7 months and starting work

Sorry I haven't been able to comment much on every one's blogs...I'm so busy now that I'm back at work. It's crazy....having a baby and working is so much different than working without a baby...why didn't ya'll tell me that;) I have to wake up at 5:30 so I can get ready in time and still get to do everything with McKenzie like dress and feed her. Thank goodness Brandon brings her to the babysitter or I would really be late for work. She really seems to love the babysitter and the other kids that stay there (there are 5 other small children). I'm so thankful for that. I think the anticipation of going back to work was much worse than actually going. Once I was there it wasn't as bad as I expected. So that's going pretty good. Kenzie already had to miss a day on Friday because she had her 2nd cold....uggggh!! I hate when she's sick.

She turned 7 months on Saturday!! I can't believe it!! Time is FLYING by. Her 7 month stats are:

  • She got 2 teeth a month ago (bottom)...I forgot to write that on 6 months...
  • She is in size 3 diapers.
  • She is taking 5 bottles a day... 4 that are 6 oz and an 8 0z before bed.
  • She sleeps through the night most of the time but wakes up on occasion @2nights a week.
  • She could care less for baby food. She really only likes the Sprout brand (I actually like it to0;) She loves graham crackers, puffs, gerber snacks, fruit slices, etc. though
  • She loves her swing outside!!
  • She is talking/babbling like CRAZY. I swear she says babbbaaa when she wants a bottle.
  • She is still only rolling where she wants to go...I don't know is she will crawl anytime soon.
  • She is wearing 3-6 month clothes..some 6-12 month dresses.
  • She loves playing peek-a-boo/peep-pie with her daddy...she beams every time she sees him.
  • She still loves her money that I've spent!
  • She is 16 lbs 3 0z and 26 1/2 inches long.

Can't think of anything else because I'm so tired;) I hope everyone is doing great! I'm trying to catch up on your blogs. Know that I'm always thinking of ya'll! Have a great week!!

PS. To those teachers....wish me luck...I get my kids tomorrow;)

I don't know why we buy toys...she loves remote controls, paper, and water bottles!!

Overdue posts:6 month pics, cold, sleep....

Well I am sleep deprived...I feel like I have a newborn. McKenzie hasn't slept well since she first got a cold. At first it was because she couldn't breathe well. Her cold then developed into croup. The doctor put her on steroids for the croup and said it would make her active at night..yay! He was right. For three nights straight she was up for 2 hours at a time. I am averaging 3-4 hours a night...uggh! Friday night she finally slept again. Last night she had these weird crying spells like she was having nightmares. For 2 hours she made the noise they make after they cry for a long know the one where they sound like they are catching their breath. Brandon looked it up and he said it was night terrors...has anyone else experienced this?

I am starting work on Thursday and I'm so sad!! I'm so nervous about leaving McKenzie with someone else!! Wish me luck:(
I am also late posting McKenzie's 6 month photo shoot pics. They are below...I hope you enjoy;) I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
