Thirty- Three Weeks – The 411

My little spitfire is 33 weeks old !  In another 12 days, she will be EIGHT MONTHS OLD ! 

Not only is she crawling, but she is also pulling herself up to standing !  She knows NO fear and is a busy body baby !

I did not expect her to try to master all of her developmental goals at once lol.

She says “Hi” to everyone, is trying to plant kisses on my face and I swear she is calling me Val ! 

She just got a direct booking for the largest toy store chain in the country ! I am so excited for her. She is just a great baby and I could not have asked for a more perfect gift.
My mother is doing a lot better and is spoiling my baby rotten.  They are two peas in a pod ! Now that my mom can lift and carry her, she comes to our room and steals the baby ! 

I am looking forward to my first official Mother’s Day with a baby outside the womb.

Thirty-Two Weeks Old-The 411

  1. This week, my angel is 32 weeks old.

This week has been incredibly busy and stressful.  

We had to travel back home to NYC for a test shoot with Huggies on Tuesday.  We came back to the DMV to take my mom to PT & OT the next morning.  She has these sessions daily. Today, we took her to PT and OT, went to lunch and now we are at her Oncologist’s office so she can discuss treatment options for the breast cancer.  Thank goodness it is just a small external tumor.

I learned that a close friend was diagnosed this week with colorectal cancer.   It was caught early, however, I hate seeing people who are not deserving of such suffering suffer.  

I am in the planning phase for baby girl’s first birthday bash at Disney’s Animal.  My whole family will be there and also some of our friends.

I am finding the cutest items !!

The cake designer there has been hired and booked and I also ordered custom cookies and a smash cake.  We will freeze the smash cake for her to eat later since I am not a fan of smashing cakes.  I also ordered cupcakes to box up and give as parting gifts. 

We are staying at an amazing resort and I am prepaying for the suites now so that we can concentrate on airline tickets and park entrance fees next. 

My daughter loves Safari animals so she will be excited, I am certain.

My baby is now crawling and getting into everything.  She is so curious about the world around her.   She enjoys her daily lessons with the Experience Baby curriculum we order monthly.  I am ordering My Baby Can Read next to start using with her at age one.  I will start letting her sit on the potty next month.  We will see if she is receptive to it.  Hopefully, she will be potty trained by one or shortly thereafter .

    Thirty Weeks Old -The 411

    My nineteen pound two ounce lovebug is now 30 weeks old !

    She is crawling, able to sit on her tush from a lying down position, says hi and is super active.

    She is absolute perfection !

    She definitely has a mind of her own and had a little ‘tude to boot.

    Our mother is doing remarkably well.  She is now at home with us and has daily outpatient OT & PT.  She is getting stronger every day.

    Thanks to you all for the prayers and healing vibes !
