Daisy at 9 months

Daisy is a girl who knows what she wants and works hard to make sure she gets it.

For example:

She learned to roll over before she was four months old by trying it out one day and then practicing it at least a hundred more times that day.

When I put her in her bed on her back, she always immediately rolls to her stomach as fast as she can, tucks her arms under her, and sticks her bum in the air. Every single time.

In the bath tub she LOVES laying on her back. If we try to sit her up or stand her up to wash her, she arches her back until we let her lay down again.

The past few weeks she has been waking up twice a night and I've just been feeding her to get her to go back to sleep. Last night I decided I'd had enough so we checked her diaper, gave her some pain killer for the teething pain, offered her a sippy cup of water, and put her back in bed. I thought she'd cry for 5 minutes and go back to sleep, but that girl knows what she wants! And she didn't want to go back to sleep without nursing. After about half an hour of listening to her sob (and hoping that our neighbors wouldn't hate us), I finally gave in and fed her, after which she went right back to sleep.

But despite the fact that she drives us nuts by not sleeping through the night, we love our sweet little girl. She is crawling, walking along furniture, and saying mama and baba. She loves playing with Calvin too, which is fun to watch. And as always, she is great at smiling.

She is so cute!! Sam used to love laying down in the bath and now he turns around as fast as he can to sit up. Sorry I'm always inserting something about Sam...being close in age, they just have a lot in common. Can't wait to get them together. And hear you on the listening to them sob, hoping the neighbors don't hate you, and finally feeding.

This hairdo reminded me of Pebbles on the Flintstones. But Daisy is much cuter!
