Long week

It's been a long week around here. Ryleigh has had a horrible time with constipation. I have bawled right along with her. I think we're through it now. What a nightmare for all of us. We've changed her formula and we're also giving her a bit of apple juice daily. Saturday night I was up with her until 4 AM Sunday morning.

And, she's teething and it's really been bugging her this week. She's done so well with the teething up until the past few days. So, no one around here has gotten much sleep this week and we're all a little grumpy and weepy and exhausted. We got her some pain relief though so maybe we'll all get some sleep.

Her two bottom middle teeth are both gonna come in at the same time it seems. One is all the way through the gum and the other isn't far behind. I can't believe she's getting teeth at 4 months old!

When I gave her a bath tonight, she just giggled and played. She loves kicking her legs and chewing on the wash cloth. She giggled for a long time after she got out of the tub and it was so sweet.

In spite of the exhaustion, I love this little girl so much my heart feels like it might crack into pieces from the weight of this love.

So thankful for our Veterans

May God bless our Veteran's-those who are still living and those who gave their lives to ensure our Freedom.
My Grandpa Russell Cox is a WWII veteran and my father-in-law Fred Peterson a Vietnam Veteran. I'm so proud of them both!

Four Month Check-Up

Ryleigh had her 4-month check-up yesterday and all was well! She weighs 13.8 lbs. and is 23.25" long. Doc said she's perfect! =)

She got her shots and has been doing well with that.

Her two bottom middle teeth are coming in already! One has already broken through the skin! We're pretty excited about that!

We've known Nurse Lisa for about 10 years. While she is no longer with our DR, she still works in the same medical building. So, we had to stop by to see her. She came out to the waiting room to sit with us. lol She was teary eyed and is so happy for us, as she knows of our infertility journey and the pain we've gone through.

Lisa is one of the sweetest people I've ever met!

Election Day

I hope you exercised your right to vote today! We went to vote about 8 AM. We live in a rural area and the wait was less then 10-15 minutes. I think there were 8 people in front of me.

The news on TV is saying that some people in Indianapolis have waited 5 hours in line to vote. Would I wait that long?? I don't know. I can't imagine I would stand in line that long. Maybe if they gave me a chair? lol Would you wait that long to vote?

I propose a new candidate for President! She certainly gets Mommy and Daddy's votes!
