It's been a struggle.

We're trying to ease in solids.

I tried to feed Emily some rice cereal today.
(which she has eaten before, and liked for that matter...)


I was more than a little frustrated, so I let her sit in her fresh vomit puddle a bit while I took a minute for myself before the inevitable bath I would be giving her.

I called my sister.


It's her little one's birthday, and I called to wish him one. You know, by telling his mom?
Well, it didn't take long to turn into me whining about how Emily won't sleep through the night anymore, and how she puked and won't eat solids, or a bottle for that matter, which means Kirby can't really even feed her. It's all me. Which is mostly only frustrating when she's waking up every 2 1/2 hours during the night.

And then--

I smelled poop.


Did I mention that inevitable bath?

Sometimes a mom's best weapon to defend her sanity is a sense of humor.

Awww... Isn't she cuuuute? 
And no. I did not take these today, and no she did not have her bath in the sink today. 
Too messy for that!

Oh how I remember those days! Then they grow up and have bigger mess and I agree the only thing you can do is laugh.

Out both ends, yikes! And aren't sisters/moms amazing?? There is just something about talking with someone who has absolutely been there before. And yeah, it is incredibly frustrating to be the only one getting up that often. Tom told me the other day that he didn't get up once when Allie was a newborn...gee, thanks! It's just the way it goes sometimes.

But things will get better and now you have a new stain (er, badge) of mommy-hood. Good luck this week!

<3 Any time Lo, any time. You've done the same for me lots n' lots. How're solids going for you since we talked last? I can't believe how big Emily is!! Mom says the webcam is up and running so we'll have to skype you soon!
