    First Mother's Day-Baby dedication at chruch, lunch with both sets of parents, and the rest of the afternoon in pajamas naping on and off.

    LO's Age and Stats - She's 22 days today, I can't believe it's been that long.

    Fun Firsts - She spent 15 minutes or so on her play mat before getting tired. It was so cute.

    Monday Moans - My hubby has been taking the 11pm feeding but he's unable to get her to stay asleep. So I'm up in 30 minutes to an hour to get her back to sleep.

    Time for ME - I'm having lunch with a close friend later this week but LO will be with me! Wednesday is our 3 year anniversary so my hubby is taking me on a hot date Tuesday night and LO will be at the grandparents!

    Share your First Mother's Day memories? Hubby made me breakfast. It was beautiful outside so we took our first family walk. Sean also had his first bath and after the first minute of screaming he loved it. a perfect day!

    LO's Age and Stats -11 days old last weight 6lbs 12oz. 19 1/2 inches.

    Fun Firsts - What's new and exciting? First bath sucess, and i got that elusive sticky bugger out finally. 1 drop of saline drops and the sucker did the trick.

    Monday Moans - New struggles or just something you need to get off your chest? I am so sick of bilirubin tests, his poor heal. and spitting up! im breastfeeding and he just goes all out. I am trying to express a minute before feeding him that seems to be helping but it is frustrating.

    Time for ME - What are you going to do just for YOU this week? One of the most important things you can do to rejuvenate yourself. i painted my toe nails on he porch when they had daddy time

    Time for ME - What are you going to do just for YOU this week? One of the most important things you can do to rejuvenate yourself. Well more important, we are going camping this weekend cant wait!!

    Riley is 10wks old, at his 8wk checkup he weighed 9lbs 6oz & was 21 1/2 in long-that was 2 wks ago.

    My first Mother's Day was last yr & we honestly didn't know it was the weekend we had planned a coast trip just the hubby & I. My mom watched Kelsey & we drove back home on Sunday, Mother's Day. As much as I love her it was still nice little get away to relax & catch up on sleep. Once we got back to town we went to my MIL's for a BBQ & swimming.

    Fun Firsts- he has started laughing/smiling whenever he sees me & it makes me heart melt:)

    Monday Moans-well it's Thursday lol. Monday's are good for us because Kelsey goes to MDO so I usually plan lunch with a friend & run errands then pick her up & make dinner. But my moan for today is that I started a work out DVD last night & I am SO SORE!!

    Time for ME-Sunday being Mother's Day we went to a place to eat on the river & I got a gift certificate for a massage/facial. Monday while Kelsey was at MDO I just hung out at home i my pj's with Riley, we ate leftovers & caught up on tv shows from last week, Wednesday I had lunch with a good friend.
