More of a calm day...
I’ve spent the past few hours organizing pictures on my computer, trying to downscale the last batch I uploaded from my camera. It’s so time consuming! But at least I got a good chunk of it done.
I feel like I accomplished a lot of little things today. We didn’t do a whole lot in terms of an outing, just went to the pet store to get food and litter for the girls. I got them some catnip as a treat and they lapped it up as soon as I put it in front of them!
Andrew was up twice through the night last night and was more tired today than usual. He napped for about an hour and a half in the early afternoon! I couldn’t believe he slept that long. I was able to get some laundry done, changed the sheets on the bed, dusted the bedroom and did some clothes tidying in there, did some tidying in Andrew’s room. A bunch of little things that were adding up on my ‘to do’ list. It would have been nice to have a nap myself but it’s either sleep or get the stuff done that really does need doing so…At least I wasn’t as tired today as I often am. I was a bit more chipper than I thought I would be today!
N&M came over for a short visit tonight and Andrew was loving the extra attention!
He is doing new cute things every day. I think he’s starting to mimic language a bit, if that’s what you’d call it…When he’s fussing, especially when getting his diaper changed, I will often get him focused by saying, ‘Andrew, what does the cow say?’ followed by a long, ‘MoooOOOOOoooooooo!’ He loves it when I do that! Well today I said, ‘Andrew, what does the cow say?’ and I kid you not, he put his lips into an ‘O’ and made a sort of ‘Moo’ noise! I couldn’t believe it!! I said, ‘MooooOOOOOoooooooo!’ and he mimicked the sound again! He is so clever. He has been saying ‘Ma-ma-ma’ for a while now, says, ‘Ba-ba-ba’ and in the past few days has started saying ‘Da-da-da,’ much to his Daddy’s delight! He will also sometimes say them together, such as, ‘Ma-Ba-Ba’ or ‘Ba-Da-Da.’ It’s amazing how babies learn, I don’t understand how it all works but it’s incredible to witness it happening!
I gave him run of the house for a while today and he loved it. He was crawling around so fast checking everything out! He is intrigued by this table we have in the hallway by the door. I had to take everything off it because he figured out pretty quick how to step on the bottom shelf of it and prop himself waaaay up to try to reach the do-dads on it. Including an oil lamp, which would NOT be good to have thrown to the ground by little baby hands!! He also enjoyed trying to pull open the cupboard doors in the bathroom. What a little scamp!
Over all he’s been really good about having run of the house though. I of course keep a close watch on what he’s up to but for the most part he will just check things out and then sit there and look around, maybe throw a cat toy around that he found hidden somewhere!
He is so cute.
BUT it’s nearly midnight and he could be up crying again at any time, given his recent track record. So I’d better get some shut eye before it’s too late!
