Milk-Drunk Babe

Last night, after feeding Chloe, I handed her off to Mike and had a marvelous bath. :) Mike got the full show of milk-drunk smiles and even managed to capture a few on "film!" We were just noticing yesterday that at one week of age, she's already getting bigger! We'd been a little concerned that she wasn't getting enough to eat because she loves her sleep so much and wasn't pooping as much as The Book said she should... but her fingers and face are already getting chubby!

Can I just say: screw the book! (Sorry to be so crass, but...) After about 2 months I realzied the book was making me crazy. Sometimes it's useful but sometimes the authors are just insane. (Like when Erik insisted that we follow one of The Books and get rid of Zora's pacifier at 4 months. I told him I didn't have the energy, and not getting rid of it at 4 mos. didn't mean she would for sure be sucking on it kindergarten.)

I felt much better after I got my hands on a copy of "Operating Instructions" by Annie Lamott. Refreshing...a woman who admits it was tough, gets a little snarky about things, and still lvoes the baby and marvels at God's handiwork.

Oh, and what an expressive baby already! She is DEFINTELY the daighter of Meika!!!

I'll have to check out the Anne LaMott book. It occurred to me last night - what on earth did people DO before they had books to tell them that their babies had to poop five times per day or they were malnourished? Amazing how the human race has persisted... and a good reminder to me to chill. :)

Wow the book is just a good refrence when you wonder if you should change formulas when something occurs or fun games you can play with your child at diffrent ages. CJ will let you know what she needs and God will help you understand. I thought I would never learn Seth's cry, even Stacy learned it before me but then it happened. Hold on it is fun :)

Definitly read Operating Instructions. If nothing else it will make you laugh when things get tough!
