It doesn't taste very good
kicking and screaming
Just lying around...
My mom sent us some pictures that were on her camera. There are some really cute ones from the hospital, I think. I'm so glad we're out of there though! I loved the help and everything, but nothing beats your home. Although I'd be a lot happier if our home was located back in WA. Oh well. Tanner has started school now and I'm pretty sure he likes it so far. Which is really good. He only has one class on Friday, so he'll be home pretty soon. I guess he wants to go shooting with Luke. That sounds pretty fun, especially since we haven't done anything "fun" or on our own since she was born. You know what I mean... I think our little Layla is VERY fun, but it's just not the same when you're staying home all day every day. Only two more weeks and she can be out and about with us! And I can go back to church again!! I feel so inactive! I was on bedrest before she was born, and now that she's here, it's more waiting. That's okay though, I want her to be super healthy before all those germies get her! So anyway, Tanner is most likely going shooting and I'll be staying home with cutie pie.
Yesterday Tanner let me get out of the house all by myself. It was so weird!! I went to the bank, deposited some checks, and then went to this clothing store to see if I could get a few new shirts. I found myself worrying SO much about what Layla was doing back at home. I kept imagining Tanner stressed out to the max, rocking her and singing her, walking up and down the stairs trying to console her. I kept texting Tanner asking if things were still okay. Each time I'd get a reassuring "Yes, We're fine!" It was weird too, because once I got home and saw that she was completely content in Tanners arms I got a little sad. I almost wanted her to miss me, to cry when I left. That sounds so psycho I know... but still. I then started to think about how if I were to die, she'd never miss me or remember me! Horrible thought I know... but my mind was wandering big time. Tanner reassured me that he'd talk to her everyday about me, which was nice to hear. Anyway, I've got a hungry baby shouting at me. (well not actually SHOUTING, but kinda) :)
I got her to smile!! How cute is that face?
These pictures were taken on my camera phone, hense the blur. Thank goodness that they invented those though! Layla has so many cute moments that would be missed if it weren't for the convenience of picture phones.
She had her 2 week appointment today and I took her all by myself! I was very proud of her and myself, for doing so well! She's such a brave girl. They stripped her down to her onesie, weighed her, and measured her. Checked her mouth, eyes and ears. Even her diaper (which thankfully was clean!). She now weighs 6lbs. 1oz. which is very good!! She has grown an inch in length too! I love my baby so much!
Tanner's Aunt Darla sent a present with Colleen for Layla. It's the cutest little outfit ever! And it actually fits! I was so excited that she can actually wear a dress! So she's in it at the moment and I'll have to take a picture before she pukes on it or something. Actually she's only spit up twice since she's been born and as gross as it sounds, she likes to swallow most of it. It always grosses me out and I tell her not to, but she likes it! Okay well that's enough for now. bye!
Well, my mom is gone. She left this evening, but unfortunately won't be back in Seattle until early tomorrow morning, due to flight problems. That's no fun. I'm excited for this week though, because there'll be more visitors! Colleen, Leah, and Taytum! Tanner starts school this Wednesday and I'm really excited for him. Even though he'll be taking a bunch of classes that he isn't looking forward to, like Math... soon enough he'll be taking construction based courses that I KNOW he'll enjoy. He's going to get a new part time job soon too. I am NOT looking forward to that, but I know it's necessary.
The weather is starting to cool down quite a bit! At night, I'm actually getting cold. Even though everyone says that Rexburg winters are deadly, I'm kinda looking forward to the cold. I've had enough of the heat! I like being able to go on walks in the evening, instead of 9:30 at night. I like being able wear comfy socks and sweats to bed and not sweat all night. Oops! Baby needs me! See ya!
We were given this Billi Blanket contraption yesterday, after checking her jaundice levels. I REALLY hope that it clears up soon, because it's quite a pain lugging this thing around with her. She's starting to eat even MORE now, so that should help flush it out of her system too.
I got more sleep last night (thanks to my Mom and Tanner) than I have since she's been born. Almost 6 hours!! Crazy huh? Well I am SUPER appreciative. Who knew that sleep would become such a precious thing once a baby comes. Well I've gotta run, baby is calling. Later!
