That was the longest & quickest year ever.
I can't really even think about it right now. I'm just giving myself 4 more weeks before I have a total meltdown that I have a toddler. Say what?.....Here she is. Ohhhh Presley girl.
Other than the fact that Presley was up every 2 hours most nights, she had a really good week. Normally, I would let her CIO (Cry It Out) and put herself back to bed - but she still has a tiny bit of her croup cough & I just don't have the heart to make her scream when she doesn't feel good. I'm a softie when it comes to sickness.
She's been a happy girl during the day, playing pretty independently & helping me stay productive and on top of my To-Do list! It's nice for a change....She's progressively getting better. I don't know if it's age or that we are finally figuring her out - but it's nice. Thats another big part of why I just want her to be older - it seems like every month she gets a little bit happier & a little bit more 'normal'. We got to visit a pediatrician this week & she made it sound like it was totally normal to have an upset baby. Thats just my luck. I don't think I've ever met a baby as cranky as Presley - I just have to remind myself (on usually a daily basis) that Presley was chosen for ME. That she needs me as her Mother.
Presley is a dancing machine, every time I sing or she hears music this girl can shake it!! It's funny, she either bounces with her knees, sways side to side or bends over and twerks it. Cracks me up.
Presley LOVES to play chase. We will get down on our hands and knees and follow behind her as she is walking. She looks over her shoulder and gets soooo excited and runs away...she giggles and gets so excited and flashes that big goofy grin! It's one of my favorite things to do with her!
She LOVES Peek-A-Boo, and that instantly cheers her up. A lot of times Presley will get upset when you leave the room & if you peek through the hall/door - she will get excited and follow you. Lifesaver.
She is starting to take direction - I've been working really hard in the bathtub with her to keep her seated so she doesn't slip and fall. Almost every time when I asked her this week to sit down - she did! She is also learning to High Five & waves constantly!
Of course, the iPhone dump:
Silly goose smile // big eater girl // in charge of the remote // selfies
Diaper rash = naked parties // the head tilt // pointing at herself in the camera
Watching movies // bathtime // naptime // waving
Sneaking a bow in her hair // wispy hair // love bow girl // pooping at the table
Waiting to see Sa// Kisses and selfies nta // Asleep in the car
Movietime // Bathtime // Trying to escape the Drs // Fell asleep like that?!
Alright. And BAMM. I am actually on time with my post! Believe it or not. Now I am headed to bed, going to try and get a few hours in before the up every 2 begins around midnight. In other exciting news, it's supposed to be 32 degrees tonight (I guess unheard of here in AZ) Happy Monday lovebirds!
