Baby Log: Week 46

Sunday, July 11, 2010

I am exhausted! Marlie has been a handful lately. I had to pick her up early from school on Wednesday because she was crying inconsolably. The week went downhill from there including fighting naps/sleep, throwing her food to the dog, wanting to play at 3'oclock in the morning, and just generally being uncooperative. I know what you're thinking...babies are not supposed to cooperate. True, but don't tell that to my battered psyche. She's fragile and in recovery from all the blood-curdling screaming. Nothing much else to report this week...
  • Marlie's new favorite thing to do is to walk up the stairs (with help of course)
  • She also likes to go in between spaces. If she sees a gap somewhere, she takes it as an invitation to squeeze through. I have watched her go behind the bed, the nightstand, underneath the desk. Maybe this means she'll be a cave explorer.
  • We had our first major thunderstorm and the clap of thunder scared the beetle juice out of her. One minute she is sitting in the middle of the floor and then the thunder roars and she is suddenly scrambling up in my arms. Mommy will always keep you safe baby girl.
  • Check out my little monkey climbing up the side of my craft table:

It sounds like Marlie and V have been comparing notes on driving their mamas crazing! V has been throwing tantrums, up all night, refusing to nap, etc. also.

Trust me when I say that you will actually look back fondly on this time.

It's impossible to see now...

LOL

O my gosh, Paloma does the same thing when she sees a gap! Out toilet is right next to the wall - apparently not exactly in compliance with code - and she'll squeeze right behind it. Kind of inspires me to keep the bathroom extra clean, so it's not all bad.

Aww . . . . Marlie sounds like she's busy busy busy. What a sweetie. My yorkie shakes for 10 mins after he hears thunder clap and it hurts my heart. I can't imagine how you feel when Marlie gets scared.

Aww. She's growing up. She's at the age where she's learning about more of what she wants. That comes with exploring. I've found that when my child has nightmare or doesn't sleep well at night, she's growing. So many phases they go through. To be able to protect them is a lovely thing.(hugs)
