New developments

This is not really a new new development, but I feel like it needs to be remarked upon here. When Bear wakes up now, she is almost always sitting up in her crib. It is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. This may not seem amazing to those without child, or maybe not even to those with, but to me, it’s pretty amazeballs. [Thanks Guiliana Rancic for putting that word into my vocabulary. I can’t say I love it, but it has stuck.] It’s just incredible to me to think that a person would wake up and then sit up and start babbling. Though I suppose, why not? She obviously can’t get up yet, like the rest of us, so I guess this makes the most sense. Still, it’s a sight to behold.

Want to hear something even crazier? Of course you do. This morning, at 3 am, Bear woke up. I looked at the video monitor (a contender for best invention ever) and she was sitting up, half-babbling, half-moaning. Ugh. It was my night. She never does this anymore! Or, rather, she rarely does it and the last time she did she was way sick. I went upstairs. AO offered to change her (thank you) and I got a bottle. I fed her and she was smiley and happy and adorbs the whole time. When she finished the bottle, she just turned in my arm and appeared to be ready to go back to sleep. I put her down. She cried. She sat up. I told AO I think she’s just being weird. He thought she was still hungry. AO fed her another bottle. He put her down. She cried. She sat up. Then something very weird happened. And I know this because of the wonder of the video monitor. She stopped crying, babbled only occasionally, but continued to sit up and play with her hands. For awhile. I mean, a while. I dozed in and out of sleep as she did this. Then, at some point, she put herself down and back to sleep. People! Are you listening? She put herself down and back to sleep! She’s amazeballs, don’t you think?

My little baby is growing up.
