What a trooper!

We took Taylor in for her 2 month check up this morning. She weighed in at 11lbs 4ozs and is now 22 3/4 inches. :) The doctor checked her out and said everything looks good.......except that she is tongue tied! Not uncommon - it's when the connecting skin (membrane) under the tongue is short or it extends too far toward the front of the tongue. She referred us to an ENT to take Taylor to see and they will decide if they need to perform the procedure of snipping the membrane to correct it. That appt is tomorrow afternoon.
Next it was time for the shots. She had fallen asleep while waiting for the nurse to come in so we had to wake her up and get her ready. I stood over her and talked to her to let her know everything was ok and then it started. Poor baby - her eyes almost popped out of her head when they gave her the 1st one. There was a total of 5 and I have to give the nurse credit - she did them quickly! Obviously - Taylor was less than thrilled but the crying did stop sooner than I thought it would. We got home and she slept for a little while. After she woke up and ate - she was in a great playful mood.....picture below ....yes - that's a sticker on her shirt. I took it from the Drs office cause it says "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful!" True Story!!
So she is a trooper! Thankfully we don't have to do the shot thing again until her 4 month check up. Fingers crossed she will handle this tongue issue as well as she did the shots today. Actually - fingers crossed that I can handle all of it as well as she did! HA! Dear Crazy!

How do you spell slacker....??


I can't believe I haven't updated my blog in a few weeks! It's not like stuff hasn't been going on - I just got a little lazy about it. So for all of you loyal readers......I'm back and will be more on top of updates!

Things are really good. Taylor is amazing and is growing every day! We are going to the pediatrician tomorrow for her 2 month appt! Can you believe it she has already passed the 8 week mark? Ben and I sure can't! The picture below is one I took today to send to her Aunt Melissa to see her in the outfit she bought way back in January when we found we were having a girl.

I'll make another post tomorrow to let you all know how the appt went.

Thursday Funny......

Taylor and I went out to meet Becca at Anita's (YUMM-O) for lunch today. Taylor was a rock star again in her new sunglasses......anyone expect anything less?? Didn't think so. ;0)
So we were sat and the little guy that took us to our table commented on how cute she was in her sunglasses. I thanked him and told him she was sleeping so she didn't even know I had put them on her. He then started questioning why she wasn't moving and I told him again that she was sleeping. After a few times of us going back and forth about it being ok that she wasn't moving he finally walked away. Becca commented on how worried he he seemed to be about her lack of movement and as much as I appreciated his concern - a sleeping baby is a happy baby! Dear Crazy!

Glory Days are here again.......

Well - the time has come for me to go back to the hole! I'm working the day shift at the bar this Saturday(the 19th) so if you are craving the food as much as I am (I can't believe I'm admitting that), don't have anything else to do or just miss seeing me in that horrible "duke blue" polo - come have lunch with me!!! It's been 2 1/2 months since I've stepped foot behind the bar and I'm looking forward to going back to my Tuesday nights hopefully sometime in August.....but you guys don't want to wait that long - I know it! hahahaha!

Stroller Lessons 101

True Story......

Taylor and I went out this morning to meet Becca and Nicole at Starbucks. Becca and I pulled up at the same time and I asked her opinion about either taking Taylor inside with a) the stroller so she could hang out in there or b) just the car seat and she would end up chillin on the floor since putting it on a table is a big no-no. We decided that we would take her in with the stroller.....

So we took the monster of a stroller out and got it on the ground. At this point Becca is waiting for me to open it so we can get Taylor out of the car. This is also the point at which I realize I don't know how to open the damn thing! Every time we had gone out - Ben had been with us and took care of getting this chore done - well except one time but I was with Heather and she opened it out of excitement that we were taking Taylor to the COACH outlet. After a few moments of laughing at ourselves (well - at me) I had to swallow my pride and call Ben at work. I'm not sure he found the situation as entertaining as we did but he was able to guide me through it.....his exact words were "just pull up the handle - duh". Brilliant!! We pulled up the handle - got her in and we were on our way to enjoying our gossiping over skinny cinnamon dolce lattes!

The moral of this story.....learn how to operate the stroller before your husband goes back to work. Dear Crazy!!

Trip to Nanny's

Taylor had another "first" this past weekend......her first road trip down to Williamsburg to meet the Nanny! :)

We got up EARLY on Saturday to feed Taylor then got her ready and into the car for her first big ride. We stopped in Reston to pick up Norma as clearly it wouldn't be the same without all of the girls there. For those that don't know - "all of the girls" include myself, Mom, Sissy, Nanny, Aunt Kathy, cousins Denise & Donna and now Taylor. My dad "had to work" - coincidence maybe?? HA!

We had such a nice time and Taylor did great! She LOVED meeting everyone - especially Nanny - and the feelings were mutual.

Denise took lots of pictures - here is the link to Snapfish....
