Our little lady is growing up way too quickly for me.
She’s happy, gaining weight and brings us lots of joy. Especially when she smiles.
Her favorite thing ever is to be held. Her second favorite thing is smiling at her daddy. If she’s in the right mood, I can convince her it’s fun to lay on her ladybug and play with the toys. Sometimes she’s happy swinging too.
But sleeping in her own bed? Or at normal bedtime hours? Probably her least favorite thing. For the past few weeks her preferred bed time has been between 2 and 3 am. But last night we somehow convinced her that 1 am was ok, and then she slept for 7 hours! She’s a fan of headbands but does not like wearing hats—she does everything she can to get them off.
She loves to nap, especially if she’s being held, and would nap all day if we let her (hence, the nighttime problems). She also loves to eat. Every 2-3 hours. She’d also love to be a thumb sucker, but has yet to figure out how to get just it in her mouth, so she settles for smacking on her fist while grabbing her blanket with the other hand.
She got her first cold the day after Thanksgiving and wasn’t a fan of having a stuffy nose. She’s still a little on the stuffy side, so I’m just hoping she isn’t allergic to our Christmas tree or the pets.
We all love having her be a part of our family—especially Jace! He still loves to get right in her face, talk to her, check to see if her eyes are open, and needs to know where she is at all times. And she loves to watch him. It’s going to be so much fun celebrating Christmas with this little lady!
