One of the first of many magical times, is beginning to happen around here. Olivia will be 8 weeks on Tuesday and she is starting to react and smile at us. Nope, its not just gas anymore! She is staying awake a little more throughout the day now, which means we get to interact with her more. Ella loves to get in her face....ALL THE TIME! Did I say ALL the time? Ok, just making sure....
She is also making noises at us and trying to talk. Her little lips start to curl and tiny coos and googoo gaagaa's come out. Oh how I love this stage! With the postpartum I went through with Ella, which lasted almost 10 weeks, I really feel like I missed out on this stage with her and wasn't able to enjoy it as much as I am with Olivia.
Keith and Ella went up to the cabin with his family for the night and it was just Olivia and I. I cant tell you how much I enjoyed myself. I took a nap. I stayed up late catching up on all the shows I DVR'd. And I slept in until 9am. Granted I had to get up and feed Olivia a couple of times throughout the night, but she is at the point where she will go back to sleep after her belly is full and diaper is changed. It was great quality time!
I am so in love with my little girls....Individually, but most of all together!
