My Baby is 1 month old!!

I know its easy to say I cant believe it but I cant believe it!! Time flies, I know I have a 8 year old who thinks shes 13!! Karina has been making more noises, cooing and smiling more. Which is great when I video-talk to my Mom in Florida. My only complaint is the lack of sleep and things I have not been able to accomplish in the last month. I HATE sitting around and not getting things done, and when you have and infant that nurses every 2 hours, its hard to eat breakfast. So recently I have figured out the method, when she naps I have to run around like a crazy woman and get things done. CRAZY!!
Kyla started 3rd grade wed. The other moms on the block have been so kind to carpool while I'm home with Karina, cause honestly I don't know how I would get out the door in the morning. I do not remember it being this hard the first time. Every day is an adventure in this house, lets see what today leads. !!

Baby is Here!

Last week on Wed August 11th we welcomed Baby Karina Macie into the world,she is tiny at 5 1/2 pounds but absolutely precious in every way. I forgot how small a baby can be until I held her. The labor went very well, I had an epidural and pushed for 3 minutes. My husband was with me the whole time and I couldn't of asked for a better nurse. If anyone lives in the southside MA area I highly recommend delivering at Sturdy Hospital.
I will post more pics soon!!

Baby Name Help!

So my due date is arriving tomorrow!! and my husband and I have not decided on a name. I know Ive had 9 months and more to come up with something but honestly, I'm picky(who isn't with naming there child), and can not agree with anything. My daughter was easy, I saw her name and knew that was it. This one I have narrowed it down to 3 names and we cant agree!! I need help, I think I'm going to think of a name after her birth and be upset. I'm getting nervous and the time is coming and I need some ideas.. Have any??

I might be nervous to go thru the whole birth and pain of having a baby, but I'm ready for her to come out. I'm tired and cant sleep. Not that any of this will change once shes here, but at least I will be able to meet the little one. I'm getting very anxious and the due date is this Friday. With no signs of contractions, maybe my water will break?? I hope I can meet her soon. !!

Baby Bag

Here is the pic of the diaper bag, I bought recently in the cape. Its Very Berry print by Vera bradley.

Baby's Room

We have finally put together the baby's room. I wanted to share some pic's.

With a few shelves to hang and pictures to put up we are almost done, I'm excited how it came out.

*Our daughter painted the picture next to the window.

Weekend at the Cape...

We decided last minute to take a weekend away at the cape. Going there as a kid from Connecticut, it would take us 3-4 hours, now we live only 30 mins from the bridge. I can only hope one day we will be able to have a second home there. As peaceful as it is beautiful it's close.
This past weekend we went to Barnstable and Brewster. It is more of the peaceful side as I would like to call it. We were able to spend some time at the beach and do some local shopping.

Our first night we walked over to a local restaurant, where we had some great seafood on the pier.

After dinner we drove a bit down 6A and came across the Brewster Scoop! Great place for an ice cream, the line was out the door and the flavors were to die for. If you ever check it out try the purple cow, with blackrasberry ice cream with chocolate chunks, YUMMY!!

One of my favorite places to walk around was Mashpee Commons, which has everything from locally owned gift shops, for pups to household items and even The Gap!!

On the way home we stopped at this little gift shop on Rte6a Painted Daisies, located in East Sandwich. I knew it would be a great place to stop just by the amount of cars in the parking lot.We picked up a sweet cape cod candle for our dog sitter, a starfish charm for my pandora bracelet, and best of all I finally picked the diaper bag I have been trying to find in a print I can live with. I am a big Vera Bradley fan but its hard for me to stick with one purse for months and since the diaper bag is $100 I don't think I'm going to be switching the diaper bag out every couple months. I will post a pic of it later today!! Now off to enjoy this beautiful 80 degree weather in New England!
