Day 4


My moms name is Kara- she is my best friend. She has made me who I am as a Mother, Friend, Sister and Daughter! I honestly don't think I ever go more than a day without talking to her- and no more than a week or two without seeing her sweet face!! 

My dads name is Tommy- he is my rock! I can call him for anything and he always knows what to say to make me feel better! I don't get to see him as much as I would like now that I am living in GA- but he is and has always been a very big part of my life!

I was also blessed with 2 amazing step parents- my moms husband Alan and my dads wife Kelly! They also play a big role in my everyday life- I must say I am very lucky to have the 4 of them! They are ALL WONDERFUL grandparents as well! Seeing them love and spoil my little baby just melts my heart!!

Day 3

Ok so this is going to be about my FIRST love! for privacy purposes we will call him B- I met him through a friend of mine when i was a junior in high school- he was 2 years older and didn't go to my school- he was tall- dark hair- and handsome- for me i think it was love at first sight- the first year or so was amazing- we did everything together- but over the next 3 years things kind of went down hill- he drank ALOT and i wasn't really into that- also he would get REALLY mean and im not going to go into all the gruesome details but it was just a very toxic/unhealthy relationship! 

but the make it short and sweet- he taught me ALOT about myself- and about relationships- mostly i learned that you cant change people- they have to change for themselves- besides after out last break up i needed a change so i moved out her to GA- and if it wasn't for that split decision then i wouldn't have met my next love and soul mate!!! i do wish B the BEST of luck in his life- he will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart- Hope you find all the LOVE and JOY you deserve! UNTIL next time <3

Day 2

Meaning behind my blog name:

Pretty self explanatory! =) I actually got the name from Tori Spellings book "Mommywood"- I started this blog at 20 weeks gestation of my pregnancy and it was titled "Parents to Be" so once miss Lily entered the world I thought it pretty appropriate to change the name to "Mommywood"- so its now about my every day life with the most precious person I have ever met!! <3

Sleeping Update!!

So.... were about 1 week into our new routine with getting Lily to sleep thru the night- and i must say things are going WAY better than i thought. So basically this is the way things are going now- Lily takes 3 naps a day still- usually about an hour long- sometime she will have 1 that's 2 hours.. just depending on how busy her little day has been. i am still exclusively breastfeeding *and plan to until shes on whole milk which will hopefully be at 1 year* so i will nurse her when she wants it... *she will sign most of the time when shes ready* usually 30 or so min b4 its time for her nap. then i let her play for 10 or 15 min and just go lay her down in her crib. its pretty dark in there and nice and chilly *just the way this family like it!* she has a couple stuffed animals, a blanket, her night-night *a taggie blanket she ALWAYS has when shes sleeping... naps, car, night etc.* and also a soothie pacifier. she doesn't really suck on the passy just chews- and she will talk.. maybe whine a little but usually only for 5-10 min and she puts herself to sleep. 
At night our routine starts at 8- she gets ready for her bath, we usually let her stay in there for a good 20-30 min. as long as the water doesnt get cold- get dressed, brush hair and teeth, rock in the rocking chair while reading a couple books, then nurse to sleep or to a pretty drowsie state. she does wake up a few times here and there- not every night but sometimes, and we just give her a good 10-15 min as long as shes not screaming which is not usually the case, and she almost ALWAYS puts herself back to sleep on her own!!! shes out by 9 and up for the day around 8! pretty amazing! i dont think i was giving her enough oppertunity to figure out how to put herself to sleep on her own- i would go in there to comfort her as soon as she would awake- but now shes sleeping like a champ!! which is another thing this family is good at!! =) we are both alot happier *which i didn't think my child could be any happier!!* and our days are filled with even more smiles and laughs!!! <3

one month later....

so i just realized that i haven't done a blog in a full month!!!! YIKES- =) i really like to do these things so that one day lily and i can look back at all the things we did over the years- in words... and pictures!! and look at me- haven't taken ANY time to get on and write about life! =( *i think i have mentioned b4 that im a HUGE procrastinator... well heres proof! =) *

anyway... back to BLOGGING! in the past month lily has grown into such a busy little baby! she crawls all over the place!! im chasing her somewhere almost every 5 or 10 min. she loses interest in things pretty quickly- actually its more like she sees something new and HAS to explore! i love it tho- seeing her sweet little face when she discovers how to do something new- 
lately she has been getting into the books on tables, and book shelves. unfortuntly for me they are all within reach for her! =) she will pull them all down and scramble them along the hardwood floor! she also like to push off the blankets i always have nicly folded on the bottom of a side table in the living room... climb up on it and look out the window. its preety stinking cute! shes also figuring out that she will fall if shes not careful.. so when shes been standing and is ready to sit back down she will slowly lower herself to the floor holding one hand down to catch herself! i love how smart she is, and how cute everything she does seems to be! 

She is currently cutting her 4 front TOP teeth.. so that makes 6 now!! we have started to venture into table food and found that she LOVES green beans- she sucks out the beans first! =) she also likes spaghetti, french fries, bread, mashed potatoes, and now that i think about it- pretty much everything we put in front of her. im hoping she stays my good little eater!! =)
Were still in size one diapers, 3-6 month clothing, and most 6month clothing. Shes starting to "cruise"!! says "dada" for almost EVERYTHING!! but DOES know who "dada" is! were venturing into getting her sleeping thru the night without needing help getting back to sleep- which is going pretty well!!! 
Hands down this has to be my favortie stage so far! she has the cutest personality- and shes just so happy all the time!! Until next time <3

7 months <3
