My kids are adorable

Tall baby

Aug. 4th, 2015 09:58 pm
We are hanging out with Zach's family, including our nephew that is 3 months old than Henrietta. Henrietta is at least an inch taller than him. He is actually on the tall side.

I never really realized how tall she was until now.

Henrietta is getting so big and is turning into a little person. She likes to read books, play on the ipad, play with her tractor and has started humming when she wants to sleep.

She loves to tickle people and for some reason thinks that ducks say "tickle tickle tickle".

She doesn't have many words yet but she is so close. I have a feeling she is going to just start talking one day and then she will never shut up.

Even on the days where she is crabby and overwhelming, I am pretty happy with her.

Well... She is just like her mommy & daddy.

Henrietta is fully a toddler now. It is sort of sad, because she doesn't want to nurse anymore and I miss her being less independent but it is also nice that we don't have to watch her every moment of the day. You can let her play with her toys while you cook or hang up laundry, which is a nice break.

She loves to read books but she likes to go really fast through them. She loves grapes and blueberries. She really dislikes green beans.

Our separation didn't seem to phase her, which I think Skype had a lot to do with. She has been a little more clingy to me when I am around but she has always been a cuddly.

I am pretty happy with this baby, she is awesome.
I made it 12 days before breaking down crying that I missed Henrietta. I don't know if that is something to be proud of or not. I mean, I decided to send her away and have kept myself really busy but what does it say that I was mostly okay that she was gone?

Okay, that isn't right, I wasn't okay hat she is gone, I just put it out of my mind. Tonight I could for some reason.

Tomorrow I have lots of things to do I the condo, mostly peeping moulding & doors and priming walls. Sunday I have a pretty packed day.

I leave for Billings in 12 days. So half way there.
I am a little weepy about Zach & Henrietta leaving tomorrow.

Then it will be 23 days before I see them again.

Henrietta went but she mostly slept:
Even Wonder Woman needs a nap.

It is so much fun bringing little kids to CONvergence. Kethry got to see lots of Disney Princesses, including Elsa, her favorite. Also so many superheroes, including many Wonder Women, which both the girls were dressed up as. Henrietta didn't care about it at all. Next year will be more fun with her.

We have been doing "Cry It Out" the last couple of nights to get Henrietta to sleep in her own bed. It actually is working and she doesn't really cry much anymore. I feel like this is the right time for her to do this.

However, we live in a condo building. There is another building 16 feet away. When she cries at least 20 units can hear her. Last night I had a dream that one of our neighbors call Child Protective Services on us and took her away. It made me really sad.

Then I woke up and she was in the bed with me because Zach had stuck her there to eat.

Lately Henrietta hasn't been as interested in nursing. She is eating more regular food and it is hard to want to nurse when you have so much to look at. This means that at least once a day I get engorged. It hurts and I leak all over the place.

Somedays I am so ready to be done with this.

Lately I have been daydreaming about takin a day off work, bringing Henrietta to my mon's house like usual and spending the day by myself.

I am sure I won't since I would feel guilty but it is nice to think about.

My life is pretty awesome, if not exactly the way I want it.

Henrietta had a long day. Though I think she was crying because my aunt kept insisting that the 50s were a much better time and our culture is going down hill.

Sometimes my dad watches Henrietta for an hour or two after my mom goes to work until I get home. Henrietta doesn't usually sleep on him because she is cranky in the afternoon and she just wants me.

Today when I went to pick her up she was passed out on him and he was really happy with that.

I love this picture.
