Vanity Smurf Lives In Our House

So I’m a little concerned that my baby loves the sight of herself so much these days.  She’s becoming quite the little narcissist.  Currently, her favorite toy is a mirror (which doubles as a rattle…so that helps); and when she wakes up in the morning she just stares at herself and smiles HUGE grins and sticks her tongue out.  She just loves it.  Needless to say, smiling has become a much more regular thing.  I’ve even heard a little half giggle from time to time.  Those are rare, but they’re popping up.

There hasn’t been too much excitement around here this week.  We have been having a hard time keeping her feeding volumes where they are supposed to be.  Ever since she had her reflux issues 2 weeks ago, she has moved up in volume, but not where she was prior to her mini- breakdown.  Her pediatrician appointment is Tuesday so we will see if there is anything else we need to do.  We really are hoping they don’t suggest going back on the tube.  I’m pretty sure she’s still doing OK in terms of what she really needs.  We are hoping for some decent weight gain.  I’ll be happy if she’s up to 10 1/2 pounds.

Coraline is still loving bath time, even though she hates getting out of it.  Although she seems to hate it less when she’s dealing with her dad.  Not sure what THAT is all about.

She just loves her baby spa treatment.

This coming week is a really busy one.  Andrew’s having a crazy week at work and between the 3 of us we have 4 doctors appointments.  I also have 3 social engagements (IN ONE WEEK?!  WHAT?!).  By social engagements, I mean hanging out with friends/family for less than 2-3 hours.  But I’m SO excited about it.  So wish us luck on organizing our schedule.  It will be….fun.

Maybe next week we’ll get some decent smiles out of this baby on camera.  For now, she is still holding back when she sees that big black box.

She even got a little tummy time in during photo shoot time!

And then the cat got involved…

Have a good week, everyone.

OH!  This is totally off topic, but CBS Sunday Morning was amazing today, and had their whole show about design, with a big focus on architecture.  I would highly recommend it, if you can grab it online.  That is all.

    I recognize that dress! She is too cute in it! So glad it made the photo shoot. When I saw it I thought this looks just like Erin. And I have decided that most of us like to dress babies in outfits that we would like to wear if we were babies (at least that’s how I dress mine :) Miss you all!
