Reminiscing ruminations

   My little dear daughter has been giving me some T-R-O-U-B-L-E for a couple days. She sure is testing her limits and all that terrible-twos jazz. And night times have been H-E-L-L. Yes, that's the second time I've done the spell-it-out-with-hyphens-to-emphasize-the-word thing in the same paragraph. So shoot me, I'm tired. Anyway, back to night time. Maylee has been wanting me to pick her up and snuggle her (those are her words..."Can I have a snuggle?") multiple times in the middle of the night. I usually do it the first time, and then try to put my foot down if she does it again. Well, for a couple nights now, when I tell her I'm not going to pick her up (I lean over the side of the crib and hold her while she's still standing up), she has gotten VERY mad! I've never heard her scream like she did on one particular night...ever. Whew. So after a couple of really bad nights, I've decided to pick her up when she feels like she needs me to for the next two weeks. I'm hoping that the need to be snuggled constantly kinds of goes away a little. Fingers crossed.

   All this attitude has got me thinking lately about how much she's grown up. I decided to scrap a page with my all-time favorite picture of Maylee. These pics were taken the day she turned one week old.

   I'm off for now. Love to all...


  1. Aww.. always a sweetheart. Even when she's screaming I'll bet.:) How can you resist not giving a snuggle? I know I couldn't. Shaun will get into trouble and he'll cry for a little bit. Five minutes later he comes out wiping his little tears saying,"Mommy, I'm sorry I'm mad at you." lol

  2. awwww oh boy. I just have to say good luck! Thankfully for us right now, whenever K wakes up in the night she just wants to go back to sleep but I am not looking forward to those terrible 2's... though I wonder if they've already started...
