Ah yes, the theme this week is that Lila is a-changin’. What worked a month ago, even a couple of weeks ago – just ain’t cuttin’ the mustard anymore. Seriously, just when C. and I thought this whole parenthood thing was easy, there goes Lila – shaking things up.
Q. How’s she shaking things up?
A. She’s changing her whole routine. When she once napped, she’s awake. When she once ate every 3 hours, sometimes it’s every 4, or every 2. When she once loved sitting up, she now wants to stand. (Slow your roll, Lila! You’re 3 months old!)
And, much to our chagrin – she no longer wants ANYTHING to do with a pacifier. What?! Huh?! You’re a BABY. Babies use pacifiers. Pacifiers stop crying. Help a sista out. PLEASE.take.your.pacifier. Nope, not my baby. She’d rather talk (she’s sooooo my kid) or suck on her hands.
Q. How are we coping with this?
A. Well, we’re just going with it. Lila’s the queen in this house. We’ll give her whatever she needs, so long as she’s not requesting cigarettes and vodka.
Q. How is the little Cupcake?
A. She’s stupendous. She really is a pleasure. While she’s not potty-trained yet, we’ve decided we’ll keep her around for a few more months even though it’s turned out that she’s quite a lot of work.
However, we’ve talked about it and it’s unanimous (between Craig and I.); neither Lila or Ferg really pull their own weight around here. I mean sure, Ferg pays us in, “High Fives” and licks us (ew), and yeah, Lila smiles and smooches us… but let’s be honest. That ain’t paying the bills. 🙂
Q. How’s parenting?
A. I’ve learned that I do everything faster these days. I talk fast, I wash dishes fast, I eat fast, I drink fast, I shower fast. However, I cannot speed Lila up. She refuses to do anything any quicker. Nope. It’s been quite a lesson. What? Do I want her to hurry up and eat so I can make that 9:00 a.m. conference call? HA. Fat chance. She’ll do it in her time. Ah, patience. I am slowly understanding the art of patience…
Q. What’s Lila up to these days?
A. She’s currently super in to jumping. Yep. We bought the Precious Planet Jumperoo from amazon (planned before the spending freeze) and let’s just say it’s Lila’s new workout and our new entertainment. She hearts it. Big time.
And here’s my favorite view: her stems.
Ok, onward to the pics.
