Six Weeks Old...Wow~



I'm telling you, time never went this fast before I had Miss Moon! And pregnancy was definitely NOT that fast! I'm getting better at catching her smiles so on her 6 week b-day I took a couple. I took one of her sleeping (she's getting chunky, and I call her Chunkerbell sometimes...definitely only a nickname Eric and I can use ....and not too often), and than I took a smiling one!

Enjoy the pics! Charlotte and I are going to my mom's (Grandma's) for 3.5ish days and I get to go for my wedding dress fitting! It's been a year since I've seen my dress! And than Charlotte's Yia Yia is going to pick us up on the way to Ottawa, that way she can finally meet my mom! Than Yia Yia's leaving on Friday afternoon (after she's treating me to my very first pedi...)woo woo! So the next update will probably be of Grandma's and pics of all that!

First Father's Day and One Month Old Already!



So we had a pretty uneventful first Father's Day yesterday. Of course I took some pictures too. It was bloody hot and we did go out in the evening with Scott and TL to have some Bubble Tea...it was so darn good and refreshing, but it was so darn hot outside to get to the bubble tea. Oh did I mention that when we got home the elevators (all three) were on the fritz and we had to walk up the stairs...not a big deal? We live on the 16th floor! Good thing we didn't have the stroller with us (she was strapped to me in the Snugli). I can't say that I ever want to do that again.
Anyhow...can you believe she's a month old already??? That's just insane!

First Time On Gym Mat!



What can I say? She's getting too big too fast! Today was the first time I put her on her Gym Mat. Why did I wait so long?

She'll be 4 weeks old on Thursday, and a month old on Sunday! Wow time flies!

What's she up to know? She's smiling :) Also we'll get her weighed tomorrow if I can make it to the Well Baby Clinic.

I think that's about it for now...

Daddy's Snack





So Eric thought he would be funny and he'd try to eat Charlotte...I got it on "film". Isn't that cute? That was on Thursday...Charlotte turned 3 weeks old on that day. Already three weeks old. Can you imagine? Its crazy how fast it all goes and she's so much bigger (I know I've said this before).





Than Charlotte tried to get her revenge and she pulled some of his chest hairs! You go girl! You show him who's boss!! LOL :)

Our First Week Alone

Well altough the day is not over, we've survived the week alone. It ended up being easier than I thought, and yet more difficult. Turns out Wednesday was the worst day. My panic attacks are back (its been 5 years)...I seem to be able to "control" them right now, so I'll skip the doctor part for now, but if they get worse it looks like I'll have to go to the doctor a few weeks early.

Other than that Charlotte Moon started smiling (real smiles!). She did it on Wednesday night but didn't on Thursday. But this morning she was all smiles so the sticker is up on her calendar. Charlotte Moon officially started smiling today at 3 weeks and 1 day old :)

What else is new? Well she now weighs 9 pounds! Up from 7 pounds 10 ounces 2 weeks ago!
Eric gave her her first bottle on Wednesday evening and she loved it. Thursday she got her first taste of formula (one ounce) and today she had 2 ounces of formula. Those bottles were mostly breastmilk but I've decided not to continue pumping, mostly because I don't get much out of it (ounce wise). So the decision has been made and as of Sunday (because I still have a little frozen milk) she will have one formula bottle a day (in the second morning feed) and this will be the only bottle for now. In a few weeks I'll add a second bottle. I did this a week earlier than I had planned...mostly because I'm having a hard time (not with breastfeeding...which makes me feel guilty). We'll see how it goes!

That's it for now...

Daddy Went Back To Work!


So today was the big day! Daddy had to go back to work after being home for 2.5 weeks! Charlotte Moon is 18 days old today! Its crazy how the time flies. I thought today would be so much harder. Mind you I got out with Alexa and Charlotte's having another easy going kinda day, so we'll see when we have a rough day how that goes alone with her.

I need to learn to nap when she sleeps. I feel that since she sleeps 3-4 hours and then another 2-3 hours in the night that I get enough but I'm still exhausted by the time 3 or 4pm hits (like right now). And than I feel like its too late to nap.

Other than that I do miss the constant talking companion of Eric and I'm sure little Charlotte Moon misses her Daddy too! Here's another picture that I took of her today...she's always sleeping it seems! And boy has she changed since the day she was born!

Gimme a Hand?


Here is one of Charlotte Moon's hands. It was taken today. She was sleeping and Daddy's back at work so I was bored! I took tons of her hand (her other one was hiding under cover!

One More Picture...


And here's a picture of Little Miss Charlotte Moon on May 28th, 2006 (10 days old) all curled up and sleeping in her pack 'n' play!

She's just too beautiful!

Charlotte Moon is 2 Weeks Old!


Already 2 weeks old! Time flies....She looks so different already than she did two weeks ago. Also I'm sure she's around the 8 pound mark already! Her fingers are actually getting some meat on them!

She was born on May 18th, 2006 after 26 long hours of labour! She was 7 lbs 10 oz. at birth, and around 7lbs 6 oz when she left the hospital. She was back to her birth weight on Friday May 26th, 2006. So a week later, I wonder where she's at!

She has met her Grandma (my mom), 3 or her 4 uncles (only Steve hasn't met her), her one and only Aunt, her Nana (Eric's mom), and this weekend her Grandpa and Yia Yia are coming to meet her. After that all that's left is her Grandpapa (my dad) but that won't be for a while!

That picture is Charlotte all brand new! She wasn't even 24 hours then :) I guess that's it for now!
