Lily was 3 months old yesterday--for some reason this seems like a big milestone for me, I guess I kept saying "once she's 3 months" this will happen or that will happen (I'm not real sure what these things were)--this was how i felt at each point in the pregnancy too so maybe its part of having kids and planning milestones:)
in some ways it feels like just yesterday I was feeling her tumble around in my belly and then other ways I feel like i've been her mom forever and i've been planning my days around her (and singing Old MacDonald in public places--this is Lil's FAVORITE)
So Lily and I went into the lab everyday this week--I was training the woman who is sharing the post-doc position with me (we're sharing the postdoc and childcare which is an amazing opportunity to continue to work and leave Lily with someone I trust and being able to play with the babies part of the time) and since I dont have anyone to take care of Lily, she came and spent the days in the lab
she was great! what a trooper!! We actually were in the lab working for over 6 hours today and Lil was her normal happy self, impressing everyone that she didnt cry or fuss at all (that's my girl...she's never happier than when she's center of attention and people are cooing at her)--but let me tell you what...I'm EXHAUSTED!! this working thing is rough and i'm not quite ready to go back (at all!)
One of the more fun things about being back is getting to show lily off to all the people who saw her growing over the past year--the FedEx guy stopped by and we chatted for a while...things like that:)
So Lily keeps growing like a weed, outfits that were HUGE last week, fit perfectly now and she's almost completely outgrown our 3 month outfits! Her teeth are also starting to show and she is drooling and putting EVERYTHING she can in her mouth...fun fun:)
AND finally i feel it is only fair that I admit that I was one of THOSE ladies today since I complained about it in an earlier blog--a saleswoman came into the lab and she was 8 months pregnant-- of course after the lady cooed over lily, I found myself joining in the conversation with Kate and this lady about birth, and sharing experiences--ug I did it, ha ha nothing like a baby to make people share their most intimate moments and tell stories to strangers:) Oh well -- I didnt even realize it until I got home and I am vowing to try to be better about not engaging into conversations with strangers about childbirth (though in my defense, she did egg Kate and I on)
SO it was a good day and after a bath, Lily is fast asleep after working hard--both of us will be very happy when Justin gets home tomorrow!
