It looks like the blog is all mine today, which means that I can talk about whatever I want.
So, um. Here is a picture of the sprout.
Dr. Mrs. Dr. F. Jr. (DMDFII) has picked up three habits that have me very worried. One, she wakes up routinely around 3:30 these days. We can get long blocks of sleep if we work around it and she does not really much fuss or cry for attention. At weird hours she just is just wide awake and wants to check things out. Two, when she’s up DMDFII is a very active kid. At two and a half months she already rolls over, she has started repeating back basic noises and she LOVES attention and activity. Three, when she does get worked up holding her tight or comforting her does not do much, but she quiets right down when you hold her up to a window so she can see what is going on. Something about the outside world really fascinates her. It was the same with her bjorn carrier: once she was big enough to face forward she found the walks totally captivating.
To summarize, I have a hyper, nocturnal baby who is physically precocious and has a serious need to know what is happening outside the house. It should be a few weeks before she figures out how to work a doorknob.
At the moment we are thinking about investing in either 1) a walled compound, or 2) a corgi.
