We love Nicolette's little faces - daddy loves her Popeye face and mommy loves her sweet smiles and Blue Steel face :) (for those not familiar with Zoolander, please refer to the following video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D519hT7-ytY). Now here's Nicolette's version:
|Nicolette's "Blue Steel" face - Supermodel in training|
Daddy loves cuddle time with Baby Nicolette but still gets a little confused about what to do when she gets a little fussy. This morning he took her outside in the Baby Bjorn and they had some nice daddy daughter time that way.
Mommy was brave enough to take Nicolette to Trader Joe's with her this morning and had a clueless First Time Mommy (FTM) moment...I took the carseat in and put it inside the shopping cart (because I've read horror stories about people who have placed the carseat on the top of the shopping cart) and then realized that when the carseat is in the shopping cart, there is literally NO room for groceries! Poor Nicolette had Cucumbers and Zucchini tucked on either side of her seat and I just loaded up the bottom because I didn't know what else to do. Note for next time - I will baby wear either with the Bjorn or a wrap carrier so that my hands and shopping cart are free! It was actually nice to get out of the house - I'm one of the weird people who actually enjoy grocery shopping so I felt a little more like "me" simply by running this small errand.
Nicolette is an EXCELLENT sleeper - she can sleep through Chance the dog-child barking, mommy vacuuming, mommy trying to breastfeed (= FRUSTRATING) pretty much anything. I'm sure this won't last forever so I'm trying to appreciate it instead of getting so irritated and worried about not being able to wake her up for a feeding schedule.

"Thank you mommy for letting me eat when I want to instead of shoving a boob in my face while I'm trying to sleep..."
We have a weigh in at the doctor's office tomorrow and mommy is praying for some nice gains - ready to see some chubby little rolls on this sweet pea!
I've been up since our 3am feeding but surprising feel A-ok...a little drowsy, but I took the time between feedings to shower and actually blow dry my hair...it's amazing how much I appreciate the little things now!
