|Aww, baby's first cold! Another milestone to add to the baby book!|
Fearing a similar scenario today (which CANNOT happen because today is new moms' group day - the one day I get to see other people, and I NEED Gracie to be semi-pleasant while we discuss Victoria Beckham's new collection) I laid Gracie down for her morning nap and was rewarded with a chorus of screams. And grunts. Gracie never screams when I lay her down, so I figured the suspiciously clean diapers of the past day and a half had something to do with the screams and the grunts, and swooped in with the Ovol. Having calmed her enough to coax some of the elixir down her gullet, I approached her with the eye dropper, and dropped some Ovol in her eye. Oh, that's not what an eye dropper is meant for? Whoops, silly me! Don't worry. Gracie reinforced that lesson with piercing screams the likes of which I look forward to hearing again next week when I take her for her immunizations. After exhausting herself with all of that screaming however, she's been sawing logs for a solid hour and a half so far. New moms' here we come!
*That's a total lie. It has not been quiet. Gracie has found her volume button, and her cute coos and babbling sounds have turned into shrieks. Not unhappy shrieks, just shrieks-for-the-sake-of-shrieking shrieks. Is this just a phase?!
