February: 15 months

You may have noticed the lack of material that I have been posting. My little munchkin has a grip of teeth all trying to push in at once. Two top molars, two bottom molars, the top k-9 teeth, and two bottom front ones to name a few. This has made for some long days for the both of us. Not all of them are awful, they take turns on which days they want to bug her. But yeah... my poor little girl is drooly, bitey, chewy, emotional, needy, frustrated, temperamental, and nothing I do can really help at the moment. She wakes up whining, whines all day, and has trouble sleeping at night. I end most of my days with a migraine, and want nothing more than a cool dark room with the only sound being the melodic rhythm of my ceiling fan. Being on the computer is usually out of the question, the phone is tolerated for brief periods, and sometimes she is so miserable that she doesn't even want company over... which is totally out of her norm because she is a social butterfly, loves everyone who looks her way, those who don't are a challenge, and crowds are fascinating. I feel really bad for her, and I am absolutely amazed at how much patience I have. On the flip side, she has really become quite cuddly. A lot of times the only thing that makes her happy is snuggling up on me on the couch and watching cartoons, and it makes me so happy that I have the opportunity to be a stay at home Mom and be there for her when she is so miserable.

When she is happy she spends her day chasing Mr. Kitty around the house, "helping" me do the household chores, hiding her toys in random spots in the house, and climbing. The other day she climbed right out of her crib when she was supposed to be napping. I came in to find her hugging the rail of the crib and crying. We were able to lower to the lowest setting, which was only one step down and I hope that will contain her for a while. I don't think it will be an easy transition to the toddler bed, but I could be wrong. She has also taken a liking to purses or anything that has a strap to carry it around like a purse. So cute and girly of her. She also likes the fact that you can put things in and take things out of a purse, it is an amazing feature, quite possibly the second best part. Oh yeah, jumping and standing on our heads is also a great game. She has really developed a big sense of humor too. She cracks up at pretty much anything, the little party blowers that I had at her first birthday are a real doozy... we didn't like them at all at 12 months but at 15 months they are hilarious.
