Chunky Monkey on the way

So today we went back to the doctor's so they could weigh her and make sure that she was putting on weight properly. She is now officially 8 pounds 7 ounces...back up above her birth weight. She put on a whole pound in a week, crazy little girl. I'm grateful though. A healthy baby makes a happy mommy.
Tonight as I was putting her to sleep, we were rocking in the rocking chair and I was stroking her forehead, and I realized that I could really do that forever and be happy. It's funny how little itty bitty things like that cement a place in your heart. I love spending quiet time just watching her, or rubbing her back or something. Kids are the greatest.

you have to remember those quiet moments rocking them when they're a baby so you don't kill them when they're a toddler and driving you insane.

just a heads up.
