So it's not a big secret I am not a fan of snow. On the other hand, Jeff loves it. Of course, he didn't grow up with the mess and ick so what does he know? :)
THIS is what I woke up to, at o'dark hundred (4 am) this morning:
BTW, was anyone wondering why I was awake at 4 am? Little Bit was so, so was Mama. She had her first set of vaccinations yesterday, luckily only (only?) four. She was fine all afternoon and evening, but then she is already on Tylenol for those pesky teeth that keep bothering her but refuse to actually show up. All I want for Christmas is my two front (lower) teeth? :)
But, awake and raring to go at 4am she was. So a diaper change, dose of tylenol and a bottle later (with Mama hoping that bottle would put her back to sleep ... NOPE!) we were in the office playing with toys on her blanket. This is a child desperately trying to play ... while feeling horrible and cranky. Poor baby. I knew she wasn't feeling great when I offered her her most fav food in the world (at the moment) ... strawberry yogurt ... and she pushed the spoon away.
Okay Little Bit, Mama hears you. So at 830 another diaper change and another bottle. This time it worked and she was out cold! Also, if we are going to buy the ultra expensive formula, you'd think she'd have the courtesy to actually *drink* the bottle, wouldn't you? Three sips and asleep. With her little hands fisted in my nightgown. Was that telling me Mama, hold me, don't put me down? I thought so, and so held her and rocked her until she shifted positions and let go. As much as I don't want her sick/not feeling great, I cherished that time. I know all too soon she will be a 'big' girl and not need her Mama to rock her.
Well, we are snuggling in here in our little home. Between the YUCK (oh, I mean snow) and Little Bit we are staying close to home and just hanging out.
