Late night musings from a 5 month old

"Oh I feel good. I'm so cozy. Mommy gave me a bath tonight and we played all my favorite games. Like Peek a boo, and make bubbles and move my arms and legs as fast as I can and splash mommy's face! I love my bath! Now I'm in my bed. Daddy told me that it used to be his and mommy's bed, but he's just being silly. This is my bed that mommy sleeps in too. There is another bed in here called the bassinet, but I hate that bed and I SCREAM!!!!!!!! if they put me in it. Daddy sleeps in his bed which during the daytime we call the couch. But Daddy is on a bye bye trip and I haven't seen him in a while. Mommy says she is losing her mind. She's being silly. I'm in my warm jammies and now mommy is feeding me with her boobie and I'm feeling sleepy and I hope that tomorrow we play my favorite......


"I'm awake! It's very dark. It's night night time. I know I need to go back to sleep. Mommy's not here. That's ok, she'll be here later. But somethings wrong! What is it? Is there something squishy in my tushy? No. Is that Collin guy coming who yells 'HELLO BABY!' right in my face? No. I'm warm and cozy still. What is it? Wait! I hear something. Something sounds like....water. There is a little light from the door next to my bed. What is going.... Oh no. Mommy's in the bath! MOMMY'S IN THE BATH WITHOUT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She must have forgotten that baths are MINE! I take baths! I like to splash!!!! She must be confused. I will make some of my AAAAAA sounds to make her remember that baths are mine and that she forgot me. "AAAAAA!"

"Mommy didn't come! I must tell mommy I am here alone in my bed and NOT in the BATH!!!!

SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MORE SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh good. Here's mommy. She must be so happy to see me and remember that she forgot me. She looks funny in her white towel and her skin is all shiny. Happy smiles for mommy!

THE BINKY!?!?!?! HOW DARE SHE TRY TO GIVE ME THE BINKY AND NOT PICK ME UP!!!!!!!!!  I will now SCREAMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!


Oh. That's better. She's holding me away from her body. Silly mommy. She must be playing a game. Like last night when I decided I was not tired and she came in with shinny dark stuff on her finger nails and tried to get me back to sleep without picking me up. Ha ha! Mommy can be so funny! She kept blowing on her fingers and telling me to go to sleep. But I SCREAMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I woke up the next morning there was dark stuff all over her hands and boobie! Silly Mommy!

I see the bath!!!! We are going to take a bath! There are nice candles that I want to touch! Yay! Now get me undressed and......

THE BOUNCY SEAT?!?!?!?! HOW DARE SHE PUT ME IN THE BOUNCY SEAT!!!!!!!! AND NOW SHE IS IN THE BATH WITHOUT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where'd mommy go?

Silly Mommy. She put her head under the water. She must be playing peek a boo and then will put me in the bath with her.

There's mommy! What's she doing. Reading a book? A book with no pictures. She must have forgotten there are books with pictures and that she is supposed to put me in the bath. I will wiggle and grunt and show her how horrible this bouncy seat is.

Mommy's looking at me. She's isn't smiling. She is reaches up and sits me on a towel on the side of the bath. She must not remember that I am supposed to get into the water and.....

BOOBIES!!!!!!!!!!!!  I SEE BOOBIES!!!!!!!!!!!! I MUST BE SO HUNGRY! THERE ARE BOOBIES AND THAT MEANS I MUST EAT RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT! MOMMEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Mommy makes that silly mommy sound when takes a deep breath and blows it all out at the same time. That's her sound that means I win!

Mommy gets out of my bathtub and puts on her pink robe that makes her look like a bunny.

Oh I feel good. I'm wrapped in a soft blanket and Mommy and I are in the rocky chair. Mommy put her boobie in my mouth, but I remembered that I just ate at bedtime! I'm not hungry! Silly mommy.

What's that?!? Someone is opening the door.

DADDY!!!!!!! DADDY'S HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BIG SMILE FOR DADDY!

Daddy looks confused. He asks me why I'm still awake. Silly Daddy.

Mommy gives me to Daddy. She says "Your turn".

HI DADDY! You must have missed me soooooo much!!!!!!!!! Look you are wearing my favorite shirt. I will drool all over it so that you know how much I missed you! We will have so much fun!!!!!!

I forget every time that eventually they will start sleeping. That's what will make you crazy, believing that they never actually will sleep well. Keep telling yourself that they will eventually sleep well, probably not as soon as you would like, but sooner than you fear (which is never). She is super cute!

HA! That's a smart little girl you have there! She knows life is all about her.

Ha ha ha ha! My 7-month-old son must think very, very similarly. Tried the cosleeper last night and it's like he just KNEW, even while fast asleep, that it was NOT my bed and immediately screamed.

Too funny!! I have a 3.5 year old, 15 month old and am 32 weeks pregnant with my third and attempted to take a bath the other day and my 3.5 year old was screaming - so I jumped (well as fast as my belly and I could) and went running into her room thinking she was hurt but no. Her baby doll just needed to go potty. Of course baby doll did...at 10:30 PM at night. I think they have a relaxation-disrupter-tracker on them that lets them know when we are trying to chill out! Oh well! Makes for good blog posts I suppose!? :)
