16 weeks ago, God gifted me the most precious gift, my baby girl. She is hands down the love of my life and I could not imagine how I lived or loved before her.
She is such a good baby and has the most pleasant disposition ! She is incredible.
She has amped up her conversation when she is spoken to or if you sing or read to her. She laughs and giggles and smiles so… Her latest milestone or developmental fete is that she completely rolls over and back. She enjoys tummy time and she is not as cranky in her carseat anymore. She travels a lot better ! Thank goodness.
This week, we are headed to NYC, as she has her 4 month well baby checkup and vaccines. I hated watching her get vaccinated last time, but realize it is necessary to keep her healthy. She did not cry long and she slept a lot after she got her vaccines. I had given her Tylenol and Motrin before we went to help offset a fever.
In other news, our mother retired on Friday and also won her EEO complaint she filed against the new Director who started targeting female employees. She is so happy to be a full time Grandmother now ! She says she and baby girl will be hitting the road and traveling the globe.
I am still losing weight… just a pound or two every few weeks. I feel great. I assume it is because I am nursing. I have to see my doctor this week because the front of my left leg is numb. My sister thinks I have a pinched nerve. We shall see…
I am trying to pull myself out of the dumps. My make up artist / dear friend died on December 2nd and last week, my friend, comedian/ actor Ricky Harris passed away of a sudden heart attack. I had just communicated with him two days prior. I am labeling 2016 a serial killer ! I went to church this morning with my mom and the baby and it was announced at the end of service that one of our Ministers, Karen Hampton passed away after a long battle with cancer. She was in the choir with me when I was there full time. I am so sick of hearing about death, I do not know what to do !
Anyway, Happy New Year to you all ! I am spending the day with my family and my sister and I are cooking a fabulous meal.
