The pacifier is amazing

What is so magical about them??

How do they make a super cranky baby totally relaxed and calm?!

It boggles the mind.



I have a giant baby

Posted in BABY, Uncategorized with tags , on November 28, 2012 by Running Around America


My giant baby is huge!  And eating a lot.  She decided to become super frustrated with the world for about two months now, but, WE HAVE REACHED A TURNING POINT.  She now will take a pacifier again, and is happy as a clam.  THANK GOODNESS.  Listening to an adorable baby whine all day can be quite taxing.


In other news, my semester is almost over so I soon will have time to do things that don’t involve the law.  I hope.  I think.  I think Bigbaby will look forward to having an unoccupied mum.  She really loves it when I’m doing my reading on the computer and letting her “play” with the mouse.  She thinks it’s a brilliant use of multi-tasking.

If you have wondered where I am

Look up four month sleep regression. My easy going happy baby that sleeps through the night has turned into a major non-sleeping crank pot. Who hates life. And naps. And bedtime. Yayyyyyyyy


Guess who is not sick?

Having a stomach flu is made a little easier when this little person is constantly smiling.

I want to murder people who get in accidents that block the highway and make me sit in traffic for TWO HOURS.

I am not moving!!!!


This day was lame

Today on my way out of the big city for a smaller city, Tinyperson and I got stuck in LITERALLY two hours of traffic. At 7:30 am, in reverse rush hour traffic. Because the city thought bringing a two lane interchange to one lane, at a major intersection with another popular highway was a good idea. THEY COULD HAVE RUN IT BY ME FIRST.

So we were in the car and Tinyperson was absolutely going crazy, and then my gas light went off! Not knowing how far and long the traffic jam was, I had to get off the highway in a super sketchy area, and JUST BARELY found a gas station. What I didn’t find was my sanity.

I turned that car right around and went on home. And got stuck in more traffic. The morning was filled with so much awesome it is hard to quantify.

Oh Tuesday. Not impressed.


I don’t believe it

Daycare said Tinyperson cried alllll day.

Does this look like the face of someone who cries all day? Methinks not.


It looks like the face of an international I AM AWESOME AT GRABBING MY FEET superstar. Obviously.


She probably was just crying because she learned that with great power comes great responsibility.
