She wasn't having it.
So we abandoned the camera and opted for cuddles instead. As soon as I picked her up to soothe her she promptly puked all over herself and down my shirt. Poor baby! Her tummy had been bothering her. We got cleaned up and went to our bed to settle down and cuddle. She was feeling right as rain in no time! So I managed to snap a few more photos.
These days baby girl is bright eyed, alert, and talkative like you wouldn't believe. When I put her into her little lounger bouncy chair she happily chats away to the little toys hanging above her. When you pick her up her face lights up with recognition and a smile. It's amazing.
It's hard for me to put into words how much I love being a mother to Audrey Eleanor. Even when I close my eyes she is often in my dreams. I guess it is because she is such a major part of our lives and is always in my forefront of my thinking. I feel I am exactly where I am supposed to be, doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing. Being a mom. It's not really very glamorous. I wear my sweatpants more often than I wear any other pants. Spit up breast milk is my latest accessory. My diaper bag is stuffed to the gills and I never go anywhere without it.
And life is perfect.
Baby girl is asleep in my lap right now. All I need is Phil to come home from work (and give me a kiss) and I'll be the happiest girl alive.
p.s. - Audrey slept 7 hours straight last night without waking up. BOOM! I feel like a new woman.
