9:30 AM: 30-Minute Walk –
Lili is trying to nap, but she’s not quite there. I have her in her rocker/sleeper and slowly she’s getting tired. It was definitely a rough night. She was pretty much up from midnight until 3:30. It wasn’t until 3:30 where I had to put her on my chest to fall asleep. She ended up in bed with us. The last few nights she’s been a good girl in her bassinet, but last night, she just could not get to sleep. She did sleep till 6:30 and I woke up with her (I had about 4-5 hours of sleep total, although it was interrupted sleep). I fed her, pumped, changed her dirty diaper, gave her a bath, dressed her for the day, read her a book, and fed her again. So, that all took a total of 2.5 hours.
Anyway, I didn’t get much done yesterday since I met Courtney for lunch. She is due any day now with Baby Ava. So exciting. If she doesn’t go this Sunday, we’re heading to Emma’s bridal shower together. Getting back to lunch with Courtney, well, it ended up taking me 40-minutes to get to where she works. We sat for an hour, then I left to pick up Pedro some lunch at Qdoba. So, I left the house at noon and didn’t get home till almost 3. I so missed being away from Lili. At the very end of our lunch date, Pedro sent me a picture of her and I almost cried. Oh, what will I do when it’s time to go back to work in just a month?!?
I have a few things to get through today — the food shopping, picking up my paycheck and cleaning up. Pedro’s parents are coming by to see the baby, then tomorrow it’s my girlfriend and Saturday she has her newborn photo shoot. Pedro’s sister-in-law may stop by to see the baby also. Then Sunday it’s the bridal shower. So many things to do. I am excited for her pictures to be taken. I want to send out Birth Announcements asap.
On an unrelated note, I have to say that we are filled with so many wonderful friends. Lili is just two weeks and 1-day old and boy, oh boy, is this little girl so spoiled.
From Aunt Allie, Uncle Justin and baby Cayden. How adorable. I love all the colors and Pedro is so thankful.
From Christy, who just had a baby boy, Jaden. She’s also my hairdresser.
From Aunt Jacquie and Uncle Sean.
From Aunt Deedra & Family!!!
We are blessed with amazing friends and family! Lili wants to dedicate today’s post to each of you. Thank you.
