A day in the life...

I thought I would share what my typical day looks like...

I have an early morning snuggle with Daddy's blankie (really, this is Jamie's blankie from when he was little. rumor has it that it used to be pink, it's not pink any more)

I spend some time on my playmat

I really likes my parrot these days

I kick in my bouncy chair

I swing on the front porch

I do some tummy time, it's very important to strengthen my back muscles

We (mommy) do laundry

I flirt with Wills. He is so handsome. He was baptised this weekend... nice work Wills

I get a diaper change

I chill out with my mobile

I'm showing off, what a big girl I am, sitting up like this

I take a nap and wake up smiling

Daddy comes home and then things get crazy

He likes to pose me in funny ways

Mommy feeds me... yum!

I hang out in my swing while Mom and Dad eat dinner

We take a walk and Daddy pushes me

Daddy gives me a bath

And it's off to bed! See you tomorrow :)

My Occupational Therapist came last week and is very impressed with how well I am doing. I'm at the top of the charts (developmentally) for my adjusted age (2.5 months) and even on the charts for my actual age (5 months)... it's because Mommy is constantly making me learn new things. I was 9lbs 13oz at the doctor last week so I would guess that I'm 10lbs by now!!

Mommy has been doing some work in my room...

She put in a pretty red shade

and a fun photo board over my changing table (she made it!!), I really like to look up at it and I can't wait until there are more faces for me to stare at :)

Gosh Ivory and Jamie, she is getting so big and she is so beautiful. I'm so happy that she is thriving. I can't wait to see her soon!

What beautiful smiles! I wish I woke up smiling from naps. I wish I got naps. I am so glad to hear that everything is going so well. Can't wait until Emma and Ruthie can run around together.

Ivory!! I love all the new photos of E! Thank you so much for sharing them. She looks outstanding! She is just doing great and nothing could make me happier!

Emma has such busy days! What a cutie. So glad she is gaining weight and getting where the therapists want her to be.
