Baby Magic is 8 Weeks Old!

Baby Magic turned 8 weeks this past Sunday. I know, this kid has too many nicknames! I'm trying to figure out what works. I generally find myself calling her "Booga" which I'm sure she will not appreciate later LOL. Anyway, I digress.

When I called to make her 2 month appointment I was informed that she would be getting immunized (unless I didn't want her to). I'm not that mom though. She is getting her shots! If you don't believe in immunizations, your prerogative. Parents do what they feel is right for their family. Getting her immunized is right for us.

I get her to the doctor's office and she gets weighed. She now weighs 8 pounds 15 ounces! YAY! I'm proud of my little stinker, and proud of myself. She has doubled her birth weight! And I love her new doctor! I had to switch because the last one was a little insensitive and kept trying to convince me that I didn't know when I got pregnant...yada yada. So I had to switch to doctor that would work for us. She is meeting all of her milestones and doing great! She finally smiled at me yesterday and I almost cried! I was beginning to think she didn't like me!

Dairy isn't agreeing with her little system so I have to switch her to Soy formula. **Wishing my boobs would have cooperated and I had been a bit more determined to breastfeed.** After seeing the doctor, we went back to the waiting room to wait for the immunizations. My stomach was in knots like I was about to get 3 shots. I put her on the table and tried to kiss her and love her up to distract her, to no avail. I have never heard my little darling cry so loud and hard! Nor has she ever had a face full of tears! This broke my heart! I wish I could take the pain for her! Her little eyes were looking at me like "WHY ARE YOU LETTING THEM DO THIS TO ME?!" I didn't cry, but I wanted to!

She slept most of the day and night, only waking up to eat. She did not want to be bothered and her frowning face let me know every time that I woke her up. She had a low grade fever, so I gave her some Infant's Ibuprofen. I wish I had known the dosage for her age before getting there, but now I know for the next time. We get to do it all over again in two months. Mommy might need a Valium!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
