Paranoid Mom...Maybe, but I'm New at This. Give Me a Break!

Ok, so we all know tis the season for colds. Well, Stella has been stuffy the last couple days and started coughing last night in her sleep. I didn't panic, but I realized if it got worse over the weekend...I'd be mad at myself for not taking her in. So, Yes, I took her in to her first unneeded doctor's appointment. The doc looked at her lungs, ears, and throat and ALL are perfectly fine and CLEAR. But we did get to weigh her again...she now weighs 13 pounds 3 ounces and the doc says she's perfect (we already knew that, but it's nice to hear from others).
We go back next Friday for her 4 month check up and shots.
Here are some recent pictures of our cute little one.
I think she looks so cute here...she scratched her face, but I still love the pic.

Stella and I were cleaning her room and hanging up her clothes (this girls closet goes on for days)...and this is her sitting in the corner of her crib. As you can tell she found a new soft lovie and was very fond of it.

As you can see her little cheeks are chin are chapped, but that's not why I have this picture on here.
For those of you who know me you'll think this is funny, for those who don't...I'm embarrassed.
You see, Stella was on our bed while I was getting ready one morning and she was playing with the blankie in the picture. You might think it looks a little gross looking...well, it's almost 29 years old. That's my blankie. Yes, I still sleep with my blankie. And it wasn't until the morning I took this picture how ridiculous that is. I was talking to my sweet girl and I actually said, "Are you playing with mommy's blankie." It was then I realized it's time to let it go. I know there are other times in my life that I should've let this blanket go (college, marriage, etc), but it wasn't until talking to my sweet girl that a light went off. We'll see when I finally give it up!
