Baby D Makes Three

changing

dear Cora,

yesterday morning, I got you out of your crib, and you had changed overnight. your facial features were just a little bit different. the expressions you make a little more pronounced. it is amazing and terrifying, the rate at which you change. I spend whole minutes every day trying to memorize everything about you, because tomorrow you will be a different little girl. you are funny and sweet and kind. you are also stubborn, hardheaded, and determined. you are becoming so much more communicative. you wave now to say “hi,” “bye,” or “night-night.” you sign when you are hungry most of the time. and you sparingly sign “all done.”  this weekend you learned to shake your head to say “no.” and used it. a lot. your daddy and I giggled every time you shook your little head at us and whispered under our breaths “uh oh, what has she learned?”  you tried to share your bottle with me a few times on Friday evening, and almost popped it right into my mouth because I was not expecting it. and on Friday night when I asked you if you were ready for bed, you waved to say “night-night” and then looked frantically around because your daddy was not in the room and you always say “night-night” to him before you go to bed. I love these sweet moments with you, and am so thankful I get to be your mommy.

Ah man

I don’t know if there is anything worse for an exhausted, nursing mom than a big spit up at 1:30 am after a 30 minute nursing session while burping baby and realizing we have to start all over again (not to mention we both need new PJs now).

Also, blogging about how great napping was going yesterday seemed to have jinxed me. Cora did not eat or sleep well yesterday at all. Hopefully it was just a one day setback.

We went to a Just Between Friends sale yesterday evening and really scored. Tons of jammies for 3-6 months (we only had four pairs), a couple bottles, a dress and jeans in 6-9 months, a couple hooded bath towels, and an extra boppy. With how many stairs we have its become cumbersome to try to lug it between floors, especially since I’m usually also carrying Cora, my phone, and a cup of water (I keep one kindle upstairs and one on the bottom level for this very reason as well – a great luxury!). I can’t remember if we got anything else (it is 2 am now :P) but I will snap pictures at some point.

Oh, and if the formatting has become weird, its because I’m using the WordPress app on my phone as I can do that one-handed. Modern mommyhood 😛

Time for this munchkin and mommy to go back to bed. Night all.
