A few quiet moments...

It's just been one thing after another here.  Lia is a great little baby but she's still a newborn and on that three-hour cycle of eat, poop, sleep and repeat.  Right now is perhaps the first few minutes of quiet time I've had since my last blog post.  I put her in her crib (she's barely spent any time in there so far - she's been sleeping in our room at night) and I'm on the other side of the house and kind of a nervous wreck.  I have two baby monitors by my side and I keep checking on her.  She's fine, of course - just sleeping adorably - so I'm trying to turn this into a lesson for me in chilling the f out.

We have a pediatrician's appointment this afternoon, just the routine two-week check-up.  I'm totally excited to see how much weight she's gained.  I mean, I grew her inside my stomach from an itty bitty blastocyst to an actual baby, but I'm somehow more amazed that I alone am keeping her alive with milk that's coming out of my boobs.  It's magical, seriously.

The weather here is freaking gorgeous.  My body has made it clear that I need to take it easy for a little bit longer, so I haven't been able to walk the dog or head to the park as much as I'd have liked, but I think I'm going to go sit outside and bask in the sun a little rather than keep playing on the internet.  Right after I go check on the baby again...

Didn't I say I was going to wrap her up in hoodie towels every day and take pictures?  Hard to tell in this photo but it's a duck.  Totally adorbs.

Check out those baby reflexes!  She's so smart.

She's so much cuter in person, I can't even tell you guys.


  1. SO adorable- I can't imagine her being even cuter in person!!

  2. OMG she's so cute!! I think she's doing karate in that second picture! Definitely get outside and enjoy this weather, it's amazing! See you on Monday!
