Eskimo Kisses and more

R and I just finished our first full week of residency. I'm on night float and he's on heme/onc, so suffice it to say we are working ridiculously long hours.

We are making sure to have as much with with S as possible. Here are some pictures of S hanging out with her Papa, sharing an Eskimo kiss and a cuddle...

Here are a couple pictures from today on the Downtown Mall. We had pizza for dinner and gelato for dessert. S loved the pizza crust, avocado and tomato toppings, and caramel gelato. Yum!

Evening walks and kerchiefs

R, S and I have been taking evening walks with the pups as the weather has been gorgeous. I carry S in the Snuggli and R walks the dogs - it works out perfectly. I love having her so close to me and I feel like it's great bonding time for us. She will never again be this small and I cherish this stage so much. I will remember these days forever...

Here was S yesterday in her swing. Sweet, precious girl!

R and I have hospital orientation all this week. Today was my mother's first day watching S by herself. It went really well! I missed her so much but she had a lot of fun with Oma. When R and I got home this afternoon from orientation she was excited to see us. Sigh... I wish I could bring her to work with me in the Snuggli. Wouldn't that be something?

Splish splash

S turned 7 months today!

She celebrated by spending the day home with Papa while I was at Ob/Gyn orientation. They had a great time going for a walk around the neighborhood, playing with her toys, jumping in the Jumperoo, and having a few tastes of my vanilla ice cream after dinner.

Here are a couple pictures of her enjoying bath time:

First trip on the UVA Grounds

Today R and I took S on campus to get some pictures by the Rotunda on the Lawn. It was a beautiful day - not too hot - and the Lawn was peaceful and relatively uninhabited which made for great picture taking. S enjoyed sitting on her blanket and taking in all the sights. It was a challenge getting her to make eye contact with the camera but she did her part smiling and laughing the whole way through. Tomorrow she will be 7 months old!

I love when she crinkles her nose from laughing

Visit to the pediatrician today...

...and S was terrified the whole time. It absolutely broke my heart. I thought that her well visits (and subsequent vaccines) would go more easily the older she got, but that has turned out not to be the case. She screamed her poor little self into a tizzy just while having her ears examined and she fell asleep in Papa's arms right afterward.

I wished we could have just gone home after this, but no - we had to have our 6 month vaccine series. S is actually turning 7 months in three days, but because of graduation and our move across the country we decided to postpone these shots until we were a little more settled in our new home. I guess R and I didn't measure her properly at 6 months (or we had a faulty tape measure... haha) and her stats today were 26.5 inches and 17lb 7oz. The growth chart I use online says she is in the 60th% for length and in the 64th% for weight. Oh, and her head is in the 93rd%, just like her Mama and Papa!

Birth 19.25in (48%)
2 mo. 22.50in (67%)
4 mo. 24.00in (50%)
5 mo. 25.50in (78%)
7 mo. 26.50in (60%)

Birth 6lb 6oz (14%)
2 mo. 11lb 8oz (70%)
4 mo. 14lb 4oz (69%)
5 mo. 15lb 12oz (74%)
7 mo. 17lb 7oz (64%)

She was very fussy after her shots and she immediately napped for 2 1/2 hours when we got home. I have been trying to put her down for bed for over an hour but she keeps resisting. I gave her a second dose of Infant Tylenol about 30 minutes ago so hopefully she will start to feel better, soon...

She is a huge water drinker...

...she's a water bottle snatcher! ha ha ha

She loves her sippy cup at meal time, too.

This was S tonight, spending some quality time with Mama on the couch...

So thirsty, Mama!

Can I chew the water out of the bottle?

Please! Please!

Gulp... ahhh


Sweet pea
