On Thursday, November 6, 2008 I lost my father. He was 57 years old, and will be missed dearly. It's so funny because now when I look at Lailah I see him. I am thankful that he was able to meet Lailah. Although this is an extremely hard thing to come to terms with, I am happy knowing that his soul is at rest.
On the sweeter side of things, Miss Lailah is a few days shy of 10 months and TONS (literally,LOL :-) of fun. She is alllll over the place bouncing, and dancing, and babbling. She weighs about 21lbs now and is 27 inches long. She is pulling up on furniture and cruising against it..no actual steps on her own as of yet. She has six teeth, and knows how to use them! There is never a dull moment when Lai is awake. I think she's going to be a dancer because whenever music comes she starts bouncing. It's like she can't help herself.Soooo cute.
It's really a cool thing to see her grow up right in front of my eyes. I like to see how she responds to things and tries to figure them out. She first locks her eyes on whatever it is that she wants and then starts a turbo crawl towards it. She fiddles with it for a few seconds with her little fingers..and then straight to the mouth! She's such a happy baby and I truly thank God for that.
Sooo..I got a job working at the YMCA (before and after school care).I like it alot. Mostly I like the fact that Lailah can go there. She is in the infant-12mos room. the first few days were rough, but she's getting along just fine now. As a new mom, it's so frustrating dealing with her being sick all the time..but I'm told it will help build her immune system. I have tons of pics..and hopefully some video coming soon.
