Valentine's Day 2011

This was Alyssah's 1st Valentine's day, and we spent the whole day at home ;)  I forgot to have her a shirt or an outfit made...I wasn't on my game since I was pregnant I guess!  Oh well, there's always next year.  Here are a few pics from that day of my kiddos :)

Happy 1st Valentine's Day sweetheart!

my big boy!

1 month old!

Alyssah had her 1 month check-up today, and our doc said she looks great!  She weighs 9 lbs, 6 oz and measures 21 1/4 inches long.  She's absolutely perfect :)

She is wearing mostly 0-3 months clothes now.  Her newborn outfits have been getting tight, and today she actually has on a 3 month outfit.  She has a lot of room in it, but it doesn't look too terribly big.

Happy 1 month sweet daughter!  Mommy loves you!

It's been awhile...

I feel like I haven't blogged in ages, but I guess a little break was allowed since I've had another child to look after.  Right?!  It has been an interesting transition. I have felt many things over the past month: exhaustion, joy, pride, frustration.  It has been fun and very tiring at the same time.
I've been in the process of getting ready for Mark's birthday party, so that has kept me busy this week.  I can't believe he's turning 3.  I feel like I just brought him home from the hospital too.  He's growing so fast, and amazes me everyday with the way he speaks and helps me do things around the house.  I'm glad he is old enough to help take care of his little sister.  He loves it.  He always brings her a paci and blanket.  It's precious :) I can't wait to have their pictures made together.  I've got to find a day to do that very soon.
Alyssah is getting bigger every week.  She goes for her 4 week check-up Monday.  I can't wait to see how much she weighs now.  She feels heavier to me, but who knows.  She hasn't really gotten in to a predictable routine which makes it difficult to go places sometimes since I'm nursing, but we are coping.  She typically nurses every 3 hours, but some days it's every 2.  Some days she's every 4 is a little frustrating, but I'm getting more used to it.  I guess I just forgot how demanding they are when they are really hungry ;)  Mark was worse than her though.  I just hope she gets into a routine soon.  Last night I tried to keep her awake longer before her last feeding before I went to bed.  It seemed to work better, and I got more sleep :)
That's the latest news at the Adams' residence.  Hopefully it won't be weeks before I blog again.  Have a wonderful weekend!
