Dude, I feel like only yesterday I finally gave birth after being pregnant for an eternity. It’s amazing, this relativity thing. Adeline has been growing by leaps and bounds, upping her nightly feedings to prove it. *sigh*
It’s so much fun to watch her personality develop, to see how fascinated she is with the world around her, to discover how much of her hand she can actually fit in her mouth. She’s at that stage where she’s drooling like a mini Saint Bernard at the mere sight of something that has the potential for being grabbed by her baby fist (if she has the dexterity to grab it in the first place… we’re working on that).
Of course, people always wonder who she looks like, and it’s fun to notice the resemblances for ourselves (for the record, I think the top half of her face is me and the bottom half is Phil)… but she’s definitely her own person!
Despite some of the not-so-fun things that come along with having a baby – sleepless nights, countless wardrobe changes on the account of spit-up and other bodily fluids, inconsolable cries when you’re trying to go to the bathroom or get dinner started or just get something done – I love having a baby in the house again. Time, please slow down just a little!
