I started this on the 10th, but time, electricity, etc, etc, just kept me from finishing it. But here it is. 8 moments, events, places that have given me the best feelings since last August. I wanted to finish this and decided to leave it at 8 so I could be done with it.
1.Taking my baby girl to the beach. I love the beach and I think she will grow to love it too. She enjoyed running the sand through her fingers and trying to chase after dogs. Her dog is pretty old and doesn't move too fast. She was really impressed with the dogs chasing balls. We're definitely spending some time at the beach this summer. There's a couple of places that were recommended and I know she will have a great time.
5.Baby girl's room. I adore her room. It is fun, calming, creative - It's just a good place. I love to just stand in it and look around. I loved coming up with and creating all the little details - painting the tree, making the bird mobile, finding the carpet, making the banner, and painting her closet door with chalk paint. I hope she grows to love it just as much as a I do.
8. Hearing people tell me how happy my little girl is. I never get tired of it. She IS really happy. Of course she has her moments - mostly when she is hungry, tired, or determined to have or do something not appropriate, but she is mostly full of smiles. I read somewhere that eating chocolate everyday while pregnant makes for a happy baby. I didn't really need an excuse to eat chocolate but who doesn't want a happy baby? So, eat chocolate everyday is what I did. Even after being diagnosed with gestation diabetes. I love dark chocolate the best and got the ok to eat a square of 70% everyday - and I did. And, I don't know if I can attribute her smiliness to my massive intake of chocolate during pregnancy, but I do have a pretty happy baby!
