9, 10, 11 and 12 Months

I've been so bad at keeping track of Hannah's monthly progress so I'll just lump it all up for the last 4 months.

Her 1yr stats:

29inches long

Between 10-11 months Hannah was a bear for about a week.  Super grumpy, not eating well, not sleeping well, etc.  We figured it was teething and it was confirmed when her 4, yes 4, top teeth all came in together.  Poor thing!  Her teeth all like to come together and its not pretty

Hannah decided that she didn't need to crawl and only army crawled everywhere.  She had the coordination down great she just wouldn't get up on her knees.  She started walking 2 days after her first birthday and now, now she runs.  She has to keep up with big sister!

We took our first big road trip with the girls in May to visit my friend in Sacramento -16 hrs one way -  Hannah did awesome both there and back.  She travels very well

Hannah eats great, sleeps great and it a blast to have. She is really coming into her personality. She does have quite a little temper though, sometimes its funny and others not so much. Watching her and Mollie interact is really fun - except when they fight.

I love this little girl so much and am thankful everyday that we have been blessed with her in our lives.

7 and 8 Months

Months 7 and 8 have been fun, crazy, stressful, and all of the above.  Hannah was 7 months old on Valentines Day - kind of a fun little fact - and on that day we noticed one bottom tooth coming in.

Well she caught a bad cold (we all did) right after that and was really fussy, and not sleeping at all Next thing we know both bottom teeth were up and out.  Poor thing, they came in fast and painful and I just thought she was having a hard time because of the cold.  We never experienced that with Mollie, hers took forever......and came so slow.  So that was the highlight of our month......not!

Hannah is eating really good and has started some simple, solid foods.  She mainly just mushes everything in her hands then drops it all over the floor.  But still such a fun stage.  No crawling yet but she LOVES to cruise around our kitchen in her little exersaucer and its funny to watch her maneuver around.

She is sitting up great and only falls over when she is reaching for things.  She is officially bathing with big sis which is so fun for her.  She loves to be around her big sis all the time and be doing what she is doing.  I don't want to rush her to grow up but I can't wait until her and Mollie can play more together.

5 and 6 Months!

I am so bad about keeping up with Hannah's monthly progress.

Hannah had her first Christmas and New Year's which was a lot of fun.  I love the holidays so much and even though our kiddos are young it's even funner with kids.

I can't remember her exact stats but at her 6 month check up she was almost 17lbs and about 24 inches.  Above the 50th percentile in both.

We love our Hannah banana.  She is so much fun.

4 Months

Miss Hannah-banana is 4 months old!
Weight - 15lbs
Height - 24inches

She is sleeping in her own room now in her crib.  We started off by putting her in her crib for naps then a couple weeks later moved her in there at night too.  So far so good.  Sleeping is still great - mostly sleeps through the night but will wake once in a while for a night feeding.  We have been blessed with very good sleepers.  I also credit a lot of it to the sleep training book "Baby Wise-giving your baby the gift of sleep."  I swear by it, although I now it doesn't work for everyone.

She has such a fun little personality and is so happy all the time.  Her whole face lights up when she smiles.  She is a slobber bug - seriously I didn't know so much slobber could come from a human.

Now we are preparing for Hannah's first Thanksgiving....and I'm excited to not be nauseous this year!

1,2,3 Months

At Hannah's 1 month appt. she was 10.6lbs and 22 inches long.  At her 2 month appt. she was 12.13lbs and 24 inches.  She is such a chunk and we love it!  I can't believe how fast she is growing.

She started rolling over at 2 months.  At first we though it was a fluke but she continued to do it so we knew it was the real deal.  She is sleeping mostly through the night, wakes up once to eat then goes back to sleep.  She has the prettiest eyes that totally light up when she smiles, and her smiles are the best.  She loves to coo and blow raspberries.  She loves to watch her sister run around the house. She is really calm and likes to relax.  She loves to be carried around while we do things throughout the house with her head just chilling on our shoulder.

It has been so new and sometimes overwhelming to have another baby around but we couldn't imagine life without Hannah.  She just fits right in and we love having her around

Hannah's pregnancy

Since I'm really behind on blogging I'm going to do one post to sum up my pregnancy with Hannah.

First off it was so different from Mollies pregnancy.  I hate to say it but I did not enjoy pregnancy this go all!  I found out I was pregnant right before Thanksgiving after I had been nauseous for 3 days.  I thought it was just the flu cause I had taken a pregnancy test earlier but it was negative.  I know realize I took the test way too early so of course it was negative.  I was almost 7 weeks when we found out so it was nice to find out a little later then usual.  We busted out the due date calculator and found out we were due on 7-14-14, a day after Mollie's birthday.  So that was pretty exciting!

So here is the deal.  I love having my babies in the summer (less sickness) BUT I hate going through my first trimester during the Holiday's.  I LOVE the Holidays but being sick through them is no fun.  The sights, smells, and sounds make me nauseous.  So once again my first Trimester lasted through Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years and then some.  We found out the baby was a girl when I was 19 weeks, I thought it was going to be a boy but nope, another girl.  I don't think I finally felt normal until about 22 weeks.  From there I had about 6 weeks of feeling awesome.  The rest of the pregnancy I was super tired, achy and big (I felt big at least).  And man was it tough keeping up with a very active toddler being all big and pregnant.

When I was about 35 weeks Hannah was already head down.  At my 36 week check up I was dilated to 1 1/2 and 75% effaced.  I knew when the Doctor told me that I would be having her early, and "they" say your second baby comes earlier.  I was already there with Mollie when I went into labor.  So I came home and packed my hospital bag.  But Hannah had other plans for me and I pretty much stayed right there for the next 4 weeks.  The anticipation was miserable and the Braxton Hicks contractions were getting annoying.  It seemed like every time I started to time them they would go away.

So at my 39 week appointment I set up an induction.  I wanted to go into labor on my own again but I also wanted to make sure Mollie would be taken care of so we scheduled the induction for July 10th at 9:00pm.  My sister came from out of town to watch Mollie and we had everything set to go.  Well the hospital called me about 5:30pm on the 10th (Wed) to tell me they were completely full and my induction was going to be moved to Thursday afternoon.  The nurse said they would call me in the afternoon to let me know when I could come in.  I had a good cry, because I was so ready to have Hannah, then sucked it up and waited.  I decided to call the Hospital Thursday morning to see if they knew anything and they said no and that I would have to wait for someone to call me later.  So about 4:00pm I received my call and the nurse told me they were STILL busy and since my Dr was going out of town for the weekend my induction was being moved to Sunday (the 13th).  I'll spare the details but I was pretty pissed off.....  It was awful to keep getting my hopes up only to have them keep jacking me around, and the pregnancy hormones didn't make it much better.

So I called the Hospital Sunday afternoon and they said I was all clear to come in.  Thanks heavens, I couldn't handle being rescheduled again.  So we got to the Hospital at 8:00pm and started the induction at 9......
