One of the best day’s of my life happened this year, it was birthing Star!
I know I’ve said it a thousand times but it continues to be true, “time is truly flying”. Eight weeks have already flown by, a full two months ya’ll! She went from 7 pounds at her last appointment to 11!! Can you believe that? Homegirl gained almost 4 pounds within the past month. We ( Stephen, I and her doctor) are so pleased since she was struggling those first couple of weeks. At her 2-month-old check up the doctor laughed because I nicknamed her juicy girl. Seriously, I live for a juicy baby, I’m talking chubby cheeks, thigh rolls, arm rolls, + a double chin, she has all of it.
They say, 3rd time is a charm and I have to agree. Little Star is such a good baby, truly she is. She rarely cries, other than being hungry or needing her diaper changed. And let me tell you, she’s such a lady when it comes to being clean, she will not move her bowels more than once in the same diaper. If I try to wait for her to finish, she will cry until changed and then the minute I put a fresh diaper on she immediately goes ! I can already tell she’s going to have a very interesting personality, keep me in your prayers because she and Sparkle are going to be a handful!
Star is very nosey, wants you to only hold her above your shoulder or seat her upright so she can observe everything in her surroundings. She’s going to be a pro at ” people watching” , LOL. Those big bright eyes of her scan the room so quickly, taking in everything and making coo noises. If it’s after school hours, shes bouncing all around the house and when I say bouncing, I mean back and forth between SJ and Sparkle’s lap. Some days, I can tell they drain her because when they go to sleep, you can find her knocked out, mouth wide open, in her sleep she’s laughing and giggling so much. The elders say when babies do that, they are having talks with the Angels. Boy, would I love to listen in on their conversation!
We are truly blessed to have her, we needed her and didn’t even know it, she is the perfect addition to our family. Even on the days where it seems like things are so chaotic, she brings a sense of peace to us.
PS. who do you think she looks like? Everyone says, SJ and I. But I see a mixture of SJ, Sparkle and I. Sorry Stephen LOL
