Hello out there *cricket cricket*.....
I know no one reads this, but whatever I'm still gunna write and pretend I have an audience!  I'm thinking of starting to vlog again, but I dunno....not really much going on.  Plus in the YouTube world, people who try to vlog now are laughed at because so many YouTubers already do it.
How are things?  Good I guess.  Right now we are in this kind of....funk in our life.  We don't know what to do about work and money, getting used to having an addition, etc.  Sometimes it feels like something is wrong and if I could find it and fix it everything would feel like it used to (at least more normal then now).
Brooklyn is doing well.  Everyone says she's bulking up (because she was so skin and bones born), but it's hard for me to tell.  Yea yea I know it's because I see her 24/7.  This week she's only woke up before 7 once.  Lucky!  I still wish I could get her to 4 hours in between instead of 3 but not sure how I want to do it.  Also, need to make her 2 month checkup appointment....weird.  But that also means (probably) shots! So sad.  We are going to bring Hailey with us to her appointment because we're thinking of changing her over to this doctor....yes right now our kids have different doctors haha.
Speaking of Hailey, she's in this phase of being bratty right now.  She's not as bad as some kids I've seen, but she's defiantly not the angel she was haha.  She's just got this killer attitude of "I'm the boss" going on.  Getting in my face and telling me to 'get' or 'shoo'.  Hope it ends soon *shakes head*
But she's such a doll!  I was thinking of getting her to sing a Shirley Temple song and put it on YouTube, but she's still pretty little for memorizing a song like that.  Plus she gets distracted pretty easily haha.  She knows the first line of two songs but that's it.  I did make a video of her for a DisneyJr thing the tv is doing where you tell what you're going to be for Halloween.  I mainly did it to see if she could follow instructions.  Didn't take as long as I thought it would to get it right.  I filmed maybe 6 or 7 shots.  But man is it ADORABLE!  I know I'm the mom so I don't get much say but she's one of the cutest I've seen do it.  Given there are only like 11 entries which is weird to me.  So that means they'll probably all get on tv since there isn't very many.  I don't know if they only one or what, but I know they show them on Friday on Disney Jr.

6 week follow up

Today was my long awaited 6 week appointment.
Do I dare say I can't believe it's over with when I sat and complained it wasn't coming fast enough? haha.
Well, he said everything was fine and I can go on about my life.  I'm a little bummed he didn't actually like.....look at my stitches but whatever. (he's one of those doctors that does his thing while looking away haha)
So now I can start working out!  I think imma start out slow since I didn't work out much while I was pregnant because I always felt sick, and of course, these 6 weeks.  Time to dust off my Wii Fit!
I'm also trying to decide what kind of birth control to get.  I want a Mirena, but I'm a little nervous of it.  Because I googled it, my Facebook ads have been for it, and one has been a "Mirena lawsuit" from people who have had it float up and implant somewhere, but the doctor was saying that that's a very slight chance.  Also, (tmi warning) I'm afraid for the possible 6 months of heavier bleeding and spotting.  So I can't make up my mind.
Any Input?

Time to Exercise

Later today is my 6 week appointment.
Once I get the green flag on being back to normal and being able to exercise again Matt and I are going to kick it into gear.
The hard part for me will be diet.  I'm such a picky eater and the things I do like aren't really that good for you haha.  But I have heard that healthy eats is an acquired taste.
This time around, when we start we are going to take before pictures and I think I'm going to log my weight and (maybe) measurements.  It's hard for me to keep motivated, especially when it's hard to see results.  So I think if I document it so I can see even the littlest change, it will help me keep going.  I'll probably post it on here too to keep me wanting to share my (hopeful) success.
Some of the things I need to do are cut out soda and stop snacking, among other things.  I'm also bad at portion control.  I hear if you drink 1-2 glasses of water before you eat it helps. I'll probably have to start out slow and work my way up as far as exercise goes because it's been a long time and I'm sure I can't do the P90X cardio video anymore haha
I'm open to all tips and tricks!

You're such a beautiful, bubbly little girl!

One Month

Today Brooklyn is one month old!
She still seems just as small to me as she did when she was born.  People tell me she's fattening up a bit, but I don't see it.  I know it's because I'm always with her, but man she still seems so thin and tiny.
I'm not going to lie, the first of the month was really hard for me.  Baby blues are killer.  I had them last time, but they were just different this time.  I had (still a little sometimes) a bad case of "mom guilt" bringing this little person into Hailey's world where she was queen.  And, I'll admit, the bond with Brooklyn wasn't as instant as it was with Hailey.  I just felt yucky all around.
I still sometimes get my anxiety attacks, and I'm hoping they'll go away in the normal length of time.  If not, I guess I'll have to ask my doctor.  But it's not near as bad as it was.
Brooklyn isn't a very good eater, which is a little frustrating, especially because Hailey was such a good eater.  I'm still waiting for her to be able to go for 4 hours instead of the 3 right now.  But I get the feeling I'm not helping because I like to be on a schedule because I'm OCD sometimes haha and when she switched between 3 and 4 hours in the day it knocks me out of balance.  But I guess I should let her stretch if she's willing so she doesn't just get used to 3 hours even if she can go 4.  Then once she can go that long I'll get her onto the schedule I want.
She is an amazing night sleeper though *knocks on wood*  Not as good as Hailey was, but still amazing.  I put her down between 10 and 11 and she sleep till between 6 and 7, sometimes 5 but not usually.  (Hailey was pretty much 9-9 always).  Once she starts sleeping past 7 I'll start trying to put her down at 9 like Hailey.  But I feel like maybe she's gunna start getting up at the same time just because she's used to it (like the 3 hour thing) and I don't know what I should do if that's the case.
These last couple of days she's also started finding her voice.  She coos every once in a while. I can't wait for that to be more of a thing.  I also can't wait for her to start wanting to follow Hailey everywhere.  Hailey will love that so much.
So it's been an interesting first month.  I can't wait for her to get bigger (and chunkier).  She's already starting to push up and hold her head up.  Excited to have Hailey observe her first milestones with us.
(also excited for 2 more weeks till my 6 week appointment haha)
