The Entertainer

Hello everyone!  It's been awhile since I written anything. We've been kind of busy.  Life has turned into a wonderful roller coaster and the house is upside down.  We have toys and Cheerios everywhere.  Not to mention the infamous "Baby Mummums"!  It's been a great time of "firsts" for Olivia and as a family since we came back.  Today was the first day that I stayed with Olivia on my own (well not really, Martin was there for part of the morning).  This is how the day went...

3:00am - Woke up to her laughing and clapping of hands.  She came out of some nice dream. hahahah  And when I looked down to see if I should pick her up, there was no way she was going to go back to sleep. So I just let her sing and play until she got bored and I picked her up.  Daddy woke up too.  We went downstairs to get a bottle ready and we had a quiet moment.

5:00-5:45 - Nap (Ugh...I was sooo tired)

6:00 - Breakfast and Play (with mommy lying down on the floor).  We put Olivia in the Jolly Jumper and Daddy did his computrainer.

9:00-9:45 - Nap (Yesterday, it lasted till 1pm!)

Snack, Lunch

2:45 - 3:45 - Nap (just becuase we went outside for a walk and she fell asleep in the Beco)

Snack, Dinner (which she fell asleep while we were feeding her).

6:45pm - Bedtime  (Ya, she'll wake up in the middle of the night starving)

All through the day, Olivia has continued to put a smile on our faces.  She laughs, she screams, and she cries, but she constantly amuses us with her fascination with everything. She bops when she play with her toys that makes music.  With the walker, she's zipping around corners. She's a "happy-go-lucky" spirit and it's soo entertaining.

Then I wonder....

We are totally exhausted too.  How much entertaining are we doing?  Today I've bounced around, screamed and made silly noises with my voices and body.  I've zipped around corners and play games. I've sung dozens of songs to her while changing her diapers, feeding, and playing with her.

Now...who's the entertainer?
