My, how my daughter has developed her scream! I hope she can put them to go use later on in life and be a good singer! lol
Brooklyn turned 11 weeks this past Wednesday. It's amazing to think that I've already had her around for that long. She is such a joy to have around. I have to remind myself how thankful I am of her when she's having her meltdowns though...those are trying times of motherhood!
We had her 2 month check up last week which I never ended up posting about. Her stats were 13.2 lbs and 24 in long! She's a growing girl! She got all her shots and did very well with them. Thankfully they do a combined shot so she only got 3 needles and one oral vaccination. She did cry pretty hard during the shots but calmed down very quickly afterwards and then slept for the rest of the night and all of the next day. I guess those shots just wore her plum out!
We are in the process of treating her scalp for her cradle cap...or cradle "crap" as I like to call it. She has also developed what appears to be eczema. She has a few red, very dry, flaky spots. One on her cheek, one over each eyebrow, and a couple on different spots of her head. It's very different from the cradle cap so I don't think that's what it is. I called my pediatrician and left a message about it but haven't heard back from them. I'm going to try some Eucerine lotion on it (suggested by my aunt) and see if that works. Hopefully it will.
Brooklyn is still on 4oz every 3 hours or so. She has taken to "snacking" a lot lately though which can be frustrating. She can't seem to stay awake for a whole bottle lately! That bottle is like a drug for her. As soon as you put it in her mouth, her eyes close and she gets all sleepy, even if she was just screaming and crying for it! It's actually pretty funny to watch how she does this, BUT, then she ends up waking up a lot sooner and wanting more bottle and then falls asleep again. So round and round we go with this. She actually takes her bottles better during the night.
Her sleeping habit has taken a turn for the worse these past few nights. She was doing really well only waking up once in the night at 4:30 am and sometimes sleeping all the way through till 6 or 7am. The past few nights she has woken up almost every 3 hours. On most nights Waylon will get up with her since I have to go to work early everyday and he only gets up two mornings a week to go to school at 9:30. Even though he's the one getting up with her, it's still hard for me because I still wake up and will be awake for most of the time he is feeding her and burping her. It's really hard to sleep with that going on in your bed. lol
In other news...
I'm getting back into the swing of things at work. Everything there is starting to feel very natural and it's all coming back to me. For the most part I have good classes. There are two classes that are more difficult than others because the kids like to talk so much. One class it's really just the talking because they are a pretty small class compared to my others. However, the other one, it's more a problem of just having so many students in that period. I have 27 students in that class and in the other 5 only 18-21 students. Those extra 6 students do make a big difference. Over all though, I have to say that the students themselves seem very nice and overall well behaved and I think we're going to have a good year. Tomorrow we have a half day with the kids and then the rest of the day we have teacher training and get out at 3 so I'm pretty excited about that. I'm showing a movie in my class. In Spanish of course! The kids just love watching my Spanish movies...hahahahaha (evil laugh)...NOT! I just remind them that if they want to complain about watching Spanish movies, then we won't watch them and we'll do extra work. That usually puts a stop to the complaining.
I will have pictures on my next post I promise. Right now I need to eat dinner and then go pick my baby up and make it back for The Office, Community and Parks and Recreation. I'm recording Grey's and will watch it later this evening or tomorrow.
Life is busy and stressful but I'm very blessed!
