Millie's 3 Months

** I wrote this on October 21, 2012, but I forgot to hit post so this was late being posted.

My dearest Millie,

You are three months yesterday baby girl.  I can't believe that it's been three months since you made your debut.  You are such a joy and so sweet.  You love to talk to me and smile, you love your Papa dearly and the  boys (your cousin's) are crazy about you.

You sleep about 6 hours and then want to eat, sometimes you'll sleep through the night, but most of the time you want back in Momma's bed so you're up.  Yes, Momma is trying to break you of co-sleeping and it's not going very well.  You will sleep through the night if I allow you to sleep with me, but Momma needs her sleep too and I worry too much if you're in the bed with me.  (Worst thing I've done yet, I wish I had never started her co-sleeping)

You love to smile and talk, you love to be rocked and to cuddle. You enjoy your playmate  you're not fond of the swing or boucy chair at this point.  But you're truly a happy baby and that's all that matters.

Happy 3 months my love,


Millie's First Halloween

This picture does not do her costume justice, but it was the quick one out the door this morning.  I'll take some real pictures with the actual camera and post soon.  This was taken with my phone. 

Millie is a strawberry for her first halloween.  Millie is such a happy baby, I truly am blessed..

Millie 12-14 weeks

My sweet Millie,

I'm sorry for doing 12-14 weeks all at once, but Mommy is behind.  WOW, I can't believe today that you are 14 weeks!!! Where have the last 14 weeks gone?  You are such a sweet baby and you're happy 99% of the time.  You love to smile and to talk and you sure are crazy about your Papa.  (he's pretty crazy about you too.) 

As always, Momma has a camera in your face and you're not always happy about it but you do sometimes smile rather quickly so that I can hurry and get it out of your face.  You're learning well my dear, that if you give Momma 5 good pictures, she'll put the camera down for the day.  (Spoken like I true photography lover)

Your sleeping in your crib now, your not always sleeping in there all night, but you are starting to get the hang of it.  Momma tries not to let you sleep with her much these days, because we both need are sleep, but sometimes we do cuddle if you wake yourself up at 4 a.m. 

You love your playmate although, you'd rather me put the playmate in the middle of the bed then lay you on it rather than the floor.  Thank God for a king size bed. ;)

You love to kick, but Mommy knew that already, since you loved to kick when you were in my tummy.  You  definitely have some strong legs, you are starting to really have some great head control and love to move your head all around and to look for things.  You love when your spending time with Papa to stare at the pictures of the boys on the wall.  You are so loved by the boys, you surely will be one protected little girl with 4 big boy cousins.  

You are the sweetest little girl my precious baby and I love you more than you'll ever know.  I pray daily that we have a wonderful relationship.

Happy 14 weeks my love,

Happy 11 Weeks Millie!!

Happy 11 weeks to my sweet girl.


You've been on this earth for 11 weeks, 77 days, 2.5 months!!  You are such a joy and a blessing.  I wake up so happy to see your sweet face, I go to bed every night praying that you will have a wonderful life.  While i can't give you everything, I can give you what you need the most and that's my love and support.  I pray daily that you will not lack for anything, yet times are hard as a single Mom and I want to be able to give you everything I had and more.  I pray you will not despise me for not being able to give you everything others could.  I hate the fact that you don't have a backyard to play in, a house of your own to live in, a bedroom of your own, but the one thing you do have is all my love, my unconditional, never failing love.  You are the BEST part of me and the BEST thing that has ever happened to me.  I pray that you have a happy and full life.  I love you sweet angel, more than you will ever know.

Love always,

Millie 10 Weeks

Wow!! I can't believe my sweet girl is 10 weeks old!! Why does it have to go so fast? She is not sleeping through the night yet, but only gets up usually about once, so I can't complain.  It's getting her to sleep in her cradle that's the problem, she sleeps fine in my bed, but I don't want to let her sleep in there for long because then I'll never break her of it.  Suggestions? Tips? 

We've been having a lot of skin issues, poor baby she has such dry skin and her neck breaks out in red dry patches so quick.  She has an appointment with the dermatologist October 31st so we'll see what he says.  

Millie is such a blessing and usually a happy baby, we've been doing a lot of walking together, she's a great walking partner, but I haven't built up my speed back on the treadmill yet.  :( It's depressing but I want to be back at able to run 5 walk 3 like I was when I found out I was pregnant, I know it'll come in time but I'm not the most patient person when it comes to my weight loss. 

Here are a few pictures of Millie from recent days.  I love this sweet girl more than life itself, she is such a sweet angel and I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful baby girl. 

Happy Tuesday!!!
