Kelly’s Update

What a busy six months.  It has been so long since I have updated this so here we go:

Libby is six months old as of August 4th, 2009.  She is eating 5 oz per feeding every 3 hours.  She is eating oatmeal cereal in the mornings and beginner baby food in the evening.  She has liked everything so far EXCEPT green beans!  She does not like them at all yet.  She is sleeping between 11-12 hours at night.  She sleeps from 8:00 pm-6:30 am during the weekdays because I have to get her up to take her to Mimi and Papa’s.  On the weekends she sleeps from 8:00 pm-7:30 am.  She is such a wonderful baby with a great personality.  She is so happy all the time.  The only time she fusses is when she is hungry or sleepy.  She is beginning to cut teeth now, her first tooth broke through last night.  She is growing up so fast!  She has her six month check up with Dr. Meredith on Thursday 8/20/09.  We will have definite weight and length then.  We think she is between 15-16 lbs.  We were supposed to have our checkup last week but Dr. Meredith had to leave early, so we had to reschedule:(  I love being her mother and cherish every moment with her.

Stephen is back in school so the Carmichael’s get back in school mode:  work and rest all week and play on the weekends.  I like to take Libby right home on the weeknights so I can spend time with her before she goes to bed since I have been away from her all day.  Stephen is in his third semester of graduate school and has a 3.5 GPA.  I’m so proud of him especially doing that well with all of the other responsiblity he has on him already.  One year to go and we will be celebrating!

On a personal note I am on a quest trying to lose weight.  I am still having some problems with my blood pressure since Libby’s birth so my ob doctor is giving me two months to lose weight and reduce my salt.  Do you know  how hard it is to reduce salt?  I feel sorry for anyone having to be on a renal date, mainly my mom.  I am proud that I have lost all of my baby weight and 5 lbs beyond that.  I have a goal to lose another 15-20 lbs.  I have been walking in my neighborhood with some neighbors 3 nights a week.  It is really making a difference.  I already have more energy and endurance.  My neighborhood has some large hills so that is helping a lot.  Please pray that I don’t have to go on blood pressure meds for my 27th birthday in October.

Well that is the main updates for right now.  Got a busy week ahead with a baby shower and wedding to go to as well as getting through the rest of the work week.   I will update again after Libby’s appt and hopefully last hip ultrasound.

    Wow, that was fast on the tooth thing! The other night when we were over it didn’t seem that she was cutting one. I guess those things just sneak up on you huh! Way to go Libby for cutting your first tooth! 🙂
