I'm so excited and I just can't hide it...

We made it!! My little baby is ONE MONTH old and I just can't believe it.

(this is her permanent look when we are having mommy baby time)
To be honest there were times when I didn't know if I could do this. Then my mom died, and i really didn't think i would be able to handle being a mom without a mom of my own. But I convinced myself that I could do it. Then kimmie told me she was moving and the fear came back again. Each day I go through little ups and downs wondering how this is all going to work out, but I'm happy and proud to say that Qiana and I are doing great so far. I'm still getting the hang of things, and just when i think I have her routine down she switches it up on me, but you gotta love her. Right now our world consists mostly of her eating, sleeping, and staring at each other. We do have nap time every afternoon where i put on the Soft hits or love songs station on the tv and we take a little nap together. We also try and have a little dance time...she has to have rhythm and I'm hoping this will ensure that. Since most of my time is spent just looking at her I decided to dedicate this blog to the:

TOP 5 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT HOW SHE LOOKS:

5. Feeding Qiana is quite funny sometimes, since the girl can't seem to sit still for long, and is constantly putting her hands to her face or trying to hold the bottle. The ultimate position for her is holding the bottle with one hand and my finger with the other. She loves holding my hands, unfortunately i can't get a picture of this cause I only have two hands and they are both occupied.


4. her curly hair.

When it's wet you can totally see the major waves that her hair has, and I think when it gets longer you will be able to see it better. Unfortunatly since it's so short once she lays on it or moves around it flattens out. But seriously, all I have to do it get it a little bit wet and it curls right up.

3. Her uncle Tom chin.

I don't have a chin, and i am so jealous that not only does she have a pronounced chin, but that it's a total butt chin like my uncle tom. I think it's the cutest thing ever.

2. Her amazing eyelashes.

Although my eyelashes are very blonde at the ends, I have always been quite proud of their length and i'm so happy that Qiana got them as well. This girl will not have to use mascara.

1. Her lips.


When people see Qiana they say that she has my eyes and my lips, and I am so happy about that. I just love her lips. Her perfect, pink, plump lips. I stare at them all the time, and just can't help but kiss them.

one of my favorite things about having a baby is that you can kiss her/him AS MUCH AS YOU WANT!

She is so cute! Marlee has that same "uncle Tom" chin, and I love it! Although hers we say is from Daddy...but we all know where he got it!

Jill said...

She is adorable Angie! I love that you spend so much time staring at her, soak it up, it goes by fast!

Piper said...

Wow, a month already? Glad you're doing so well!! Don't ever get used to ANY routine!!! They switch it up always. The good thing about that is when they're toddlers, the bad habits can go away in a couple of weeks!
