4 weeks left until I return to work

I am having the hardest time thinking about going back to work... I literally have spent almost every hour with Adalyn since she was born. This is soooo hard. To any of my friends who look at my blog, please PRAY for me. Pray for my mom who is coming to watch her for two months. Pray for the lady watching her after that. Pray for my peace and that I will give it over to GOD completely! I always try and give things to HIM and always find myself taking them back!

Today has been interesting....not rough, but interesting. Adalyn has done some pretty heavy crying sessions today. Just two or three times, she has cried like I have never heard before. I think she's tired. She's sleeping now, passy is in, so we will see how long it lasts. Pray that it's just today.

Adalyn Love....11 weeks

Adalyn Love is 11 weeks old which means I only have 5 weeks left at home with her!! Oh my, how the time has flown by!! Here are the updates: Adalyn is smiling sooooo much!!! The smile starts with her eyes, so even if she has a passy in, we can tell when she is grinning!! ha ha!! And praise the Lord, we found a passy that she will take! Since we found this passy, she skips her 2 am feeding. YEAH for Mommy!! She is starting to make more baby noises and her voice sounds very girly (high pitched). She has found her tongue (see pics below), and it's always outside of her mouth, so funny!! Her two favorite times of the day are waking up next to mommy and when daddy gets home from work...seriously, it's when she is smiling the most! Right now, we are working on getting her out of our bed and into her big baby crib...let me know if you have any helpful tips! No more newborn clothes for this baby! She now weighs 10lbs 10oz and is 21 and 3/4 inches long! Her height is still in the 12%, so we think she will be on the shorter side! On Monday, she had her two month shots....had her passy in her mouth when the doc gave her the first shot, and her eyes were the biggest I have ever seen....kind of like a cartoon!! As soon as I picked her up, she was fine. Josiah was the one with tears welled up in his eyes and ready to punch the doctor for making his baby cry. He was supposed to be there as moral support for me! All is well in Reneau Reality!

11 weeks!

She loves her tongue!
