Today, my little angel is now 15 weeks old !
She is growing , learning, and expressing herself. She is responsive when she is talked too.She flashes a big toothless grin and she cooes, often emulating the sounds we make make.
She is now trying to stand up when on my lap. She is quite independent too. The baby no longer likes lying down, she prefers to be sitting upright where she can survey her surroundings. A few weeks ago, I noticed that she tantrums and stretches out when she wants something and you are not moving fast enough and her little temper is becoming more apparent ! Yep, my child is definitely MY child ! Spoiled already ! She now has a preference and makes it known that she wants me and not whoever is holding her when she gets tired. She will stop whatever she is doing when she hears my voice. She also now prefers breastmilk over formula and will sometimes refuse the formula.
The baby and I spent the past few days baking Christmas cookies. My sisters and their families arrived this evening for the holiday. The baby chilled in her bouncer while I rolled out cookies and started the next batch.
We baked Rice Krispie Cheese Wafers , Sausage Balls, Snowflake Imprinted Shortbread Cookies , Chocolate Chip English Toffee Cookies , Jack Daniel’s Holiday Fudge and my mom’s recipe Holiday Fudge . I ordered a large box of Snowballs from my friend’s bakery in LA.
My family arrived last night so the annual pjs and dessert party on Christmas Eve will take place !
Since my brother in law has to fly back to CA on Sunday morning, we are having Christmas dinner tomorrow instead of Sunday.
I am livid that two gifts I ordered for my mom and my Godmother are not here ! One order is personalized, wooden tea storage boxes and they should have been here by Christmas and the other order was a new 12 inch IPad Pro for my mom. I am hoping the IPad gets delivered today, but it’s not likely. I don’t think Fedex nor UPS are delivering on Christmas Eve. I now have to go out to the mall to get a gift to put under the tree for my mom.
I am super excited to be spending my first Christmas as a Mommy! Putting up two trees, baking cookies with the baby, and putting on her Christmas outfits have been a blast. My mom ordered her monogrammed pjs for Christmas Eve !
