We went to a halloween party at the church tonight and Cecily was dressed as a flapper girl! She was so cute. Kreg was a little dissapointed that she wasnt going to be an animal of some sort. He asked why she wasnt going to be a Squirell or something ha ha. I told him it was because she is to tiny for all the costumes. Her little dress is actually made for a dog like a poodle or some other small dog! It totally worked for her though. Im just glad she is too little to fight me about wearing the doggy dress. Cecily is holding her bowl ready to get in line for trunk or treating. She is already like her daddy, ready for candy!! Next week on halloween we will be going to a party with the special olypics kids we work with and then a carnival at the college! I will post more pics later.
(Sorry the pic is sideways I couldnt figure out how to make it flip in the posting)
Ok its been a little over two months since baby Cecily was born and every thing has been great. I absolutely loved being pregnant and never had any sickness or problems and even though I had to have an emergency C-section I loved my labor and delivery and I recovered from the surgery super fast. Anyway so everything has been fine until this past week, I seriously feel like my body is falling apart. Aside from the gross after baby jelly belly and the wonderful stretch marks that remind me of my beautiful little girl (those things I can deal with because they come with the mommy territory) the rest of me is now going to pits, I have two ingrown two nails, one on each foot. I have no idea where they came from all of a sudden one day my toes feel like they are going to fall off! I can barely walk and I am stuck wearing flip flops in the snow!! I feel like everyday something new is hurting that has no relevance with having a child. I know I sound like a hypo but does any one else feel this way? Like your body will never be whole again? Oh the joys of child birth! At least it is all worth it when I get to hold Cecily in my arms and kiss her over and over!!!
I am love love loving being a Mom! It is alot of work but so rewarding! I am so blessed to have two jobs that I can do and still be with Cecily. I work with an autistic girl and also do hair from home. I love being with Cecily all day and learning new things about her all of the time. I am not looking forward to the winter but since I will be forced to stay inside I am looking forward to scrap booking and having time for other hobbies!
Cecily is a such a fun baby! She is getting bigger each day and changing so much! She has been very alert from the day she came home from the hospital and is smiling and cooing so much now! Kreg and I wake up in the early morning to her talking in her room it is hilarious! She has been sleeping through the night since she was three weeks old which is so nice for me because I need lots of sleep to function. Everyday she does new things and it makes it so fun for me to watch her learn and grow!
