Kylie smiled at me for the first time the other day!!! It was around five o'clock in the morning when we finished her feeding, burping, and diaper change, and I had just put her back in her crib and in her SwaddleMe when she looks up at me and gives me this big ol' grin. I think my heart melted into a huge puddle right then and there! Now she has been a lot more smiley for Rex and me. Every morning when I undo her SwaddleMe, she stretches really, really big and looks up and smiles at me. I was able to finally get a picture of one too :) and I will try to get a video as well just because she is so darn cute when she does this.
I didn't think it would be possible to love someone this much. Loving my little girl is so different than anything else. I love my husband with all of my heart, but for some reason having this little person so completely dependent on me is more than I ever could imagined.
I love how she
...looks at me when I come into the room
...snorts when she cries
...head butts me when she is hungry
...loves getting her diaper changed so she can stare out the window
...cuddles close after a feeding
...loves going on walks so she can look around at this big, big world
...how she always quiets down for Rex no matter how hard she was crying
I could go on for days!!!
On the cloth diaper front, I found an awesome blog with tons of information!!! This lady seriously thought of everything, from costs to how to fold the prefold cloth diapers. It's wonderful and has helped me get this much closer to cloth diaper Kylie. The site is The Eco-Friendly Family, and it not only covers cloth diapering, but everything green.
