things that go bump in the night

...or in the afternoon.

Monday was a tough day for the wee one. She woke up cranky, which is completely unlike her. I could tell immediately that she wasn't feeling 100%. Fast forward to morning nap time. She took her diaper off in her crib again and peed. Then she tried to go to sleep, but her bed was all wet and cold with pee. I went to check on her and felt so sad for her. So, no morning nap. The middle of the day went okay, and she took a really good afternoon nap. When she woke up, we played in her room. We love to play. What we do not love? Smacking her little face into the edge of her bookcase, which, of course, she did. She screamed like you'd cut off one of her limbs. It was pitiful. I thought she'd have a bruise, but she woke up yesterday without one. She does, however, have a mosquito bite on her face. It's really fantastic. Needless to say, Monday wasn't fabulous.

Tuesday was better, however. I made sushi for the first time, and I was really pleased. I also made a little fleece jumper for S, but it's still too hot to wear despite the fact that the original plan was for her to wear it to the Homecoming parade in DC Friday. It's orange and it has a football on it. I'll post a picture soon, but for now, the camera battery is charging, and I don't have the energy to deal with it. My brother also came to visit yesterday, which was nice, and he's riding to DC with us today.Which means...S and I are out of pocket until at least Sunday. She is going to experience her first DC Homecoming, even though she won't be able to go to the football game because it's past her bedtime. I think she'll live. Have a great rest of the week, peeps.

i just got back from michigan, so i hadn't read your blog in a while. i just love your blog.
first, i can't believe that S is taking her diapers off! hopefully she gets over that quick. it does give me quite a good chuckle reading about it though. second, i've been wanting to make sushi, i'm excited that you tried it. where did you get the seaweed part? i think i might give it a whirl.
third, 'lijah hasn't been the same since S's huge smooch. i don't know about this, we might not be able to have play dates anymore if your little S can't keep her hands off of him.

That's admirable--I have made sushi and it's sticky and laborious, but mighty tasty in the end! Enjoy the weekend and I love the drooly little picture of S. Glad she's no worse for the wear.
