My 3 month old.....Sleep patterns!!

Hi all!! It's been a crazy week for me already! First thing is that she loved her swimming lesson!! Her instructor said she was so good and that she loved her!! She slept all day on Monday & then that night on she has has a different sleep pattern!!  She doesn't nap during the day for more then 45 minutes at a time!! She now sleeps at night for about 2-3 hours and is getting up! We just increased her feedings from 4 oz to 5 oz and she seems to be doing much better. She was sleeping though the night since about 7 weeks old, but now the last week she's onto another pattern. I'm unsure what it might be. I am also introducing her to oatmeal two times a day, nothing crazy I'm doing 1oz of formula and about 1 or 2 tablespoons of oatmeal. She loves it and is ready for more feedings of it. I am waiting until she is 4 months old to feed her more. I know she is going to love all the food I am going to make her! We recently bought the baby bullet and I can't wait to use it and have Gabriella try all the fruits and veggies!! It will take about 17 weeks for her to try all the stage 1 foods. I am going to make everything for her!!

I think Gabriella thinks she is grown up!! She wants to sit up all the time, she wants to be with us all the time, she wants to walk & talk already!! It's so funny to see her coo and now she is growling like a lion!! HaHa!! It's to much I just laugh and laugh at this adorable baby!! Let's see what the rest of the week will bring us!!

Hello!

Hello!! I created this site so I can just write about my life in general. I may write about anything and everything that goes on in my life. I guess my first writing will about me & my family.

My name is Nicole and my birthday is May 3. I live in Suffolk County, NY. I have my masters degree in Special Education. I am a teacher. As of right now, I am teaching Adult Education two times a week at night. I love working with the adult population.

On December 24, 2010, my husband and I welcomed our first baby girl into this world.
Gabriella Nicole was 6lbs. 12oz & 19 inches long. I had a very child birth according to my doctor and mother! I don't think anything about child birth is easy!! I had to have a c-section as well. It was all worth it because she is the light of our lives! Now, I couldn't imagine my life without her in it! 

I got married on December 6, 2008 to my best friend Sevak. We are very happy together and love to just hang out and watch a good movie or even watch some TV together to unwind from our busy day. 

He has got to be the best husband & dad ever!! When I came home from the hospital I was in a lot pain & couldn't really walk that fast! He helped me so much with Gabriella. He even took off an extra week to just stay and hang out with us and help me out the best way he could! 

I am truly blessed that I could stay at home and relax and play with Gabriella. I went back to work as of March 1, 2011. I am only back part time but out of the house for six hours a week. Like I said earlier I teach adults. I teach ESL to Spanish speaking adults. I love it! It's a very rewarding job. 

Now that the weather is getting nicer, I am going to be going out more with Gabriella. She loves the outside and usually takes a longer nap while she is out doors! She enjoys her long walks in her stroller! I can't wait until the summer so she can play outside and play in the sun!! 

I just signed her up for swimming lessons!! She starts on Monday @ 11:30am!! We are thrilled to take her!! She loves her nightly bath and is so relaxed after she comes out. I just went out to get her a bathing suit, swimmers, & cloth diapers!! I will keep everyone posted on how she does her first day!! 

Have a great day everyone!! Thanks for stopping by to read my blog!!
