No Posting Lately - Nothing New

I am sorry for not blogging more often but I really don't have any exciting to say and work is actually keeping me busy enough that I don't have time to sit down and write a great blog entry.

Lily is doing wonderful - as I am writing this I am sitting in the back office pumping away. We have given her a few bottles of formula mixed with breastmilk because there are some days I am not pumping enough. But we are doing the best we can. I hate pumping and it is usually on a Monday morning she needs the formula because I did not pump enough milk over the weekend and Joe might give her a bottle while I sleep in a little bit or go to yoga. Lily is sleeping really good for only being 10 weeks old. Can you belive she is already 10 weeks? Where did the time go? Oh - back to the sleeping she only wakes once a night around 3:30, sometimes it is 5! If she is not going to sleep in until 6am I prefer that she wakes up at 3ish so I can go back to sleep until 6am.

Mikayla is getting so big and so smart. All the time she amazes me by telling me the next line in her book. She started a new daycare and we love it. She is learning her letters and the other day they made birdfeeders. She is also growing out of her clothes so fast I can't keep clothes on her (that is another story - she loves to run around the house naked. I ask her if she wants to put her clothes back on and she says "I want to be the naked baby for a little bit.") She is wearing 3T to 4T pants and her shirts will have to be a 4T very quickly so that her belly is not hanging out. It is getting nicer outside and now it is time to buy some shorts and short sleeve shirts. She only has a couple of short sleeve shirts.

Work is keeping me busy and I am also looking for a part time job - daycare is killing us but if I quit my job right now that won't work either. I am hoping and praying a waitressing job opens up so I can quit my full time job - stop paying for daycare and pay all of the bills which are piling up - I am really excited to get out tax rebate check in May because it is really needed. We also need to pray that the trailer sells and Joe is able to start selling some real estate now that Spring is here.

I will try to post some updated picturs very soon!

daycare costs are killer! My friend works at Olive Garden and makes pretty darn good money. I hope you find something that can help you guys keep afloat and possibly cut out daycare!
