My little girl is growing so fast. She has to be at least 8 pounds now. she is also staying awake more during the day. She is so much more alert. I love when she just sits there and seems to be taking it all in. Oh and for the last I think 5 nights she has slept from midnight until about 7 in the morning. I think she noticed Mommy is a lot more fun during the day when she gets her sleep at night. I've also gone back to work now. I did a little bit before my parents came, but back full on now. Its actually been pretty good. It can be a little hard when I am nursing and someone needs me. But for the most part the girls I watch have been very helpful. I am sure when Kaiya gets a bit more mobile she will love watching them in all their silliness.
It was so fun having my parents out here in North Carolina. It had been over a year since I had seen them. Last time was the day after my wedding and now here I was a Mommy myself. It was so neat to see them hold and just love little Kaiya and get to share with them our little girl. It was also fun to get to take them to the beach, and all the different parks and other places we just love in our town. Now I just need to get my sisters out here. I know they would just love it. ( hint hint) My Dad left last Saturday but my Mom was able to stay until Wednesday. It was nice to get to have some Mom time. We went to the movies, and the beach and just hung out. Every night my mom would want to play uno attack with Brett and I. For those who don't know us, Games are a big deal around our house. But I think we sent my Mom home with a new addiction. She just couldn't get over how fun it was to have cards spit out at ya. But anyways we were very happy to have my parents come visit us.
Well Brett and I finally got the chance to take Kaiya to the beach. It was so much fun. She was doing so good until we went out on the pier and the wind was just to strong. The wind is usually a bit more windy of there, but we also had a storm coming in.

Well for those of you who don't know. Starting Last Wednesday they have been working on the pipes in my apartment. So Wednesday it started with the water being off. Then Thursday, Friday, and Monday from 7:45am to 6:30pm they have wrapped up the whole apartment cut open walls and switched out Piping. Then re dry walled the apartment. Normally I would be as annoyed by this, but it's a little bit harder when you have a newborn. I have been lucky to have places to go for the most part. But I would have loved to just stayed home. See Kaiya still has her nights and days all mixed up. So she will finally go to bed at 7 am for her long stretch 3 1/2 hours. So Today I was so excited to finally get to sleep in. When what do I get at 8:00am, Yup a stupied knock at the door followed by a kid just walking in. He said that they still had to do a little bit this morning. But it shouldn't take more then a few minutes. Well It's been more then a few minutes. My dog is up and keeps trying to escape at every open door. My beautiful angel is sound a sleep, and I am not!!. It will be so so so nice when nap time comes. Okay I am done complaining.
