Updates

Working hasn't given me much time to blog. Anyway, I am super comfortable with the babysitter. DH and Meadow do fine together during the day. I just hate being at work. It would be different if we were busy, but this is our slow time. My mind often wonders to Meadow.

We have reached some milestones this week. Meadow is more alert and seems to really be looking at us. If we ask her to smile (with a big smile) she will smile back. She has also gotten to be quite the talker. I was reading her a Dr. Suess story today, and she kept cooing. I take it she likes Dr. Suess. Today, I went grocery shopping, and noticed she was trying to sit up in her car seat. It was really reclined in the shopping cart. It seemed to me that she was trying to sit up and look around. DH was holding her tonight, and he said that she kept pulling her head forward. At the moment he had her propped on her legs. She somehow ended up on his belly totally uneffected. DH thinks she was practicing gymnastics. With how well she likes baths, water, and tumbling I wonder if she will be a swimmer or a gymnast?

I had my 6 week check up this week. While in the waiting room I was reading a local parenting magazine (which I brought home with me). I FINALLY found some mommy and me gym classes for newborn on up. I would really like to do water exercises with her. Also, there were local mom's clubs listed. I really want to look into that. I think it would be good for us to get out and meet other moms in our age group.

I loved the beginning of the talking stage. You just want to bottle up that sound and keep it forever!!
