In her crib...

Well, I finally did it.
Tonight at 9:00, I put Brinley to sleep in her crib.

I hate it :(

I was just talking with friends this week about how I am not ready and I like having her next to me...guess I jinxed myself because the past 2 nights I have woken up to her fussing and she has completely turned herself sideways in her bassinet. I'm afraid she is going to hurt her neck or something so in her crib she went. She fussed...a lot. I gave her the paci and she finally fell asleep. Her crib is elevated so she's not laying flat, we had to put books under the mattress to raise it some. So she has to lay in one of those positioner things so she doesn't fall to the side. Her room is cold which is part of the problem, I need to get some type of heater in there so she'll be more comfortable. My sweet little boopah. Getting so big so fast...I hope you sleep amazing in there tonight!!!! I on the other hand will probably sleep NONE because I'll be checking on you all night long!

I love my little monkey...

Sick Of Snow!







So...I got up at 12 and 4 to feed my little monkey and just stayed up after the 4:00 because I have to leave for work at 5:45. I just looked outside and there is so much snow...AGAIN! UGH...so over it! This has seemed like the longest winter for some reason! Poor Alan went to sleep on the couch because his throat is hurting him terribly, he is going to the Doctor at 10:30 I'm so afraid he might have strep so I don't want him around the baby. He sounds awful. His parents are in town too, they came on Wednesday night and met baby girl for the 1st time! We'll see what the Doctor says today...I'm on my own antibiotic right now for bronchitis...come on SPRING!

Poor Brinley seems a little under the weather too. She has a runny nose (mostly at nighttime) and spit up with every bottle yesterday :( Wish I didn't have to work today so I could watch her but I know she's in great hands with her Nana...poor baby girl.

However...I can't WAIT to buy her some fun clothes for summer haha ;) Ok well gotta finish getting ready for work just wanted to complain about the snow, have a good day! I'll post some pics too of course ;) They are Brinley's 3 month photos taken by Tiffany Ann Photography...I HEART THEM!!!

SO behind!












So...I'm SO behind on posts I feel bad! I will get better from here on out :) So on Valentine's Day my precious girl turned 3 months old! I can't believe how fast it's going!

She is doing much better with her reflux, the Zantac seems to really be helping. She does go through a rough patch every evening but we try and entertain her the best we can and it helps.

She is eating 5.5 ounces every 3.5-4 hours. She refuses to finish a bottle if she poops in the middle of it lol....she goes to bed every night between 8:30 and 9:00 depending on bottle time and wakes up twice a night to feed. However, last night she woke up but I patted her butt a little and rocked her some and she fell asleep for 2 extra hours...miracle!

At her shot appointment she weighed 11 lbs 1 oz and was 22.5 inches long. She has THE cutest baby legs I've ever laid my eyes on :)

She is such a sweet girl. She smiles all the time now (especially for Alan and Me :) and is such a joy. Morning is her favorite time. She loves her bath too! I am so thankful for her everyday....

Hope everyone is doing well, let me know if anyone reads this lol! ;) and COME ON SPRING I wanna dress her in cute outfits that show off her little legs haha ;)
