The Highlights and Lowlights

Sunday we had some friends over for lunch. In an effort to share with Constance, their 14 month old son ended up hitting our baby with a big Lego block. Regardless to say, she really did not appreciate that.

Monday Constance gave us a pretty bad diaper. I pulled her out of her exersaucer and knew she was dirty…I just did not know how much. When I laid her on her back the rest of the mess went up her back and all over her p.j.'s (which happen to be one of my favorites). Since she now thinks it is her job to roll in any direction she can when we change her diapers she started getting it on the front of her shirt as well, not to mention it was on the floor. I wiped her as clean as I possibly could and took off all her clothes so I could run some bath water. When I came back for Constance she had decided it would be fun to wet on our hardwood floor which of course was now all over her.

On Tuesday evening while watching a show on television, Constance was playing on the floor in front of us. Our cat Sugarwafer decided to come in and lay within arms reach of the baby. Within a very short amount of time she successfully grabbed his enticing tail and would not let go till we pried her fingers off. Thankfully Sugarwafer did not turn around and swipe at Constance.

Tuesday night she slept from 10p.m.-5a.m. and Keith was able to get her to go back to sleep till 7a.m. That has been the longest she has slept in a long time. I kept waking up wondering if she was alright.

Wednesday morning greets us and I discover that Constance has another tooth that has peaked its little sharp head. Hopefully that means she will start sleeping through the night again. If that is the case, a month long teething session just for one tooth is not going to cut it (Ha! Get it? Cut it, like she is cutting her teeth. I know I have too much time on my hands).

Another neat thing is that she is trying to figure out how to crawl. She will rise up on her hands as far as she can go and then scoot her knees under her for a few seconds and then fall. It will not be too much longer before she figures it out and then we will really have to watch her.

She also waves now…however her hand is always turned towards her when she does it. It looks like she is waving at herself! How cute!


  1. Ha--cut it! Got it! LOL!

    She is becoming such a busy little girl. More teeth. Almost crawling. I can't wait to see her!!!

    I'm AMAZED Sugarwafer didn't swipe at her. If it had been Dad, he would have had him for lunch.

    Love you bunches,

  2. Even though the baby slept from 10 til 5, we didn't get the uninterrupted sleep that came with it. Our neighbor rang our doorbell at 1 in the morning to let us know that someone was snooping around her house. At the same time that all of that was going on the cops were at the corner house for a domestic dispute that Heather could hear before the doorbell rang. We think the prowler was someone that our neighbors knew and might have been one of the son's friends trying to wake him up to sneak out or something. One night in the near future we will get continuous sleep and I will finally feel rested in the morning when the alarm demands that I get up.
