Two Months Old and 5QF

Sophia turned two months old yesterday! It's hard to believe that two months have flown by so quickly. Our lives have been a whirlwind as we continue to adjust to life as a "two under two" family, but we love it!

Sophia has started her new medication and so No change. Honestly, she seems worse, but evidently that's common. We're still hoping for a miracle so our little one can be comfortable and happy.

Here is Sophia on her two month birthday with her appropriately named Sophia doll; a gift from Aunt Nicole. I missed the first month (I plead leftover pregnancy brain) but from here on out, she will take a picture with her doll each month to show her growth.

In other news, we are busily preparing for Emma's big birthday bash. She is so excited about tomorrow that it's all she can talk about.

My baby is turning two. That's all I have to say about that.

On to 5QF! If you want to play, head on over to Mama M's!

1. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I would love to be a much more patient person. I'm pretty sure my hubby wishes the same thing.

2. Write about a time when you got lost.
Before we were married, Andy and I took a trip to NYC to attend the US Open. Apparently, Andy was given the wrong address to our hotel and we spent about two hours attempting to navigate the New Jersey Turnpike in the middle of the night.

Please read the answer to question one for an explanation on how I handled this.

My favorite part of that experience? When we found what we thought was our hotel, we were told that ours was actually a few miles away. Andy begged for a room. "Please...I don't want to have to go out there and tell her that this isn't it." Sadly, they were all booked up and Andy returned to the car in fear.

Obviously, he survived. And so did I.

3. Camping or 5 star hotel?
It really depends. I love them both. Scratch that...I've never been to a 5 star hotel. I'd like to do that sometime (Andy? Are you reading this?), but it's not something I'd always like to do. I love camping. The smell of the firewood, the sounds of nature. We're looking forward to going again when the kids are older.

4. Have you donated blood?
Hahahahahahaha! Oh, this isn't a joke.

Let's just say that I almost declined a necessary medical procedure because I had to give a blood sample. I sat in the parking lot for TWO HOURS telling Andy, "Is it really necessary to remove potentially cancerous cells? I'm pretty sure I'm fine."

I'm not rational in the presence (mental or physical) of sharp, pointy objects headed toward my veins. It's taken me 30 minutes to finish this answer for all the squirming and cringing.

I know it's important to do so, and be a good citizen and all that, but no. NO. No needles.

And that whole business about getting over that fear when you have a baby? No such luck. And I have two of 'em!

5. D
o you have a budget or do you 'fly by' most months?
Technically, we have a budget. We have to with two kids, a mortgage, and bills. But I have been known to stray from that budget from time to time. Sometimes kids just have to have another cute pair of shoes to match their new outfit, right? That's the fun of having girls!

Have a fantastic Friday everyone!
