To my Beautiful Baby Girl!

To my Beautiful Baby Girl,

You came into my life on February 10, 2003 at 11:08PM. Even though I don't remember my first glimpse of you, (I had a lot of medication in my body when you were born) I do know that you were the most beautiful baby I have ever seen. You were perfect in every aspect. When I was brought back into my hospital room, you were already there with Daddy, Grandma B, Mom-mom and Pop-pop T. and Aunt Allison were all there to greet you. When they got me all situated, I was shaking really bad due to the medication. The nurse asked me if I was ready to hold you and I told her that I wanted to wait until I stopped shaking, I didn't want anything to hurt you. She told me that as soon as I held you I would stop shaking. So I took you from her arms and as soon as I had you the shaking stopped. It was a moment in time that will be cherished in my heart forever.

I will continue this in a little while!

I love you so much,
Mommy

Well Honey Bunny, you are 21 weeks old today. Time has gone by so fast. I can't believe it sometimes. I like to sit and look at you and just admire the fact that you already have your own little personality. (Just hope you don't get daddy's temper. Don't tell him I said that either) Wink

You are doing so well at rolling over. May 25th you rolled over from your tummy to your back. You hate tummy time and you figured out how to escape it. You little bugger....:) On June 1st you went from your back to tummy. You do it all the time now, however, you get upset when you are on your tummy and you don't roll yourself back over. What happened? Did you forget how? Daddy and I show you all the time. You will grasp it one of these days I am sure.

I have given peaches and applesauce to you to eat. You weren't crazy about the peaches but you loved the applesauce. You ate HALF the jar. But the next day your tummy wasn't feeling right. So no more foold until 6 months or so. You have also tried rice cereal. You didn't like that either. Mom-Mom T. has given you some mashed taters and you liked them too! You kept licking your lips for more. It was the cutest thing.

You drank some water out of my cup last night. It seemed like you knew just what to do with it. You weren't used to it though and more came out of your mouth than in your mouth. But thats OK. I am not rushing Father Time.

Until Later Hugs & Kisses,
Mommy

Hi Honey Bunny,

You are with Miss Deena right now while I am at work. We are having a few problems over to Miss D's but we are going to try to work them out so things will smooth over. I hope that you are happy over there. I don't want to have to put you in a big daycare. You will get sick all the time and some of the kids are mean. I don't want anything bad to happen to you. Miss Deena is the best place that you can be. She has a ton of things for you to do but you just don't seem happy when I leave.

You are sleeping about 10 hours a night now. We put you to bed at 9pm and you don't wake up till 7am. What a good girl. Everynow and then you get up at 3 or 4am, I can deal with that. You eat and go right back to bed. I couldn't of asked for a better baby.

You saw your Aunt Ruth and Uncle Lemuel last night for the 1st. You also saw your cousins Pat, Karen and their son William who is now 7. He thought you where the sweetest thing. Aunt Ruth wanted him to give you his "Incredible Hulk" beach ball cause you liked it so much. He didn't want to part with it though. Honey said she would buy you one next time she is out and about. Karen rocked you to sleep. You slept on her for about 1/2 hour. You also drenched her arm in drool. That's ok, she didn't mind. She loves you to death also.

As I have said before, I will continue later!

Hugs & Kisses,
Mommy

Hi again Honey Bunny,
Guess Who? YAY, it's Mommy!

You were better yesterday for Miss Deena. She said you had a couple of fussy spells but as soon as she put you on the bed you looked at the ceiling fan and stopped. You have a thing for fans. They fasinate you for some reason. It is so cute.

Daddy is home now but you didn't get to see him last night cause you were in bed. You will get to see him tonight though. He missed you so much. You love it when daddy is home. He makes you laugh.

We went visiting AGAIN last night. We saw Uncle Greg and then we went to see Aunt Chris. Uncle Mark wasn't home but he has already seen you whereas Aunt Chris hasn't. She is ready for a baby. Maybe while she is getting her business ready she will get pregnant. Uncle Mark already has daughter Kelly who is 21. A year younger than me. They are not sure how she will take it since she has always been the baby. Aunt Chris is Uncle Mark's 2nd wife.

I will contine again later.

I love you baby,
Mommy

Hi Lexi,

Grandma B. just called and asked how you were doing. She really misses you. Now that we don't live so close to each other it is hard to get together, especially since Grandma works all kinds of crazy hours. She called to tell me that she was on her way home from Williamsburg. She had a nice little vacation. You are her pride and joy.

You are EVERYONE'S pride and joy. Never forget that baby. You have so many people that love you.

Hi Hookie Pooh,

You are with Mom-Mom T. & Aunt Allison today. They wanted to keep you and spend some time with you since they haven't seen you in awhile. I think they are taking you to Mom-Mom Walls today too! She hasn't seen you since Mother's Day. Boy is she going to be surprised.

I know this is short but Miss Betty is out of the office today so it is just me and Miss Ruby. I'll write more later!

I love you,
Mommy

Hi Again,

I just called Mom-Mom T and she said you were being a very good girl. At the moment she said you were sitting in your walker talking up a storm. She also said that you fell asleep in your swing for awhile but kept waking up b/c you kept falling over. Aunt Allison gave you a bottle at 10:45 and then put you in the walker.

Are you not happy at Miss Deenas? If not, please let me know somehow, I don't want you to be unhappy! We need to work on our communication skills somehow. I KNOW! I KNOW! I need to wait until you can talk. LOL!

Lots of Love,
Mommy

Hi Honey Bunny,

You are at Miss Deena's again today. Mom-Mom T. said you were a perfect angel yesterday. No fussy spells or anything. I am starting to think that maybe you don't like that fact that all Miss D's attention isn't directed to you. She has a few other children that she cares for. Maybe you don't like that? I am sure you will be fine in a few weeks though.

I gave you some cereal last night with nanners in it. You really like that although you still think that the spoon is a bottle. In the end, I think that I had more on me than you did in your mouth. I was very sticky. Miss D is going to try to give you peas today. I can't wait to hear how that goes.

Hugs & Kisses,
Mommy

Well Honey, it has been a few days since I have posted on here. I am extremely busy at work as you hear me talk about all the time.

We had a very nice weekend. Saturday we went shopping with Mom-Mom T and had a wonderful day and Sunday we went back over to Pop-Pop B. for another cookout. I was feeding you squash and you decided to start spitting. Daddy taught you that. Mommy is not too happy with that. You are doing it all the time now. Especially when you first wake up. You used to talk for about 1/2 hour before wanting to get up and now all you do it spit. It is kinda funny.

Grandma B. came over last night to see you. She stayed till it was your bedtime. You were soooo tired.

Gotta get back to work baby.

Love you Bunches,
Mommy

You are my Sunshine
My only Sunshine,
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know Dear
How much I love you,
Please don't take my sunshine away!

Just a quick note.

I know I said that I was going to wait until you were 6 months to start solids again but I gave it a try the other day and the squash went pretty well. I put sweet potatoes in your bag today. Not sure if you will like them or not. I don't but daddy loves them. You should have a good day today you are the only kiddo that Miss D. has. You love the 1 on 1 attention. (I don't blame you though :wink:)

I made you a bowl of cereal last night with nanners in it. That seem to be the way you only like them. You gobbled up almost the whole bowl. You did very well and seem to be getting used to the spoon more and more.

You are still sleeping so well and hope you continue to. I put you to bed last night around 9 and I had to wake you up at 6:45 this morning. You would have slept all day. Smile

Can't wait to pick up tonight. I have missed you so much today.

Higs & Kisses,
Mommy

Good Morning Sunshine,

You woke up this morning in a very good mood as ou do every moring. What a way to start MY day! I love seeing your smiling face looking up at me as if to say, "I love you Mommy, please pick me up and give me a hug!" Of course I do that anyways.

I bought you some juice last night. I am going to ask the ladies on the sweet tart board how they give it to their babies. I hope you like it.

You had more cereal last night. You are loving it more and more.

I am getting us a new truck to ride around in tomorrow. The other one is messed up already.

You really like the SpongeBob Square Pants song. I sing it to you evernight and you squeal with delight. Especially the end. SPONGEBOB SQUARE PAAAAAAANNNNNTTTTSSSS! You are too darn cute!

Well, there was so much I wanted to write in here but I am having a brain freeze. I might come back later!

Love You,
Mommy

Morning Sunshine!

Mommy went out last night and you stayed home with daddy. He said you were a very good girl. You fell asleep before your bedtime bottle and daddy couldn't wake you up so he put you in bed and you woke up at 2:30am, but that was ok. I didn't get to spend that much time with you last night. I went to the Fair with Aunt Allison. We had an OK time. I want to take you one night this coming week. I think you will like all the lights and the sounds. There were a million babies there last night, I should have taken you with.

Many Kisses,
Mommy

Hi Honey Bunny!

We had a busy weekend. Saturday we went to see Great-Grandpa Walter and we went to Wal-Mart. We had to get some baby shower presents. Grandma B. came over to see you again. We are going to the fair Tuesday night. I can't wait! Sunday we wen to see Aunt Angel and Pop-Pop B. You loved seeing Aunt Angel and little Robby. you laughed your head off at Robbie. He kept bringing you out teddy bears. You thought they were the cutest things.

Went to the baby shower and I won a Peach candle for playing baby bingo. You slept through most of it. You are such a good girl.

Oh Yea, you had your first juice on Saturday. You really liked it.

Hugs & Kisses,

Good Morning Sunshine!

You were so good last night at the Fair. I wanted to get you on the Carosel but the line was to long. We had your pictures done on a I love mommy and daddy wall hanging and Grandma got one too. She also got your picture on a t-shirt. You were so well behaved. We got you home way after your bedtime and you had a hard time going to sleep. Finally you fell asleep at 12am on your tummy.

You have been a good girl at Miss Deenas so far this week. We have figured out what the problem is. You missed the boys. Especially Tyler. He is almost a year old and D says that you 2 always flirt with each other and entertain each other. They won't be there today so we will see what happens. I hope that is what the problem is.

I love you Honey Bunny!

Moring Sunshine!

You were such a good girl last night for Mommy and Daddy. I gave you a bath and played with you for awhile as did daddy while I cooked dinner. You took a nap and then we all ate and then it was bedtime! You slept till 6am this morning. I didn't have to wake you up this time!

You have been a really good girl the last week or so at Miss D's. I hope it is going to stay that way! You are in good hands there!

Be back later!

Hi Lexi-Pooh! Mommy Loves you!

I miss you so much today. I wish I could stay home or even work at home. Maybe sometime down the road. I would really like that.

Daddy is picking you up today from Miss D's. We are going over to Great-Grandma W.'s house. She hasn't seen you in a few weeks. I will see you around 5:30 or so. I can't wait to have you in my arms tonight. I am feeling very clingy to you again. I love that feeling.

All the kisses in the world,
Mommy

Morning Honey Bunnie!

You were an Angel last night at Grandma W's. You even let Mommy and Daddy eat in peace while you played in your car seat. You started to get fussy around 7pm but that was becuase you were tired and didn't get your evening nap. I layed you on the floor and you layed there for awhile watching TV and sucking your thumb.

Daddy took you home and I had to go to Wal-Mart to get you some formula. I also got you a Pooh Bear teether. This one vibrates when you put it in your mouth to help sooth your gums.

I forgot to put this in here yesterday. Wednesday night when you were playing on the floor, I put a HUGE blanket down there so you wouldn't end up on the floor and get Prin Prin fur all over you. Anyways, you did end off the blanket and under the foot rest of daddy's chair. I asked him to do something but he told me that, "I need you to remove the baby from under the chair." It was so cute. You laughed almost the whole time. Glad I took some pictures.

You are going to stay with Honey for a few hours tomorrow while I get my hair done and go tanning. Then we are going to Aunt Janice's surprise birthday party and your cousins Gannon and Molly will be there. YAY! Then Daddy and I are going on a "date" and you will stay with Mom-Mom T. for a few hours. Not sure what we are going to do Sunday. Maybe go to the pool at Pop-Pop B. That would be nice.

Well Honey, I have to get back to work! 5 more hours till I can pick you up!

Love,
Mommy

Hi Honey!

Boy did we have a rough night last night. I guess the bottle that you had yesterday afternoon that wasn't warm enough gave you a bad belly ache. You had gas almost all night. I could hear you whimper in pain through out the night. I would get you up and rock with you until you fell back asleep. You seemed much better this morning. I think I am going to have to get more gas drops just in case.

We have a busy weekend. Saturday you spent the morning with Honey while I got my hair done and then we went to Aunt Janice's surprise birthday party. Your cousin Molly was there but Gannon wasn't. They were home sick. A bunch of your other cousins were there also. You have a HUGE family on daddy's side of the family. I think you made the 18th Great-Grand child for Mom-Mom Walls and Molly made the 19th. WOW! My family is no where that big. Anyways. It was hot outside, we couldn't have it inside since the family is so large. I ended up stripping you down to your diaper and Mom-Mom T. rocked you to sleep. You and Molly fell asleep at the same time and woke up at the same time. Towards the end you got a little fussy. It was so hot out so we went home and you spent the evening with Mom-mom. Daddy and I went out to dinner and went to do a little shopping. We bought you some adorable outfits from Old Navy. I have to get them washed before you can wear them though. Sunday was a big day also. We went shopping with Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop! We had lots of fun. Then we had dinner at Bonanza and went home.

I hope you are feeling good today. I am going to call you in a few minutes to make sure!

I love you so much Honey!

Hi Honey,

I just called Miss D. and she said you have very good today. Of course the boys are there. Smile She said you had taken a good nap this morning and she said that you are now sleeping again. You must be catching up on your sleep from last night. I can't wait to see you this afternoon. 2 hours left! Then we have to go to Wal-Mart!

Hi Lexi!

Not much to report today! We went to Wal-Mart last night as I needed to get some more formula for you. Of course they were all out. Luckily, I have 2 more cans at home. Will try again tonight. You were an angel as always.

Came home. Daddy worked last night so it was just us. I gave you a bottle at 7pm and you were out for the count. You woke up at 6:30am ready to go. I think you are caught up on your sleep now! I was in bed right behind you. The last time I looked at the clock was 8:54pm when Daddy called!

See you soon!

Mommy

Hi Baby!

You were so good last night! We didn't have to go to Wal-Mart since Daddy went for us! You are now stocked up on formula again!

We went home and played for awhile till you wanted a bottle and then we got a bath and you played in there for awhile then we played some more till it was time for cereal and a bottle and off to bed at 9pm.

Daddy has practice tonight so it will just be us again! Can't wait to see you this afternoon!

Morning Lex-Lex,

You woke up kinda grumpy this morning. Guess it was gas or something. After your bottle, you seemed Ok, back to your normal self! YAY!

Didn't do much last night. You watched me make bottles and watched as I cooked dinner. TACOS! You were sitting with us at the table looking at them with big eyes as if to say, "Let me at em'." It was so cute.

Not going to do much tonight expect clean and play with you! Also gotta get a bath too!

See you in a few hours.

I Love You,

Hi Lex-Lex,

2 1/2 hours till I pick you up! I can't wait. I miss you lots today. We have all weekend together though. Not sure what we are going todo. I have to call the hospital to see if they will let baby's in there. We might go visit Great Grandpa if it is allowed. He will be coming home Sunday but seeing you will make him feel better lots!

You woke up this morning at 4am! :shock: I think you heard daddy get up and it woke you up. You were hungry so I gave you a bottle and layed you back down and fell right back asleep!

I will see you soon Honey Bunny!

Lots of Love,

Hi Honey!

It has been a busy weekend and a day! I will start with Saturday.
Didn't do to much during to day. We did go to Wal-Mart to get a few things. We bought Daddy and playstation 2 game since he has been working so hard. We felt that he deserved it. I got you some new toys. (As if you needed them...LOL) We come home and napped until Daddy got home. We went to see Great-Grandpa W. in the hospital and then went to have dinner at Cracker Barrell with Grandma. It was really good. You didn't get to bed untill 11:30 or so. You were also up at 1am. That is because you were off schedule.

Sunday: We were going to got to Aunt Allison's car show for her Delaware Style car club but I knew it was too hot to be out there with you. So we went to Pop-Pops pool instead. Your 1st pool expierence. You loved it. You got in with Daddy 1st since I wanted to take some pictures. Then I took you. You splashed for a bit before I gave you to Honey. I didn't want to keep you in there too long. The sun was really hot that day. Pop-Pop went and bought you a vanilla milkshake much to my dislike. But you loved it. I only let you have a little since you are on Lacto-Free formula. You didn't have a reaction though. THANK GOODNESS!

Yesterday was not good.
(this is what I posted on the Feb. 2003 board)
I will start from the begining.

Lexi was fine when she woke up yesterday morning as she aways is. Got her ready and myself ready to start our day. Dropped her off to Deenas around 8am and I went to work.

Got a call from Deena around 10:30am. She wanted to for-warn me that Lexi has some small red marks under eye. Wasn't sure what it was. She called me so I wouldn't freak out when I picked her up. I asked her if it was bothering her or anthing like that and D said it didn't seem to bother her. So I told her that I would look at it when I picked her up. She said that was fine.

Get another call around 12:30. It's D. Said the marks are getting redder and are spreading down her cheeks. I didn't have anyone else in the office at the moment so I told her that I would stop by when the girls got back from lunch.

I went over there around 1:15 and looked at her. IT LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS IN A FIGHT AND LOST! I just about flipped out! I didn't know what it was. Thought maybe it was the chlorine from the pool since she was in it for the 1st time on Sunday. Didn't think that was it since no other spot on her body had those marks on it. Then I thought about the milkshake she had also the day before. Didn't look like an allergic reaction though.

Called my pedi and asked if I could bring her in to be checked out. Said that was fine but he was running behind and couldn't guarantee when she would be seen. That was fine with me. Got there around 2:30 and the RN checked her out. She said that she def. needed to see the doc. DUH! So we waited until 4pm to be seen.

Dr. B. said it wasn't an allergic reaction because that would in form of hives. He was leaning towards bruising. WTF! I will never exactly what happened but this is really worrying me.

I called D when I got home to see if she fell on a toy or if one of the kids got in her face. She said that there was nothing out of the ordinary. If that happened, she never cried out. The doc. also said that it could be an infection that causes blood vessels to burst. I don't think that was it. It looks like she got punched in both eyes. The marks are on her eye lids and all.

I took pictures and dated them and everything and I am going to start documenting everything.

And here we are! I am getting ready to call Miss D to see how you are doing. Hope you are OK!

Love you lots,
Mommy

Hi Honey!

I didn't get to spend TOO much time with you last night. We had a flat on the way home from work. You were a trooper though. You sat there patiently while we waited for daddy to come and put the spare on. It was almost 7 when we got home and I had to do your bottles and make dinner. Daddy gave you a bath while I did all that! We sat in the dining room with us and were a good little girl. I gave you your bedtime bottle and that was it.

You are with Aunt Allison today! I didn't trust taking you all that way to go to Miss D's with me while I had a donut on the car. Daddy is getting it all fixed though today!

Not sure what we are going to do tonight! I know some playing with our toys will be involved. Smile

I love you so much,
Mommy

Hi Honey Bunnie!

You had a rough night last night sleeping. You had horrible gas again. You must feel better this morning, you were all smiles for me again!

You had a fun day with Aunt Allison yesterday. She is watching you again on Saturday night cause Daddy and I are going to see Martina McBride at the Shorebirds Stadium. She asked if she could take you to the races that night. I DON'T THINK SO! My 6 month old does not need to be at the races. Maybe next year but not now!

You are sitting up better and better everyday! Hopefully soon, you will be able to sit up unassisted!

Gotta Run.

Love you much,

Goodmorning Sunshine!

Daddy and I took apart your bassinet last night. Well, Daddy took it apart, I just watched and wanted to cry. It has just been sitting there for weeks and you haven't been in it for 2 months now. It was a little depressing.

You slept very light last night. You never woke up but you tossed and turned alot!

We put you in your highchair for the 1st time last night. You had a lot of 1st's last night. You had your 1st cracker, your 1st's sips of water, which you loved and you ate dinner with us at the table instead of on the floor. I tried giving you some more green beans but you wanted a bottle instead. You ate your whole jar yesterday, which surprised me!

I will have to come back later Honey!

Love You,

Happy 6 months and 1 day Birthday Honey! :happybday: :pinkelephant: :thewave: :party:

You are getting so big! You are starting to sit on your own, with a little help of course. You are nothing but smiles all day for me! My heart wants to explode whenever I look at you. Knowing that you are a part me is so overwhelming sometimes it scares me! But then you smile or laugh and I feel so much better.

You had some cake and ice cream yesterday at Pop-Pop B. house. You really liked it. Daddy and I weren't to keen on the idea of you having cake but you only had a little bit.

You also went swimming again yesterday. We got you an infant floating tube but you are still too small for it. You kept falling forward. So I just held you while you splashed for awhile. You really like the pool!

6 Months and 2 days and we are finally seeing teeth! I can see your bottom 2 through the front of your gums. You won't let me get a "good" look but I can definetley tell! You are getting so big!

I gave you a jar of applesauce last night since you have been doing so good at eating your veggies. You ate the whole jar and I gave you some water with it. You loved it!

You crashed at 9pm last night and I crashed with you. Daddy will be home tonight! YAY! He can't wait to see your teefers!

Morning Sunshine!

Not much to write today.

You are walking forwards in your walker now too! You are not manuvering too well but you seem to like to "run". It is so funny. I think you are going to walk before you crawl.

No teefers yet either! Maybe by the end of the month we will see those pearly whites.

Hi Honey Bunnie!

I miss you today, I just wanted to tell you that. I made out some letters to send to Booke in Pennsylvania and Sheila in New Castle. I don't have their e-mails anymore. I am going to get them ready to go out tonight. I have to put some of your pictures in there. I haven't spoken to either one since you were born. You keep me busy all the time! I wouldn't have it any otherway!

I have to get you some formula again. Probably not tonight but I know I will have to Thursday night. One can only makes 4 of your bottles and you have about 5-6 a day. I wish I could win a years worth. That would be great! We are stocked up on diappies (diapers, we call them diappies) though. I bought you 2 packs on Saturday and Honey (Great Mom-Mom B.) bought you a pack too! I did take 1 of the big packs to Miss D's. She did say that you were running low!

Gotta get back to work!

I love you lots,

Hi Honey Bunnie!

Daddy is picking you up from Miss D.'s today. Wal-Mart FINALLY has your formula so we are going to stock up!

Not much to report. You were a good girl last night, you took a nap while I cleaned and did some laundry. You woke up arounf dinner time and I gave you a jar of peaches, you ate "most" of them and then you wanted you bed-time bottle and if was off to bed you go!

Do you wanna go see Daddy play softball Saturday? We might take a ride over to Seaford to see him play for alittle while. It will be hot and I will have no place to warm your bottles. We might go see Grandma B. for awhile if she isn't working. Maybe she can watch you for a few minutes while I go tanning! I haven't done that since I found out I was pregnant with you and that was WAY over a year ago. :shock: I used to go tanning all the time!

Well, I need to get some work done!

I love you,
Mommy

You know what I can't wait for? For you to see me and put your arms out for me to pick you up! I will fall to pieces the 1st time you do that!

Wal-Mart DOES have your formula now! YAY!

See you soon,

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance,
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance..

Good morning Sunshine!

My our time flys by on the weekends. Friday night you didn't sleep well at all, I am still not sure what was bothering you. I think I slept maybe a total of 5 hours, if that.

Saturday we were going to watch daddy play ball but he was home before we left. They lost the 1st game 15-2. So we got ready to go meet Grandma. We ended up going to Doyle's for lunch and then we went to the mall. It was a fun day!

Sunday we didn't do much except go to dinner with Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop T. and then we all went to Wal-Mart together.

You have started to say DADADADADADADA, I think you are almost to that jibberish stage, it is sooo cute. You are doing more and more everyday!

I love you so much,
Mommy

I also wanted to add that you saw Aunt Stephanie last night in Wal-Mart for the 1st time since Mother's Day. She held you for awhile, she can't get over how big you are! She said she will call me more often so she can see you more! I think you will like that.

Hugs & Kisses,

Hi Lexi,

Guess Who? Smile

You had a rough night again last night. I am not sure what the problem is. I hope you are feeling ok. I don't like it when you are in pain.

Daddy was working last night and he won't be home till after you are in bed tonight so he won't see you until tomorrow. I am debating on taking you to the firehouse to see him, if I do that, we will get in bad traffic and you will get fussy. We will see. I have to figure out what to do for dinner too.

Miss D. gave me some cute pictures that she has taken while you are at her house. Daddy took my favorite one, he is going to put it in his locker at the firehouse.

Well Honey, I wanted to jot a quick note down, I don't like to miss a day writing in here!

Love you lots,
Mommy

Hi Honey,

Short post today. I have tons of things to do!

Didn't sleep well again last night. You were up at 12am and again at 4am. I think this might be another growth spurt.

Hope you are having a good day at Miss D.'s.

Love you,

It has to be a growth spurt. Not sure what else would make you get up like you have been. You were up at 1:30am but I rocked you back to sleep and then you were up at 4am so I gave you a bottle then. You are a growing girl!

Maybe we will go to Pop-Pop B.'s pool again this weekend! You love the pool.

Hugs & Kisses,

Wanted to add that you have this ONE spot on top of your head where the hairs want to curl, no matter how hard I try to flatten them, they stick right back up. You must be getting my natural curls. It's so funny though, it is just that one spot. Everywhere else is straight and flat!

Love,

Good Morning sunshine!

You were a bit fussy last night but Daddy and I had fun playing with you. I gave you some cereal and a jar of peaches last night but you were too sleepy to eat it. So I gave you a bottle and you fell asleep before you even finished it.

You woke up at 1:30am crying, I rocked you back to sleep and the same thing happened again at 4:30am. I finally woke you up around 6:30am. Are you not confortable at nights anymore? I wish I really new what the problem is. Maybe this is just a phase.

Still not sure what we are going to do this weekend. Whatever we do I will make sure it is fun for you!

Hugs & Kisses,
Mommy

Good Morning Sunshine!

I know I am going to get behind in this and I don't want that to happen. I am very busy at work and I hope you understand. I will try to update as fast and as soon as I can.

I love you so much Honey!

Ok, I have a little time to squeeze this in.

We stayed with Honey last night. My car was in the shop so all we had was Daddy's. Since he was working in the area, I wanted to stay close incase he needed his truck for any reason. Daddy worked on the ambulance last night. You were very fussy and did not like taking a bath last night. You screamed and cried, I couldn't even get your hair washed. I gave you a bottle around 9pm and you were out like a light. You woke up several times wimpering but I rocked you back to sleep. I am begining to wonder if you are not comfortable anymore.

You are going to hate me when you get older but I have to post this since this is YOUR journal. I had to get some prunes for you the other day. You were trying so hard to go but you would only go alittle. Poor thing. I gave you a third of the jar as I wasn't so sure on how you would react to them. That helped alittle, so I had Honey give you some more yesterday and it worked better than before. Honey gave you the rest this morning so you should be fine now. When you went this morning it was a lot better.

I think tomorrow, Grandma B. is going to Honey's to see you. She wants to take you for the day but that is alot of riding. I think she said that she was going to take Honey and you to lunch. That would be nice. You are so well behaved at restraunts.

I need to get you over to Grandpa's and Pop-Pop's. There just aren't enough hours in the day. You also haven't seen Aunt Angel in about a month. Maybe we will stop by on Friday. I know she has off on Fridays. I am sure little Robby will be thrilled to see you.

I have to start looking for your Halloween costume. We have to have pictures done soon. I need to check out the Disney store or Target. I think I want you to go as Eyore or Piglet. Can't make up my mind.

Well honey bunny, I gotta run!

Hugs & Kisses,
Mommy

Hi Lexi!

You were in better spirits last night that is for sure! We went home and I gave you a bath, which you really enjoyed this time. Unlike, the night before at Honey's when you screamed and cried. You wanted to keep sucking on the wash cloth and drinking that water but I didn't want you to do that. I gave you a rag with just water on it but you kept dunking it in the soapy water. It was so cute.

Gave you a bottle after and I guess the soap upset your tummy because once you burped after you were finished, it all came back up and all over my shirt.

You went to bed at 9pm and woke up at 3 for a bottle. I know you wanted one then since your last one was around 7pm. You woke up for good at 6:30am. You are a great alarm clock for me!

That's all for now. I think we are going to Wal-Mart later. I am going to get some cushion stuff to see if that will make you more comfy at nights!

I love you!

Good Day Sunshine! Good Day Sunshine! Smile

We had a BAD thunderstorm last night. I lit some candles around 8 8:30 and the lights went out at 8:45pm. Luckily, I warmed your bottle just in time. Not even 2 minutes after it was done, all power went out.

You were a good girl yesterday for Mom-Mom and Grandma. They took you to see Great-Grandpa and then you went out to lunch. They are so proud of you!

You slept maybe 20 minutes the whole day, you didn't even go to sleep on the way home. You slept ok last night. Only up once. We went and got you on of those egg carton things to see if maybe you wanted extra cushion. If seemed to help alittle! We shall see.

You want pizza for dinner? LOL! I am in the mood for Dominos!

Hi Baby!

I miss writing in here! I am so busy at work, I can't even make time for this.

You are now saying Dada flawlessly and can go from sitting to laying on your stomach effortlessly! You are getting so big I can't believe it!

I will try to get back here tomorrow!

Well, I am back for a few minutes!

Daddy and I think you said Ma the other night (9/1/03). We looked at each other and then at you but of course, you wouldn't say it again.

You were up quite a few times again last night. I don't know what else to do baby. I keep telling myself that this too shall pass.

I am trying to find something fun for us to do on Sunday. Just the 3 of us. Maybe some pictures or maybe to the mall. How about the boardwalk since all of the tourists are just about gone? That sounds fun! I will have to mention that to Daddy. I think he will like that too!

Morning Honey!

You were in a good mood last night. You played with your toys while Daddy played Playstation and I got a shower. You let me do my hair and everything. You also only woke up once in the middle of the night. I had to get you up 6:30am. Happy Days Are Here Again. Smile

You are so cute. I love you!

Hugs & Kisses,
Mommy
