Time Flies!

Wow can't believe that it has been a month since my last post!

I'm really fighting with the emotion of having Jordyn attached to me. This past weekend, we went to a Crawfish Boil downtown with some of Anthony's family. They wanted to hold Jordyn but all she would do was scream. She had never cried like that before. She did the same thing to my mom and sister. I really hate that she doesn't want to go to anyone but me. It makes me feel bad for the people that love her and want to hold her. On the flip side, it does make me feel special that she only wants me! I really don't want her so attached to me that she won't go to anyone though. I am trying to find playgroups and mommy's day out so that she will be comfortable around others.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a housekeeper. I will probably never have the cleanest house on the block. I will never be caught up on laundry or dishes. With all that said, my daughter is clean. She is happy and well adjusted. I don't feel bad about not being able to do it all! I do what needs to be done. However, I don't know how single mom's do it! I can't keep up with everything and I'm home everday. Things are about to get easier just in time for them to get challenging again! I love my messy disorganized life!

Jordyn is developing so much! She is picking up her paci and putting it in her mouth. She is starting to do tummy time on her own now too! She has been tolerating her cap for over an hour. She loves my attention!! She is so happy she smiles and is talking more now too. Best thing ever though is she is now eating baby food by mouth! We are also working on getting her off her night feeds so she is now taking 4 ounces when she is not eating baby food! She eats baby food twice a day and get four feed during the day and is fed continuously throughout the night.

Anthony comes home tomorrow so we will have a fun filled next two weeks!

We're Back

For some reason, my blogger was too old and got deleted, so I'm starting a new one. I wanted to start a blog about our family. I know that Jordyn has one for her health progress, but I don't feel right writing about our day to day life and challenges on there. As most of you know, I am currently a stay-at-home mom. I am finding it a little more difficult than I thought that it would be. Just so you know, there is a BIG difference between housewife and stay-at-home mom. When I get really bogged down with all that needs to be done and tired beyond belief, Jordyn smiles at me and it makes it all worth it.

Anthony has another week left at work. I can not wait for him to get home! We are in the process of getting me some Home Care (nursing help). These two weeks without Anthony is tough. Taking care of kids alone by yourself is tiring but Jordyn requires so much more attention. I don't regret any of it. I totally enjoy spending my day with her. I just wish that we could get out and do more. This will come this summer though. What's the saying? Good things come to those who wait!

I just wanted to write and let everyone know that we are back!
