She's changing everyday

I'm amazed at how much she's changed since yesterday. As I look at my little darling, I can see a real person. A real person that is part of me. She is unbelievable!


Sunday afternoon, I assembled the swing we got at the baby shower. Wow, what a great idea. I'd been hesitant to set it up, since I didn't want to expend all options at once. In other words, we've got a good handful of baby chairs, swings, carriers and other assorted gear. I'd like to get the feel of the different items, and how Gabby likes or dislikes them before moving on. By opening all our gear at once, I didn't think we'd be able to give everything a fair chance... Back to the swing. This is a small swing - about 2 feet tall, and sits on the floor. It's ideal for a home without much room - what a coincidence Gabby's house is pretty small! Anyway, I've run the swing at low speed, which seems to suit lil' g just fine. I also attached a black and white design - pilfered from a DSW shopping bag - onto the side of the swing, so Gabby has something interested to stare at. She's not quite into the doll and rattle stage yet. In time.


Today, I got home from work to a wonderful little girl. She was calm, alert, and attentive. I think I spent 20-30 min. just talks to her. What a rare treat! Especially when you consider what happended shortly before I got home...

Do you remeber the poop blow out from Saturday that I told y'all about? Well apparently, that was only warm up. Shortly after Auntie Sara, Auntie Marta, and Papa finished their visit, Gabby let go a poop so powerful that Basia needed to change her shirt, onesie, gown, and diaper. Apparently, this one was all the up her back to her neck...YIKES! But thanks to Basia, because Gabby was clean and happy when I got home.

Here're some pictures... Sunday - Monday

All those poses with her face resting on her chin. Reminds me of Rodin's "The Thinker."
