i feed her, bathe her, clothe her, take care of her–yet my baby loves her mobile more than she loves me.
it just isn’t fair.
ms. cranky muffins does give me random smiles throughout the day, and i have even heard her laugh 3 times now (although it is still mythical to krispin, my mom can back me up on the laugh. and it is adorable. it sounds kinda like a goose honking) but put that baby underneath her mobile and it is all sunshine and sparkles in ramona-land. well, for about 10-15 minutes. and then the moment is over.
but still. i have become an expert at getting necessary things done in 10-15 minutes.
aaaaaaaaaand i am taking her for her 4 month check up on thursday and am only slightly panicky that she still can’t do what most 2 monthers can (motor skills wise. for those of you interested, her head is still really wobbly and she wouldn’t know her own hands existed if they hit her in the face. which they do, sometimes). if she is anything like her mom, she is going to be an extremely late bloomer.
and i really don’t want to rub it in, but my baby has started sleeping for 8-10 hours in a row at night. like, without waking up. i honestly keep waking up at 5 in the morning panicking because i think she is dead. but she’s not–she is just sleeping really well!
so i guess that sometimes if god gives you a cranky baby he gives you a champion sleeper to make up for it all. in any case, it is so nice to feel like a well-rested human again.
