Lila’s 8 weeks old! It was an eventful week (as always.) She had several AMAZING days in a row AND proceeded to sleep 7.5 hours in one stretch (without waking up once!) on the night before my birthday. It was amazing.
Q. How was the week?
A. Um, super great. Little Miss Lila is changing daily. She no longer looks like a newborn – but has morphed into an [uber cute] peanut of a baby.
Q. What is Lila doing this week?
A. Smiling all the time – almost laughing. And, she now has tears! (Babies don’t produce tears when they’re first born.) It was a semi-conflicting moment when I saw the tears. It was like, “OH! Awesome! She’s got tears! Er… wait…maybe I should get her to stop crying…”
Q. So, on a daily basis – what does Lila love the most?
A. Waking up in the morning. She LOVES the morning. She’s most smiley then. (Ironic since I hate mornings.)
Q. What does Lila dislike the most?
A. Um, this is easy – those nose aspirator things. She hates them. Can’t really say that I blame her…
Q. What’s been your favorite thing this week?
A. Two things. First, we discovered that when we say to Lila, “You have such pretty hair!” she smiles. Every time. I love it.
Next, her swimsuit. I tried it on her and had to leave it on her for the entire afternoon since it was so cute.
My aunt bought Lila this patemm pad and I adore it.
It’s a laminated cotten, ROUND changing pad that is so versatile. Why is it great? You can stuff a couple of diapers, wipes and a change of clothes in the inner pockets and then fold it up! No need for a diaper bag. (It has a handle, too!) Or, you can use it in NASTY places that don’t have diaper changers. It’s ROUND so you don’t have to try to keep you baby lying straight on a small rectangular pad. (That’s always tough.) It’s waterproof and it’s good for baby-naked-time. We’re looking forward to using it at the beach with Lila, too. Oh, and you can re-fold it up with one hand. Love it.
These little things are available here.
Moving on to the pictures. There’s a bunch this week.
Ah, look! “Grandma’s little doll” is somewhat… un-doll-ish.
(She’s totally screaming in that shot.)
Did I take her out of the sling? No.
I took a picture.
So she stepped in front of her and sat down and waited for me to take a picture.
On Saturday night we went out for my birthday.
This is Lila’s birthday outfit. (As given to her by her Aunt Anna and Aunt Sherri.)
We took the pics – here’s a few outtakes.
