Life at the Funhouse

I have some time to blog!  Babycakes surprised me with a nap, so here I am!  She is still doing well with her sleep schedule.  It varies from day to day, but she is generally taking 4-5 naps during the day and sleeping 12 hours at night, with a feeding somewhere between 3-5am most nights.  Sunday night she actually slept 12 straight hours!  That was awesome!

Babycakes is growing so fast.  She has already outgrown her 0-3 month sleepers!  Her 2-month checkup is next Wednesday.  I will be interested to see how much she weighs then.  I think she is somewhere between 12-13 pounds right now.
She continues to gain head control and strength, and she spent some time in her Bumbo seat for the first time this week.  She LOVED it!  Of course, she can only tolerate about 5 minutes at a time at this point.

Last week was our county fair.  We went on Thursday and Babycakes looked about like this the entire time.  Poor baby!  She pretty much slept the entire day Friday to recover from it.

Princess Boo had a great time looking at all the animals with Daddy.  She loved the horses again and liked the rabbits, but the rooster noises scared her. 

Boo wanted to ride the carousel, so we got her a ticket and Tim took her on.  Watch the progression via photos:




At least she rode on the bench!  Maybe next year...
We are doing Potty Training Take 2 this week with Boo.  I had it in my mind that we would be able to pick up right where we left off when Babycakes was born.  No such luck.  We are back at the beginning again and have had 3 accidents and no successes in a day and a half.  Poor Boo!  There is no turning back though.  We will conquer this thing.  J
That’s the Funhouse for now!  I hope to update again after Babycakes’ checkup next week!

6 Weeks!

6 weeks already?! Where has the time gone?

Babycakes is doing well – growing and changing every day. She continues to sleep well, going for 7-9 hour stretches most nights. She is on a cycle during the day where she is awake for 1-2 hours then sleeps for 1-4 hours. She is beginning to be a little bit more social and gives smiles freely these days. She is working hard at tummy time and has quite a bit of head control. I still cannot believe how quickly this is going. She seems so big already.

We were able to spend a week with our families before the 4th, and we really enjoyed that. Since then, we have just been working at getting back into our daily routines.

We had a 30-hour power outage here early this week, which also means no running water for us since we are on a well system. That was an interesting time. I was concerned about our freezers thawing. We have quite a bit of meat in those, and I had pre-cooked and frozen quite a few meals before Babycakes was born. Thankfully, the youth pastor from our church allowed us to borrow his generator for a few hours to keep everything frozen. We are happy to have our power back though!

Princess Boo is calling my name, so that’s all for now! Here are some pictures in no particular order.
