Some little updates on baby Hailey.  Ever since Utah, she has become a drooling machine!  I think she has discovered her tongue, and between playing with it and blowing bubbles her shirt is always wet.  She has also become quite the wiggle worm at night.  If her binky falls out she whines for it (still pretty much asleep) but won't hold her head still long enough for me to put it back in.  That and chewing on her hands.  I try to stop her so she doesn't start sucking on a finger like I did but it's not always easy haha.  Sitting facing out has become her new favorite position.  She wants to see everything that is going on.  I have become a gaming queen...playing my game while having a baby in my lap (gotta teach em early right? teehee).  One thing I'll never understand is how baby clothes can vary in size so much.  She can fit into some 3 month outfits and yet she's wearing a pair of pants right now that are too big and they are newborn size....what the crap!?  I need to find out where I can get some just little bows to put in her hair.  She has never had a bow in her hair! That's like blasphemy!  And right now she'd need one cause her outfit makes her look like a little boy.  I had people ask if she was a boy when she was wearing pink! :(  Oh well haha. 
I hadn't even noticed that she'd fallen asleep
Breastfeeding has become way easier.  I think it's more that I'm more comfortable and relaxed.  Thanks to my boppy, I'm not stuck sitting in the rocking chair to feed her, and I can do it anywhere.  She knows what she's doing more also, so that helps.  I also don't stress as much about feeding her in public because I just give her formula.  She switches between formula/bottle and me with no problems and it really doesn't happen all that often, but the stress of worrying about it and trying to make it work with the stupid blankie and what not is gone and that is a big help.  I guess I'm lucky she has no problems with either way I go. 
Our water may be turned off for who knows how long again.  The neighbor was mad and frustrated that our waters are connected (he just bought the house and I guess the old neighbor didn't mention that) so he's making us seperate (costing Matt's mom thousands of dollars).  Matt's dad is figuring out ways to maybe make it cheaper and easier.  But either way, I'm sure the water will have to be turned off while the change is being made so that'll be fun....
Well, I guess I'm going to go wake Matt up from his 4 hour nap. Wahahaha  >=)

2 months

Today little Hailey is 2 months old!

It's kind of hard to believe it's already been two months. Sometimes I still look at her and think "where did you come from?"  Weird to think that this time last year I wasn't even pregnant yet.
She is still sleeping through the night (so far *knocks on wood*).  Last night she slept really well.  I put her to bed between 9:30 and 10 and she slept till 9 in the morning.  She has also started doing a lot of new things.  Between trying her hardest to hold up her head, and her new fasination with having to be held facing outward so she can see everything going on, oh and of course the coos....she has also learned her "complaining coos", fake crying, and yesterday we got a couple little giggles out.  I've also witnessed the little breathing thing we do when you've cried too much (it was so funny and cute, but also sad haha) and her little "howl" she does when she's trying to force herself to cry so she won't fall asleep or just wants to be a pain =P
So far she has been a really good baby.  The only time (so far haha) that I've really been frustrated with her is when I was trying to feed her in the car and she kept letting go and pulling the blanket off me.  To make matters worse, we were at a truckstop picking up our friend....nothing like trying to keep covered up with a bunch of men around >.<   It also makes me kind of sad that my box to hold outgrown outfits is slowly getting more full.  I'll be so sad when my favorite outfits don't fit her anymore. 
She has her 2 month check up on Monday.  I'm excited and nervous at the same time.  I can't wait to see where's she at in weight and length and all that jazz, but I also hope nothings wrong.  That and I'm pretty sure she'll be getting some shots...poor little baby haha.  I still don't like shots. 
Well, congrats little girl on making it two months with me as your momma ;)
