We just get back from seeing Dr. Salinas, Lily’s pediatrician. Today was Lily’s 4th month check up and the beginning of the second round of vaccines.
Lily now weighs 16lbs2oz and measures 25″. What a BIG girl she is! 🙂
Dr. Salinas was happy to hear that Lily has been eating such good foods like avocado, sweet potatoes, carrots, butternut squash, bananas, apples and pears. And we were happy to not get in trouble for giving them to Lily since we hadn’t checked with Dr. Salinas prior to giving them to her.
Lily also had 2Â shots. One oral and the other by needle. She took the oral shot quite well and barely cried with the needle shot.
She is such a good and healthy baby Lily. YAY!
Here is Lily on my lap wearing my cardigan waiting for Dr. Salinas and today’s band-aid Tweety Bird!.. Cardigan is from Anthropologie.
We purchased most of Lily’s clothing when she was still in my belly. Mostly because babyGap and Old Navy were having such great end of the season sales.
One of those Old Navy purchases was this little romper.
The romper is size 6-12mths and when we purchased it we obviously didn’t know what Lily looked like. We were just attracted to the style, the print and the 2 cute little mother of pearl flower shaped buttons in the back. It is so wonderful to finally see Lily wearing it.
And well, she sure looks cute in it. LOVE it!
Here is Lily at the beach wearing her romper and sun hat both by Old Navy.
Despite the fact that my hair is still falling out like crazy, that my body is still not quiteÂ like it once was and that I only got up to go for my morning walk twice, I am feeling much more like myself and much better these days.
We went to the beach the past 2 weekends and let me tell you, it really helped. The sun, the beach air and the salt water do wonders.
It also helps that Lily has really taken to solid food so she sleeps longer during the day and during the night. I don’t feel as tired as I used to.
Last thursday night I got to go to dinner with my old co-workers and it feltÂ wonderful to be and feel like Claudia again. I left after giving Lily her dinner and a bit of breast feeding and it was all good!
I knew that what I was going through wasn’t going to last forever but, I’m sure glad that I acknowledged it, felt it, dealt with it and now it has vanished.
For many of you who know me well, you know that I’m probably one of the most camera happy people you have ever met. I always have a camera on me and I’m not afraid to use it.
Now that I have Lily, I’m constantly taking pictures of her. 100 a day sometimes. Thank goodness for digital cameras.
Lily has always been aware of the camera. She looks at it attentively, and she wants it. She wants this object that is constantly in her face.
But does she think it’s a toy? What does she think it is?
We always show her the picture on the screen and she seems to recognize herself but then all she wants to do is lick it and put it in her mouth just like everything else she sees.
Either way, Lily has become my favorite subject to photograph. I just hope she doesn’t think I’m teasing her with a toy she can’t have. 😉
Here she is in motion trying to grab the camera from me. Picture 1- Lily spots the camera. Picture 2- Lily thinks of a plan to get the camera. Picture 3- Lily decides to make a move for it. Picture 4&5- Lily reaches to grab the camera. Picture 6-Â Lily thinks: “Really? you won’t let me have it?”Â Picture 7- Lily has the face of “Seriously mommy, I really want it.”.
