless me....
Today Mom has Lyla...When she does keep her me and Gregg both call probably five times a day to check on her. I am sure mom gets tired of talking on the phone but I miss her when she isn't here. me and mom were joking today that she only poops at grandma's house...because i haven't changed a poopey diaper in who knows how long! My mom keeps her while i go to work and after work i go up there and get her...and everyday when i go up there and see her it seems like she has grown so much!! Lyla, grandma and grandpa went to town today shopping then came back home and waited on Uncle Colton to get off the school bus....
Lyla loves her Uncle Colton and her Uncle Colton loves his Lyla
they are a good pair!!! I almost cry everytime I see colton play with her....because i remember when he was that little...i had a big big big hand in taking care of him and to see him love her so much ...chills me!!
I hope i can keep this up....i would love to one day read these to lyla!!! I think with the way the world is changing so fast...it would be something to treasure!
Our make-shift TV stand: since we have moved we are trying to figure out how to place our furniture....we had the coffee table in between the couch and sofa but it just seemed to cramped...so we made it into a TV stand....now we don't have to buy a tv stand!! Ain't I smart? Did you notice that Gregg's tires were still in the living room.........THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO LEAVE SATURDAY!! we'll see!
Orajel:This was my life saver over the weekend....when my tooth broke off...this is the only thing that saved me...so thank god for orajel!!!
Daisy Jo: This is just a random picture of my first child sleeping....it is what she does best!!
My 2 VIP's: This was such a cute picture of Gregg and Daisy I had to put it on here....she has got her head tilted the same way he does....like father like daughter.....those two are something else!!
Close up: I love these pictures of Daisy....she is so crazy ...i guess the flash makes her wonder what it is..but she loves it...
Yeah...these are my husbands new wheels and tires for his truck! And they are sitting in my living room floor until he decides to put them on.....DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG THAT CAN BE? Goodness!
But really ECERS gives you so many rules and standards by which your classroom has to set up by. They tell you how many books you need in the library center and everything...it is nerve racking!
Well the technical advisor came and scored our classroom and we passed!!! YAY!!
so our boss went out and got us these balloons and some candy!!! Yummy!!
So i am a little behind....
but Monday we had our big ultrasound to see what the baby was...can you guess what we found out? LOL!!
Yep it is a girl!!
She showed us exactly what she was as soon as we turned the monitor on...that was the first image we got!!
We wanted to try to guess and see if we could get it right but there was no mistaking...the ultrasound tech even showed us how to determine whether it was a boy or a girl...you know sometimes they tell you that is like an 80% chance it is a girl....so I asked just to make sure and she said 100% .....no doubt...it was a girl!!
First I have to say THANK YOU GOD!!!
You don't even know how much I prayed that the baby would just turn right so we could see what it was...so I am so glad that we were just able to find out.
So what was so funny was that when the ultrasound tech said it was a girl my mother in law screamed and jumped up and down (she really wanted a girl) - my mom screamed - the baby kicked - it startled the ultrasound tech - and Gregg was just kind of standing there speechless!!
It was a crazy moment!!!!! But one that I will never forget and will cherish for the rest of my life.
I was suprised that Gregg could actually see what was on the ultrasound monitor....he picked out her heartbeat and her hands! He told the tech to zoom in on her feet to see if her toes were like mine (my middle toe is longer than my big toe and Gregg makes fun of me all the time). Well when she did...she has my feet!!! Gregg says "Oh Crap!!"
When the monitor first came on Gregg said "Woah!"
so many memories happened that day!!
I can't wait to be a mommy and see Gregg become a daddy!
and see what Lyla Faye Brewer looks like!! (hopefully like me)
So I had dr appt 3 Monday and your daddy got to go with me!!
This was the first one for him to go to! It was just a check up but the dr brought in that thing and let your daddy listen to your heartbeat. He was excited...your heartbeat was loud. Dr Haraway said your heart rate was about 154...which means that the old wives tale about the baby’s heartrate being over 140 means you might be a girl!
We made the appt for the Big ultrasound to see what you are going to be...it is March 24 so we will see if that old wives tale is true! Now you just have to turn the right way so we can see. That way daddy and I can get your room ready!
I thought I wanted a girl ...I think because I lost your sister Natalie....but the further along I get I don’t think I will prefer one over the other as long as you get here and healthy!
I have almost past the point of when I lost Natalie which might not mean anything but it means alot to me for some reason. Here lately I have been so nervous over everything...knowing that this is close to when my water broke with Natalie and i don't wanna lose you.
I already love you so much! We have discussed a few names.....so far we have Levi Greggorey if your a boy and Lyla Faye if your a girl.
Well it is time for me to head to chuch so i had better get going!!!! Please don't kick my bladder while we are praying and make me run to the bathroom!
