Lillian had cereal for the first time on Tuesday night. It is supposed to help with the gassiness and her gaining weight. It is really early, but they said it will really help the weight. She was a complete and total mess, not knowing at all what to do with it, but she really liked it and cried for more.
She loves sleeping on her tummy and I'm wishing she could sleep that way at night, because I think we would get a full night's sleep. However, I'm not going to complain because 5 out of the last 6 nights she has slept from 12-7. But from 7 on its up every half hour or so.
I have been trying to attack the chaos Lillian left behind. We bought a treadmill. Yes, its right in the middle of everything in our house, but it's been worth it. Since last Tuesday I have walked 69,000 steps or 28 miles and lost 7+ pounds. Slowwwwwwwwwwwly, but we're making progress at least.
We're in the process of looking for a used Jumperoo, in other words a cheap Jumperoo, for Lilly. She isn't ready quite yet, still has a bit of the bobble head going on, but it won't be but a week or two and she'll be roarin to go. Yet another thing to move every time you want to walk through the house. Yay!
We actually had to put her first two outfits away because they don't fit. One was the preemie sleeper she came home from the hospital in and the other were a pack of Gerber onesies for newborns 5-8 pounds. But, we got a whole bag of stuff from Lilly's (younger) friend Kylie, who outgrew all her newborn stuff already so we're stylin now. She has more than a complete dresser full of newborn and 0-3 month clothes that she is wearing or will wear soon.
Her hair is not growing back in on the top yet but the back hasn't fallen out yet either. It's lookin like when that top hair does start to grow in we'll have the makings of a perfect mullet. Whee!
Richard's Grandma and Grandpa Abrams and his Aunt Penny and Uncle Mike are coming down for a short visit this weekend. It will be their first time meeting Lilly.
Richard earned his CDI Stamp which he's been trying for a while now. It means that he is signing off on the gear that it is safe to fly. You have to have one of these on each shift and before he had his there was only one guy on nights who was qualified. Now that they both have them, they're trying to work out getting short days every other day. We'll see if it really works or not.
We just looked at the calendar and realized Monday is our year and a half anniversary. It sure doesn't seem like that long, but it also seems longer. But it SURE doesn't seem like we should have a 3 month old!
