Last week's Wishes;

1. DO (ONE) SAINT PATRICK'S DAY CRAFT - So I got him to do DIY Slime ... but couldn't get him to do a St Patricks day craft! .... maybe Easter?
2. START WORKING OUT AT HOME - I said I was going to start working out after 4 weeks of having baby girl and here it is, 3 months later! I went ahead and got a membership. I didn't want to but I loved classes that I took. I love Zumba and I can't wait to try more! 
3. PACK FOR MY VACATIONI got every packed the day before and it all fit in two bags!! 
4. POSTING AT LEAST ONE BLOG POST - This wasn't even on my mind on my vacation. sorry not sorry. lol
5. FIND A BATHING SUIT THAT FITS  - I did find one that fits, not how I want it but It's a high waist ed and it covered what it needed to cover LOL 

This week's Wishes;

1. START GOING TO THE GYM AT LEAST 2 TIMES A WEEK - need to lose at LEAST the 20 pounds I've gained since being pregnant. 
2. START SEWING AT LEAST 2 TIMES A WEEK - I've got to get better some how!! I also want to start a new tab for my sewing. I hope to one day be good enough to make her clothes. I just can't deal with how cute she will be in my little dresses!!!! 
teething rings and wash clothes
 baby bibs - which don't fit her anymore BTW lol
 Teething rings and wash clothes - made for some friends that just had baby boys 
Bandana Bibs

3. CALL MY LAWYER - Can you believe it's been a year and a half since my accident? AND I'm still trying to get a settlement. I bet that man just thinks he got away with it scotch free! All I know is I better get a check before Oct 14th 2015!!!! 
4. BLOG AT LEAST 2 TIMES A WEEK - this should be easy considering this is one post HAHAA. I should have this goal as actually LINKing up .... I tend to never do that part.
5. PACK FOR TRIP ON THURSDAY - I am taking another trip (this time with the kids ^_^ ) to Tennessee this week! 

I have a busy busy week! I have an Easter Egg hunt to go to, since we won't be here for Easter, I still want to do something with Josiah around here. I work every morning til I leave. I planned to have Eater pictures taken by a friend, on the nicest day this week. Let's pray it really is nice! That same night I'm having a dinner date with another friend that is leaving VA. Then I leave on Thursday for my trip to Tenn.

I have a few blog posts planned, and I hope I can get them out. Seeing as I'm so busy I'm going to just have to find the time. I'm still apart of that #TeamNoSleep no doubt.

Have a great week!

Amiliana 3 Months

12 Weeks/3 months ; 03.17.15
14lbs oz
23 inches

Hydrocordazone was prescribed for her eczema and has pretty much cleared up.
For the most part in 3-6 months. some 3 still fit though
She is in size 2 diapers, but can still fit size 1, it's just snug.
 I will be doing cloth diapers as soon as everyone gets settled and organized after our vacations.

She is now eating 4 (maybe 4 1/2) ounces every 3-5 hours.  It's usually regular and during the night she is sleeping in 5-6 hour stretches, twice. Sometimes even sleeping through the night! yay for sleep!!

We have transitioned her to sleep in something other then our arms or chest. It's a good start to something wonderful! no co-sleeping anymore. At least not with her !!!

While on her stomach she moves her legs back and forth & she has been holding her head up, she can't help she is so nosey! 
Squealing....and LOUD! lol
Sucking on her whole hand & also biting on the pacifier
Reaching and grabbing
She hears my voice and searches for me

She still loves her bath time
Colorful toys!!! 
Walking around
HER brother
pulling her hair!

Being swaddled
Being carried in the cradle position 

She is still having some outbursts of "colic episodes" it started while I was out of town. My mom also tried feeding her 5 ounces every feeding, I'm thinking it may have been too much for her. And she also started using other bottles other than Dr. Browns. SO I'm hoping that since I'm back (I was only gone for 6 days!!!) she will get back on her regular feeding schedule and not change her bottles up.

Josiah update!

Well I don't want my baby to feel left out when he finds out that I blog in a couple years ( If I can make it that long LOL) So I am going to start doing an update for him!!!

5 years old
52 lbs

He still has some eczema problems but not as bad as when he was a baby. The spot is usually on his arm in between the crease of his elbow.
He is potty trained. has been since he was like 3. 
He is in size 6t-7t.
Size 1 shoe and now actually getting too small I am starting to buy size 2!

I have a picky eater! I blame this part on us because we started spoiling him. 
We are really trying hard right now to get him to eat healthier. He does good some days and others it's a struggle. If it were up to him he would eat pancakes and sausage everyday all day. lol

We co-sleep still. WELL actually he does sleep in his own bed until about 2 or 4 am then he crawls into someone else's bed. whether it is mine or his grandma's. Because the babies arrival, I don't really want to force it on him real fast..Hopefully he will grow out of this soon. He is a bed hog. This is why Amiliana will be in her own bed VERY soon! 

Everyday is a constant struggle from eating, to learning to bed time. 
I think of everyday as a milestone for Josiah. He is getting better at everything but like I said some days are better then others.
He can count to 100 and can even count in 5's.
He is in Speech therapy again (he took it last year)

Disney Infinity (or any xbox game)
watching youtube (on how to play the video games)
Pancakes & Sausage. 
Bath time


Bed time

Weekly Wishes

I haven't posted one of these since December 11th!! BUT It's time again for Weekly Wishes!! 

The Nectar Collective

This week's Wishes;

1. DO (ONE) SAINT PATRICK'S DAY CRAFT - I've been trying to get Josiah off the game by making random things.. like DIY Slime ... play dough isn't working and I'm sure this won't either but it's worth a try!!! 
2. START WORKING OUT AT HOME - I'm too cheap to get a membership right now. BUT I said I was going to start working out after 4 weeks of having baby girl and here it is, 2 MONTHS later!
3. PACK FOR MY VACATION - I can't believe it's already that time! I usually take a trip this time of year and I although I just had Amiliana, I have been a full time stay at home mom of TWO kids for the past three months. This is just a little break. 
4. POSTING AT LEAST ONE BLOG POST - I don't even care what it is about... but I need to make another post this week. Usually having weekly goals on Monday gets me motivated, that and being at work bored out of my mind. 
5. FIND A BATHING SUIT THAT FITS  - this goes back to not working out. I am STILL 170 pounds!!! That is 20 pounds heavier then a year ago. I can't .... i can't right now 

Have a great week!
