Guess What????

Little Miss has FINALLY rolled over!!! She rolled over Sunday after we had gotten home from church. Justin had her laying on a blanket in the floor and all of a sudden she just rolled right over! We kept putting her back on her tummy and she would roll back over to her back... she did this probably 6 times! I am so happy to see her do new things and Justin, Ashley, my niece Amber, Carson and I were all able to be right there when she did it for the 1st time. We were all so excited for her. She is growing waaayyyy too fast!

I know that I have been so horrible at blogging lately. Sometimes I just hate not being able to post all of her pictures, so I just don't even bother! But this will be over in February, hopefully! OH I CAN NOT WAIT! You all will get so tired of seeing my Little Miss' face! She is definitely the high light of our lives. :)

4 Month Check Up... WOO HOO!!!

Yea, SO...I haven't even posted about Little Miss' 4 month check up appointment....Am I a bad parent OR WHAT??? LOL! I have been running so crazy lately. I seriously have had clients telling me "ummm, can you get me in ASAP!" I have had soooo many messages and phone calls to return and I am sure that they have literally thought that I had forgotten about them. Gosh, sometimes I feel like I am running a million steps behind everything else. But, I am proud to say that I have FINALLY gotten all of my phone calls returned, I think! ;) I was only able to work 1 day last week because Little Miss was sick and pitiful. I have been back all this week, but didn't get to work on Tuesday because it was Little Miss' appointment, and when she has to get shots, I just go ahead and take off the whole day in case they make her sick. So what did we learn at her 4 month check up???
  • She is weighing in at 17.11 lbs!!! She is in the 97th percentile in her weight. YAY!! She is such a precious little chunker and we just love it. She is just sooo healthy!! :)
  • She is 27 inches long! She is in the 97th percentile in her heighth, as well!
  • Her head size is in the 50th percentile!
  • We get to start some sweet potatoes!! Ohhh, how I have been waiting to do this! I haven't done it yet because I wanted to wait until the weekend so that I could be with her for a couple of days to be sure that he doesn't have a reaction. He told me to start her on cereal in a bowl, but I had actually started that on the Friday before! Ooops... (I just couldn't wait)

Everything else was absolutely perfect with her. We are so lucky and blessed to have such a healthy and happy baby. She, of course, was all smiles to see her Dr.!

The rest of the week we have just had a super busy week. I have pretty much just worked and worked trying to get as many people taken care of as I could. With Thanksgiving coming up, everyone is wanting their hair fixed up! :) I did get to get 2 visits from my little Angel at work, though! Her Aunt Hee Hee brought her to see me on Thursday and today she and her Daddy came to visit me and brought me lunch. Aren't they just so sweet?! We have another crazy busy weekend! Thank goodness it is finally here!!!!!!!

HALLOWEEN...even though I am about a week late :)

Our Halloween was a great night. I really enjoyed getting Little Miss dressed up and ready for her very 1st Halloween. Although she will not ever remember this, it is just simply the memories that we are making that I LOVE!
Here is a picture of Little Miss, my neice Autumn, my nephew Carson and my Grandad

Pretty much just a picture post, but I hope you enjoyed! We are so blessed with our baby girl and also with our FABULOUS families!

Crazy, Busy, So Called Life...

I haven't forgotten about my blog...just been crazy busy! First of all...
How is that even right?!? It seems like just yesterday that I got a phone call saying, "Kelly, are you enjoying your 4th of July? Well, just wanted to call and congratulate you because you and Justin have been chosen for a baby girl. She was born today and she is perfectly healthy. Are you ready to go the hospital to meet her?"...I don't think that anything from here on out in my lifetime will top that moment in our lives. To all of the people still waiting...Don't get discouraged because you just really have no idea what kind of wonderful is in store for you. I wish that I could relive those hours over and over. That was the best day of my life. I love looking back at her hospital photos and just reliving that feeling of "Can this be real? Is this really happening? Is this perfect and beautiful little baby girl really OURS???" Ahhh...adoption is an amazingly wonderful, humbling and blessed thing. I thank GOD every single day for our perfect little blessing that is actually 4 months old today!!!
Little Miss has actually been sick since Sunday. I have been out of work all week with her, which I LOVE, but I hate that she has been sick. She has been running a fever off and on since Tuesday. It has stayed between 102 and like 99.9, but this morning it was FINALLY 98.8 and I hope that it will stay down today. We went to the doctor on Tuesday and he didn't really know exactly what the problem was because she was still so smiley (she really is just always smiling) and she didn't have any congested symptoms. But, yesterday she started being congested, so we now know that it is just a cold virus. Her ears are great too, so we just have to let this run it's course. Hopefully, it is over.

I have started my carb diet back... :( I started it on Tuesday, so this is my 3rd day! My days have consisted of

  • Tuesday...breakfast- eggs and fried bologna; dinner- chicken from Zaxby's
  • Wednesday...breakfast- eggs and fried bologna; dinner- green beans and grilled chicken
  • Thursday...breakfast- chicken from lastnight scrambled with eggs and cream cheese; don't know what I am going to do for dinner yet!

BLAH...eggs, meat, green beans, cheese...this is what my life will consist of 2 WHOLE WEEKS...I want a candy bar so bad! HAHA! Oh well, I will make. :)

So, I am going to try to go back to work today and hopefully my baby girl will feel better. I have a lot of things to post about that I need to catch you up on, including HALLOWEEN AND TRICK OR TREATING!!! So much fun!! I will do that maybe tomorrow! I am off to a long day at work today! Have a great day!!!
