March 5th

Bella, Dad and I dropped her off around 8:30 in the morning and I told them I’d be back to pick her up around 4. Paul looked at me like I was crazy but I knew I had to hold out that long in order to make it thru my first day back at work on the 6th. I teared up when I kissed her goodbye but then rushed from the room before I actually lost my composure. While I did miss her throughout the day, I continued to keep myself busy so I wouldn’t dwell on it too long. Before I knew it, the day had passed and it was time to pick up the girls. I rushed to the school, picked up Bella and hurried down the hall to get my other baby. When I first saw her lying on the floor, I thought she looked so unhappy but then I talked with the teachers and realized she only slept about 2 hours all day long. Later on, I realized I had forgotten to bring her favorite pink blanket. Silly Mommy didn’t realize she had gotten attached to any particular one. She is a princess that is for sure. She then slept all night long for the first time and it was perfect timing for my first day back to work. Now she sleeps a good 6-7 hours at a time every night. She is up to drinking 4oz at a time.

Boy you can really tell she loves having a sister. First time she saw the new Family Dollar logo, she began calling it the Daddy, Mommy, Bella, Ella store. I will not be the one to tell her any different and neither will you. She will be able to read it herself in the next few years….:-) .

She is laughing and smiling at us but it still might be gas. Hard to say.

Went over a friends house to take professional photos of new baby. Ella did great but after 6hrs of manipulating her into weird positions she finally said enough is enough and pee’d on the prop couch. Pics turned out great though. See for yourself…..

So she had her 2 month checkup last week and she now weighs 11 lbs and 12 oz and measures 24.5 inches long. Her vaginal adhesion isn’t healed yet but the doctor will monitor it at the 4mth checkup. The baby acne and dry skin was not caused by the estrogen cream she is taking and is almost gone. I believe washing her face daily or more with baby lotion is helping our cause. She can do all the things she is supposed to be doing. She is a pro at holding her head up. I’m sure it is that freakish upper body strength her dad is always claiming I have.
