Layla is 6 weeks old as of yesterday! She is growing fast and we are learning to do a little more with her everyday. This past week I ventured out with her to run errands like Costco and the post office and it pretty much went well. Except I knew I was a little scattered when I got a phone call from my bank saying I left my debit card and office max 10 minutes before. Whoops!! But I even took her to church last Sunday. She slept most the time in her car seat. And other days this week we went to the park with the girls and for her 6 week mark yesterday, I took the girls to the keiki ponds--kid beach for those outside HI. She slept in the baby bjorn the whole time. I got completely fried with an ugly bjorn tan line in the back, but it felt soo good to get out in the sun and be around friends. At night it has been bouts of crying spells that have been so so long some nights, seriously to my breaking point almost. But I read that 6 weeks is their fussiest age, so I guess she is by the book that way. The girls are doing good, but today they were all begging for some Mommy one on one time, which is hard to give in between feeding, rocking, changing Layla and then trying to feed and clean up after the big girls all day, plus laundry and clean house:). Oh, the life of a mother. So I took some time with Dallas and we cut up one of my dresses that was too small and she sewed a skirt. She has been wanting to sew something forever and has been helping me so much and I think feeling neglected also. Anyway, this is my poor attempt at taking pictures lately. Hopefully since Nathan is home some tomorrow, he can capture some better ones.
ps. My favorite part of the day is Layla bath time. She just loves it!! Oh, and also I have been getting out for some night time walks with my ipod. I do love to blast Wicked Soundtrack, Black Eyed Peas, and Pointer Sisters when I am walking up our huge huge hill we live on. It makes it so fun!
