14 weeks.... and other cuteness

I can not believe it has already been 14 whole weeks since I became a mom, and my life changed so much. I really feel like we have fallen into a rhythm and typical daily pattern for us from waking and leaving the house by 7am getting her to her sitter's house, to our night-time bedtime routine of a bath, a book and snuggle time. It's partly because we have been blessed with such an incredibly good baby that is so easy to care for.
We went back to the doctor last Friday evening and she put us back on the liquid Zant.ac and she showed us a study that had just been published in which those expensive Pepsid Solutabs we were tying to get the insurance to approve, were no more affective against reflux in infants than placebo. So we decided to up the dose again (within safe limits) and keep her on rice cereal in the bottle and wait until she is 4 months and start with the solids finally which will help also!!!
So in 2 short weeks we will be starting solids and he will love that!!!. I can't wait to expose her to new flavors and take pictures of all the funny faces!

She is becoming harder and harder to pose for her weekly pictures! Ha! She wants to fall right over. Its almost as if she sat up better when she was younger....it's really odd! But she can turn on the charm when you talk to her, and smiles smiles smiles when you talk to her. But as soon as I hold up the camera- nothing! She looks right past the camera and will NOT look at me. So it becomes a TWO man job to get these precious smiles she so easily gives if you have no camera. Little Turkey!
But that smile above is what I live for- its the very thing that makes my bad days okay and makes the good days even better! I had my yearly review at work, and my boss said she can see a total change in me since I have become a mother. Like a total 180. I wanted to say really? After the absolute hell I was living in for so many years in infertility treatments, hormones all over the place, and then have your miracle just placed in your arms....... would'nt you be just a bit happier too???? But it's not as if I was ugly or rude to people before Chloe either- so you almost don't know who to take it when people make comments like that.

And as the Valentine's Holiday approaches, Chloe is breaking out her appropriate attire. I love this onesie. The heart is actually hot pink ribbon roses all attached to the fabric in the shape of a heart and she looks so pretty in black. I have never put her in this color before, as everything is all pinks and purples, but she just melted my heart the other day in this outfit!!! And I love washing her clothes too, and cleaning out the lint filter, it's just a wad of pink fuzz LOL :) I know just call me weird....:)

But that's about it for this week, my birthday is Sunday and I will be the big 3-6, so not excited about getting that old but I am excited to celebrate with my two favorite people in my life Sweetness and Chloe Bug. I will let you know how it turns out!! Until we meet again may the Lord bless you and yours!!!
