baby swing rehab

As of 3 days ago, Presley has entered rehab.  
Her drug of choice:
her baby swing.

It seems as though she will only sleep while she's swinging..and unfortunately for her we are just too poor to buy batteries every week.  Not really, but that's what we are telling her so she will start sleeping in her crib.  We totally skipped the packNplay and put her in her crib.  She has been doing pretty good so far at night, but she still isn't the biggest fan of just lying on her back without movement.  She will whimper and cry for a little bit and then eventually pass out.  The only time she gets to swing is in the morning for her nap!  She does do better when there is music going so we are going to need to buy a cd player or something.  I have some lullaby music on my phone but, obviously, she can't sleep with my phone all night.

I can't believe she will be 7 weeks tomorrow, it feels like it's been months! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I'm kind of going crazy in this house, which makes me 1456 % sure that I could never be a stay at home mom.  I literally stand by the window and watch for Adam to get home.  Then I throw him the baby like she's a ticking time bomb and I have some "me" time.  Last night Adam fell asleep at 8:00 so that meant I was on my own.  I didn't feel bad at all when I woke him up for the 5am feeding either.  

I go tomorrow for my check up with my OB/GYN.  I was supposed to go last week (6 weeks post delivery) but apparently my appointment was never made.  I called on Tuesday and they got me in this week.  Then I have my surgery to blast my kidney stone a week from today.  I'm not sure how invasive it will be, but I'm looking forward to the drugs! (I promise I'm not a crackhead, I just really like the deep sleep you get when you have surgery!)  Hopefully I will be done with the hospital for a while after that!

This weekend is the first football game of the season (DUH!) and we were thinking about taking Presley to the quad, but I think I'm going to get my Mom to keep her instead.  Once the weather cools off in a month or so then we will probably take her.  I'm sure if we took her this weekend we'd just be sweating out nads off holding/carrying/feeding her.  Doesn't sound fun to me!

Well, that's about it for today! Below are some pics and videos that I imported off my phone.  Of course, they're all of Presley.  Adam and I are no longer important :)
