And here are just a few reasons that make being a mother extra awesome for me these days:
For records purposes-Lilly had her one month check-up and in doc's words, "She is growing beautifully". She is 9lbs 4.5oz (@birth: 8lbs 10.8oz, left hospital @8lbs 2oz) and 22 1/4 inches(@birth:21 inches). Dr says although she looks quite lean, it's just because she is tall, so we shouldn't worry. Uh yeah, have you seen her brother?? It's been a really busy month, and we are all still adjusting. It seems physically impossible to be up and out of the house before 11am, and only this week have I started getting dressed each day AND making dinner. And that's only happening because my sister is here helping out. Here's to figuring life out before month 2!
