Happy birthday!

My sweet baby girl turned two this week!

We had a low key celebration; nothing like her first birthday bash. The night before, we took her out for dinner and let her have ice cream for dessert. The day of, she opened presents (her grandparents and aunt came over for a few minutes), then the three of us headed to the zoo before I had to go in to work.

So much has changed in the last two years!

Happy birthday, sweet pea!

Body Awareness

I thought for sure the public embarassment didn't happen till a little later. The other day, Sweet Pea was in the bathroom with me. I didn't think she was really paying attention to what I was doing (she was messing with the towel rack), but then she proclaimed loudly, "Ewww Mommy, stinky!" It was loud enough that I heard Grandma chuckle from the other room.
Tonight as I was rocking with her before bed, she was rocking her doll. She was singing and talking to it. Then I hear her say "nurse?" and she lifted her pajama shirt and held the baby up to her belly for half a minute. Cutest.thing.ever.
I also started my OB rotation. Love.it. Two days in and I'm already considering making this my specialty. It is that awesome. This week I get to spend time on the childbirth unit- hopefully I'll get some good experiences down there and see some exciting laboring/delivering.
