4 Months Old

Oh my gosh, I can't believe that she is almost 4 months old now. She is getting so big and doing so much now. She was 6 lbs 7 oz at birth and now is 10 lbs 13 oz. It's not as much as the doctor would like her to gain but the dr is also not that worried. She is growing and looks very healthy so. She is also 23 inches long now. We started her on cereal and she is loving it. She just gobbled up all of the 2 tablespoons we made for her today. We also had a great day today. Barley and uncontrollable crying. She was a very happy baby today. And she also slept through most of the night. Only woke up at 5 am for a diaper change and a bottle then right back to sleep.
On another happy note. We got to see R for the first time in 7 months. It was so good to see him. We haven't seen him because his grandmother was not letting us and we were not sure why. But that seems to have passed and we were able to get him and we will get him again in 2 weeks. We took him to the Lo.wes building workshop for kids and then we took him bowling. He had a blast and he absolutely loves Aydan. We are very happy about that. We thought he might be a little jealous but her didn't seem to be.
On the weight loss front, I weigh tomorrow to see how much I have lost this last week and then Our finale weigh in is next Tuesday. I'm hoping that I won the pot because I could really use the hundred dollars but even if I don't, I'm losing weight and that all that matters.

Weight Loss

Well in almost 2 weeks I have lost almost 5 pounds. I'm very happy with this start. I am about the same as last time. 2.5 pounds a week. Hoping it stays on the same trend this time.

In the home news, little Aydan had R.S.V. She is on breathing treatments every 4 hrs until her chest clears up. Let me tell you, she hates them! She screams the entire time and tried to push the mask away. My poor baby. I feel so bad for her. Here is a picture of the one time she fell asleep during one. The doctor said it could take weeks maybe 2 months for it to clear all the way up.

She's doing a little bit better every day on the crying front. Some days are definitely worse then others. Of course the last week has been bad, but she has been sick so. And just to give yall an extra treat here is a pic of her in her first skirt outfit with tights. They were a little big but she just looked so cute in them!

We knew it was inevitable but we have fallen sick. I have bronchitis and we are not sure what Aydan has. We will be taking her to the doctors today. She was coughing yesterday and now she is so hoarse. I feel so bad when she cries because she sounds so terrible. Hopefully she will get well soon.

Thank you for your kind words and support. The doctors think she has a case of colic. Shes getting a little better everyday and they think she might be starting to outgrow it. The only thing that seems to pacify her for any length of time it to be right up against you and your moving around. So we have been doing alot of baby wearing.

Also as a new year has started, so has hopefully a new me. Two years ago before we got pregnant with Shain, I went on a diet to lose weight. I lost almost 50 pounds in 7 months. When I got pregnant with him I gained 20 pounds in 16 weeks. Most of this came from being on bed rest almost the entire time and I could not exercise. After we lost him I gained 15 pounds. When we got pregnant again I gained a total of 16 pounds. Since having her I have added another 10. So I am not quite happy with my weight and its time to start to loose it. My goal is 50 by the end of summer.

An Update On Whats Been Going On

I have not forgotten you blogging world. I have not been in a very good spot the last few months and I did not want to put out all that negativity to you who read this. I didn't want to come off as ungrateful for my little one or anything like that. I love her so much but it has been a very rough 2 months. She smiles now but they are very far and few. When she is not happy and smiling she is crying. Non stop. And though she is doing better the last few days sometimes I feel as though I am not doing a good job of being a mother. That I am not doing something right. My honey tells me that I am and that this will pass and she will be much happier but i just don't see it yet. The light is too small at the end of the tunnel. But in my heart I know it will get better. So I am still here and I am keeping up with all of you. I will leave with some pictures of little Aydan.
