So yesterday started out nah-so-hot. Baby girl woke up at 4. Okay, different from our usual 5, but no big deal. Then she looked at me with a look that said, "Hey mama, guess what? I don't want to sleep this morning!" Ugh. After fruitlessly trying to get this nugget back to sleep, I gave up around 5:45, flipped on the lights and grabbed the rattle for some playtime. After fussing for an hour, her little face lit up into a huge gummy smile. How can you be mad when you have big ol' eyes smiling at you saying, "Oh thank you, mama! I just want to play!" So what started out crappy got cute pretty fast.
Once Eric woke up, I handed her off to make breakfast. I was talking to him from the kitchen when we realized she was following our whole conversation like a ping pong match. Seriously, hilarious! We tried to keep talking, but we couldn't stop laughing.
Throughout the day, Miss Thing decided she was also anti-nap. Her little routine she usually falls into is something like: up for the day between 7:30 and 9, 45 minute cat nap an hour and a half after waking up, play for 2 hours, looooong afternoon nap (like, 3, sometimes 4 hours), cat nap, bed. Nothing doin'. It was 30 minute cat naps all the way. Basically as soon as I thought she was good and asleep, I'd put her down and *BING* wide awake. Needless to say, not much got done around the apartment.
Then, fit hit the shan again--guess who's back? (back again)
Thrush. Ew. We've been clear for over a week! Almost two! Nope. It's back and all over my baby's upper lip. Soooooo basically, Smurf mouth has made a comeback.
Later on we took a walk and Eric was telling me a story about work. Scarlett was chilling in the Ergo, hanging on his every word. Like, eyes bugging out (even more than usual), glued to his face with a "What happens next, Daddy?!!!" face. Again, we tried to keep talking but we couldn't stop laughing. This kid is just so adorably nosy!
|These eyes! I melt.|
But then it was bath time, and Scarlett has figured out....the splash! Oh yeah, it's cuteness overload! She gets so excited and froggy kicks a frenzy. Sure, Mama was soaked afterwards, but it was totally worth it. I love watching her figure out her likes and dislikes, and bath time is a big, fat LIKE.
So yeah, add all this in with a great 2 month check up the day before (officially 12lbs. and 24 freakin inches long! 90th and 95th percentiles, respectively. Yeeeaaahhh buddy.) We had a pretty happy crummy day.
