My beautiful 2 month old daughter

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Tomorrow, Clara will be 2 months old. Where has the time gone. It feels like just yesterday I was seeing her emerge from my belly. Pink, screaming, and puffy. She was and is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Holding her in my arms felt so right. I feel complete for the first time in my life.

She has her Daddy's eyes and my ears... so far.
She gets this big, open-mouthed smile and coos at the same time. It melts my heart.
She loves the boobs.
She stands while being held.
She studies your face and you feel like she's staring into your soul.
Bath/shower time is the best. She's quiet and completely content.
She loves music. Especially Bob Marley and Adele.
She farts like a grown man.
I love how her breathing sounds when she sleeps.
She has the biggest, most beautiful blue eyes.
She's mastered pulling her pacifier out of her mouth.
She can push herself up on her forearms, and creep on her belly.
Every morning when she wakes up, she smiles for like an hour.
Cuddling with Mom and Dad is her favorite.
She has long fingers and long feet.
Mommy's chest is her favorite place to sleep.

I'm going to miss her cuddling with me all of the time, staying where I put her, smiling for no reason, the look of wonderment on her face, the scheduled feeding and sleeping times, and the way her face lights up when I pick her up.

She's the best thing that's ever happened to me. She may have not been planned, but I wouldn't change a thing.

Update: although few and far between

Clara turned six weeks old this past Saturday. She's up to 8lbs 11oz and 21" long. I realized this week that she almost can't fit in the sleepers I've been putting her in since birth. I cried because she'll never wear them again. She also doesnt fit into her newborn diapers anymore. I have about 2 days worth left, but after that, it's on to size one. I can't believe how fast it's going. I feel like we've just finally gotten the hang of breastfeeding and have gotten her on a sleep schedule, and now it's all going to change once she learns how to roll over and sit up. She smiles, but I'm pretty sure she can't control it, or at least doesn't do it in response to anything I do.
Mother's day was fun. BD's brother took pictures of Clara, and BD got me a huge collage frame to put them in. He also gave me this super sweet card from him and Clara. The only thing that would have made the day better is seeing my Mommy. :( Speaking of which, it's her birthday today! Happy birthday, my 54-year-old-cancer-beating-mother! That's right! My mama is done with chemo and had surgery to get her port out last Friday. Now it's onto regrowing some hair and getting new boobs. :)
My big sister, Ashley, is preggo with her third bebe. I get to have another nephew! They found out last week, and I was wrong since I thought it was gonna be a girl. Oh, well.
Anyways, that's it until the next time I have access to interwebs. Enjoy!
