Mama is Feeling Better...

5 Ways we know Mama Harms is feeling better --

#1 - I put cinnamon rolls in the oven this morning for breakfast (they came out of a can - but this is still a big step forward!)

#2 - Mama was home all by herself on Thursday (and did not spend the day in tears or worrying about Abigail)

#3 - Mama did a load of laundry and made herself dinner (even if it did come out of a can)

#4 - Mama was content to watch a movie while Rodney had a late night at work.

#5 (my personal favorite) - Mama was "almost" pooped on yesterday and was pooped on today! This basically means that I am changing more diapers now that Mimi
(Grandma Hekel's preferred Grandma name) has gone home to Illinois. Poor Abigail - she was a mess! I'll spare you the icky details, but let's just say that another load of laundry is in the wash.

Other news --
Abigail is growing! I put her in a newborn sleeper the other day, thinking she would have finally grown into it (she didn't fit into anything when she came home from the hospital). It didn't fit! Our little girl is long and skinny. Her little cheeks are filling out, and she's almost grown out of her newborn size diapers!

Abigail is also becoming more vocal. She rarely cried for her first several weeks home from the hospital, but now she's beginning to communicate quickly how she feels. She is still quickly comforted by mommy and daddy.

Grandma and Grandpa Harms come tomorrow afternoon - hooray! More people to love on our little girl.
