things to remember...and some to forget

after almost 2 months with our sweet baby it is almost impossible to remember life before her.  she has already changed so much in such a short time and there are so many things that i feel the need to write down so i don't forget! (and some that i'm sure i won't mind forgetting).  some of the things that i want to remember that i'm sure will change soon or already have:


  • the smell of her newborn hair
  • how warm and squishy her cheeks get while she is eating...when she finishes i rub my face all over her cheeks
  • the way she stretches in the morning when I first undo her swaddle blanket
  • the first few times she smiled and it was a giant mouth open grin...for no reason
  • the first bath that she took that she enjoyed the whole thing...no tears, no pooping, just relaxation
  • the first time chuck read her "pat the bunny" when she didn't cry at all...she has cried during every other book
and among the things i will happily forget:
  • her colicky time almost every night between 6 and 9
  • the projectile poop that narrowly missed my mouth and landed on the bedspread
  • the countless times she throws up in my shirt right creating a puke stream in my bra
  • our first (and so far only) trip to the ER that lasted 6 hours in the middle of the night
