Had Aila's check-up yesterday, and she is a growing 10 lb healthy gal. No longer the newborn with a round belly and skinny legs, she's got cute rolls developing and a nice double chin. Round cheeks too.
She is smiling more at us, and cooing. Cute to watch her begin to communicate. I am thoroughly enjoying her every movement. She still prefers to be cuddled so I walk around with her snuggled up in the moby around me. She sleeps in our bed...while Dav sleeps on the sofa to catch quality zzzzzs...and I relish my snuggle time with her, wrapping myself around her at night. I love how she smells. She gets a bit fussy/fidgety around the 5~6am time frame, so getting up in the morning is still hard since I try to snooze when she finally settles to sleep in the morning.
Tesla continues to be pretty awesome with her, kissing her when she can, running to get her binky when needed, telling me when she's about to cry and I'm not close by. I've yet to get her to change a diaper, however ; )
I am completely in love with little Aila, and sit staring at her a lot. Can you tell?
This picture here (above right), I think looks very much like me when I was a baby. The closest I've ever noticed with either Aila or Tesla. I'll try to get a copy of a particular picture of me I have in mind...
Been trying to capture her smiles, but it's been rather hard.
And just because my mom is so beautiful, here's a lovely pic of her holding Aila (about to cry) in front of calligraphy she did for me, a few days before she went back to Tokyo. We miss her...
