6 weeks!

Wow Layla is growing so fast! She is smiling like crazy and loves to "talk" its so sweet. She has been pretty fussy lately though and has decided she no longer likes to take long naps during the day. Which makes it hard to get anything done. I weighed her on my scale and I think she's almost 13lbs! What a chunk. I went to my 6 week check up and all is well. I started Weight Watchers on Monday and started exercising. I still have a lot of weight to lose to even get back to my pre pregnancy weight but i'm on my way.
Layla's Auntie Elise came to visit us for the last 2 weeks. It was great to have her help. I even got to go back to my water aerobics class while she babysat Layla.
I'm currently searching for a part time job. I so dont want to work but I'm going to have to if we ever are going to get out of debt. Sigh.

Layla is 1 month old!

Layla turned 1 month old today! How did that happen? She has been smiling alot and tries to coo. She also has been trying to lift her head. My scale dosnt work very well but I think she is almost 10 lbs. In honor of her month birth day she gave me 5 hours straight of sleep last night! It was wonderful. She has some what of a schedual going. So I can kinda plan things around her schedule. The only thing that hasnt been going so well is her feedings. We stopped breast feeding/pumping because it just wasnt going very well for either one of us. So now we are trying to figure out the right formula for her and she's been very sensitive. She also has decided she wants to eat every hour. Instead of 2 or 3 hours. Its been kinda rough trying to get her back to at least a 2 hour schedule. Vaughn and I are trying to get things back to somewhat normal. I've been looking for a part time job. We just have way too much debt for just one income. Anyways here are some pictures I took today!
