Yes we are still alive!

Yes we are still alive, sorry for the lack of posting.. It is hard to get online with a 3 month old who can't decide if she wants to nap or not..

Can you believe my baby girl is already 3 months old? It is crazy how time fly's.

She is the best baby. Well Since it has been almost 2 months since I posted last I have a lot to catch up on.

 She Turned 2 months old.

We went on a walk on the first nice day outside..

She had her First Easter, and Mommy tortured her with a Huge Flower Headband.. Though she really did not mind it..

She can make the funniest faces and she loves to smile.. And she looks just like her Daddy.. except her eyes.. She still *so far* has mommy's blue eyes..

She has daddy wrapped around her little finger, 

She is now a tummy time Champ, She could hold her head up really early, but now she is holding her self up really well.

and recently she turned 3 months old! I can't believe she is 3 months already. She is still a little peanut, just now starting to fit in 0-3 month clothes and most 3 month clothes. It's time to pack away some of the newborn sizes to make room for her bigger stuff. Which is sad and happy at once..

She is still tiny, her last doctors appointment at 2 months she was 8 pounds 7 oz. She has to be close to 10 pounds now, she def grew and feels heavier, She does not go to the doctor again until the end of may so I won't know for sure until then.

She really is a good baby though. She loves her sleep just like her momma, She is now sleeping in her own crib at night, and gets up maybe once to eat then right back to sleep. And sometimes she sleeps almost right through the night. 

She eats anywhere from 4-6 oz. And has started to baby talk, which is just adorable. As soon as I get the video downloaded from my phone I will upload it..

The Fisher Price factory is in our town, and a friend takes her kids there. She suggested I send Leighla's picture in and see. So I did and they have called her twice in one week to model for them. She could be picked to be on a box or in an online add. If she makes either a box or the add I will be sure to post the link to go see. 

She was amazing at it, even though all she had to do is lay there and look at something. The best part is when they call her in to take her photo they give her a $50 gift card to the Fisher Price store if they end up using her or not. So far she has made $100 in toys! Mommy and Daddy get to go pick them out.

So all in all being a Mommy is amazing and everything I thought it would be. Sure we have rough days babies can not be happy all the time, but I would say the Good far out weigh the bad.. I will try to update more now that she decides that naps are pretty good..

Unfortunately I have to go back to work this week.. As soon as I find a job that is.. My unemployment has run out and unfortunately we need the 2 incomes to survive. I have been with her every day since she has been born so I am pretty sad to have to leave her now and miss seeing her learn new things everyday..

I really wish I could just stay home with her.. but I can't at least my mom is watching her so she does not have to go to daycare. and Damien's mom will watch her when she can. Unfortunately when Leighla was about 3 weeks old her Fiance had a brain Aneurism which was pretty bad, They caught it before it burst but the surgery did a lot of damage and he is def not the same and needs 24/7 care. He is getting there slowly but it will be a long haul.

His mom has a lot on her plate right now with his care, She is defiantly doing her best.. we also got another baby in the family. Damien's Younger Brother had a little boy, So Little Anthony James (AJ) has joined the family. It will be fun to have the babies grow up together.. Christmas should be a fun time this year, with 2 babies in the mix.

Ok since this is long enough I will go for now.. But promised more updates soon!!

<3 Shelly ... and Leighla
