Baby News

My baby girl, Cece, when she was just a few hours old.
Amazing how quickly time flies.

Yours truly will be setting down her cocktails for a few months (actually a lot of months) because baby number two is on the way. Yay for the baby, bummer for the booze.

A new bambino will give me all the more incentive to be up to date on new baby gear and gadgets, natural products and new organic clothing lines. If you know about any great brands or baby items, please post a comment. I love hearing about new things.

I've had a complete turn around in attitude about this pregnancy. I was always excited about the baby, just not excited to be pregnant given all the aches and pains that go along with it. I was complaining to friends that September 25th seems SO far away. Then one friend said "You want it to be so far away! These are the last precious months you have alone with your baby girl. You need to cherish every minute!" It hit me like a ton of bricks. It's so true. I need to slow down and cherish every moment I have alone with her. Our world is going to get rocked when we introduce a new baby into our lives. It will be tough on all of us at first - amazing and wonderful of course but exhausting for us and a huge adjustment for my daughter. So I'm enjoying every day with a new attitude and appreciation for these precious months. My little baby is already 21 months old. I can't believe how quickly she has grown up and how much bigger she is going to seem when baby #2 arrives. I'm 13 weeks today and all of a sudden I want it to slooooooooooow down.

(Thanks Lynnie for the great advice!)
