More on Lily-Ann

03Sep07

People have been quick to point out that I still haven’t provided Lily-Ann’s vitals. Completely my bad. I also haven’t really posted our birth story yet either. Again, my bad. The truth is, I haven’t had much time for the internet lately. Emails go unanswered, my websites go unattended, message boards neglected, blog unposted to… it’s becoming epidemic. I’m unbelievably far behind in every way shape and form. I know things will settle down eventually, and life will return to something close to a normal pace, but for now, I’m simply busy being mama san.

Here’s hoping a couple of measurements will tide everyone over for the time being. πŸ˜‰

Lily was born on 20/07, 2007, at 07:19 – the only way that would have been more perfect would have been if she’d been born at 20:07. πŸ˜‰ She was 7 lbs 14 ounces, and exactly 21 inches long.

Her eyes started out dark blue, and at six weeks and a couple of days, they’re still a lovely dark blue – just like her mommy’s. I couldn’t be more thrilled. As I’m sure you’ve noticed from all the pictures, she’s got perfect alabaster skin, and strawberry blonde hair – again just like her mommy. My hair is also beginning to return to it’s old strawberry blonde self, the mousy brunette that showed up during the pregnancy is disappearing… and again, I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Lily is a strong little girl, and has been holding her head up for a couple of weeks already. She’s got a good grip too. I wanted to find her a rattle that was soft – so that if she hit herself with it, it wouldn’t hurt. However, I couldn’t find one anywhere… until I stopped at Petsmart. So, yes. Her first rattle is actually a dog toy, but it’s soft, small, and it rattles quietly. It’s perfect, exactly what I was looking for. Damon just has to deal with the fact that our dogs play with baby toys and our baby plays with dog toys. A toy is a toy is a toy.

Anyway, so much more I’d love to post about. So many stories to share… but my time is in short supply, and I’m afraid I have to run. Got bottles to clean (no, I’m still not producing enough milk on my own – which is beyond disappointing) and formula to mix before the girlie gets hungry again. She’s so big now, it’s honestly unbelievable. She really is extraordinary. I can’t help but just stare at her and be amazed for a great deal of my day.

Take care!
