I never knew what tired was before I became a parent. I used to hate when parents would say things like "you can't understand unless you are a parent" mainly because at the time I would have done anything to be able to understand and yet couldn't. But they were right, ugg, I hate to admit that. Have I been this tired before? Yes, however I was always able to catch up the next few nights, not so with being a parent. It is one sleepless night after another.
We were spoiled our first month home, she would sleep through the night without a peep, not so much anymore. I am hoping that someday soon she will go back to that blissful state of a wonderful sleeper but for now we just live our lives in zombie mode. She goes to bed great but just needs a little extra love several times a night and maybe a bottle or a diaper change once a night.
I am not really complaining (ok, I am a little) but this is a journal of sorts of life in our No Ordinary Family and sleeplessness is what we are living right now. We are also living Teething!!! I think she is getting all of her teeth at once, is that even possible? Well not really but she has 6 front teeth and she is getting at least 2 molars and I think a couple more on the bottom. That has got to hurt, I am so glad I don't remember teething. I think our house is covered in drool, it is like having a boxer or a bulldog. I have been bit at least 47 times this weekend, not on purpose but what do you expect when you stick your finger in a teething toddlers mouth. Baby Orajel seems to help for a little while, it has been added to the list of miracle products I am compiling.
After all that and 3 cups of coffee, I might be ready to start this week. I will leave you with a couple pic's from our weekend. Yes some of them are on Jim's blog but I took them and they were too cute not to post twice.
Chloe thinks this is hilarious!
See no babies were hurt in the making of this blog material :)
Attempting to model some hair clippies I made during nap time. I don't think she was very impressed.
I am trying to teach Chloe to eat steak like all American babies, do ya think it is working?
Have a great week everyone!
