She is Growing up so Fast

Tucy is just about sitting up on her own. She sits in the "tripod" position. She is rolling over like a pro and is inventing new noises every couple of days. She is getting so big I can't believe it! I put her in 6-12 month jeans the other day with an actual tee-shirt. This is huge, because she has been wearing onsies and elastic waist pants. I am having a hard time remembering just how little she used to be and that was only 6 1/2 months ago.

I took her to her 6 month check up about a week and a half ago and she was 14 lbs. 10 oz. and 25 inches long. She is just growing so fast it makes me a little sad, but happy too because she is growing so well. The Dr. said that she is growing like a normal 6 month old and she is developing the same. I guess that the preemie thing isn't a factor anymore, which makes me happy. I never wanted that to be something that she could use as a crutch... or I should say, that we could.

About once a day when I look at her I think to myself, "I can't believe that she is my little girl". It's really incredible how having her has truly changed everything for me and Mike. I knew things would change, but didn't think that it would be quite as hard as it has been. Like the working thing, I thought that it would be a breeze not working and just being mom at home. But, it has been quite difficult to find my groove here at home. I love spending time here with her and seeing everything progress step by step, but at the same time I miss working.

I especially miss the paycheck, duh! I will think that I have it all figured out and then I lose motivation again and am all of the sudden at step one again. This last week I finally cleaned my entire house (laundry and all) and can just maintain it. It relieves so much stress to just have to straighten up instead of blitz the house every time someone announces that they want to come by.

I haven't ever been a very good housekeeper, but staying at home has put this new responsibility on my shoulders... I am in charge of keeping up the house! Mike is working all day and my work is what?!?! You mean I am in charge of making sure that the house stays presentable?!?! I didn't sign up for this. Well, maybe I did... I can't remember... I was drugged at the time... I was on the moon, with Steve!
