Same Old Thing/ 11 Months

Today was my second day of working on the floor. It was not a great day. Yesterday was very busy and there were not enough nurses for the patient load so we were stretched to the max. Because of that, the nurse I was with didn't have any time to teach me anything. I was as lost as if I was a visitor and didn't know where the bathroom was. I was hoping that today would be better but it wasn't. Just the same ole' thing, different day. We started off with a great assignment and got off to a good start. We had three moms and three babies to take care of. Then...a laboring patient came in and we had to take over another nurse's entire assignment so she could take care of the mom in labor. I don't want to say exactly how many patients we had but it was way more than I have ever had on my own at my last hospital. Not a great way to start off on the floor. I am really hoping that the weekend will be better. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

In other news, Aislynn is now 11 months old. Just one more month till a whole year has gone by. She has four teeth(two top, two bottom) and babbles a lot. She can definitely say dada. Sometimes I think I hear a mama too. She is crawling all over the place and loves to follow her big sisters around the house. She is started to get into everything. I caught her today dumping the kitties water bowl on the floor. She is a little handful for sure. Since she is already in bed I will have to weigh her tomorrow. She is wearing 12 month clothes and is very average size right now. I think this little girl is going to be very smart when she grows up. I can see her mind working all the time. She is very picky when it comes to eating. She always wants what we are having and sometimes she just plain refuses to eat what I have to give her. I think I give in and give her her way too much. Oh well, I am a sucker for cute little babies.
In a few weeks we will be taking a trip home to Texas to see family and friends before McKenna starts kindergarten. We are all very excited.
