Dear Baby Girl –
You got your four month shots and cried for all of a minute and a half and then your daddy picked you up and you were fine, I cried more than you did, lol, but then he had to go to work and you cried again, the only way I could get you to calm down was grab the shirt that you had been wearing early and put it across my shoulder and lay you against me and you calmed down so for the 8 hours that he was gone, stuck at work that shirt never left your side it was the sweetest thing in the world and I couldn’t help but smile and feel content.
I am so happy you are a daddy’s girl, I thought I would feel envy but being a daddy’s girl myself at one point I feel happiness surge through me. I love the fact that you are so connected to your daddy even from the get go, its so hard for me to describe.
When he comes home from work, the look on your face makes my day because you are so happy to see him, you spend all your time with me but daddy, daddy means so much to you because you don’t get to see him so much.
Also now you are talking so much more and it amazes me that you are so vocal and I love it too. Especially after you have a bath…speaking of the bath.
It is one of my biggest fraustrations right now, omg, lol, I really hate bath time now, I loved it when you fit in the sink but now that we have to do it in the tub and you are in the inbetween stage, you aren’t sitting up completely but you also aren’t little enough for the sink. It kills me and exasperates me. Your daddy and I loved giving you baths together because we could both be at the sink standing but now at the bath one of us can fit there and kneeling so now we’re using a pillow to save our knees and then the other gets you dressed and lotioned well, at least that’s what we’re going to do next time, this is the 2nd time as of last night and so far its been rough so hopefully we’ll finally get it down as soon as we think we have it down, something has to change it, like you growing. I am not complaining….much…..
About growing, you are now 16 pounds 6 ounces, 28 inches long and oh my gosh so strong I love it. You laugh and smile aloud a lot. You also are very perculiar about where you want to be, you love your routine and you also perfer to be at home rather than anywhere else, the only other place is with your Aunt, Grandma and cousin.
Your hair is starting to look like it might start to curl and also you have a big personality, sometimes you act like your daddy and other times you act like me. You have a lot of our mannerisms and its so weird when people point them out to me and I’m like, wow.
You are so beautiful and so sweet, you can charm the pants off of anyone and you have a way of making my bad days good. You are make me so happy and I am so glad you are here.
Soon in a week I will start part time work and I dread being away from you, but we’ve got to make Duchess money so I can finally buy you things.
Your grandpa is coming on Sunday and I love the fact that you two are so cute together.
But one more thing baby girl, we adore you.
I love you with all my heart.
