*Eme Grace seems to be fitting in just perfectly with our very waterlogged family. We joked yesterday that the poor girl wakes up and we throw her in the water, rather it be the pool or the Gulf of Mexico & she seems to love it each time.
As much as we were hoping that Daddy & Eme time in the pool was the breakthrough moment...it wasn't. It was just 'a' moment with her Daddy that she was loving. It's all about baby steps in this house.
*We can not seem to get her sleep clock turned around completely. She does not fall asleep before 10:30 on most nights and she will only nap about 20 minutes during the day. I'm glad it's the summer and we have a few months to work on that before school starts and we all need to be in bed before 9.
*She HATES having her teeth brushed. She loves to watch us all brush our teeth, but she is happy to just watch.
Things she has learned:
~She calls out for me in the saddest 'MaMa MaMa' voice.
~She knows her name and looks each time called.
~She signs 'more' & now has decided to sign 'more' between each bite of food and she does it in a very frustrating way, like I'm not shoveling it in quick enough.
~She also signs 'all done', which she learned in China.
~She is loving her seat on the back of the bike.
~She puts her finger up to her mouth and says "sshh"
~She says 'Kita' very quietly
~She mimics sneezes by saying "Ha Choo"
~She says 'Good Girl' very quietly when she uses the potty.
~She has pulled herself up in her crib several times.
~She is on all fours and is giving some serious thought about this crawling gig. Today we are going to hold a 'crawl-a-thon' in hopes of her watching & learning from 3 eager beaver boys to help her learn.
~Dog tired has become a constant state.
~I am constantly behind on laundry.
~I am behind on thank you notes for the first time in my life and I feel horrible.
~My house always seems to be in a state of chaos.
However, all that seems to not really matter when I am rocking my girl and playing on the floor with her. The boys are huge helpers and they are just as in love with their sister as Mommy & Daddy.
Life is crusing by us as fast as the wind & though we seem to always be behind in something, we are loving every minute of it...
