Where to begin? As always I let too much time pass. Allie is now almost 7weeks and is growing too fast. She hasn't had an official "episode" since we've been home from the hospital. (Her alarm did go off twice last weekend but the doctor feels it was a misread due to her moving around a lot more) She now weighs 9.6 lbs and is 22.5 inches long. She has already grown out off all her newborn clothes and we have already had to adjust her car seat straps! Allie is overall a really good baby. She will sleep for about 5-6 hour spans at night and during the day will sleep right through all of Eli's craziness which says a lot right there. Eli still loves having Allie around. He actually is starting to get protective of her which is cute. Eli is well Eli. He can be the sweetest kid at times and then other times he can throw the biggest fits for what appears to be for no reason. He as always is extremely active and lately has to throw everything he picks up. I joke that with as much as he throws things he better be a quarterback or pitcher someday. I am not going to lie having two kids is HARD many days I don't get dressed the house seems to always be a mess and we don't really go anywhere but every now and then I will have those "this is all worth it" type of moments. I have taken a ton of pics these past two months and it was hard to go through them all so here are a few I was gonna put even more but got tired of uploading and trying to distract Eli while I am on the computer.
Troy put the blanket on his head and surprisingly he didn't want to take it off
Eli LOVES the pool. It took awhile for him to warm up to it but now he thinks he is a pro
Oh by the way Troy no longer works at UPS. Which also means he no longer has to wake up at 3 in the morning. YEAH!! UPS has been great to work with but a position came available in the Financial Offices at Dalton State so Troy applied and got it. It will be great for his resume and a pay increase is always nice. It also means he doesn't have to work anymore Saturdays which makes me super excited!!!
Believe it or not Troy and I actually met at a stake dance back during our Senior year of high school. We started dating in May of 2005 and got married on May 12, 2006. On August 7, 2008 we were blessed with our little boy Eli Jordan McGuire. And welcomed little miss Allie Elizabeth on June 10, 2010.
