Baby Log: 1 Year and 15Weeks Old

Sunday, November 28, 2010

I hate to sound ungrateful, but Thanksgiving was a little sucky. We had very warm weather all week, like high 70s and mid 80s...until Thanksgiving day. The sudden drop in the temperature made me cranky. I think it made Marlie cranky too because she was a fussy-pants all day and screamed throughout Thanksgiving dinner. I believe in giving thanks and all, but all the preparations and cooking for just the three of us was exhausting. My body is still recovering from Post-Thanksgiving shock. All our food was healthy, but I ate too much of everything. I think we should scale back on the cornucopia of conspicuous consumption on this holiday. I would not mind working in a soup kitchen next Thanksgiving and sitting down to eat with them.

The week in review:
  • Marlie has some interesting taste in music. Reggaeton is her new favorite, especially Daddy Yankee.
  • She loves it when I rap this lyric: "sh-shake it, don't break it, it took your mama 9 months to make it." Seriously!
  • She is climbing like a spider monkey on speed. She can now climb onto the rocking chair in her room. You can't leave anything out that she can climb on. We learned that lesson last week when she fell off the step ladder.
  • She is now trying to use her doe eyes and pretty smile to get out of trouble. Me: Marlie, why did you unravel the toilet paper again? Marlie's response: batting her eyelashes and flashing a mega-watt smile.

Sadly they seem to know you can't resist them when they look utterly adorable!

Sorry Thanksgiving wasn't up to par for you. Ours wasn't either considering we had sickies and still do.

I was just saying to someone yesterday- I think god makes babies cute for that reason. It's harder to stay frustrated with them long. I remember with my first, I just couldn't wait till he could walk. Then when he could and got into everything, I wondered what the heck I was thinking. Now with my six month old, I'm saying - take your time!

It's been really cold here!

Aww I'm sorry thanksgiving was crappy. Its my fav holidays aside from christmas.

Jas can only pull that "cute" stuff on me sometimes. I try to make sure she knows what she can and can't do now. And she gets it.

The climbing thing is driving me nuts! Like it really is. I want her to stop it before she has a huge spill!

Ironically, we were sad that it warmed up for Thanksgiving. We had snow all week until Thanksgiving Day. That is scary about the step ladder. Miss V is not much of a climber, for which I am very thankful. None of my kids were for some reason. I, on the other hand, had to get stitches after falling off the top of the refrigerator as a toddler.
