Move over Gracie Allen, there is a new girl in town

1 Month , 1 Week & 3 Days

BG has inborn comedic timing. I told you about the ‘This little piggie’ poop. Well she did it again. This time while reading, Moo Baa La La La. The last sentence of the book asks the reader, ‘What do you say?” As soon as I asked her what she had to say, she looked straight at me with a nonchalant expression and let out the loudest poop I’ve heard come out of a 9lb baby.

She also has the knack of pooping right after I change her diaper. She’ll look at me with a pouty face and as soon as I stick the last tab and close the wipe box cover she poops and pees.

If her timing continues, I’m going to have to get this kid an agent. lol.

I’m feeling more confident the last few days. I’m getting to know her a bit better, I think. She doesn’t cry as loudly as usual or maybe I’m immune to it. Some cries are low murmurs which tell me she just needs to be held.

The worse cries seem to happen in the middle of the night. Her eyes are shut tight, tears streaming down and she lets out this high pitch cry. Funny thing is, she’s asleep when it happens. There isn’t that morning rumbling where we hear some coos and some stirring and perhaps a little ‘cough’ to get our attention. One minute she’s in deep sleep. I’ll blink and then she’ll make a sour face and then let go with a banshee like wail. Is she having a nightmare? Was she having a pleasant dream and then soiled herself? Good grief.

Baby Blues by Rick Kirkman & Jerry Scott

She sat quickly in her bouncer for longer than 15 minutes.
I cleaned pump parts, ate a sandwich, prepped for dinner and went to the bathroom. When you can accomplish one small task, it’s a blessing.
BG tracked a toy for the first time.
She’s not just tracking human faces. She’s starting to track objects. Thank you Dylan the Duck!

Baby Lessons:
BG becomes very curious and attentive when you sing ‘Lion Sleeps Tonight’
Don’t worry if you only know 2 of the 3 lyrics to the song. She loves the ‘we-um-um-a-way’ part.
