Sweet Taters!

So Lorelei had 3 "firsts" this weekend. She rolled over from her tummy to her back, she ate sweet potatoes and we got into our exersaucer.

She hates tummy time so John does it. I was doing laundry and he yelled for me to come quick to see her do it. She hollers while she is on her tummy until she flips over and then she will smile at you.

Lo thinks that sweet potatoes are the best thing in the world. As she eats, she makes a funny noise like num, num. It's so funny. She opens her mouth wide when she's done to get some more. Next up pears, prunes and green beans.

She's still not to sure about the exersaucer but we tried to show her some things on it and she may get the hang of it soon!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Oh so tired....

So its been a while. We started Lo on oatmeal and she likes it better then the rice cereal. This weekend we are going to start with some prunes and veggies. Yesterday we went to the pediatrician and got our 4 month old shots. Dr. B said she looks great! John and I are very tired because Miss Thing decided at 1:30 that it was time to eat and be up until 5! She also spiked a fever of 102. Mommy stayed home because she would be sent home from daycare.

I have been started on blood pressure medicine because its still high after having Lorelei. They also did an ECHO just to make sure everything is ok. It came back normal. So now we just have to start back at the gym and eating right! Oh a routine would be nice!

Next month is the cardiologist on the 9th and the Heart Walk on the 20th in Charleston. It's going to be nice to be in Charleston and NOT have to visit the hospital.

John is also getting a charity golf tournament together for the weekend of Nov 22 to raise money for our support group, Palmetto Hearts.

Hope all are doing well!

P.S. I forgot to tell you that she found her toes!

Lo giving a shout out to her peeps

Thanks for the hat Johnny, Cynthia, Hunter, Dakota, Lizzie, Remington, John Preston and Tristen.

Rice cereal

Well let's see, today we gave Lorelei rice cereal for the first time. She looked so cute in her high chair. She had an idea about eating the cereal. Its funny, she's eating and making a face like this is gross at the same time. Lorelei continues to grow and is investigating new things. She's starting to grab at things and play with things a little. She hates tummy time still but we are working on it. I am posting some pics of eating the cereal and some more pics of Jack and Lorelei. Oh yeah, we also took a video of the cereal. I will post it after John gets it on the computer and I figure out how to do it. Have a great weekend!

Last week

I feel like I have so much to update about. First off Pediatric Pulmonology called and said that Lorelei's pediatrician recommended her to have the Synagis shot which helps prevent RSV (a virus that can put babies in the hospital). She qualified to have this so starting Oct. 1 she will go in every month to get a shot (poor thing) until RSV season is over.

Jeannette, Marc, Lexi and Jack came on Saturday. Jack is a solid 22lb boy. He is so funny! He army crawls, normal crawls only when he wants to and pulls himself up. He loves the pool and does the chewbacca noise all the time. We had so much fun! I had to work all week so I feel like I didn't really get to see them all that much. He was great with Lorelei and I can't wait to see them together when they come back down for Thanksgiving.

Lorelei is doing well. She continues to grow and is now fitting very nicely into 3-6 months clothing. I have already had to pack up some of her newborn and 0-3 months things. That was sad. I am going to have to get her some new socks because all of her socks are getting too small. Daddy's birthday was Wednesday and we went out to dinner. She does really well when we are at restaurants.

My birthday is this coming week so once again we will be going out to dinner. She will go to the pediatrician Aug 19 for her 4 month appointment and more shots.

I am posting some pics of the past week of Jack and Lorelei.
