Week in Review

Another week gone by and unfortunately, it was my last full week at home before I head back to work on Wednesday (saddest day ever!). These past three months have gone by faster than I could have imagined and I'm savoring every last moment with our little girl.
I love taking care of her and I'm going to miss her so much during the day, but that just means we'll make the nights and weekends that much more special :).
So on to some Kathryn updates! This week she started cooing in such a way that she was really trying to talk to us. Her little noises are so sweet.
Today, I caught Kathryn truly sucking her thumb, which I think is the first time she's really done that (or at least the first time I've actually caught her doing it). When she gets hungry, she basically starts gnawing at her hand (she's my little hungry girl!) but today she went specifically for the thumb.
Since I have to go back to work in just a few days, I've been taking advantage of my time off and taking naps with Kathryn, plus she sleeps WAY longer if she sleeps on your chest (I'm talking like 2 1/2 hour naps, she loves being close!). I didn't sleep as long as her, so I took advantage of having my phone close by and snapping a few shots of her peacefully sleeping.

After her nap, I put her in her swing while I did some dishes. As I was finishing up, she was definitely getting hungry and that's when I caught her sucking her thumb! CUTE :)

Geez, Mom. No more pictures!
Here she is hanging out with Dad around 2 a.m the other morning and showing off her skills of lifting up her head on her own. (After he gets home from work, E.J. always goes in to say goodnight to her, and since he had a schedule change that day (he didn't have to be at work until 10 p.m. that night) he decided to pick her up out of her crib to hold her for a bit. It actually worked out nicely because she woke up, ate, and slept until 8 that morning - normally she sleeps until 6ish and then goes back to sleep for a while).
Bath time Mohawk
Excuse me, can you please direct me to the nearest spa? I'm desperately in need of a massage.
Good Morning! Just woke up from another great sleep! (By the way, the past two nights I gave her a bottle and put her to sleep wide awake and without any fussing, she went to bed on her own!! Woo hoo!)
Pretty sunset last night. Here's to a great week and a (hopefully) smooth transition back to work...
