We had to change up the sleeping situation to accomodate the new tanning bed set up in Pearce's room (nursery) for a couple days. The bili bed lights brighten up the whole room -- in a lovely blueish purple ray. Luckily Jeremy can sleep with lights on, because I can barely sleep when the bathroom light is on with our door shut! so Jeremy bunked with Henry, and Pearce bunked with me. I told her we were having a special SLUMBER PARTY!! I was actually surprised that she took a nap fine the first day, and even slept fine through the night for 2 nights (with an exception on the first night her falling off of our tall bed onto hardwood floors, whoops!). But by the second day's naptime, it just wasn't gonna happen. I laid with her in bed for 2 hours, and there was no settling down, as you will see from the video below.
*Her favorite phrases right now are "just teasin' you" and "that's the deal, ok?"
*She has turned camera shy. Especially with video. I want to capture so many of the funny little things she does and says, so I'm learning I need to be sneaky, and the iphone works best hidden behind something.
*She is really sweet and funny and incredibly adoring to Henry....BUT she has also been the hardest part of having a newborn. She has also entered a 'pre-teen sassy' phase and tells me she doesn't like me anymore whenever she gets in trouble. Does the opposite of what you ask of her. And likes to kick or nudge my tummy knowing she's not suppose to.
*She actually asks me several times a day "Why you mad at me?" (I answer "I'm not.) Her reply, "Why you have a frowny face?"
*How long does this life changing "TRANSITION" (new baby) last?? I give her plenty of attention (hours upon hours while Henry is in light bed), and I promise I've been pretty patient with her. But she still acts up!!! What else am I suppose to do??
