11...once in espanol



When did she change? She looks like a baby and no longer a newborn. She's talking more and growing taller. Her cheeks have filled in and she's starting to get the little chubby legs that you see on most babies. Of course they aren't that big yet because more than one person has told me that she's "skinny" for a baby. I laugh every time I hear that. Of course they aren't saying that she's underfed or malnourished, she's just really active and healthy. She actually has muscle tone, which cracks me up. If she's awake at all, then she's moving. Arms going around, legs kicking, toes exploring and grabbing like fingers, and just chewing away on her hands. It's so great.

Man, I love parenthood!

Oh and I have to brag: We went to the movies for the first time since she was born and we took her! There were explicit signs displayed all over SMG Plano saying they did not allow children under the age of 2 for ANY PG-13 or R rated movies after 6PM. I was worried they weren't going to let us go in, so we didn't make any eye contact. I was certain she was going to sleep through the whole movie anyway, so no worries. She's a really great baby and isn't fussy. Well, we seated ourselves in the back and in the corner in the event we had to make a quick escape. I packed a bottle and some water just in case. 10 minutes into the movie, we clicked our LED flashlight to check on her, and Don said she was like a small animal in a cave: wide-eyed in the dark and quiet. Five minutes after that, she was fast asleep. Good baby! Oh and in case you wondered, we saw "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." Freakin' wonderfully hilarious movie that I would recommend!
