As I was packing up Blake’s newborn clothes yesterday and sorting through things she doesn’t need anymore to clear up some space I was instantly in tears. Blake is growing way too fast. I feel like it was yesterday that we were praying and trying everything to even get pregnant. Now she’s here, she’s all mine and I can hold her anytime I want! I can’t believe she is 10 weeks though, yesterday. Time is flying.
She smiles ALL the time now, coos and giggles–it’s seriously my favorite. It makes the hard days worth it and the best days even better. She absolutely loves to stand and look around. Put her down and she will let you know that’s not what she wants. She has to know what’s going on and see the world! I love this so much and I love watching her figure life out. How amazing is it to see someone grow and learn every little bit about life and new things everyday?!
Blake is officially in 0-3 month clothing full force, size 1 diapers and growing like crazy! I think we’re officially off the nipple shield *knock on wood* and she’s eating like a champ. Thanks to Lactation Link big time for that one! She’s amazing. I couldn’t believe how quickly she weaned off of it after using it for so long. All the tears, I can’t say it enough, she’s growing up so fast! All these new little milestones. She holds her head up very well, rolls up on her side and well..guilty she loves Disney Junior and all the colors. Oops. But it gives this Mama 30 minutes to bust some work out every once in awhile! Judge me. She just loves the colors; in books, TV, outside, everywhere!
We recently started reading books a couple of days ago together. At first she hated it–remember she likes to stand up and this involves sitting down.. Ha!– but now she’s getting the hang of it and hopefully we can make it our little special girl time! I try to do this before our morning nap everyday and hope to make it part of our routine! Speaking of naps, that’s been a mess since our little weekend getaway last weekend! She does great with her morning one, but after that it’s messy, very messy and sporadic. But hey, life is great and she’s been a happy babe and well I am loving every second of it so no complaints!
For now, I’m off to cuddle and hold my little family close.
