This is Alida at her first picnic in VA!
This is Alida and her best friend Olivia!!
Daddy burping Alida...she always looks so much older when she sits up :-)
A smile actually caught on camera!!!
I cannot believe how time has flown!!! In two weeks I have to return to work :-( Something that I am not looking forward to! I absolutely love being a mom and spending time with my little angel!!! I don't necessarily hate my job but who wouldn't rather spend time with this beautiful little baby?! Every day she changes a little bit more. I remember thinking that I couldn't wait until she could smile at me.....now I can't wait till she laughs!
She went to the doc the other day...she already weighs 11 lbs and 6 oz!! She is growing so fast - she measured 22 1/2 inches long. Almost 4 lbs and 3 inches since birth!!
She is still sleeping through the night....every single night!! Anywhere between 8 and 10 hours! I am not looking forward to the nights where she wakes at 3 am and won't go back to sleep. I pray to God every night that she keeps sleeping like a champ. I am sure that she will be up all night the night before I go back to work.
So, for motherhood....I love it! I feel as though I could join my sister and have 7 more!!! Matt would never ever agree to it though :-)
Congratulations Ethan and Ali!
