Cuatro Vidas Un Amor: March 2009

Tuesday, March 31, 2009


This is my last week staying home full time with my baby girl. Monday I start teaching full time again and I am kind of dreading it. Don't get me wrong I love teaching and Ihave missed my students but I LOVE being home with Sirlei all day and knowing that I am not missing anything and that she is ok. I am however so fortunate that my mother will be watching her while I am at work, that has made it a little easier to go back. Also, I only have to work two months and then I get the whole summer off to spend with my baby!

More Pics

I know it seems like all I do is post pics of her lately but I use this as a scrapbook to keep track of the big and little events that happen in our life. These pics were taken after her bath, notice as her hair gets dryer and dryer it gets crazier and crazier:) It just won't lay flat. I love it though!

Her hair is combed down all nice

still mostly combed down

starting to dry

getting dryer


Dry and out of control (if you can't tell she is tired of me taking her picture by now)

Here's Twinks, she is pretty good with the baby but can be a bit jealous.

2 Months...... Already?

I can't believe Sirlei is already 2 months old. Time really does fly by. She is at such a fun stage right now, she is smiling all the time and making the cutest sounds. She is attempting to giggle but can't quite figure it out yet. She had her 2 month check up and now weighs 9 lbs 4 oz and is 21 inches tall. She is super healthy and alert! I love being a mom.
