Hello everyone! It seems like forever since we posted something. We appologize to Nayeli's fans!
Not much exciting about Nayeli's first Christmas, as her mommy and daddy were Eberneezer Scrooges. We kept talking about decorating and the days kept passing. Next thing we knew, it was Christmas. Next year we plan to go all out as Nayeli will be older and we can start trying to feed her the Santa Claus stories.
The exciting news of the day.....or shall we say night......is the fact that Nayeli slept from 9pm to 6am last night. I think we both woke several times to make sure we could hear her breathing. It is all a funny process....a month ago, we would have been next to her bedside making sure her chest was rising and falling. We have gotten more comfortable with her sleeping and now usually just listen for her breathing, which is usually very easy to hear as she breaths loud like daddy. So, Nayeli's first full night of sleep. Nayeli also had some good long sleeps into the 4am hours a couple of times this week. We know this wont always be the norm, but we are very excited and hope this is a sign of things to come.
This is no doubt due to the great mommy-ing of Liz. I told Liz she should have been in the military because she is so programmed and runs such a tight scheduling ship. Liz has Nayeli on a schedule now, and has her in bed every night at around 8pm. During the day, she does not Nayeli nap more than two hours at a time, as she has found, that if she stays awake most of the day, she sleeps better at night. So, she gives Nayeli a bath every other day, and on the in between days, she gives her a massage. After the bath, or massage, she feeds her, and that pretty much knocks her out. Last night, since daddy was home, Nayeli decided she wanted daddy to drill instruct her into eating, as only daddy can do. She had a little gas and we had a conversation about the importance of her eating and growing to be a big girl for daddy. Nayeli decided it was in her best interest to eat as daddy too.....can be very persistant. Nayeli has been doing well with her gas. The nutrionist recommended a fortified supplement for her gassy issues and so far she is doing alot better. We forgot to mention her weight and length at the UCSF appt. it was 10lbs 2oz and 22 inches long. Her two month check up is this Wednesday.
We want to thank our regular followers and supporters, as you give us the strength each day. We thank you all for this and hope your 2009 brings health, happiness, and prosperity (in these tough economic times) to your family. We also want to thank God for every day we spend with our baby girl. There is not a day that goes by that we do not realize how blessed and fortunate we are to have Nayeli. We know this is Gods miracle and doing!
