Month One - A Recap

Maya is 4 weeks old already. She is changing a little bit every day. While it makes me happy to know that she is thriving and doing well, it saddens me also... *sigh*

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

Aaand tummy time, which she loathes after about 3.6 seconds..

I told you that love feeling is like you're going to burst...

Dude, in that pic with your Mom, is that NOT your cooch bottle on the table?! LOL I remember those bottles oh-so-well. LOL!

She's beautiful, and so tiny!!! *wanting tiny baby to cuddle*
oh yeah, one more thing...the Buccs pic? PRICELESS! I hope she got to see a real game on Sunday night! ;)
She's so petite and gorgeous of course :) I'm glad she's such a good baby. Thanks for sharing some pictures.
looks like she's gonna have long legs...think she'll keep those peepers too? they're gorgeous.

JEN I swear she looks just like you!!!
She's so cute; I'm so grateful for the picture post!! Just in case you didn't know, you can post as many pictures as you want through blogger for FREE.
Great pics. What a doll baby! Had to come take a peek!
Thanks for sharing the pictures - I've been patiently waiting to be able to oooh and ahhh over her. She is beautiful!
I had much the same reaction to the Bucs game today. She's so incredibly adorable!
She's grand looking. Mine has a ton of acne, so bad I can't post a picture.
Wow she's gorgeous. Makes me want to run out and get pregnant again - a year before we've actually planned to! LOL
She's beautiful. Really.

Isn't it funny though, how fast this month has gone by, compared to how long it took your ninth month of pregnancy to end? LOL
I just love little girls and alllll the pink. Even though I said I'd never do my girls in pink because I'm not a girly makes me happy to see them in pigtails and dresses.

I want your pink boppy too. DAMN.

She is too cute. Want more pictures soon.y
