Too lucky for words!

Posted by Stephanie & Tyler at 11:15 AM
Being a NICU nurse is the most rewarding and also the most challenging job I have or will ever have in my life! Events this week at work have weighed very heavy on my heart. It's been one of those weeks where i have come home and squeezed Skye a little tighter and a little longer! A few times this week i have cried simply because i am so lucky to have her and that she is 100% perfectly healthy. How are Tyler and I soooo lucky. There are times that as a F/T employee and F/T mom and wife that i feel run down, like i wanna run away and spend a moment alone. Not this week. I have been drinking in every second with Skye this week like she was water and I was a woman dying of thirst! If you're not a parent yet then i don't think you could even understand because i simply CANNOT explain it. Its the way i think it would be like looking at God. You almost have complete silence in that moment of respect, unworthiness, grace, beauty, innocence. Reflecting on the love i have for my daughter makes me want to cry and laugh at the same time. I feel like my heart is going to explode out of my the love i have for her is all encompassing and is too much to be contained in my chest !

On another note Skye has hit a few milestones this past week that are noteworthy. She said her first word "DADA" I think at this point she thinks both Tyler and I are dada cuz she says it a lot around me too. She doesn't really say it indiscriminately around others but just really us :) Everyone says that "DADA" is the first thing all babies say because it's easiest to say. I'm going out on a limb and still calling it her first word because she can realize that she is speaking and that we understand her too. That recognition is what I'm considering her "first word." Also she is standing on her own. Not for very long, about 30 seconds, but she is doing it all on her own. She will often pull up on something on her own, find her steadiness, and then lets go. She's up for a few seconds to a minute and then she realizes she's standing and falls down. A few times i have seen her pull up onto something, let go (standing independently), and transfer onto something else. Its amazing how fast she is growing up! It shouldn't be long before she's walking...maybe as soon as a few weeks to 2 months is my guess. I'm pretty sure i have told you already that she had a second tooth! I think a third and fourth are VERY soon to come. The picture i have included in this post is of her in the tub and you can see her beautiful little teeth.
