I wish that I would have been writing things down from the beginning of her life, but between school, my internship and my part-time job, the first 5 or so months of Adelaide’s life was just too hectic. Now that we are settling into a good routine of being together all day, I feel like I can finally breathe a little. And get things done during naptime, as long as they’re moderately quiet activities. That means doing the dishes is out. My natural clumsiness and slippery, heavy pots and pans don’t make for a tranquil sleeping experience. I also can’t read things written by Tina Fey, apparently. Because they will make me laugh out loud, like this book I recently finished. Anyway, blogging is relatively quiet, so here are a few interesting tidbits about Adelaide at 8 months old.
- Yo Gabba Gabba (Mommy likes it, too! Especially when Bill Hader lookalikes are on the Super Music Friend Show)
- looking into mirrors http://www.facebook.com/v/1557076925534
- dragging herself around by her hands and pushing forward with her toes
- changing clothes
- eating baby food
- going to bed before 9 pm
- being told, “NO!”
- getting her nose cleaned (Who would with one of these suckers?)
Although her likes are more recent developments, those dislikes have remained pretty constant for the last 2 months or so. This has been a really fun age, seeing her personality starting to take shape. I do miss the cuddly and squishy newborn stage every once in a while, but then I get a solid 6-8 hour stretch of sleep, and I rethink things a little.
