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.
