Our Little Baby

Today I finally went for my dentist check-up. I just knew that I was going to have to get lots of work done on my teeth, but thankfully I was all in the clear. Yay! I won't have to return for another six months! Magdalena behaved wonderfully for daddy while I was out, and in fact we had a great time all day. With Magdalena being our first child we have no idea what to expect on so many levels with a baby. But today like so many others she has shown me how much she is just like any other baby. Sometimes she is fussy and sometimes she is happy. Today she was in an incredible mood. Now that we have finally gotten confident with the amount of food to give her, she can spend her time looking around and playing with us instead of crying because of hunger. With the help of Magdalena's nurse and doctor we have come to finally realize that although Magdalena is "different", she is still simply a baby. As she grows we will feed her more. This sounds simple. Feed her when she is hungry. But I really thought that we would continuously get specific instructions like when we left the hospital.

Throughout this fun time we have been able to watch Magdalena learn to smile, to find her tickle spots, and watch her stare at lights and gold objects. Like her favorite thing to look at are the lights hanging from the fan in the living room. And forever I will remember the shape her eyes turn when she gets really upset. Like a sun rising, they turn into the shape that resembles a half of an oval. Sometimes the crying can make me impatient, but I love to see those sweet eyes.

  5. I have been following your blog since August. We found that our son Maxson has t18 in August and the inspiration and hope your sweet girl has brought goes beyond measure. Like you guys Max is our first his due date is Christmas day but we have been trying to figure out what to do for a birth plan. Our prayer is to have Max home on Christmas. Your story has given me hope for that. Thank you for sharing and God bless, Trish

  6. Just want you to know that I am praying for each day with her. I pray that she lives so many days you quit counting them. She is perfect. I know the love you are feeling and there is something about that first baby that is so incredible. My first baby is almost 13 I pray that your Magdalena is here for years and years to come. Enjoy every minute with her not because they are limited but because they are worthy of enjoyment.

    Blessed momma, daddy and sweet Magdalena!
