    LO's Age and Stats -21days (3wks) As of today 7lb8oz 21 1/4in

    Fun Firsts - What's new and exciting? She is offically a big sister. Her daddys SO just had her baby monday 8 weeks early, so her and baby brother are 20 days apart.

    Monday Moans - not much for me to groan about, just praying for my daughters little brother (half brother) whos in the nicu.
    On another note, my daughters dad is being a good daddy, he bought her pampers and wipes which was needed since im broke till the 1st. He was supposed to pick her up they day his SO was admitted to the hospital for high blood pressure, so they didn't come for her, and few hours later she became a big sister to a very premature baby brother. But daddy call to check on her every day which he should. Im just glad that his SO (who is actually a good friend of mine, and going to be godmother to my little one) is doing well, just hope that her son stays healthy n gets to go home soon.

    Time for ME - What are you going to do just for YOU this week? As a single mom of 2 don't get much me time. My mom did help me this weekend so i could get some much needed rest.
    What did you do over the long Memorial Day Weekend? Relax with my baby girl n big boy.
