My sweet little girl is 2 Months Old today! I cannot get over how fast this all goes! It makes me sad that she is growing up but at the same time I am so excited for the things to come! She makes me laugh every single day. She seems to have a personality already and I am loving be her mom!
She smiles all the time. Every time I try to take my camera out her smile turns into this weird cross-eyed expression that makes me laugh even harder. She seems to be pretty content with life but there are those moments every day where she is definitely not a happy girl. I think that she really is a good baby. I don't have much to base that off of since I'm not around infants that much, but at least I think she is. :) I love being her mom!
Jona just recently went back to work. It has been so lonely around here without him. I realize that I am so incredibly spoiled that I got to have him for almost seven weeks! LAPD really comes through for dads apparently. He is so great with Pen and it would melt your heart to see how much he loves her. He makes me laugh a lot. Every time I try to talk to Penny he overhears and answers for her. Something like this...
Me (to Penny): "Hi sweetie! Are you still sleepy?"
Jona: "Yeah, I really am."
Me (to Penny): "You're probably so hungry huh?"
Jona: "I'm starving, is there anything to eat?"
Me (to Penny): "Wow, we've got to change your diaper!"
Jona: "Ok, but let me eat first."
I honestly think that Penny is going to be a funny kid. She is so much like her dad and I hope that she picks up his sense of humor too.
The thing I like the least about this whole process is scheduling. I hate it. I can't wait to reap the rewards of being on a schedule but it is so hard. There is a lot of crying that comes with it. Penny cries, I cry and I'm pretty sure our neighbors are crying too. I know I'm being dramatic, and truth is, it is getting so much better. As a matter of fact, right now, Penny is taking a nap in her crib, which was completely unheard of a few days ago. I've gotten tons of advice on scheduling, feeding, crying it out, etc. so I think we're in a good place.
Sorry, for the boring post. I don't mean to be one of those moms that tells you when their kid sneezes, but right now my life is completely wrapped around this little monkey, which is exactly how I want it to be!
Here are a few pictures of our little girl...
I love this concerned look that she is always giving me. Like, "mom, are you sure about that?
Here's another one...
This is that cross-eyed expression that I was talking about
Finally, some smiles :)
