I'm still alive! Jeff and I both have been down for the count with nasty colds so life has gotten a little more complicated. I even missed two days of work.... but tomorrow we're off so I have a few days to rest and focus on getting healthy.
Praise God that Caiden is still healthy!! I've been wearing a mask when I feed her to eliminate excessive germs and she thinks that is just comical. In other new developments, she found her thumb this week. I am relieved that she's found a way to soothe herself because she hates her pacifier with a purple passion. =) She's still sleeping through the night- 9:30-6:30 which is a blessing I'm thankful for every day! She is really getting to be a lot of fun. She is intrigued by everything around her and if she's stuck looking at the same thing for too long, she'll kindly remind you that you're slacking on your job. =) She loves watching me sign to her, and she seems to be fascinated by reading books. She still enjoys our walks in the neighborhood and sitting outside. I often bring her out into the garage while Jeff is working out there or washing the car, and she is quite content to be in the midst of any activity. Every night I bring her into the kitchen and talk to her while I make dinner. The way I figure it, she'll be taking over for me in a few months. She is making strides at rolling over, making it to her side and teetering, but never really completing the rotation. I think the actually rolling part intimidates her.
I am loving being her Mom and miss every moment I have to be away from her. She's at such a fun age! Hopefully things will get a little easier in the next week or two as I get better, and I intend to be better at updates. Gotta run!
