Back To Work I Go

So I'm on my 7th week of classes this semester, and things seem to be going pretty smoothly. I have 100% in both of the two classes. The only concern I have is the group project I have for my Intro to HR class. How can you require students to do a group project for an online class? That doesn't seem far I haven't even heard from one of my group members.....hopefully it'll work out okay.

So today Miss. Savannah is 12 weeks old, which also means I went back to work today. And of course I go back to work on a day where I don't get much sleep. Savannah didn't go to sleep until 11 p.m., I didn't fall asleep until 12, then she was up at 2:30, 5:30, and then my alarm went off at 6:30....Went and dropped her off at Scott's mom's house, feed her one last time, then it was off to work. I'll admit, I cried on the way....for some reason this time is a lot harder than with Connor. Maybe because Scott actually brought Connor, and I didn't. Maybe because I now know that it sucks to watch someone else raise your kids.....whatever the reason........I cried.....Thankfully work went pretty fast. When I got there I pretty much had to turn around and drive almost all the way back because I had to take my back to work drug screening. Then between lunch, and pumping twice, before I knew it, it was 5 p.m. and time to go home! Savannah didn't eat much today, probably 5 oz in 9.5 hours, but it was something! I was worried she wouldn't eat anything! Now every day should be better! She also didn't sleep much, but she did sleep a lot yesterday.....Since I've been home (2 hours) she's eaten twice and slept almost all the rest of the time. Guess she missed her mama! At least one of my kids still needs me, Connor is just to independent sometimes and it just seems like he doesn't need me.

Grow Baby Grow

So 8 more days until I go back to work............this count down is not fun at all!! UGH! At least we'll be having some more income to pay off the doctors bills & our CC.Got to look at the positive, right? I also can't wait for us to get our taxes back! $1000 going into retirement fund, $1000 going into the vacation fund (going to Disney next spring with Connor), and then the rest to pay off the CC!

So last night we had Savannah's 2 month check-up, and of course she is perfect! She weighs in at 10lbs12oz and is 24 inches long. At 13 days old she was 7.86% for weight, and now she is 32.06%. For height she was 40.98% and now she is 89.66%. So she's super tall & skinny, just like her daddy & brother. Just to compare Connor was 11lbs14oz and 22inches at his 2 month check up. So she's even taller & skinner than he was, how crazy?? We have enough problems with Connor's pants, so I have a feeling we'll have the same with Savannah.......bring on the adjustable waists & belts, lol.

Valentines Day

So we're still working on Savannah getting use to a bottle. She took the Nuk bottle once over the weekend, but that was it........desperate times call for desperate measures, so I will now be working on it before every feeding.....hopefully she starts taking it more often because I go back to work in 9 days......ugh.....only 9 days?? I want to cry just thinking about it. I'm not excited to leave my baby girl!

So today is Valentines Day. Anyone doing anything special?? We bought a bunch of good food that we will be enjoying tonight. 2lbs of Snow Crab Legs, a large Sirloin Steak to split and some coconut shrimp....yumm!! I'm even thinking I might send Scott to McDonalds to get Connor a happy meal, because it is a special day! So other than our meal, we decided not to spend the money on presents. We pretty much have everything we want/need, so why spend the money on presents just to give presents?? I did pick up a Nick Jr V-Day special DVD for Connor (well and Savannah, but she wont be enjoying that for a couple of more years). We will also be spending our V-Day at the Dr's because Savannah has her 2 month check up tonight. Connor was 11lbs14oz and 22inches at his 2 month. My prediction for Savannah is that she is longer but skinner than Connor was at this point.

Go Pack Go

So Savannah is 10 weeks old today, which means I go back to work in 2 weeks.......she's only taken a bottle once so far, so hopefully something changes in the next 2 weeks, otherwise I don't know what I'm going to do.......on the other hand, I've been pretty productive the last couple of days, knowing I'll be going back to work! Saturday we put our "new" stove in, painted the bathroom, fixed the toilet, put the new floor in the bathroom, and I've been cleaning like crazy. Anyone who knows me, knows my room is always a mess,'s pretty darn clean right now! I washed all my clothes, cleaned out the just have to finish under the bed, the dressers & vacuum!! The next big project is the basement......ugh.........not looking forward to that!!

Well this past Sunday was the Super Bowl! We went over to Aunt Missy's to watch the game, and it was a blast. It seemed to just fly by! Of course we were all decked out in our Packer Gear, and it was great to see them win........even though I still hate Aaron Rodgers.....For the big game we decided to bust open the Salsa that me and Jessica made this past September, and can I say....AWESOME!! Not everyone would like it, it was pretty spicy, but I loved it. There's only 1/3 of the jar left, and I have to try really hard not to eat it all on Scott.......We'll have to make that again next fall!! Well anyways, as everyone should know The Packers Won!! Now Scott & I spend his gift card he got for nfl shop, I'll be getting a new Packer Shirt & Scott wants a hat. Here's a picture of us all in our Packer Gear (as you can hopefully see, I busted out my Super Bowl Championship Shirt from the last time they went.......can't believe I held on to that for that long!!)

2 months

Well I'm really glad that I decided to take off another couple of weeks of work because I get to miss the wonderful "blizzard" that is coming tonight. I'm so glad that I do not have to drive in that! Depending on how bad it is, I just might make Scott stay home from bowling tonight & work tomorrow, but we'll have to see if it's really as bad as they say it's going to be.

Well today is February 1st, which means Miss. Savannah is 2 months old! I can't believe it's been 2 months since she's been born. We don't have her 2 month check up until the 14th, but I know she's grown a lot, at least I sure think/hope so! Last night she took a bottle for the first time, woho! I only gave her 2 oz, just in case she wouldn't take it again, I didn't want to waste a bunch. She chugged that down & wanted more, so I had to feed her more, but YAY that's one less thing I have to worry about in the next 3 weeks before I go back to work....which I'm not really looking forward to, but I guess I can't stay home forever, we need the money!
