Baby Tuesday...er Wednesday


 Posted by Picasa

I had intended on posting yesterday. Yesterday being Cricket's one week birthday, and I thought it would be nice to post a new photo every Tuesday for a while. But I felt sick yesterday and all I wanted to do was sleep. So today I'm feeling better, thus-- photos.
Top photo: Mojito is very interested in the baby, especially when she squeaks and coos. He's already licked her feet, he can't help himself, he must lick.
Foto numero dos: Kevin planted two watermelon plants in the spring and we hoped and hoped the melons would get nice and big. Unfortunately, the melons aren't gettin' any bigger than softballs. I thought it only fitting to take the picture of the baby watermelon next to the baby. :)

In other baby news, I've been barfed on numerous times, 3 really big ones (those were mostly my fault-- too much food). And last night I broke down and used a pacifier. For those of you who don't keep up with nipple-confusion-philosophies (and why should you?), experts say not to use pacifiers unless it's an "emergency." I think last night counted as one.
I had been up for 3 hours with her rocking, changing diapers, feeding, repeat. She'd fall asleep only to wake up 5 minutes later with air bubbles. That's the only thing that makes her really wail. I decided it was binky-time. To my irritation, I read on the back that it is supposed to be boiled for 2 minutes before first use. Curses! I need it now, not after the water boils!(It reminded me of the gun law that makes the buyer wait 2 days before getting the gun.) I think all the crying made her tired because around 3 a.m. she zonked out and didn't wake up until 7:30 a.m. Oh sweet 4 hours sleep.  Posted by Picasa
