Four Months Already!

So its been forever since my last blog, I know, But things are crazy and hectic in the Bates household latley. I started up again at my work as an RN here in town for a Hemodialysis clinic. Its just two days a week, which is perfect for us right now. I love it, I put my two days in and come home and get to spend the rest of the week with my baby doll. She has grown so much in the past few months its amazing how quickly things change!
She is four months old ( almost to the day) and weighs in at 15 lbs 14 ounces and is 25 inches long already! Our pediatritian said that she is in the 95th percentile for everything. Her head growth, height , weight, and development are just perfect! She reaches for everything now, laughs at everyone who says hello, and talks to herself non stop. She loves her walker, we put her in it everyday while she watches sesame street. She especially loves elmo. =)
I have lost aprox 50 lbs since giving birth and have another 20-30 that I would love to lose. I have been trying to hit the river trail or do some sort of physical activity everyday, but its hard with the little one, Im not quit ready to leave her in daycare at the gym =/ . I walk all day long at my job, and when I have some free time I do pilates or sit ups. I have been following Weight Watchers , which has helped sooo much, I love it!

She is sleeping so much better. We started the rice cereal a couple weeks ago and she loves it. Just a tbsp in her bottle and everymorning she gets to sit in her high chair and eat breakfast with mommy or grandma. My mom is wonderful- she comes over to the house twice a week to watch her grandaughter, and were so lucky to have her! My husband wants to start trying again in a year, so we will see how things go and if were able to move into a bigger house and rent out the one we have now. So things have sort of settled into a routine, however hectic it may be, its blissfully chaotic and I wouldn't trade one minute of it for anything! I love being a mom. I love being a wife, this is the perfect life! =)
