Pre-Walking Crankys

Baby B took like, five steps in row last night. It's a record so far since she's mostly been taking one step then sitting down to crawl. I think this is a pretty good indication that real actual walking is right around the corner. And if I recall correctly Miss A was a BEAR around that time in her development. Such seems to be the case with B. Brother! My usually content baby has been whining and crying almost constantly and if I walk away from her she definitely freaks out. Not conducive to getting much done around here. In addition to her pre-walking I think I'm pre-menstrual because W-O-W, I have NO patience. (Although who knows in this world of breastfeeding and totally irregular periods. yay.) Yesterday morning I was literally ready to tear my hair out. Miss A was whining, the baby was whining and clinging to my leg. (I was trying to shake her off like a pesky insect.) PERSONAL SPACE CHILDREN!!!

B is still sleeping for crap. At least I'm getting 4-5 hours in a row but usually between the hours of 3-8 AM. Somehow that's not doing it for me. And the fact that I can't get a decent sleep also feels like an invasion of my personal space which makes me less patience during the day. I am getting by. Barely.

A funny Miss A story. Today she was playing the piano. After completing her made up tune she announced that it by Lucas Gooda, a little girl who has a piano and played that song. Hmmm... I have no idea where that came from, really. But I was highly entertained by it. I hope she continues to play compositions by her "imagination friends".

Omigod, Eliza used to get IMPOSSIBLE every time she was about to learn to do something new. It's like she'd figured out there was this new cool thing and she was mad because she couldn't do it yet.

Also, I don't know if you buy the whole sleep regression theory that's out there, but according to this line of thinking, kid's sleep also goes to H-E-double-hockey-sticks around the time of these developmental leaps.

All of which does not make you feel less sleep-deprived and cranky, I am sure, but I am crossing my fingers for you that everyone settles the heck down soon and you get some sanity back. (Although I had to laugh about the mental image of you shaking Miss A off your leg. I feel ya, dude.)
