3/8/2011 91 Days Old

March 8th, 2011

On the 91st day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Maya had a good night. She rested peacefully for most of the night. Erin only had to wake up once to comfort her, and Maya was back to sleep in 15 minutes. The extra sleep gained by skipping the 2:30 am feeding is greatly appreciated. I was able to return to work today. When I left Maya and Erin were both asleep. It is funny that Maya and Erin share the same expressions while sleeping. They have the same scrunched up face when I flick the light on in the morning to get dressed. They have the same head kicked back arms flexed stretch when they first wake up. But the cutest is the way they both purse their lips as they try to avoid being pulled out of their slumber before they are ready. I kissed them both goodbye and headed out the door to an incredibly dreary day.

While I was at work Michelle came over to take care of Maya so that Erin could get some work done. When I got home both of my girls were sleeping about where they were when I left this morning. I curled up next to Erin in bed and we held Maya together. Tonight Grandpa Bob and Grandma Chris came by to eat dinner with us and get a little Maya time. Much to Maya’s dismay grandma Chris helped Erin give Maya a bath after dinner. She is still not a fan of bath time.┬áIt has been a good day for Maya. We haven’t noticed any heart rate problems and she has rested well today. She is curled up on Grandma’s lap now. It is days and nights like this one that we cherish every minute of.
