Eternal Marriage

Bethanie got blessed on Sunday (1-10-2010). She looked beautiful. She did a great job during the blessing and during sacrament meeting...she didn't make a peep. Bryan did an amazing job on the blessing...the spirit was so strong and you could tell that he just loves his daughter so much. I love my little family and am so blessed to have Bryan and Bethanie in my life. :)

2 Month Stats

We took Bethanie to the doctor yesterday for her 2 month check up and she's growing like a weed. :) A beautiful weed of course!!

She is now 11 pounds, 8 ounces which is in the 73%.
She's 23 1/2 inches long which is in the 80%.
And her head is now 38 3/4 cm around which is in the 50%.

She got her 2 month shots which of course I hate...but I think the shots made her tired because she slept REALLY good last night. :)

I can't believe she is already 2 months old...we are having so much fun with her. We love that little girl so much!!

Happy Baby!

Bethanie was real smiley so I pulled out the camera and had some fun. I'm pretty sure I have the cutest baby in the world :)

Good Mom vs. Bad Mom


So, let me just say that I am getting kind of tired of EVERYONE trying to tell me how to raise my baby. So many people just think it's their responsibility to give me unwanted advice. Yes, being a mom has been hard, but I LOVE cuddling with my baby and I love it when she smiles and is happy...what mom doesn't love that? What I want to know is, when did letting your baby scream their head off and try to calm themselves make you a better mom than the mom who goes in and cuddles with their baby? I was told today that I am a bad mom because I cannot stand letting my baby cry and cry. I'm sorry but when Bethanie is screaming like she is being murdered, I am not just going to sit back and listen without wanting to comfort her. It kills me having to hear that cry. I would much rather see my baby smiling in my arms than to have her screaming, face turning red and tears streaming down her cheeks in her bed. Does this make me a bad mom???
