Mommy's Baby

Today is the last day to enter my birthday give-away. Just leave a comment on this post before midnight tonight and I will draw a winner over the weekend!

I have missed the bloggy world this week, but it was good, I have been feeling a bit burnt out lately. I did collect some cute girlyisms to share though.

I really want to share some photos from Girly's first haircut, but I still can't upload any photos. Not even to flickr, there is something going on with my internet connection. Hopefully I can get it fixed soon.

My Girly loves food. A lot. So much so that she keeps biting her little fingers while trying to stuff some in her mouth. She was in tears 3 or 4 times in one day because she chomped her little piggies. Poor kid, her parents had a really hard time trying not to laugh.

My Girly has been talking about Mommy's 'new baby' a lot. The other day she was sitting on my lap, cuddled up and all of a sudden she sits bolt upright and says, "Mommy I squishin' your baby!"
I told her that it was perfectly okay to cuddle up with mommy's tummy, the baby wasn't squished, it was safe in there.
Then a couple days later she wouldn't come in when we got home and there was snow everywhere. She fell in the snow with no gloves on and she came in crying because her little hands were so very cold. I brought her up to my bed to cuddle and lifted my shirt and told her to put her hands on my tummy to warm up. "No Momma! I don't want to make your baby cold!" So cute!
"It's okay Girly, the baby is safe in Mommy's tummy, it won't get cold."
Now she keeps repeating that to me. "Baby safe in your tummy, Mommy?" and every time I am a bit afraid to answer yes. I do say yes. And then I say a quiet prayer that I am not lying to her. That all is well with the little bean growing in my belly, and will continue to be so.

So looking forward to the weekend and some time to myself, maybe even time for blog catch-up. I had over a thousand unread posts in my reader. Yikes!

  5. Okay, you need to let all those past posts go. You'll make yourself crazy trying to catch up!

    "And then I say a quiet prayer that I am not lying to her." Sigh... I remember that feeling, and those prayers, all too well.
