Month Four

This last Sunday on the 7th you turned four months old.  I have no idea where the hell these last 4 months have gone.  You are this whole little 4 month old person.  And I think it's safe to say that you are the cutest little 4 month old person I've ever known!!!
Unfortunately on Sunday we spent a good portion of our day in Urgent care.  You, at this point, have a little thing called RSV.  I have no idea what it is really but it's definitely not cool.  I refuse to look on web md or any other web site for fear that I will diagnose you with multiple ailments.  I don't want to put you or your father through my narotic tendencies.  They sent you home with a neb after the third time that I brought you in.  It seems to be working so we are praying that you kick this thing quick because you are all out of sorts and we want our little munchkin back. 

This last month has been exciting as usual.  You amaze us every day and we are pretty sure that you are already border line genius!  Thats just me though!
*  The drooling has not stopped and maybe has gotten worse.  If we could figure out something that it could be used for we could make a ton of money!!
*  Your love when your dad tickles you on your face with his beard.  The laughter that comes out of your mouth melts my heart.  And I'm pretty sure each time you do that you get your dad wrapped just a little tighter around your finger!
*  You love to sit up.  You are starting to play in your exersaucer and sitting in the bumbo.  It's not for long periods of time but it's a start. 
*  You have actually started to take a Nuk once in a while.  I'm glad that you don't rely on it but sometimes it works to calm you down.
*  You are a FLIRT.  You love boys, you always smile at your dad and grandpa's and uncles.  Again I'm hoping that this is not a trend.
*  You are grabbing at everything and shoving everything in your mouth.
*  You are becoming attached to your blankie.....I'm pretty sure if they made a big person version I would be attached too!
*  You've discovered your voice and love to hear yourself talk.  We love to hear you talk!! 

This next month should be fun and exciting.  The start of cereal and fruits.  We'll see how that goes!  I love you Lou Lou!!!

Diva Girl

A long time ago my wonderous parents would always say to me "Nik, when you have a child, I hope he or she is exactly like you".  I never really understood this because as far as I was concerned I was a fricken angel!!!  Why wouldn't I want a child just like me?!  Now as an adult I look back and ask why my parents didn't beat me?!  You all know the whole teenage girl issues. 
Some years later in the year 2009 I gave birth to a beautiful little girl.  Now almost 4 months later I understand the statements that my parents made.  I have a daughter just...like....me!  And god help my husband.  At the tender age of only 4 months old she is a total diva girl and already knows how to work her parents.  If she wasn't my child I would give her a big high five and congratulate her on being a total and utter genious!  But she is my child and so I can only sigh and curse my parents what they wished upon me. 
So the other night she fell asleep with me like she usually does around 7:30 or so.  Thats my time to snuggle with her.  I'm sure some might think it's bad that I don't put her to bed awake so she learns but I don't really care.  She's getting so big already and pretty soon she is not going to want to have anything to do with me.  So we snuggle!!! 
I put her in her crib around 8:30.  We heard her around 9:30 so Justin got up unwillingly (only because I asked him to switch nights with me and he wasn't real happy with that request.....I was tired and had a headache!) and went to feed her.  He came back to bed and we could still hear her stirring around so I decided that I would go get her and bring her to bed with us to try to get her to sleep because at this point the two of us were exhausted and didn't really care.  So I went and got her brought her to bed.  Got her all situated and snuggled in with me.  At this point she looked directly at me, smiled, closed her eyes and immediately went to sleep....as if to say "HaHa you suckas, I knew you would come get me!"  SHIT!!!!  What the hell did I do?  All Justin could say was this is not good!!!  At this point all I could do was laugh because what else do you do.  So we feel asleep and I got to snuggle with my little munchkin. 

How do you say No to this??!!
