Yesterday I felt like I lived someone else’s life. I don’t mean that in the most dramatic of ways, but Emma just had a terrible day. Probably one of the worst in the past 6 months. EVERYTHING upset her. And I mean crocodile tears, squat on the ground kind of cry. I couldn’t get any work done at all. Nothing I did was right. It was awful. She finally went down for a nap (which I think was the problem) at about 1:15. Scott came home at 2 and somewhere in there woke her up. So, the nap she desperately needed was cut short. Thank goodness I did have Scott home yesterday afternoon or would have really gotten nothing done. But she was a pill the rest of the day. We had bath early at 8 even though she didn’t go to sleep until 9. I thought we were going to have a repeat today when she woke up for the day at about 6:45. Ugh, way to early. But she’s been really good. Heather took her to work at 10:30 and they kept her until about 12:30. When she came home, she was very content to play by herself. She went easily down for a nap after some milk and Wiggles at about 2:30 and has been asleep since. I’m actually getting extra stuff done at work at this point. We have been SO busy at work these past few weeks. I have hardly had my normal hours this summer. Lots of overtime is good I guess. I prefer to stay busy anyway.
Emma has started this thing where she puts on her dress up heels (Mary Kate & Ashley sandals) and gets her keys and tells everyone bye. She formed her first phrase last week, which was Bye bye, Mat (what she calls our dog Mattie). Now, when she pretends to leave, it’s bye-bye, Mat, bye-bye, Mommy, bye-bye, Da (Daddy). We’re still working on getting that one on tape. She is always increasing her vocabulary these days. She is always trying to copy what you say. She now calls my sister Heather Hea. It’s funny, it’s like she can’t get the second syllable out. She is still working on Grandma. The best she does sort of sounds like her Emma, an-maw. I can not really tell the difference but Mom says she knows she is trying to say it.
Emma I think sort of understands I am pregnant. She will answer yes if someone asks her if she is going to have a baby sister. I tell her there is a baby in my tummy and to hug and kiss it and she will. She doesn’t point and say baby like I’ve heard of some toddlers doing. She does love babies though. She about tackles Skyler trying to give her a hug. And she sleeps with her baby doll every night after giving her a bath. Really that’s just our way of getting her in the bath every night with no uh-uh’s attached, but she doesn’t know that (yet).
Lexi is getting bigger. And making me bigger. I’ve gained about 14 1/2 lbs so far. Not so bad I guess. I’m 27 weeks. Tomorrow I go for my sugar test. I have to be done eating breakfast by 6:45 am. And then I drink the stuff here by 7:45 and be at the office at 9. I guess it’s an early morning for me tomorrow.
Ooops, up from her nap, gotta go.
