This week I also started putting Cora Jane in the bath tub after I give her a bath in her small tub. She is still small so I still bath her in the sling in the baby tub. But I put some water in the big tub and hold her up or hold her floating. She will just sit there and look at her feet or push off the side of the tub if she is floating. She has started to kick and make the water splash. I love to watch her.
We had a lazy Saturday. Donny went hunting for the day so it was just the girls at home. She was really good but at night she wanted to walk. It gets tiring at times because our house is only so big. We washed bottles, vacuumed, danced, etc. She was so ready for bedtime by 7:30. I must add that Cora Jane is sleeping like a champ! She might cry one or two times, but she finds her paci and goes back to sleep within minutes. So, mommy has got some really good sleep the past couple of nights. I pray that it continues!
Sunday I was determined to make it to church. I was going to mom's church since Donny was at work. I kept her on our weekday schedule so that she should be waking up/eating about the time we needed to by at church. She had to get up a little earlier and I was going to feed her once we got to church so maybe she wouldn't spit up so badly. I had also decided that I was going to leave her in the nursery so that I could focus on the sermon. I was so nervous about this. I took her to the bed babies and Harper was the only other baby in there. Mrs. Anita came to feed her so that I could go into the service. I had to keep praying during the service to stop worrying about her. I was so worried that she would scream the whole time or would be a difficult baby. But when I went to get her she was playing and happy. Of course she didn't eat well, but she went down for a 3 hour nap when we got home so she must not have been too hungry. My baby girl loves some sleep and she gets it honestly! (I also got to catch a nap myself!) So, Cora Jane made it in the nursery for the first time!
We also made our first full blown grocery store trip. I decided to put her in her carrier and we walked around the whole store. She only spit up a little which I was thankful for because usually the afternoons are a little worse when it comes to spitting up. She did so good! I got so many compliments on how cute and good she was doing.
Going back to work hasn't been so bad. Wednesday was the first day back with the students and I got so many hugs. I loved seeing all my kiddos. I have a lot of work to do in the library, but I will get it done eventually. I have to keep telling myself that Rome wasn't built in a day. I just have all these ideas and plans that I want to get done and there just aren't enough hours in the day. My to-do list just keeps getting longer. The best part about my job is that I can leave at 3:15 and not have stuff to do at home. And for that I'm so thankful! Getting the media specialist position was a huge blessing and I'm striving to do the best job that I can!
Cora Jane's firsts:
- She went to daycare.
- She is playing in the bathtub sitting up (with help.)
- She stayed in the nursery at church for the first time.
- She had a successful grocery store trip.
- She has also started squealing so loudly. I was washing bottles and I heard her. I went to make sure she was okay. She was watching M!ckey Mouse Clubhouse and just as happy as could be.
And it's shameful to say that I haven't taken any pictures this week!
