Well, we are back from our adventure to the in-laws, and ready to get back to normal.
DANG it is so much harder to travel with a little one. Emerson did fabulous in the car on the way there and back, but the little thing just does not want to sleep in her moses basket anymore, and I can't blame her- she's used to her crib; why would she want to be crammed into a little basket anymore?
It's time to retire it... which is a teensy bit sad for me, because I know it's time for the next growing up stage (which is exciting too).
I took her for her 4 month check up (although she is nearly 5 months) and think we got the whole eating problem thing settled- it is reflux (like I thought it was). Eating should be getting a lot easier for her now that we know what to do. :)
She had her shots today too- which I abhor doing. She sounds so heartbroken when they poke her. Funny little thing though: she is the darndest smiliest baby I've ever seen (and loads of people comment on that too- it's not just biased mommy complex!). She was sobbing her little heart out, and I'm trying to check out, and a nice lady is talking to Em. My little girl stops crying for a minute to give the lady one of her dazzling smiles... then goes back to crying.
What a little silly.
The week ahead:
I've got the week ahead of me with not a whole lot planned... which is really nice. Probably going to help my friend/aunt Ginger paint her living room today (I just love to paint- I don't know why- it's just a satisfying feeling to me!), then Grams and Mom are coming up tomorrow to do some scrapbook shopping at the most awesome scrapbooking store Scrap Etc.
Plan to hang out with a playdate later in the week... other than that, just stay home and get the place whipped into shape (how does a house get so messy when you're out of town for a few days??!!)
