Hello! This week has passed by so quickly and I've been SO busy. I spend most of my free time learning stuff on Photoshop which, by the way :
Tam, I wasn't really feeling creative when I made this, I'll make something new sometime soon. I promise!
I'm trying to find my creative outlet, and it's taking some time. I've been stuck on Christmas crap because I am so excited for Christmas. I'm already listening to Christmas music and look forward to putting up lights and the tree next week. That same weekend we're going to Opry Land (hopefully) to go see the lights. I think Kaiden will get a kick out of it really.
Kaiden is doing well, smiling and hamming it up for the camera. He finds it so funny which I had no idea why. Then sometimes he can be SO serious, haha. It cracks me up. Yesterday was our 2 month check-up and shots. I was SO nervous and scared. Before we went back a little girl around a year old came in the waiting room screaming and crying from her shots and Kaiden started to cry. The doctor said babies do that, which I thought was funny. We got his height which is now 23 inches (from 21 at 2 weeks and 19 at birth) and 12.6 pounds (8 pounds at 2 weeks and 7.4 at birth). He is getting SO big! He pee'd twice on the scale so that took some time. The doctor checked him out and he is a healthy little man and then came the dreaded shots. He screamed and cried for about 3 minutes until I got him in my wrap and cuddled him, then he was fine. The nurse gave us a bunch of free formula too, which was AWESOME!
Kaiden is growing so fast, he is a little less dependent now which is good. He'll sleep on the couch and put himself to sleep now which is NEW! I'm still not able to get a lot done since he doesn't nap a lot and if he does any little noise wakes him up. I think he tricks himself into a nap most days. :/
I am doing well, still no period which is concerning me. I'm trying not to think about it. I also have a dry spot on my back where I think I had my epidurel. I dunno if that is normal but it won't go away at all. Grr. I'm also getting lots of headaches and I haven't even started my birth control yet. I may call and make an' appointment for myself to get checked out. Lo and behold if I'm pregnant again. I'll cry and won't know what to do honestly. We can't afford it..and I won't abort it. It will be a fucking mess. 2 babies under a year old? x.x
This past weekend we had dinner at Brian's parents then Saturday we did errands, then to Jeff's families house for his birthday dinner. and went our seperate ways while Brian's parents babysat for us. I had a girls night with Holly and Kristin which was nice just to hang out and have a few drinks. Brian went to UFC with Jeff and the guys for Jeff's birthday. Kaiden was a major hit at Jeff's birthday, everyone held and laughed at him as he smiled and had a great time. I think he spit up on atleast 3 people, haha. Then Sunday we just hung out at the house because Kaiden was in a seriously ill mood and I had NO sleep.
I work extra this week to try and save more money for Brian's Christmas present. It's 332.58 for the Itouch and 2 year protection plan, and I wanna get him a case and a Roadtrip which are 35.99 and 49.99. I guess we will see.
Brisen, Rachel and I went yesterday and put together a bathtub of all sorts of baby stuff (about 100 dollars worth of stuff) for her baby shower. We made lollipops and candies out of spoons and wash clothes! It's cute. They tied up shampoos with wrist rattles and spoons with bows. We got some nice bottles, a awesome blanket, a cute spotted sheet, spoons, toys, lotions, coupons (because she is a coupon NUT), a really nice bottle cleaner, a bath tub, bottle warmer, powder, ear swabs, etc etc. SO much stuff. I can't wait to go!
So this weekend is :
Friday : Dinner at Brian's grandmothers.
Saturday : Dinner at the Catfish house with my Dad and grandparents, then to pick up our 4 generation pictures.
Sunday : Deandra's baby shower.
Woohoo! And I work Friday so wow..yeah. Long week ahead of me! I need to go cook and get ready for work tonight.
Well I'm blanking and Kaiden is throwing a fit, thanks shots! Here are some pictures. ( Is you!Collapse )
