My First Mother's Day

I'm so happy I was able to spend the day with baby girl and my mom!  With Mom's diagnosis of breast cancer, it's been a tough couple of months for her, yet she continues to be there for me. I hope when the day comes, I can help baby girl as much as she helps me!

Flight Behavior

Flight BehaviorFlight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the narration was wonderful! Kingsolver explores global warming while weaving a story of love and finding one's self. When I picked up this book I didn't know one of the main characters was the monarch butterflies, but since I love anything butterflies, that was an added bonus! I'm a scientist at heart, so learning more about the monarch butterflies definitely appealed to me.

9 Months!

So if you haven't picked up by my paucity of posts, life is a little busy.  I'm reaching the end of residency, getting things set to start a new job, and trying to be a good mom and wife.  So, in an effort to try to keep myself sane and spend time with my family, blogging has been placed on the back burner.

R2D2 is now closer to 10 months old than 9 months, but oh well.  Her pictures are from 9 months at least. 

I can't believe I was once worried about baby girl's weight being too low.  At her 9 month check up, R2D2 weighed 20 pounds, 8 ounces (83%) and was 28 inches (61%) long!!  She fits in a few 9 month clothes, but she's pretty much sporting the 12 month size.
In terms of eating, I'm still breast feeding :)  I love the bond we have and I'm debating if I want to keep up morning and night feeds even after a year of age.  I plan to stop pumping when she's one, i
f not earlier pending my freezer stash.  Unfortunately, I know part of why neck and shoulders hurt is from carrying my pump around every day.  R2D2 is up to about 3 meals a day.  She prefers

to feed herself, Daddy prefers if we feed her (only because she makes a huge mess).  We're letting her try a bunch of things.  She still loves yogurt.

During her 9th month, her favorite thing was probably crawling to try to "pet" Winston or playing with her little tea set.

Sleep was going well, but not now that she's over 9 months, but I'll save that for the ten month post.  For the most part, she was sleeping through the night, even if that meant waking at 4:30 sometimes.

Baby girl still loves to talk.  She clearing saying ba ba ba and using inflections.  And I don't want to jinx anything, but I think the blue eyes are here to stay!

Burnt Out

I feel like there is so much I want to do, but I either don't have the time or the motivation to do it. Honestly, I think I just need to just catch up on sleep. I feel the bank is depleted in that department. Tomorrow is hopefully my last 24 hour shift ever!!
