Words from the new Mommy!!!!!!!

the brown and yellow outfits were her gotcha day outfits. The other is some of the cute stuff sissy (Guide) picked out for her that first day.It was amasing that al fit pefectly and she had not even seen Abby yet, size 72 in china,

abby bullets!

She self soothes by scratching her lwft cheek or pulling on her ear, the first night she was hitting her self with a little stacking cup on the head repeatedly when stressed. Have not seen that since thankfully

She loved her bath, played and played was playing with the bubbles.

I stood her by the side of the tub pre bath and took off her diaper and she peed on my leg,

I am officially a mommy, today i wiped my babies nose with my finger (gross I know) gotta do what u gotta do!

I got told 3 times today that she needed more clothes on while we were both swetting. She had on 2 layers! Thy wanted more? It is in the 60's here.

OMG i love her!!

Her diaper rash is getting better!!

Only see one mongolian spot at her cocyx, very small.

She is very tickelish and has the sweetest grin and giggle.

She loves to play peekaboo!

Ate much better today more table food.

Has 6 teeth on bottom and atleast 4 on top.

She can semi crawl, cruises and walkes when fingers held. She cant quite go from a laying to sitting position but her attemps are better. She is a little wobbely while sitting unaided and sometimes falls over.

She is very courious! Nothing gets by her and she doesnt want to miss a thing.

Her favorite toy was a wooden rocking horse. I must get one when I get home.

She has sen a cat but not really touched it.

All I got back with her was her bear, and the 2 were taken!

Da`says her lungs are clear. Little runny nose, whte to clear.

She says, da da , bow bow, uhh and babbles.

When she is really upset she throws her head back and cries.

She loves to be held and cuddled.

Sorry for the typos, now457 am, back to bed, hopefully for a couple hours :)

Love, Jenny
