So we have had an interesting week here at our house. Well not super interesting, but trying on my patience. Shyler is a crazy crazy girl and some days she is a handful and others she is the sweetest ever. Yesterday was a harder day. I think some of it is because she is 1. little Miss Independent 2. She thinks she only needs one nap now, when she is a little in between that stage and 3. she is cutting a tooth, number 3 on the bottom and number 7 total. Last night we got to wake up at 1:45 and listen to her scream unless we were holding her. Eventually I caved and fed her, but that did not help, so after more screaming we caved even more and brought her into our bed to sleep. Well she thought that was more fun than anything, so Tim ended up sleeping on the couch so he could get some sleep and wake up for work, and Shyler and I eventually fell asleep on the bed. Turns out, if I would have thought about this, a little bit of Tylenol might have been helpful. You don't always think clearly at 3 in the morning.
So, to not make my child look like a complete monster, you should know that I do love her and she is pretty sweet. On Tuesday when I was babysitting Lindsey she was so nice. Lindsey's Grandma left and she was sad and started to cry. Shyler saw that and I said, "go get her a toy," so she went to her toy box and gave Lindsey her glow worm. It was so cute. I was worried that she would have a hard time with sharing because she used to not be so good at it, but it was so cute to watch her try and help Linsdey feel better. Shyler also loves other babies. She will walk over to any baby she sees and try to hug them. At church she loves to see Kirsten who shares her same birthday and they practically tackle each other and then they do laps around the church together during primary. Another fun and adorable time!
Here are some silly pictures of her and some of what yesterday was like
When I was at work last week she had a great time eating grapes and stuffing herself
She also loved making a new hair style up with her Au- natural grape hair gel
Yesterday she decided she needed to use the oven mitts when I was making dinner
Every time I got ready for a good shot she did this, charged after me and smiled as she tried to grab the camera
and then after she got bored with the oven mitts she wanted up. Poor girl, life is tough when you are short!
and then she was mad I wouldn't pick her up, don't worry I did.
