12 Weeks

Our little B is 12 weeks old. She has become as Nicholas calls her Drool Monster and she's not even teething yet. You hold her over your shoulder for 2 seconds and your shirt is soaked. Its actually pretty cute because she licks everything. Last night Nicholas was holding her and bouncing on the yoga ball. She was staring at me and licking his shoulder. He would pull her away and her tongue would stop. Once he layed her back down her tongue would start moving again. She did it for about 30 minutes.

She has really found her voice too. She is always screaming and squawking, trying out different tones and pitches. Sometimes she'll scream so loud she scares herself. Its really funny. Nicholas got a new guitar because we wanted him to play music for B. Its been really cute to see her face when he plays. The other night he was playing and B was singing. So freakin cute!!!! I love these two!!!!

Sweet Faces

Nothing is better than coming home from a work trip to these faces. Nicholas was such an awesome single dad. He took great care of our little B (not that I didn’t think he would). He also made sure she was dressed cute everyday (Something I think most dads are bad at) Haha. He sent me pictures and videos to help with my Baines withdrawal. I missed my little family like crazy and I'm not looking forward to leaving them again.

Is it too early?

Do you think it is too early for me to order this for Baines?

I first saw one of these bikes at McCall's friends house last year and wanted to order it then. I know Baines can't even roll over yet but we can work out those little details later. It will probably be another year before we even think about getting her to try this but still, I want it.

What its like when Daddy gets me ready in the morning

McCall left for her first work trip this morning so I'm on my own until Sunday.

No way...

"You're joking, you're telling me I have a new cousin named Evan.  No way that's awesome! "

Waiting ...

B is so excited for her cousin Evan to be born.  She stayed up with me waiting for the good news.  She passed out suckling on her arm.

10 Weeks

My little baby is 10 weeks old today and this is my last week home with her. Monday I have to go back to work and on Wednesday I leave to Dallas for 4 days. Next week is going to be really really hard on me. Whenever I think about not seeing her smile all day it makes me cry. Also Nicholas is in North Carolina again so I'm an emotional single mom this week!

I've been trying to make the best out of my last week with B. She is so fun right now. She just smiles and laughs all the time. Except for her car seat. She hates being in it. Most babies like riding in the car but all she does is scream. We can calm her down with a pacifier and sometime she sleep but for the most part she hates it. It makes shopping or taking her anywhere difficult. Last week I decided to take her out of the seat and carry her in the Bjorn. Its working really well. She likes to be able to look around. she moves her head side to side looking at everything. I was actually able to get grocery shopping done without her screaming to be let out of the car seat.

She loves it when I sing her songs. Right now her favorite is Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. She gets excited because she knows I will be touching her face. whenever you touch her face or just cheeks she smiles and laugh. She a ticklish girl!

Please don't judge my terrible singing!!!

Yesterday the boys had to take out our current bedroom's window in order to finish framing the new master bath. That window also housed our only air conditioner. Yesterday was 96 and not having the double pane glass and no AC really heated up the house. We had to re arrange our bedroom so we could put the AC back in. By the time we finished the house was already a MILLION degrees. B was really fussy because it was so hot. I got an ice cold rag and put it on her head. Not only did she love it but she looked super cute too!

We took a hiatus from working on the house when B was born. Now the boys are getting back into it. For the last week they have been working super hard on getting the addition framed. They've almost got it complete.

Shrieking for Sophie

Last night Baines played with Sophie for a half and hour. Towards the end she got really frustrated because she cant grab her yet. She just tries so hard to bite her ears. She started shrieking and I thought it was so funny and cute. See for yourself, at 23 seconds its the best!

Left all alone

Poor little B was left screaming while Nicholas and I tried to cover our addition with a tarp during a down pour. Does anyone want to be our financial backer and pay to finish our house?

PS. it stopped raining once we got it covered. So we just trapped the rain underneath. FAIL

We love Sophie

Baines got a new toy, Sophie the Giraffe. It's great for teething and came highly recommended from friends. B got hers in the mail yesterday and she already loves it. You can get yours at
