Normal little Tuesday

Not too much happened today. Julia and I ran a few errands, supervised more bathroom work (including an emergency hole-in-the-wall to fix a leak) (photos to come soon), and walked all around the house a lot. She is just loving it when we let her hold on to our fingers and walk with her. Up and down the hallway, around and around the family room. She doesn't really get the concept of the walker-type toy, so for now, R and I are going to have to put up with the back issues, bending over to help her keep her balance.

She's also teething, I think, because it's been extraordinarily difficult to keep her happy lately. I have to keep reminding myself that she's not being annoying because she's just an annoying baby, but that something is bothering her. It's hard to keep that in mind because all I see is a baby that complains no matter what I do, but in reality, she's probably pretty uncomfortable. She's also been REALLY clingy to me lately. It's kind of cute how she tries to push out of Robert's arms into mine, but I could also use a break from her a little. And a break where I don't hear her crying in the other room because she's looking for me. Could be related to her teething, or just normal separation anxiety for her age. Either way, we're just going to have to ride it out.

Anyways, here's what we did today.

Looked in the mirror:

What's up Momma? Why you bothering my party?

No, seriously. Why you bothering my party?!

And "ate" dinner:

Some percentage of this had to go into her mouth, right?

It looks like such a good effort. Note the cookie in both eyebrows and the hair.

Right after this, she shoved that hand way into her ear to scratch it. Awesome. Thanks Baby.


  1. I love all of these. The mirror ones always crack me up, but the face crayon pictures with the cookie are terrific.

  2. I love her sassy little expressions. Too cute!
