What I Love About Alyssa - 20 Weeks

Ok I have been following the blog of a bloggy friend who's baby girl was born just a mere 3 days before Alyssa.  Each week she does a "What I Love About You" post and it is the cutest post.  I love reading it each week.  I have wanted to start doing that for Alyssa but seem to run out of time.  I am making myself find the time this week to start it up and am going to commit to make a post each week for my little girl!  I spend so much time posting about my boys and their school activities...I need to show some focus on Alyssa. 

It will also be fun to have these printed in a book for her to cherish years to come!

This first post is going to be about the first 20 weeks (to catch us up!)

I hope you enjoy these posts!

What I Love About You - The First 20 Weeks!

- that you were brought into our lives!  I cannot imagine life without you now.
- that you were only in the NICU for 8 seemed sooo long when it was happening...but I now realize it was only a glimpse of time
- that you and I have bonded so strongly
-that you are a good, quiet baby.  

- that you are adjusting to your brothers (and them to you)

- that you have already started sleeping through the night some (not always but I really can't complain)
-that you rolled over from your belly to your back at 16 weeks
- how cute you looked in the crocheted dresses I made for you (even though I failed to get good pictures of you in most of them and haven't had the time for make ones in larger sizes for you now!)

-How you love to chew on your clothes!  You have gotten to where if you are in a onesie I have to put a bib on you because you get upset when you can't get your onesie to your mouth!  So cute!!!
-the fact that your entire face lights up when you smile!
-How you love to smile at Mommy and Daddy
-How you love to have your brothers talk to you!
-the horrible faces you make when I try to feed you cereal.  You look at me like I am sticking dirt in your mouth!  It is so sad...but still so cute.  I can't wait to see your faces when we try veggies!
-your sweet sweet coos you make when we are snuggling in the chair.  I love our nursing and snuggling times!
-how you are taking such a liking to your pink blanket and your baby doll.  You are such a snuggler!
-how cute you look sucking your thumb.  It makes it so hard for me to try to get you to stop and choose the pacifier instead!
-Your chubby cheeks that just don't quit! : )
-How cute you look when you are sleeping.
-I could go on and on!!  You are my sunshine!
