It's been a whole year plus since I last published anything on this blog. A LOT has happened in that time, namely Ju and I have had our second child (Kai) and he is doing great, however for those of you who have read our blog in the past, you'll know that the birth with Alaise did not go so well, and indeed we had a very similar experience this time.
Alaise is 4 months old today. I have a difficult time fathoming how long 4 months actually is. Watching her grow, as her eyes sparkle in recognition and interest, 4 months seem so long and so short at the same time. She's starting to grasp at objects, loves to bat at whatever is in her way, have a strong hold on fingers, interested in watching her hands as she moves them. She loves to smile, and the laughters are amazing. She fusses the most when she's tired, and she often wakes up from her naps or in the middle of the night talking to herself. The cooing in the middle of the night is frustrating, but I can't help but laugh, listening to it. Her hair is getting long, and everyone always comments on how much of it she has. She has a crest - her hair waves in a funny way, so it puffs up when it dries.
So last night was a doozy! I think we've hit Lacey's first "growth spurt" because she kept Ju and I up and feeding her almost ever 1 1/2 - 2 hours last night. It's amazing how much she can eat, she's so tiny!
