Conversation on the way to daycare today:
Me: Are you ok Sonja? You’re really quiet this morning.
Sonja: Yeah. I’m ok. I’m practicing being quiet for a school
This chubby baby is 6 months old today! Time is going by too fast. She has two bottom teeth. She can roll from her back to her tummy and can almost sit up by herself. She loves eating oatmeal, apples, and carrots. She likes playing with her feet. She continues to be super laid back and cheerful. We just love her to death.
Camille was three months old on Tuesday. She makes me smile and warms my heart. She has a funny little smile. She likes to “talk” with her big sister. She occasionally rolls over. She quickly gets furious if she’s hungry and we’re not quick enough with her milk. She loves being held by anyone. Mostly she’s pretty easy going. I need the growing to slow down!
We went to see Santa at Westdale Mall on Saturday night. Both girls did great! No one cried and Sonja even told Santa what she wanted in a voice he was able to hear and understand. Sometimes she gets quiet and mumbly when she’s nervous. Why doesn’t Santa pass out candy canes anymore? Now you just get a coloring book. Healthier I suppose but not nearly as fun in my opinion!
How has it been two months already?! Camille is doing great! She weighs 12 lbs, 5 oz and is 24.5 inches long. She is smiling more each day. She likes to coo and grunt and chew on her hands. She loves to watch her big sister do anything. She started daycare last week and they tell me she’s laid back and relaxed. We’re feeling lucky to have a happy, healthy baby!
We had a day of firsts yesterday. We dropped Sonja off for a birthday party with people we don’t know all that well. Don’t worry, she was perfectly safe. But every other birthday party we have attended as a family. She had a fabulous time and Kev, Camille, and I went out for a nice dinner. I’m calling it date night because baby Camille slept through the whole thing!
Sonja also had her first taste of pop at the birthday party. She had Sprite and it’s her new favorite thing. She brought her cup home with her in the car. She was sucking down the remaining soda when she stopped and announced to us, “This makes me not want to sleep!”
Thank goodness no one gave her a real Coke!
I made this to send to our niece with some Halloween treats. i thought I’d share it here because I haven’t posted in forever and we love you too.
Sonja is thrilled to be Pink Bat Girl! I mean, beyond excited. She saw this costume in a newspaper ad and HAD TO HAVE IT RIGHT NOW! Thank you Party City. This new mom was happy to spend $30 and have Halloween taken care of in five minutes.
Hope everyone has a fun and spooky time on Wednesday!
I took Sonja to dance class the other night. I had to take baby Camille with me as well since Kevin had to be at church. We rush to get to dance on time and actually make it. The baby was fussy so I took her out the car seat to finish the bottle we started at home. Turns out she had massive poop explosion. I would have been fussy too! So I go into the restroom and change a diaper on the floor in the stall. I also manage to drop my glass baby bottle on the tile and it shatters everywhere. Luckily it landed away from the baby and me. So I finish the diaper situation and then I clean up the milk and glass with a burp cloth and a blanket I had with me. Finally I told a person at the front desk they probably need to sweep the bathroom really well.
Ugh, I so wanted to cry. But I didn’t everything was fine in the end.
I told Sonja this whole story in the car on the way home and she said, “Mommy, you really should have brought one of your plastic bottles.”
