Baby Log: Week 29

Sunday, March 14, 2010

This week I have been thinking a lot about how time seems to slow down when you have a baby and then suddenly speeds up. Is it my imagination or did Marlie turn into a little person overnight? She is still a baby who needs me to feed her, bathe her, change her diapers. But she is also growing up in other ways...and growing fast. She is responding to her name, trying to stand up, waving, and understanding the tone of our voices (happy, angry, sad). The other day I shouted at the dog and she looked so upset. I have to be careful not to yell around her. She is going to be a very expressive child. I still see a stage and spotlights in her future. What else happened this week...
  • Marlie took her first tumble off our bed. She didn't fall while we were sleeping. She didn't fall because she was left unsupervised. She fell with one of her parents right there (not me!). Damon pleaded Benadryl-induced drowsiness. I didn't freak out, but he's on probation.
  • I took Marlie to the pediatrician for a vaccine on Wednesday. She still has a small knot in her thigh. It looks painful, but she doesn't wince when I touch it. I'm the one that's traumatized.
  • After the doctor visit we met up with Brandy and baby Orlaith (from Irish Baby Bump) for lunch followed by the cry baby matinee at a local theater. We saw The Ghost Writer and Ewan McGregor's ass for the umpteenth time. It was a gripping political thriller (a tad long though). Marlie slept through most of it, but here is a picture of the two little princesses before the show:

  • Our little family went to the lake on Saturday to enjoy the nice weather. Marlie got to touch grass for the first time and tried to eat it. She was quite fetching in her hat.

  • I won a bottle of BabyGanics Germinator, foaming hand sanitizer, from a Savvy Housewife. I think I'll put it in the car.
  • I just realized as I started this post that Marlie and Me has reached 150 followers...look out for a special thank you giveaway this week.

What a cute blog! I jumped over from SITS today...you were above me.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Awwww I love that picture in the grass.

My daughter fell off the bed once. Her and daddy were laying together watching TV and she was probably about Marlie's age. She literally flung herself sideways and tumbled off.

As for the vaccines...yeah I was totally traumatized from them too.

Very cute picture by the lake. So, she likes to eat grass LOL

Sad how fast they grow up and yet it is so wonderful. Such a contradiction of emotions run through me all the time.

She is such a doll! She really is growing up fast. Savor the moments :)
I'm glad you all were able to enjoy some nice Spring weather.

She is growing in leaps and bounds! I feel like it was just yesterday that her almost newborn pics were up on here....

My best, Lynn

I know what you mean, I'm totally traumatized by getting Cedella some shots today. Just wrote about it...check it out when you can.

Marlie is so cute in her little sun hat! And such a grown look on her face in the picture with her little friend. Very expressive indeed!

Congrats on reaching the 150 milestone! It seems like just last week that you were pushing to get 100 and then all of sudden you added another 50 just like that! Marlie is so adorable in both shots, but I do love the lake shot and her hat.

Just the other day I was thinking about how you don't really see baby bonnets anymore and now I see such a bonnet on your little one. That is quite an adorable picture.
