I've discovered lately that I may be forming an acute sense of obsessive behavior and/or thoughts...(To self) "Is she breathing? I just checked on her, check again, Oh asleep and alive!" Now repeat that sequence 20 times through out the night...and quite possibly a few times during the day. I did the same thing with Kalinka and Tatu when they tried to sneak into my bed or join me for a nap on the couch. *sweet cats* All of this because of that crib! I may have to initiate operation sleeping back in mommy's bed.
FYI Athalie's first tooth is in, and the little tator tot is now crawling! Of course to get her to crawl takes much coaxing and many toys, but to see her soldier crawl is well worth it :)

Athalie's pictures turned out a great success even though I spent much more than I assumed they would cost...Lesson learned! Next time I'll just say up front, "What kind of picture does 5 dollars get me?" Which I'm sure would be nothing, maybe a pat on the back. It's worth every penny though to walk down the hallway in the house and see Athalie spread out on the wall like wallpaper! *sigh* perfect

I wish clothing designers made matching outfits for the bebe's and the moma's...Anyhow, as I was thinking what will Athalie be like when she is 5, 10, 15, and 19, I found myself thinking how I was when I was those ages...Oh geez. She'll be obsessed with Paris, think she can make lightning, understand she can't fly but try anyways, make up songs because she'll think life is a musical, and be curious why no one else is singing to each other, wear her shirts backwards, think all purple is definitely matching, 8:00 pm is way to early to go to bed, and 7am is just a cruel hour of the day, and that orange flavored chapstick is a nice snack...*sigh* cann't wait

Just a few milestones...
*Athalie now weighs 12 lbs, sleeps through the night, repeats syllables, has an adorable laugh (Only when I'm in her face conversating, apparently I'm funny looking because I know my social skills are surely inadequate) and she gives herself hickies on her arms! *sigh* One day very far from now I will love telling her this story. Now I'm off to order shredded pastry so I can make these Esh al bulbul's... Konafa with nut aka amazing goodness that I cannot eat because of this diet...*must keep repeating to self how good I'll look in Florida* :)
