Eight Months!

Eight months old…wow! Where does the time go? Thankfully, in Suzianne’s eighth month, my hormones FINALLY evened out. I started to feel like myself again. Maybe it is these GNC vitamins, or maybe it’s just time healing my tiny body. Either way, it’s good to be back. I’m so back, that I didn’t even cry over not having a white onesie to take this photo in; I totally sobbed over not having one for the month six shot. That’s progress, people!

Seven Months!

My baby doll! She’s growing fast, folks. So big is my baby girl that I don’t even have those nice white onesies on hand for these sorts of photos. You’ll notice I just slapped a sticker on a random grey onsesie. Whateves. You get the point and she’s still cute!

Note the bow. If one more person says to me, “That boy’s gonna be a linebacker!” I’ll scream. So, I’ve started sticking bows in her hair to deter the boy comments. 

Six Months!

OMG, another month has passed since I blogged. Geez o Pete! Well, anyway: Greetings from San Diego! Suzianne spent much of her sixth month hotel hopping and watching mommy lose her mind due to clutter, lost items and the debate about how much baby Orajel is too much baby Orajel.

We looked like this for a week while Dave was driving across the country with his tea cup poodle:

But whatever. She’s a happy, healthy camper and that’s all that matters:

I’m pretty sure that picture is blurry, but it’s cute, so I’m going with it. Although, this one is a more accurate representation of what we see everyday:

This month, we watched in awe as Suzianne became more and more human-like. She now sits up without support:

She tries to hold the bottle on her own:

Note the bags under her eyes…this was taken at 5:40 a.m. today. If you’d sleep a little later, Suzianne, maybe you wouldn’t have those bags…and neither would mommy. Just a thought.

She turns pages in a book:

And then eats them:

She also attempts to pull the poodle’s ears, which I don’t have a picture of because I immediately pounce upon her to prevent Georgia’s ears from detatching from her head.

Oh! And she laughs when we laugh. She is amused by our amusement, as Dave says. Also, she smiles on command and seems to know that an iPhone in front of her face means “smile.”

All in all, Suzianne is thrilled with this move and so are we. We’ve found a fabulous nanny-share family, a great dog groomer, and I can’t even tell you how awesome it is to live one mile from my momma again! Granny Sue Sue and Suzianne are quite the pair and I’m so happy they now are neighbors.

I really do promise to start blogging more frequently. In the meantime…watch her grow! Take a scroll through the Month-by-Month archives.


Five Months!

Happy five months on Earth, baby-o-mine!

Whew! So much has happened in month five. I PROMISE I’ll blog all about it later, but the gist of it is:

  • We’re moving to San Diego;
  • Suzianne is into size two diapers and eating solid foods;
  • I’m no longer breastfeeding (sad face; but, happy to have my body back); and
  • I RAN my first 5k!

More to come. I swear. I’ve been delinquent. But, that’s a good thing, remember? In the meantime….watch her grow! Take a scroll through the Month-by-Month archives.
