Agenda for today: Visiting Daddy!

This morning we awoke in a panic. All parents experience this sooner or later but for us this is SOONER! We put Lexi to be around 9:00 pm. Around 11:00 she began to fuss a bit but Geoff went in and made sure she had her wash clothes. The next thing we know... the alarm is going off at 5:30. Geoff got up and I thought he was in the shower as I laid there and began to fuss with the baby monitor turning it up, listening intently to hear breathing in Lexi's room. Before I knew it, Geoff was rubbing my arm telling me "she's okay, she's still breathing, she's asleep". I was
SO relieved! I know at her age SIDS is not really a worry but it was so weird to NOT hear her during the night! So then the realization that our daughter is settling in and becoming more comfortable with us and her surroundings set in. What a wonderful feeling! She actually did not wake until 7:15! My Motherly internal clock has already been reset to 5:30 and I love to get up and begin the day with a cup of hot tea and just get ready for LJ to wake up. So after LJ wakes up, we spend a few minutes cooing and changing diapers and finally make it to the kitchen... then the fun begins...

Lexi LOVES breakfast and eggs! This morning after she had her eggs, I gave her some YoBaby yogurt with cereal and fruit. This girl wants to feed herself... so here is the proof!




Needless to say, bathtime was NEXT! We got Lexi all dressed cute for her first visit to Daddy's office. She was a bit reserved but did well letting everyone get a look at her. They are in the middle of tax season and EVERYONE was so open to a distraction from tax time paperwork! Here she is all dressed up for Daddy!



She is such a peanut! These are Carter's size 3 months Capri pants and size 6 months shirt! We are good as long as it's warm season and then I'm afraid we will need alterations to get her pants that fit!

When we came home from lunch with Daddy, I had my parents come over and babysit so that I could go to school and upload grades. They had a ball with her! Lexi has pretty much let my mom be a secondary mommy. I'm very happy about this since she will be taking care of her when I go back to work in 3 weeks.

Let's hope for a repeat performance of sleep tonight! She needs to rest up for her first visit from Grandpa and Grandma from Virgina!
