Princess Emery is 8 weeks old!

(this pic cracks me up and boy look at those baby blues!)

Princess Emery,

Today you are 8 weeks old! 8 wonderful, awesome, more than I ever dreamed they would be weeks! You have changed so much and each day seems to bring something new. I love it! I am a little (OK a LOT) exhausted, but I still love it!

Today was a big day because today I had to go back to work and you spent your first whole day with Nana and Paw. I missed you terribly and it broke my heart to leave you, but you didn't seem to mind a bit. Nana said you were so good that it was like you weren't even there. You spent the day smiling, being held, cooing, napping and swinging while looking at the lights on the Christmas tree. Definitely a good day! You do seem a little out of sorts tonight, but I think you are probably trying to adjust to having a different routine today.

You still don't sleep through the night and pretty much wake up every 3-4 hours. Sometimes less, rarely more. It wouldn't be so bad but you are a hard kid to burp (must be because you are SO lady-like) and it takes forever to get you burped and back down. I wouldn't worry as much about the burping but if you don't burp, your reflux causes you a great deal of pain. :o(

You are such a pretty little girl! Your pedi is amazed at the amount of blond hair you have and the fact you haven't lost it. What can we say, you are an overachiever already! You also have long, beautiful eyelashes just like your big brother. You are absolutely gorgeous! I will take full credit in the eyelash department! You also have the most beautiful blue eyes (see above picture), but I have to give your Daddy credit for that... I wonder if they will stay blue like Chase's did?

Speaking of your Daddy and Chase, they are just as much smitten with you as I am. You really seem to have that effect on people and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm so stinkin' lucky!

Happy 8 week birthday Princess!

Love, Mommy

Your Awesome Big Brother - you are a lucky girl!

****I am grateful for
1) making it through the first day back at work
2) only 9 more work days until Christmas break
3) only 4 more work days until the end of the week
4) tomorrow I get to leave early
5) all my friends that welcomed me back and let me cry on their shoulder!
