A late Post -- Easter

I'm finally getting around to post about Easter!  We had a good Easter, very layed back.  Emma got lots of candy and even some money in some eggs she found =)

My 2 girls on Easter morning.  Alyx's first easter!  I didn't go all out on the easter dresses this year because we really didn't do much of anything, and really a 5 month old in a dress i'm sure isn't too comfy! ha!

My mother in law did Easter at her house for the girls too.  Emma Loved what Mimi got her!

Alyx with her baby chick she got =)

We had an amazing meal!


We had so much food it wasn't even funny.  We were expecting more people, but plans changed and it ended up just being us and Brians parents.  We still had a good time, and ate lots of yummy food!!

A trip to the Farm

Emma has been on Spring school vacation this week.  I so wish we could have gone somewhere really cool, like Disney or something.  But that's kinda hard to do with a 5 month old =)  We've just been doing little things around here that she likes.  Yesterday we brought Em shopping with some money that you know has been burning a hole in her pocket!  She insisted on buying a scooter with it, since the 2 little girls across the street from us each got one for Easter.  She absolutely loves it!  And does really well on it too!  

We went to lunch at Em's favorite restaurant...and it's me and Brians favorite too!

My brother in law and sister in law had asked us to take some pictures of their new little one.  And trust me, i'm no professional photographer at all, but I wanted to share one photo that I love that I took!

He's such a cutie!!!!

This afternoon we took Miss Emma to the Farm.  That was on her list of things to do today!

Tomorrow Emma is going to go with Alyx to her daycare.  We just recently switched daycares for Alyx.  Long story, but we are soooo much happier now at the daycare she is at!  And it's is awesome because during school vacations and summer breaks, Emma can go as well.  They have a daughter that is the same age as Emma...and her name is Emma too!  My Emma is beyond excited about going tomorrow!  

Now I think i'm pretty much caught up on this ole' blog of mine =)

Playing Catch Up!

Well, Hello there!  Long time no "blog"!  It's been just about 2 weeks since I last blogged.  And honestly I really don't have a lot to write about.  Alyx has been super super sick.  But she is finally better!!!  She had RSV, and on top of that she had a stomach bug.  Not fun at all.  And then on top of that, I got sick with the stomach bug as well.  It's pretty hard to take care of a baby and youself when you are sick.  But we are both feeling so much better, and thankfully nobody else in our house was hit with it.
Alyx did awesome with her nebulizer treatments!  She had one every 4 hours (while awake) for just about a week. 
These pictures were from one of our *many* trips to the doctor this week.  Even though she wasn't feeling well, she was still a pretty happy baby!
But she was definately not feeling well on this day =( 
I will leave you with this from my little easter bunny!!!


Alyx Grace * 5 Months Old *

I cannot believe I am sitting here writing Alyx's 5 month post!  I can't get over how fast the last 5 months have gone by.  Time. Slow. Down!!!

She was super interested about the sticker on her shirt, she kept grabbing for it and of course grabbing her bear too!

She is so smiley and happy!  And you would never know she is pretty sick.  We took her to the doctor yesterday because she has had a "cold" for going on over 3 weeks now.  Yesterday morning she was worse than she had been.  After some testing we found she has RSV =(  We have to do nebulizer treatments on her every 4 hours, and she is also on some new meds.  We're praying she feels better very very soon!!

Here are some stats:

Weight: 13lbs 7ozs
Length: Not really sure because they didn't measure her yesterday
Clothing: 3-6 months
Diapers: Size 2
Feedings: Bottles she takes 6ozs at a time usually every 3-4 hours.
We're also on some solids!  Her favorite by far is sweet potatoes!!

Happy 5 Months Miss Alyx Grace!  You are growing too fast!
