Monday, March 10

Finally! The Nursing Strike #2 is finally over.
Yesterday, at her first evening feeding, she didn't put up a fight. She didn't have a look of fear. She didn't wave her arms around. She didn't kick like crazy. She didn't scream. She didn't cry. She didn't have big ol' tears rolling down her face. I didn't have to rock her to sleep first. I offered her the breast and she took it. What a stinkin' relief.

Oh, and it was her three month birthday too.

It's been such an amazing three months. Even with all the hard parts.

Here are some highlights -

  • Sometimes Sofia sneezes and farts at the same time
  • She now adds a 'sigh' at the end of a sneeze or yawn
  • Recently, Sofia cries not because she's hungry, wet or tired, but because she just wants us to hang out with her
  • She smiles while she tosses and turns when I put her down to bed
  • She squeals
  • When I shred paper, the sound scares the crap out of her (not literally, FYI)
  • She loves to look at herself in the mirror, that vain little baby
  • She is the most chatty at around 10:00 to 10:30 in the morning
  • She sure loves Gwa-kong
  • When Sofia is especially fussy, she settles down quickly to Diana Krall
  • Sometimes when I sing to Sofia, she sings along (it sounds just like her cooing, but she elongates all the 'syllables')
  • She loooooves bathtime

    Being parents - being a mother - is even better than I could ever imagine.
