One Month home!

One month home!

February 17, 2007

We can't believe how quick the time has gone. Lily is adjusting wonderfully and Mommy and Daddy are getting into the swing of things. We had a small set back our second week home as I came down with Strep Throat (first time ever) and Chris and Lily both had cold. I can say that we are no longer quarantined and we all feeling much better.

On a happier note Lily had her first doctor visit and all is fine. She is a petite 19.8 lbs and 28.5 inches long. We are proud to report that Lily is sleeping through the night. She goes down around 730 and is sleeping until 630-700 am! We were able to get rid of that middle of the night bottle and in fact she doesn't get the bottle anymore after we rock her. It took about a week but now we rock her with a bottle before nap and bedtime and then we are able to put her in the crib and if she is still awake she will soothe herself to sleep. Normally she will sing, It is really cute! My new alarm clock is the awesome sound of her talking to herself in the morning. I just lay there and smile! She is waving hi and bye bye to everybody including people on TV! She claps her hands when we sing patty cake and if you are happy and you know it... and tonight for the first time she blew kisses. She doesn't seem too interested in walking yet. She will stand by herself for about 15 secs and then laughs and falls into us. She has the best laugh and does so very often. I think her favorite game right now is peak-a-boo!!! She squeals and laughs every time. She LOVES Blues Clues!! This was a surprise to us. From the first time it caught her eye she has loved it! When it comes on during the week she will clap her hands and dance to all of the songs. Mom Mom and Pop Pop sent her a Blue doll for Valentine's Day. She had this great look on her face when she opened the box. It was as if she couldn't believe that Blue was in her house. It was a half surprise and great big smile. It was priceless!!

Today we celebrated our one month home by going to the mall. It is too cold for anything else and after being stuck in the house for two weeks it was like Disney World!! We went to Columbia Mall. She and Chris rode on the Carousel there, we looked in the pet store and even had lunch out. We had such a good time. Well I am going to get to bed we are past our bedtime and we are feeling it!! I am posting more pictures of her. We have taken close to 500 so I think I can put a few up!

Love to everyone!!!

I love it! I can't wait for our visit next month! What a beauty and I am so glad everyone is feeling better!

She is so beautiful and happy, as I know you and Chris are too! She still looks like you both, as if she was yours from the start! God bless you all and our prayers for many more wonderful days ahead.
Love to all - Debbie
