The wee one is 7 weeks old and judging by her double-chin, she’s growing beautifully!
Q. How is Lila?
A. Um…super cute.
Q. Is she growing?
A. Yes – she’s gaining weight lightening fast and is wearing her cute outfits about three times – tops. (I now understand what, “growing like a weed” means.) Advice to pregnant Moms – only take the tags off and wash the clothes/outfits that you love. That way you can return the other clothes and buy larger sizes when necessary.
Speaking of cute outfits – here’s Lila wearing her, “Lila is Love” onesie that she got from Cousin Mick before she was born.
Q. Any challenges this week?
A. Have you ever tried to put socks on a noodle? This is the only comparison I can use for trying to put a sock on Lila’s mini-foot. I swear, it takes upwards of 3 minutes per foot. 🙂 Her foot is just loose and uber-limber.
And I’ll say it – this whole parenthood thing ain’t easy. Like say, when your husband’s daughter just decides to scream… and scream…
(That onesie should say, “Lila is Loud.”)
Q.How often is Lila eating and sleeping?
A. The little lady still is eating approximately every 3 hours during the day and anywhere from every 3-6 hours at night. Seriously – how do you like that gap? Some nights are awesome, some nights are less than awesome.
She’s usually up for about a half an hour after she eats, then she naps again. Love that.
Q. What’s your favorite thing about being a Mommy, right now?
- Lila’s random smiles. Especially when you get her out of her crib in the middle of the night and she’s nearly laughing.
- Cozy, quiet time snuggling in the chair in her room.
- When she stares at me and just “listens” to what I have to say.
- Lila’s cheeks.
- The baby smell after a bath.
Ok, here’s my little old man, oops I mean, daughter – sitting in her bumbo seat. I love it. And I love her lack of hair on the top of her head. (She has so much in the back. I shall take a pic for next week. Sit tight.)
