7 Weeks...

My baby girl got her 2 mth shots today
I thought I could handle it when I made the appt but when they drew her blood and took out her stitches a few weeks ago I was terrified and cried and hated seeing her crying like that
So I asked Kevin to go with me today, they had her stand by her head to help hold her down so she wouldn't throw a tantrum, I'm glad he was with me
She now weighs 9lb 4oz and is still very tiny
When I change her diaper on the changing table she loves to stare up at the wall and just smile at it. I know her grandmas are there talking to her and I love it. We always say good morning and good night to them.
She is now smiling and somewhat laughing. I love her little smiles, it's so cute.
She loves to watch tv, so we put her in the bassinet in front of the tv and she will watch it for hours
This is my last week with her before I go back to work next week
I am so sad but glad to be going back to work at the same time
I hate the fact that I'm paying someone else to take care of my daughter and raise her, when I should be doing it
I can't afford to stay home, really wish I could
Just going to enjoy every single moment I have with her these next few days and everyday after that!

Savannah 5 weeks

My sweet baby girl is 5 weeks old now
She is getting so big and last dr appt weighed 7 lbs 14 oz.
I just love sitting there and staring at her, I can't stop it
I have been with her 24 hours a day since the day she was born minus a few days here and there to run to the grocery store or last weekend I went to bingo with my mom
I love spending time with her but running on a few hours sleep I get irritated
She is still waking up every couple hours during the night but can sleep great during the day, I don't understand, it drives me crazy
I see myself getting irritated and getting mad at her, I can't get mad at her
I need to calm myself down before I get angry and take it out on her
I'm hoping to get her on a schedule before I go back to work in 2.5 weeks

I don't like it when people give me advice when I don't ask for it
When they sit there and tell me things and I know their only trying to help but I don't care
I'm one of those people that learn from their own mistakes so let me learn myself
The best is when people give me advice and they don't even have kids
Before I got pregnant I told myself that I will never complain about anything during my pregnancy and after the baby is born
I will take everything with a grain of salt and enjoy every single moment of it
I have waited so long to be able to experience this and I'm going to enjoy it
Women who get pregnant with no problems have no idea what us women who have problems getting pregnant go through
We long for this and will love our children even more than anyone who has no problems
I write this as I watch my baby girl swinging in her swing and I sit here and wonder what she's going to be like when she grows up
What is her voice going to sound like when she starts talking?
What kind of sassy attitude is she going to have? Cuz we all know coming from me she's going to be sassy :)

Almost a month old...

My precious little girl is almost a month old. Within her first month of life she has been through a lot.

3 days old she had surgery to remove a tumor and her tailbone
She stayed in the NICU until she was 8 days old
She is now eating almost 4 oz every 3-4 hours
She loves to sit there and stare at you and she definitely recognizes mine and daddies voices
She loves to shove her fist in her mouth to tell you she is hungry (it's the cutest thing)
She has peed and pooped on both daddy and I (that, not so cute)
She still has her stitches but they are clearing up pretty good
She loves her swing but getting used to her bouncer

We go back to the doctor tomorrow to make sure she has gained enough weight to satisfy the doctor. With her being in the NICU she didn't eat at one point for 3 days due to her surgery and being on the IV. But now she eats like she will never eat again.

I finally got her newborn pics done and will post some as well as her other pics. I'm ordering her birth announcements this week. Need to get those out!

Savannah is crying her little heart out, it's feeding time!
