Yesterday was Hayley’s one month birthday. I can’t believe she’s already been in our lives for a whole month! She goes to the doctor next month. My guess is she’s well over 9lbs given that she was 8.14lbs two weeks ago. Hayley is 21 inches long. She has outgrown her newborn clothes. Somethings still fit, but for the most part it is 0-3 months or 3 month clothes.
We have been home for a few days now soaking in newborn snuggles and sibling cuteness. It’s been really quiet and low-key which is just what the doctor ordered. I opted for an induction on the 24th. Hayley came a lot faster than I thought she would. I’m working on my birth story and will have it up in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime…enjoy some pictures of our first few days home!
It’s no secret Rylee loves Frozen. It was the first Disney movie that captured her attention from start to finish. I’ve lost count how many times she has watched it. One day though, we maxed out at FOUR times, yes FOUR times. I was recovering from the stomach flu and MMR had just caught it so I needed all the help I could get. Rylee’s big girl room isn’t Frozen themed but I definitely pulled some of the colors from the movie. We went with Behr – Monologue for three of the walls and Behr – Fiji for an accent wall.
Last night was Rylee’s first dance recital. She did amazing and had so much fun! Her summer dance class came to an end this week so to wrap things up the studio held an outdoor summer recital. Back in June when we started classes I was really nervous how she would do. It was her first independent class and she nailed it. Rylee didn’t need me at all. I think last nights show was the start of many years of recitals. Dance Moms here I come.
It took me the longest time to decide how I wanted baby girl’s nursery to pan out. I would change my mind every day and felt like I had zero direction. With Rylee it came so easy. She was my woodland baby. Once I knew it was a girl, boom everything fell into place. I found out this baby was a girl and it was struggle city. I found myself liking the exact same things I loved when Rylee was a baby.
