This is a long time coming. It seems like every time I'm in front of a computer and have time to post, I only have one hand. Trying to type with one hand is not pleasant for me and it takes forever!
I have never met a child that stays so stubbornly awake during long car rides (crying the entire time) or one so particular about how fast you walk her around the house. She loves to be held and looked at and will bursts into almost immediate tears when you set her down.
She still eats every two hours or less during the day. If you try to feed her and she is not hungry, she will get mad.
She hates to be swaddled.
Pacifiers make her angry.
She can only stand her swing for about three minutes or less at a time.
When held, she will often insist on standing up and will scream if you cradle her.
She starts total melt down mode by around 6 o'clock, just in time for Daddy to come home.
Oh and the kicker, she almost always acts like a complete angel around other people.
She is starting to have longer sleep periods at night.
She is becoming more social and her smiles and coos are adorable.
She is scrappy and can already propel herself to her side and almost to her stomach.
Lately while she's eating, she will decide that she'd rather smile and talk to me.
She LOVES to stretch.
She is extremely expressive with the sounds she makes whether happy or complaining. (which makes me believe that she is brilliant of course)
She is starting to smile at Buddy (He likes this, too)
Her little face when it is lit into a smile can just about kill you with cuteness.
While the list of happy things seems a bit shorter than the list of frustrating things, it seems to just about make up for everything.
