One crappy day

So my day started out great! 3 am and Hayden woke up to eat for the first time of the night. So I got 6 straight hours of sleep! I don't think I have gotten 6 hours since conception. So I was feeding Hayden and about 3:15 Sydney comes in my room to go to the bathroom. She pees and goes back to bed. No big deal, maybe she will sleep longer since she peed early, right? She has had a little cold for the past week and a half and had a cough with it. So I hear her coughing so I went into her room to give her some more cough medicine. I opened the door and got blasted with the smell of puke. Sydney had thrown up earlier in the night and it was all over her bed, hot dog chunks and all. Poor thing coughed so hard she puked and didn't tell me. Poor baby. So in she goes with me because really who wants to clean that up at 3am. So we tossed and turned the rest of the night which came to an end when Hayden wanted breakfast at 6. So we were up for the day. Sydney was doing much better up and around so I decided brilliant mom that I am to go ahead with the plan I have had for weeks to get family pictures done. Things are going great until my mom lost Hayden's headband that I bought especially for pictures. So postpartum sleep deprived me freaked out and ran around like a maniac trying to find the stupid headband (which we haven't found yet). We ran out of the house (with me in a fabulous mood ;) to Tempe where we were meeting the photographer Brittney. So things are fine and I am starting to calm down and Sydney starts coughing really hard again. Guess what happens next! That's right she pukes again twice all over her picture outfit (thankfully I only had the leggings and tee shirt on so her dress wouldn't get wrinkled) and the car seat! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! Can this day be any better. Oh wait it can. We get to Tempe I strip down Sydney give her a diaper wipe once over and put on her sleeveless dress that now has no leggings or long sleeve shirt (it's cold and we are outside) and start with the pictures. My sweet baby Hayden proceeded to cry through about 95% of the pictures. I am sure the pictures are going to be wonderful! Hopefully we will at least get one family picture for my $100.

Hayden - 6 weeks

My sweet baby Hayden is 6 weeks old today. She is getting so big already. I am really trying to enjoy every moment with her because I know how fast it goes. She is such a good baby. I am so lucky. She really only crys when I first put her in the carseat or when she wants to be held. When she is hungry she just kicks her legs, grunts and smacks her lips. It is the cutest thing!

Check out my beautiful blue eyes!

The lovely Dr Mayer!

Sydney's 4!!!!!

That's right my baby is 4. I can't believe it. Time sure fly's when you are having fun! Sydney went to preschool in her birthday clothes (very exciting let me tell you) and my mom and I brought cupcakes in at the end of the day. She just lit up when everyone in her class sang Happy Birthday to her. It was so cute! It was also the 100th day of school so all the kids got together with 100 glasses to celebrate. After school we went to swimming lessons then out to dinner. It was a great day for everyone. At least until the sugar overload kicked in and she turned into a crazy girl. Thank goodness it was late enough for bed!

Hayden's hip ultrasound

Hayden had her ultrasound of her hips today and from what the tech said her hips are perfect! They did not dislocate at all when the tech manipulated them. Yeah!!! She is doing wonderful and growing like a weed! I think she has gained a pound in the last week, alot of it in her cheeks. She looks like a different baby with some meat on her bones. Oh and by the way 4 years ago right now I was in labor with Sydney! Yes my baby is going to be 4 tomorrow.

New pictures of Hayden

Hayden is doing wonderful. We went to the doctor on Wednesday for her 2 week check up. She weighed 6#14 and was 20.5 inches long. She is 7 ounces above her birth weight which is perfect. Dr. Apley did notice a hip click in her right hip and with the history of her being breech she wants her to have an ultrasound of her hips. She really thinks that everything will turn out normal but wants it done as a precautionary measure. She will have that done when she is 4 weeks old. Sydney is still so good with her but she is driving me and my mom crazy! She is very whiny and demanding. I really think most of it is because she is bored. I am really glad for all of our sakes that school starts again on Monday! I took some pictures of the girls the other day and I think they turned out pretty good.
