But at the same time -- there are days when I just want to stop time and hold you in my arms forever and not let you grow at ALL. I am trying to celebrate your growth - like moving to your crib, laughing, "talking" more, becoming SO interactive with me, and getting your own ADORABLE personality - but the emotional side of me just wants to cry because time is passing so quickly.
The past two weeks have been the hardest for me so far, because I've been back at work. I have missed you SO much and cannot stand being away from you for 8 whole hours! I feel like I miss out on SO much when I have to leave you all.day.long. But, I know you have loved spending time with your Daddy, Nana, and Granny while they've kept you, fed you, and entertained you. Momma is just jealous that other people are spending time with you while she is hating her job at Walmart.
--You are between 13and 14 pounds!
--You are wearing size 1-2 diapers, but when we run out of the 1-2 box we will be moving you to size 2 diapers! SO BIG!
--You are wearing size 3-6 month sleepers because your feet are too big for the 0-3 month ones! You are still wearing 0-3 month onesies though. =)
--You are SO happy after you nurse - you just talk and laugh with us and it is the most beautiful sound!
--You sleep through the night almost every night - usually from 11ish till 7ish. Some nights you may wake up around 4 or 5 and nurse, but you go back to sleep pretty quickly and sleep for a few more hours.
--After you nurse in the mornings, you fall back asleep in our bed and we snuggle for an hour or two more. I love that time! (Except for days when I have to start getting ready for work. Boooo.)
--You are nursing REALLY well, and I love the bond we share because of it. I am hoping to keep nursing you for several more months - even though it's a pain to pump at work - it's worth it because I know it is best for both you and me!
--You are still taking one good nap in the afternoons - usually 2-4 hours, and one shorter one in the morning.
--You are such a happy, wonderful baby! I love you more than you will ever know and LOVE being your mom!
