During a trip to Old Navy, I decided to see how she liked sitting in the cart. Normally I wear her in the Ergo, but that really cramps my ability to carry piles of clothes (not to mention try them on). Since she's been sitting up so well lately, it seemed like it might work...
|Mommy, what is this? What am I doing? I...maybe like it?|
|I'm the king of the world!!!!|
Also...I've just started noticing that Millie's left eye often looks crossed in pictures. You can see it in both of these. Is this one of those fun fact infant things that corrects itself, or something worth making our 2810934th trip of the month to the pediatrician about? I'm voting no big deal, but let me know if I'm wrong. As gently and non-alarmist-ly as possible, obviously. ;)
We spent a couple of hours shopping and running errands Saturday morning, then returned home to spend the rest of the day cooking, playing, and watching Parenthood. Oh, and watching Millie grow old before our very eyes. Homegirl is cutting her first tooth!!!!! Despite weeks of me begging her to please stay toothless and gummy and adorable forever...well, she's just not. She has big dreams of steak and corn on the cob, and dangit if she's not growing a tooth just to spite me. I would try to show you a picture of it but it's barely breaking the surface yet and is only visible from the back of her gum, and she acts like the world is ending when I try to move her lips/tongue to look at it, so...pictures aren't really doable just yet. At any rate, it doesn't seem to be bothering her too much. Her cheeks will occasionally turn bright pink (like when she has a fever, only she doesn't), so maybe that's related...but no unexplained fussiness or anything yet, so that's good.
I know it's going to be adorable once she has that little shark tooth sticking up, but also, it's breaking my heart. Waaaaah.
|I will cuddle with you, Mommy, but I will NOT let you look at my tooth. NO WAY.|
On Sunday Millie sported a new dress and an even bigger tooth and was just so cute I basically couldn't stand it.
|Who me? Cute? Nooooo....|
|Slow weekends give me the time I need to ponder deep things.|
This week's goal is to keep the whole family healthy and at work/school for five whole days. Who knew that'd be such a challenge??! I'm also going to try to get back on board with drinking my water, getting in steps, and maaaaaybe phasing back in T25. Can't really say I've missed the punishing daily pain, but my skinny jeans sure do. Ugh.
