sniff….my baby girl has graduated. It’s been a big week for her!
There weren’t songs of ceremony or caps and gowns, but it was momentous none the less.
She’s no longer a newborn, my sweet little turtle.
She’s moved from newborn diapers to size 1 diapers. Maybe that explains why her poop was exploding out the back….the bigger diapers are MUCH better at containment at this phase. LOL
There’s no more stuffing her into her newborn clothes. It simply isn’t comfortable for her collar to be pulled down, midway to her chest because her onesie is a tad too small. I have accepted that she wears 0-3 months. My big growing girl. sniff.
DROOL – and lots of it. Wow, she’s a little drool machine lately. LOL That’s definitely new!
She drank a 6 oz bottle! It only happened once, but wow! She’s got a little growing appetite! She’s got the poo to match her appetite too. Sheesh
Gone are the days of napping all day. YAY! She likes to spend her day, holding her head up and observing the world around her. Instead of laying in my arms, she likes to be propped up in a sitting position or in her boppy, staring at the world around her. She likes to track objects that I move around in front of her. I can spend ages sitting with her, trying to get her to laugh. sigh…the good life!
She knows her mom! This may be a little sadistic of me….but I don’t care. It did my heart good to know that she truly knows the difference when she’s with someone else. Shortly after Easter, we both came down with a cold. (Not a fun place to be, seriously!) I was lucky enough to have been at my parents’ house for the week so they helped take care of Malia while I tried to keep my cold from her. No luck in that department though. She did catch my cold and had so much trouble breathing. Keep that bulb suction from the hospital near you at all times!
The first night there, my dad was so concerned about her getting sick that he insisted that she sleep with them. Fine. I gave in, despite knowing deep down that she wouldn’t be able to sleep without her mom. And I was right! Yeah! She didn’t sleep at all that first night, unfamiliar with her surroundings and away from her momma’s warmth. She knew!! And despite losing a full night of sleep and hearing her poor little cries, my heart swelled knowing that it matters who puts her to bed at night. She wants her mom. [[tear]] I needed that feeling too. I think my biggest fear about going to work is that she’ll forget her mom. I just want to keep her in my little pocket. I will always want to be her #1 person. 🙂
