my child was wide awake at 1 o'clock this morning. yes- 1 in the AM.
bright eyed & bushy tailed. i went in to soothe her (ie: stick paci in her mouth & tell her to "go back to sleep!") but my efforts were for naught.
when i stuck the paci in her mouth i got a resounding "NO!". tried again, "no, no, no!"
one more time- "NO MAMMA!" and as i stood there, bleary eyed & exasperated- wondering why my child hates me, i got the next round 1 year old brain waves:
"NO NO NO NO!"
wtf?! it's 1 AM!!!!
but it didn't matter. she was awake. so i grabbed her & her blanket from the crib & brought her to our bed. i got her settled & she started babbling about God knows what. and laughing-and pointing at nothing (because, hello. it's dark at 1 AM)
she laid there for a good hour, kicking me, pinching me, pulling my hair, patting my head, squirming, taling, whining- and whatever other methods of torture a 1 year old can think of at 1 o'clock.
somehow the husband sleeps through this (must be nice) but i had to lay there & take it. lot's of :
"that's ENOUGH! go to SLEEP!"
"...yes, i'm mamma. no, puppies are sleeping!"
"...i love you. i swear."
you get the idea. i have no idea when we both fell asleep- i just know we did because i woke up & it was quiet. praise the Lord. and then my alarm went off like 20 min later. dear God.
then when it was time for her to get up, she was tired & cranky. i wonder why?
anyway- i have no idea why she was wide awake. i hope it doesn't happen again tonight-because i might cry.
although i must admit, i had to laugh when she told me "NO!" to her paci & when she started babbling about puppies, teddy bears & milk. she's adorable- no question about it.
anyway- besides the early morning wake up, this weekend was stellar. a bit tiring (sometimes baby#2 really takes it out of me) but nice:
saturday morning. up too early & very pleased with herself.
sunday- if there are 2 things she loves more than blueberries, it's "dadda" & "kai-lan" and that's all there is too is.
oh yeah- one more thing:
apples. this kid loves apples. she'll eat an entire one by herself, and then come begging for more.
and that was our weekend.
well, one more thing- our pumpkin (it's actually for a contest at work- i'd better win! well i didn't actually carve it- the husband did. but whatever)
you can tell what it is, right?
alex sure can- every time she sees it she screams out "PUPPY!!! ...APPLE?!"
