I just feel like I should be doing something with her, like her brain is going to go all mushy cause I let her sleep all the time. I know, dumb. I can't help it! LOL
I know that when she is mobile, I will WISH that I could clean my house! :O)

My house is damned near spotless though. All I have left to do is mop the floors and this place is museum-like. Even my office got the royal treatment today. Woo. It is SO nice in here!!
Todd went all Cinderella on me last night and scrubbed the kitchen and bathroom floors on his hands and knees. So my bathrooms and my kitchen are all sparkly! There is not one stitch of laundry that needs to be done either. It is ALL done. AND put away! The dog even got a bath!
So, there IS an upside to her sleeping all day. The downside is that I miss her. I want to play with her. I want to read to her. I want to smell her head. LOL
However, when I wake her, she is NOT happy at ALL, so I just let her sleep....

I have a feeling it is going to be a looooong night. *sigh*
I cannot see myself as having the kind of luck that would have my kid sleep all night again, and then be normal again tomorrow... Nope. Don't see that happening.

Month One - A Recap
She has a nickname, of course, just like everyone else in this house. I call her Sweet Pea. My Mom calls her Princess.
She is now known as 'Princess Sweet Pea'. :O)
Oh, and 'chicken legs'. *snort* But that is just her Momma's lil pet name for her...
I am taking a huge risk here, telling the whole internet what a good baby she is...but, well, she is. She's only a crankypants when she is hungry, or when she's got a loaded diaper. And now that I have put that out there, she will become a spitfire, you watch. LOL
She is eating between 4 and 5 ounces every 3.5 to 5 hours. She sleeps a lot, just not all at once, like most babies. We had a 3 night stretch where she slept from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m. That was glorious, but I knew not to get used to it. She sleeps about 5 hours at night, and again for 2 or 3 hours after her 6 a.m. feeding. I cannot complain about this AT.ALL. Momma naps when she does, sometimes, and the rest of my time is spent with the kitties, cleaning, doing laundry, or just watching Maya sleep.
She is the most beautiful creature I have ever seen. Everyone always says that there is no love like that of a parents love for a child. Everyone told me "Just you wait..."
Holy crap. I was not prepared at ALL for how much I love this little girl. She is my every breath. And seeing Todd with her makes me cry. He is so in love with her. He is so gentle with her and he sings to her all the time (much to Momma's dismay *giggles* ). He was so afraid prior to her birth. Afraid of changing diapers and afraid of handling her. You would never know by watching him that he has never been around a baby before. He looks like an old pro! He wears his spotty, spit upon shoulder spots as a badge, my friends. It is extremely cute, although unpleasant when I hug him, because those spots are right at my nose-level. Yummy.
Everyone has been after me to post some photos, so here goes. I am flat broke right now or I would pay for a pro Flickr account so I could categorize and get more up, but I just cannot right now so this will have to do...
Behold, the chicken legs...
Maya and her Daddy
She has outgrown her first outfit...this is a preemie outfit I had to buy after she was born because everything else was so huge on her. She got to wear it 3 times,a nd this third time, as you can see, she cannot straighten out her legs. LOL
Her first 'tattoo'. Actually, that is a beaded thingy from my Mom's shirt that stuck to her cheek!
Because everyone loves babeh feets...
Her reaction to the Bucs being shut out in their first regular season game ...
Maya and my Mom
My pretty girl..
Aaand tummy time, which she loathes after about 3.6 seconds..

What the ??
When I took Maya to her Docs appointment the other day, I had 3 different encounters where I wanted to smack the other person right in the nose. I had Maya dressed all in pink. Pink onesie, pink socks, pink bib, pink blanket, all snuggled into her pink carseat. And STILL people asked if she was a boy or a girl.
Who puts their boy all in pink? Am I missing something here or are people REALLY that stupid?

She has gained almost a whole pound! My little piggy.
She weighed in at 7 pounds 2 ounces at her two week check-up. She was 6 pounds 5 ounces at her visit a few days after coming home. I think she was 5 days old then..
Doc says shes perfect! Duh. :O)
The breastfeeding thing did not pan out, unfortunately. I spent a whole day crying about it. But you know, I can only do what I can do. I was not making enough. I bought a pump, and was only getting about a quarter ounce between both breasteses at any given time. The Doc says that the most likely reason is that my hormones are back to their pre-pregnancy hijinx. My thyroid was all stupid before, and if that is what has happened again, that could affect milk production. I could go on meds to fix it, and I will...but I cannot feed while on the meds. So..I did the best I could. She is growing and getting fat and stuffs so I had to just get over it.
Now if I could just get her to stop sucking on my shirt every time I hold her.
