These days I feel like if I blink I’m going to miss some monumental change in Beatrice. One day she can wear a dirty diaper all day and not make a fuss, the next day she discovers the difference between wet and dry wants the wet one off NOW. She’s more chatty and smiley today than yesterday, and tomorrow I’ll be amazed at her progress once again.
Progress isn’t always for the best though - this afternoon our normally good traveler decided that three hours in the car seat was 45 minutes too long and yelled the rest of the time. I hope this isn’t going to be a normal thing.
She changed quickly during her first 6 weeks with us, but these last seven weeks have been crazy. It really sucks that in the US parents have to go back to work just when things are getting really exciting and their baby isn’t just a eating/sleeping machine… and it really REALLY sucks when you’re the mom and you haven’t experienced your daughter’s belly laugh yet because you’re at work in the morning when she’s the happiest. Sigh.
