2/7/2011 2 Month Birthday

February 7th, 2011

On the 62nd day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. I woke up at 5:30 to feed Maya and get ready for work. She woke up shortly after I started her food, and I got to hold her while she ate. I curled her up against my chest and sat on the bed holding her for almost half an hour. it was a good way to start the day. Over night her sat. and heart rate were fluctuating up and down. It hurts me to see her struggle like she has for the last few days, but when me and her are cuddled up early in the morning all of the worry fads away. A half an hour seems like a long time when we are so cozy early in the morning. She had taken to be cranky for what seems like no reason recently, but this morning she just rested in my arms and nodded off.

I only had to work a half day today so I was home shortly after lunch. When I got home Erin and Maya were still in bed. We pulled the curtains closed and napped. This evening Grandma Kathy came over to see Maya and eat dinner with us. After dinner we filled the kitchen sink to give Maya a birthday bath. We ran the water a little warmer than normal this time. When we put Maya down into her little bathing hammock she squirmed a bit. She made little noises as if to say “I’m pretty sure I don’t like this. The water feels nice and warm, but I remember last time and I don’t like it.” After a while she decided it was OK. That is until we pulled her out of the sink and wrapped her in a towel. Then the cries started to come full force.

Now she is resting in grandma’s arms. Her eyes are wide open, and her recently washed hair is fuzzy and standing on end. It is strange to think that it was two months ago today that we met Maya for the first time. Two full months of admiring the most beautiful girl in the history of the world.

    Happy 2-month birthday! Tell Maya I can relate, I too squirm and cry when forced to bath in a kitchen sink.
