6 months old
Well young lady, you got the chicken pox 5.18.84. You had them everywhere and I mean everywhere. You weigh 18 1/2 pounds now. You roll everywhere and you are never quiet. You say dadada all the time. You have stolen your brother and sister's heart. They play with you every chance they got.
I always thought I had the chicken pox when I was 8 months old. Apparently I believed a lie most of my life.
4 months old
You weigh 16 pds now. You are a pound more than what Kassie weighed at your age. You are a really big girl. You have been sick this past week with a bad head cold. I hope you get better soon. You roll over both ways now. You are very active, you get all around your play pen.
3 Months Old
Well, you are three months old today. You are really the joy of my life right now. You weigh 14 1/2 pounds at 2 1/2 months (big baby.) You really get around in your play pen now. You smile all the time. Your brother and sister are really proud of you. Barbara Belgrade is the one who takes care of you during the day. She just hugs you all day long. You are so tired when you get home, you go straight to sleep. You have a little bit of brown in your blue eyes, so I don't know what color they will end up being. Your hair is really growing. It is about 1/2 inch long already.
the eyes end up being green
7 Weeks Old
Well, I decided to go back to work on 1.15. I still have a lot of weight to lose. I can't fit into my old clothes yet. I plan on doing a lot of exercise in the next couple of days. I found a retired couple to babysit you when I return to work. They are really nice. You are sleeping from 7 to 10 hours at night now. I started you on cereal on a regular basis last week. You really enjoy eating it.
Well you got baptized on 12.11.83. You were exactly one month old. We did it after the 10am mass. You are still sleeping 6 hrs at night, no more than that though. I might be going back to work next Friday. It depends on what the doctor says. I really can't afford to be off from work any longer. The bills are piling up. I"m really sorry I can't spend more time at home with you. I just love holding on to you.
(4 weeks old)
You slept really good up until about five days ago. You wake up every time you wet your pants, so I went to the next size bigger of diaper. I started giving you a little bit of cereal at night. You have been vomiting your soy bean milk almost 2 or 3x's a day now. And you only sleep 2 or 3 hours at a time compared to the 6 hours you were sleeping last week. I still haven't bought you a bed yet, and it looks like it will be a while before we can afford it. I keep hoping your play pen will come in , so you can start sleeping in that.
You have been sleeping really good. You almost never fuss. Just eat, look around and sleep.
For the past four days I have been really sick. They had to start me back on an IV again. They run out every four hours. I vomited twice. My neck was really sore for about two days. I hardly could lift my head off the pillow.
