Alexandria is growing up.
I want it to freeze!
She’s got such a personality. Peek-a-boo is her favorite game on the planet. All those bows I put in her hair – good luck leaving them there now for longer than 5 minutes. She’s grown to hate her trademark style – but too bad!
Her hair is finally growing in, an adorably shimmery strawberry blonde that I swear gets more red every day. Still no teeth. We have nubs, and white spots, but no official teeth.
She is crawling. She is growing. Just like I begged & prayed to happen. Everyone is constantly telling me to slow down. “Enjoy her now” they all say. “They’re only this little once!”. Oh man thank god they’re only this little once. Since the moment she was born, everything having to do with Alexandria has been intense. From the way she was born (emergency C-Section at 1:17am), to her evenings of screaming (due to GERD), to her dry patches of skin all over her chest (caused by an allergy to milk protein), to cracked, red scaly sores on her cheeks (due to Eczema), to the nightly breathing treatments (Due to asthma – which have stopped as of now – yay!). … intense is a good way to describe the last 8 months, 12 days, 21 hours, and 25 minutes of our lives. All I’ve wanted is for her to outgrow all of these litte baby things!
Now that it’s happening, I’m not sure what I was wishing for.
