The weekend went pretty good. Emma did not go to sleep until late Friday and then was up at 5:15 on Saturday. Without her paci, she couldn’t calm herself down but finally I got her back to sleep by walking her up and down the hall. I tihnk we managed to get another hour or so of sleep. But I was like a walking zombie. We went Mom’s shop and I half slept in her comfy chair for about an hour. I did feel a little rested after we left. Saturday afternoon I somehow managed to empty 5 more boxes and organizing my new shelf in my closet. We now only have 2 boxes left and we almost of a clean 3rd bedroom. I keep putting off planning the nursery until it is clean in there. Saturday evening I cooked dinner and had Scott’s family over to eat for my birthday dinner. I didn’t plan it as such but that’s what it turned out to be. Sunday I went to church and then stayed over at Mom’s all day since Scott was working. She cooked me steak dinner for my birthday and then let me take a really long nap!! It was heavenly. Oh and she baked me my favorite chocolate cake she makes. The bad part of yesterday is that Emma didn’t nap while we were at Mom’s so at 6 when I went home, she fell asleep and didn’t wake up until 8. So that meant she did NOT want to go to sleep last night. I think she finally fell asleep a little after 11. She did sleep in until after 7 this morning. She did ask for her paci though. Poor thing.
I am trying to think of the new things Emma has been doing. She will say mess when she drops food or something. Well, a lot of times it is uh-oh. She’s gotten really good at giving kisses. Some of her smacking is very loud! She knows up, down, out, off. She understands I think all of what I say. This morning I was opening mail and told her to go put the magnet on the refrigerator and she did it. She knows where her dirty clothes, diapers, general trash all go. We are working on counting, but everything is two. MIL says 1-2-3-Jump! Emma says 2-2-Jump!
We are having difficulty at our house with her high chair. We have it pulled up to the table without the tray. She will sit in it when there are other people here or any other high chair at someone else’s house pretty as you please and the minute Scott and I have her by ourselves she cries big crocodile tears when we try to put her in there. She acts like it is a punishment. I don’t know what we are going to do. Sometimes we have even put her at a regular chair and she won’t sit there, we have to put her in our lap. I don’t know what the deal is.
The baby has been moving LOTS lately. I feel her at small intervals throughout the day. I definitely don’t remember Emma moving around this much. I am definitely full time in maternity clothes but I have gained only about 5 lbs. It seems like more.
