Seriously, time has flown by. We are 2 months in as a family of five and loving it. We can't imagine life without Capri. She brings so much sweetness to this home of ours.
These are some thoughts from a sleep deprived mom of what life looks like right now:
-Capri sleeps next to me in one super girly bassinet and wakes one to two times a night. Oh how I love those 4 hr segments of sleep. Justin is ready to move her into her room but I have convinced him that she is too sweet and little to be that independent yet. Ha!
-She is starting to coo and has found her limbs. She has yet to smile (only in her sleep have we seen it) but has a happy smirk and look on her face when we kiss her belly.
-She has taught me about sacrifice. I can't drink coffee because it makes her super gassy and gives her a diaper rash. Sacrifice = giving up something you love for something you love more. I would be lying if I said it wasn't really hard for me to give it up. I love coffee. The way it tastes and the comfort of a warm beverage in the morning. I tried to work it back into my diet and she got a horrible diaper rash by evening time. I felt like a really bad mom that I chose coffee over her well being. I have learned just a sliver of what the word sacrifice means...and I mean sliver. I have a lot of growing to do! :) I will really appreciate that cup of coffee in 9 or so months. Each kiddo that God has given us reveals more and more of my selfish nature. I continue to become refined and learn what "dying to self" really means. I love it even though it feels really hard.
-She gets smothered with kisses from every family member. I kiss her enough that it will cover all the days of her life that I won't get to see her. I think we are close to covering her four years of college (1,400 or so kisses). This is no joke. :) (I really don't count but I do know that when she is awake she is being kissed). She is just that lovable.
-She is really tiny but thriving. She hasn't had her 2 month check-up but on our scale she is about to hit ten lbs. She is just about to grow out of newborn clothes and is in a size 1 diaper. She is our smallest baby to date. I'm working hard to plump her up.
-She has blue eyes and I think they will stay blue. Her hair is dark but the fuzz that is coming in looks light.
-She has long fingers and toes and eyelashes.
...that's it for now. I hope to be back soon with pictures of her room. There are just a few more things to do in there (when will I ever find the time)! I will leave you with just a few more pictures:
