I'm trying to get Little M to take a nap right now. That is proving more difficult than usual. She had a tough time sleeping last night, too. She seems restless. She is so tired (rubbing eyes, sucking thumb are usually the indicators)... but just won't relax. I can understand why. It was a different week for us. Very different schedule. Different room for her.
There isn't anything on TV. I should be cleaning... oh, or working, but I just told them I didn't have a sitter and could someone else please cover. Let's see how much trouble I'm in on Monday. ha. But I just felt like Sugar Plum needed some extra Mama time. So, here we are. And, I should be cleaning ('cause I digressed there a bit!). I've got people coming over next Sunday. (although, so far, only Sis and Dad/Step-Mom from the fam are coming. I'm a bit disappointed by that... that none of my other relatives have even responded to the invite, except one...and that was to say she wouldn't be here unless she had a ride. boo)
So, I'm just sitting here, thinking I should take my weekly set of pics when SP gets up (of her, of course). Did I mention she's clapping on her own now, and can do even more funny noises? She likes playing pattacake. I've been reading that book, what to expect the first year, and she seems to be mostly on target or ahead in a couple of things... completely arbitrary in my mind, though. One of the items for a 12 month old is playing pattacake and pulling up and maybe even standing on her own for a second or two. She can do all that, except the standing on her own. But she is dang close. She's been doing those for a couple of weeks now, though, so I guess that's a little brag. Ok, it is more like me just thanking God that developmentally she is getting back on target from where she was when we met (although, I didn't think she was too far behind to begin with, just a little).
Are We Really Unhappy?
