My beautiful baby

First of all I just want to THANK all of you for all your advice, suggestions, etc. It has been really helpful as I often feel like I have no idea what I'm doing. I know I haven't even had her for three weeks, but in some ways it's like she's always been here. Anyway, there are a few things that I want to mention about our baby girl. She has gotten SO much better with her sleep, although, there are still rough nights and I'm sure plenty more to come. We have a routine at night that I believe helps her to calm down enough to sleep and sleep well. She has brought more stress and more joy into our lives than I could have possibly imagined. It's definitely been hard, but every moment is worth it to have this little girl who loves to cuddle, who smiles in her sleep, who holds your finger tightly when she's eating, and who tries really, really hard to hold up her head. I think she is really pretty strong already though. She can hold up her head for quite a while and just stare, but she's definitely not ready to do it all independently.

Although I love these times and I don't wish for time to go fast, I often wonder what her laugh will sound like, how she'll look when she smiles and is controlling that smile, will her hair be curly? It's been so much fun and I look forward to the rest of the time that we have with our baby. I love her with all my heart, and I'm grateful that she joined Micah and me and made our lives even better. Just remember Lila, your mom and dad love you!

  1. She is seriously so adorable. And no worries...those controlled smiles and laughs will be here before you know it, and she'll be wanting to help you type comments on other people's blogs little Rori is trying to do at the moment. The space bar is her favorite...probably cause it's easiest for her to reach. :) Cherish those little moments!!
