This just in: all the people that warned me that time would fly by were correct. I am officially ready for her to pause and stop getting older. She knows how to smile, now we can live forever at this blissful age.
|She's not nearly as impressed by her adorableness as I am!|
Aliases: Millie, Mills, Millsie, Nugs, Snugs. I feel like we've really cut down on the number of nicknames this month and are zeroing in on the ones that really count. Or something.
She has a few Newborn sized things that still fit, but wears mostly 0-3 and 3-6 months. She graduated to a size 2 in disposable diapers. I pretty much cried a river when I came to that sad realization. She may as well have just moved away to college.
|This is how I felt when I had to put a Size 2 on her.|
-drinks 28-30 oz. a day; 4.5-5.5 oz. bottles every 3-4 hours during the day
-sleeps a 6-7 hour stretch at night (with occasional shorter (5 hr) or longer (8+!!!! hr) sessions)
-bathes every other night
|Plotting her world domination?|
(Sorry for the exclamation points...but she gets really excited about these things, so it seemed appropriate. And yet annoying.)
|I love most things about life! YES!|
Undecided About: NPR- she likes when they play classical music, does NOT like when they just talk. Her activity mat- sometimes fun, sometimes torture? Her blue/green paci- sometimes it is exactly what she needs and totally hits the spot. Sometimes it highly offends her.
Special Skills: Being a Happy Baby, making dolphin sounds, immediately spitting up on any outfits Mommy was super excited about, making Mom and Dad work really hard for a big smile.
|They are putty in my hands if they think I will show them this smile...|
It was an incredible month. She is such a delightful baby- I spend every hour of the day with her and it isn't enough. Her life is an indescribable gift to us and her happy disposition and easygoing personality are just lovely icing on the cake. I feel infinitely grateful to call myself her mommy.
