Mall outing number 2

your shocked aren't you? here just two weeks ago I swore I wouldn't go to the mall until Jada was old enough to ask to go and what did I do... you got it, I went back out to the mall, I had to concur the fear, and well my mom came along too which made me feel more confident.( thanks mom)

we had a BLAST!! Jada was such a good girl, she slept the WHOLE time I mean the entire time!! todays shopping trip was supposed to be all about "me" you know I need come clothes now that I am not working and not prego, because that made up most of my wardrobe before. I got some super cute sweaters, I seemed to have been drawn to them all day long. but when we got home and I unpacked my bags, I noticed that little miss Jada got 4 outfits from the gap, 4 from Macy's and a cute sweater from Target, oh and we can't forget her precious little easter dress!!! it was a fun day I must say and I am so tickled with her easter dress!

while at the mall I just kept thinking I can't wait to go home and shock all my readers that yes, we did it we have a successful trip to the mall !!!

transition continued...

Today marks one week exactly from when we started the sleeping transition for our little girl, and I am pleased to announce that she is transitioned!! we are so excited, we didn't slip once during the whole time, but I have to admit she made it pretty easy on us. She has spent every nap and every night sleeping on her own in her pack and play, and even some naps in her swing. We are so proud of her. With her transition I have been able to pay closer attention to her cues now and after keeping track of her feedings and nap times I have noticed a trend... I usually BF her at around 7:30 then give her a bottle ( dream feed) at 8:30, I then BF her for just a quick feeding at 9:00 and then she is in her bed by 9:15 and she's asleep till 2 or 3:00, however last night she was down till 3:45! we couldn't believe it. the transition went a lot smoother than I ever dreamed, honestly the first night was the only bad night, and don't get me wrong that first night was really rough, but she is a quick learner I guess, because that very next morning she was napping in her play pin, and swing.

this transition has been very nice for our family, although I miss the "all the time access" to kissing my little girls sweet head and breathing in her yummy baby smell, its nice to cuddle with the hubby again, and nice to be able to fix all my meals at home with both hands now instead of one :)

were so proud of you buggy!
