Update - 4 months old!!!

Julia is now 4 months old!!


I have no idea where the time has gone but I am trying to soak every moment of it in. I owe that to Jackson, losing him reminds me that everyday with Julia is a blessing. Every single day I have with her I should enjoy, I should cherish it b/c I never got to have those days with him.

Julia is now 11lbs 8oz and is 61cm long - which is small in weight but long in length. I stress a bit about her being small but I try to remember she was 5 weeks early!! We have had a lot of firsts - she has rolled over from her back to her tummy and since then has continued to do it everyday. We went swimming for the first time, and she really liked it. I got her a membership at the Y and signed her up for swimming lessons.

Brian and I had our first date since she was born. We went out for dinner and I had a delicious martini - my first in over a year. It was pretty great!! I miss spending time with him - we are doing our best time spend time with each other but we are both so tired. We are playing baseball every Friday night and Brian's mom comes over to watch Julia so we get that time to ourselves which is nice. The first time we left her I had so much anxiety about it, I knew she would be okay, but you think that you are the only one who really knows what she likes - like how she likes to have her bum patted while falling asleep and how she likes to snuggle after she feeds. Of course she was fine, but I guess that is my job as a Mom - to worry!

The other day Julia and I were laying on the bed and I laughed at something she did - she laughed back at me. This continued for a good 5 mins....it was pretty darn cute. I love her little laugh!

Overall we are doing pretty great!!
