I know it sounds soooo cliche, but I really can't believe how fast the last month has gone! I think until you watch your baby grow up right in front of your eyes, you really don't grasp how fast life goes by! Time...please stand still! It has been a month full of ups and downs...but the most wonderful month of my life! I really never knew I could love something so much or think that such simple things were so cute! I never knew how much I loved and appreciated Flint. He has been wonderful to me and to his little girl and it melts my heart to see him with her!
A little about our life with Cilla:
*I have had up to 5 hours straight of sleep a couple of times this month. WHo knew that would feel so wonderful?!?!
*Eats every three hours during the day and between 4 to 5 hours at night. Wakes up once in the middle if the night to nurse. I usually do not put her down until about 10:30ish.
*LOVES to be held...I don't blame her!
*Rarely cries....unless she is hungry or of course wants to be held.
*LOVES her bath. She lets us pour water all over her body and on her face. If she could smile...she would! It is so cute!
*Is amazing when we go out! She loves to go...just like her mommy! She has been out about every day of her life since she was 5 days old. She has been out to eat several times, to the grocery store, to Target, shopping, to the doctor's office, to her dad's office, to several Baylor tennis matches, to a Sunday School picnic.....
Her first restaurant experience was at Jason's Deli. She slept the entire time!
*Has been left with a sitter. Her Nana stayed with her once and my friend and BSF Leader, Stephanie, kept her one night so Flint and I could have a night out.
*Loves to ride in the car.
*Thinks our puppies Sophie and Katie are interesting. A little unsure of them giving her "kisses".
*Not much of a swaddler. She has to have her arms out and is constantly flinging them around! Flint calls her the band director!
*Still has blue eyes.
*Loves for me to read her bible stories from her bible story book.
*Is a very noisy sleeper.
*Loves to curl up beside her dad and sleep...SO CUTE!
*Unfortunately, likes the TV a lot! She comes by it honest.
*Has the biggest belly I have ever seen and she loves to stick it out! But, it is so precious and so her!
*Was labeled feisty at 5 days old by her doctor and is still living up to it! She wants so badly to hold her own bottle and to hold her head up!
*Has acquired the nicknames Frogger, Chunky Monkey, LC (for Little Cilla), Cills (thanks Jordan!), and definitely gets called Cilla Grace lots.
