Here are a couple of pictures just because she is so cute. She loves to sleep with her hands over her head. She is so funny. She is a really good sleeper which is really nice for me. She has been going about 5 hours lately, a couple times this week she has just been shy of 6 hours. What a good girl. I wished that I wasn't such a freaked out first time mom or you would have all died at what she looked like last night. Kelsi was a little off schedule last night and ended up drinking about 12 oz. of formula within a 3 1/2 hour timeframe. I had given her a bath and was feeding her the last bottle of the night and she was gulping it down. I pulled it away when she was almost done to wipe off her chin and when I went to offer it to her again she projectile vomited I am pretty sure all 12 oz. She has projectile vomited a couple of times since she was born, but this time was unbelievable. It went in all directions, mainly over her head. Her whole face was COVERED with formula. I freaked out and rushed her to the sink as John tried to assure me that it was "just milk" in her eyes and it wouldn't hurt her. Kelsi didn't seem to care that she looked like I poured pancake batter all over her face. Seriously, a picture would have been hilarious, but at the moment I thought she was going to have to go to the emergency room. Oh well. On another note, I started back to the gym about 2 weeks ago and finally had the courage yesterday to go to a "Body Pump" class. It is a 50 minute class where you lift weights for a specific body part (squats, chest, back, biceps, triceps, shoulders, lunges and abs) to a song each. I used to love this class, but today...I cannot walk without looking like...well let's just say it is funny. Every muscle hurts, but I am going back tomorrow. I know I just have to push through the first couple weeks of the class. I have 11 lbs to go to get back to pre-prego weight. I was very excited that the weight came off so fast, but I don't think my body will ever be the same. Good thing Kelsi makes up for all of that and then some!

to be so lucky. I had 11 lbs left to go at 7 months. Then it was so slow to get it down. I was happy to be down under what I got pregnant with Teak with. I still have 4 to when I got pregnant with lt. It has been a lot of hard work. I love being sore though. Water polo would kick my butt into shape but it was hard when people didn't realize I just had a baby. Are you not breastfeeding? What happened? How are you feeling?

What a cutie pie! I'm kind of jealous of her comfy bed--what a nice set up! I bet if felt great to get back to the gym. Keep it up!

That happened to ashlyn but she never ate 12 0z Logan is still only eating 6 oz :) I remember thinking we have to take her to the emeregency room. But I settled down and things were ok. My Great Grandma always told me when babies sleep with there hands above there heads it means there really healthy and a good baby. Both my kids did that :) Wow your better than me I am sitting here eating a donut but it will get to me once this baby is here and my 3 child body will look like I have had 5!!!!!!!!!

sorry about the puke! I had a doctor tell me once that sleeping with arms above the head is a sign that she is in a deep sleep...a full night is in your future soon.
love ya!

That is how Ava slept too, and they look so peaceful I think. She is so cute. I love the Body Pump class too! The first time Ava puked like that I was so scared. Give it a couple months, it won't even phase you! :)
