Brecken just refuses to smile for the camera! She smiles all the time, just not when I have the camera out. Neway, Brecken is 3 months old and to me, looks the same as 2 months. She weighs 12 lbs. 14 oz. and as you can see, has outgrown her newborn clothes, but mommy hasn't gotten out the 3 months clothes yet, so she looks like a porker!
Everyone now says she looks more like me, but where I am around her everyday, I can't really tell any difference. Her hair has gotten lighter and longer and thankfully has not thinned yet. She has discovered her hands and is trying fiercely to grab the musical ladybug that hangs from her stroller, but has not yet succeeded. One day, my child. She kicks her legs and flails her arms like a madwoman, and unfortunately, she has her mom's temper. We couldn't get her to go to sleep the other night and as we were standing over her crib not knowing what to do, Matt says "She has so much fight in her" and then looks at me accusingly.
Every day is an adventure with her. There is no routine. We establish one for a few days, and then she decides to throw it out of whack, which throws mommy out of whack-I need my routine! I've been told I still have a lot to learn regarding this.

Just wanted to give everyone an update. My baby is doing sooooo much better. They took her oxygen off and her IV is out. She is starting to look like my baby girl again. We are moving from ICU to the PEDS floor today and hopefully we will be home in a few more days. Thanks everyone for the prayers!!

this is how we have spent the past few days. my poor helpless baby trapped in the bed, tubes coming out of everywhere, her gasping for air EVERY time she coughs. I am so helpless and there is nothing i can do to stop the "bad people" from poking and prodding her :( After 2 weeks of testing and bloodwork, we finally think we have found the culprit-pertussis or more commonly known as the whooping cough. We are still waiting on the test results, but the pulmonologist confirmed the doctor's suspicions.
So this is where the next few days will be spent. "Don't expect to get out of here before Friday", says Dr. White. 3 down, 3 to go.

So I go to the doctor 2 days ago and I am dilated to 2. She says that I should have her in a couple of weeks. So, I get excited, thinking any day now. Then I talk to my friend Sommer who has been dilated to 2 since Feb 12 and I think, oh my god, I can't handle it anymore!! I am so ready for my child to get here!!!!
