Olivia loves her dad! Lately, when he's gotten home from work, he's sat next to us on the couch and started talking about his day. I watch Olivia's eyes get wide as she hears and recognizes his voice. I know she can't talk yet, but I have a feeling she's going "Dad's home! Dad's home!"
Olivia is growing by leaps and bounds. Sometimes she looks so big to me already, and she's only three-and-a-half weeks old! I'm already missing her skinny little newborn legs - now she's got adorable little fat folds developing. It's getting easier to give her a bath now that I'm used to it, but I have to search under her neck folds to make sure I get the washcloth waaayyy deep in there. And I love her chubby little cheeks! At least I know she's eating well, because she's getting heavier to hold.
Nighttime and sleep is still a challenge; last night I got a few two-hour-spurts of rest. I just don't sleep very deeply because my ears don't turn off. Does that make sense? I'm always waiting for some little sound from her cradle. She makes so many noises - and usually as I'm drifting off to sleep, she'll snort or sneeze or something and I'll be awake again. She's a noisy little sleeper!
She's actually taking a nap right now and she looks so cute! Sometimes she smiles in her sleep and I just melt. I can't wait for the day where I get a real smile from her. I'm not sure when that happens (two months? three months?) but I think it will be the best day ever. It makes me smile from ear to ear just thinking about it.
I hope to visit Spirit soon, maybe drop by and see Tom. I'll probably take Olivia in the studio and try and get her to make her cute little noises on-air. :-)
