The Terrible Blogger I am

I have been so busy since I have been back at work, that I keep forgetting to update my blog! So just to catch everyone up to speed...Caroline is sleeping really well in her crib. She wakes for 1 feeding still, but I think that will change as soon as she is bumped up to 5 to 6 oz of formula. She doesn't really seem to want to eat more than 4oz, so I can't decide if it is time to bump her up or not. The doc said she wouldn't take 6 oz until around 4 months. She is such a happy baby and has been a blessing to our family. I worried that I would struggle to love a 2nd child as much as I love Parker. Let me just say, I LOVE HER as much as Parker and in a completely different way. Those of you who have 2 or soon will have 2 children, you will understand. And having a boy and a girl is so unique. I didn't realize how different they would be, but they are! Parker will be 5 next Friday. I am completely in shock about that. It seems like just yesterday I was having him. He is such a pistol and keeps us on our toes. He likes to act like he is Caroline's parent, too. He is extremely involved with all things pertaining to "sister." I am enjoying being back at work as much as I can. I miss her, but she is doing so good at her daycare that I really can't complain. Here are a few pics from the past few weeks. Hope you are all doing well!

Sibling love...she is 8 weeks 3 days old here. This is the morning I went back to work.
My precious babies! Every mommy thinks their children are the cutest:)Happy 2 months old to me! I asked David to take a picture of her on her 2 month birthday and this is what we got!!!!! Priceless I know!
My new smocked dress mommy bought for me because she doesn't have time to smock a Halloween dress. Everytime I look at this, I think she is "sitting pretty"Brother was begging to be in a picture. He does have more shirts, but he is completely obsessed with this tshirt at the moment.
Surprise! I guess the flash caught her off guard...I love the expression on her face though.Smiling for mommy and the camera.

This is my new trick, I would much rather eat my hands than suck on my paci. I also like to grab my clothes or my lovie and shove it in my mouth:)Just hanging out with mommy.
Hopefully I will be updating more frequently now. We will see:)

I LOVE Caroline's Halloween dress and all of your new pictures. i am ready to be on maternity leave, but don't look forward to having to return back!

You asked about my favorite places to shop for Tatum, I have a few...I am a GYMBOREE JUNKIE for sure and also like Baby Gap. I have posted before that I also get lots of her clothes at consignment sales. however, the last pictures i posted of Tatum, she is wearing a dress from a boutique in Hot springs. You can look up the brand online, it is Zutano(a little pricy, but too cute to pass up). The tights are the same brand and her boots are from Gymboree. I also bought a few ZaZa Couture outfits too while in Hot Springs. Hope that helps some. Girl clothes are so much easier to find cute things.

Caroline is beautiful and it looks like parker is a great big brother. I am so dreading going back to work. I start back on Monday. I am going to miss both of the girls so much.

I am SO glad to hear that you are doing good with going back to work. I am just sad that we can't have lunch again. Parker is too cute and Caroline is precious. She looks just like YOU!!! Talk to you soon.
