real zzzzzzzzzzz!!!

The past few mornings have been glorious. And I mean GLORIOUS. After fretting in her crib for however long, Dustin will go get Lillienne and bring her into our bed around 7-7.30 everymorning. However, her nightime feeding was at 5am last night so she actually slept in her crib until 8am. WONDEROUS. When she began cawing and squawking at eight thirty, I went to get her and cuddled her up next to me. I closed my eyes. The next time I opened them, Lillienne was just waking up again as well and it was ten thirty. TEN THIRTY!
Trumpets immediately sounded, tiny cherubic angels were floating around the bed and beautiful sunlight filtered through the window.
How wonderful these morning naps are, and I sincerely hope she keeps this up. Theres nothing like a great nights sleep and waking up to a yummy, warm, lavender smelling kid with a huge smile in the morning.

hey you! whats the rush!?

Lillienne missed the memo. Apparently nobody has informed her she is only FOUR AND A HALF months old. She is growing up before my very eyes, yesterday she was looking through my purses and experimenting with my new green eyeshadows.
She now has a total of two teeth on the bottom, they are razor sharp and halfway up, so you can see them very well when she smiles. She is rolling over both ways, and if you run to get yourself a glass of water, she will have motored around on the floor in the opposite direction and moved ahead a foot. She is eating rice cereal a couple times a week, and each time she greets the bowl and spoon as if they are old friends, and they are soon going to be running through a feild of wildflowers together. She has also tried applesauce and squash. Next week, peas and sweet potatoes. The week after that? A six course meal at a red carpet bash. She’s borrowing a purse of mine and wearing my green eyeshadow.
She stares at Dustin and I very intently as we eat, following our forks or spoons. I believe she goes in a food trance during our meal times. She is so content and quiet.
She is sleeping so well. During her very early days there were some horrible nights that she could not would not go to bed, she would not could not till she turned red. Now, as she approaches her 5th month, she is sleeping like a magical baby from babyland, the kind of baby everyone wants and I HAVE. We can put her down awake at night, at her bedtime, and she will fall asleep. We put her down in our bed during the day for naps, I put her down when she is sleepy but not asleep, and she will go to sleep. ON HER OWN. She sleeps through the night every now and then, and she will usually sleep in with me in the mornings as well. She is INCREDI-BABY.
BUT she does need to slow down. She is only 4 and a half months old. Totally missed the memo.

Happy Birthday to me.

Another year, another birthday. Thanks Mom, for squeezing me out of your vag so I might live!! This year I turned 26 and I must say, birthdays just arent what they used to be!! Gone are the balloons, music and ice cream. In it’s place are feelings of saggy boobs, Centrum select vitamins, and filling out applications for myself at the best nursing home in the city.
I spent this years birthday with my lovely baby and my Mom, and it was pretty low key, which was perfectly fine for me. Dustin took me for supper and I ofcourse ordered Lasagna, because this is the only food I live on, and if you cut me open I am sure I would bleed mozzarella and meatsauce.
Dustin bought me a beautiful white gold necklace with a sapphire and diamonds pendant. I am a lucky girl, and this is another piece of REAL jewelry I now own. Someday it’s all going to my rottwieler Oskar, anyhow. I mean Lillienne.
July is going to be GONGSHOW month for us with weddings, holidays, birthdays, BBQ’s and hopefully I will get to indulge in a few alcoholic beverages.
Dear tiny little blog, I am sorry for abandoning you, but there is something we dont usually see here called HOT WEATHER AND SUNSHINE and my skin is so white that if I do not participate in this lovely weather I will surely be classified as an albino and be conisdered as a side show act for the Saskatoon Exhibition.
