Friday night we joined the family for our traditional evening dinner out at the local restaurant. She did pretty well - she ate pretty well and really didn't fuss that much. She still gets a little nervous when people get in her face -- and I try to politely ask them to give her some space -- but sometimes youngsters don't understand that!
Saturday morning we had our first, umm "incident" we'll call it. T woke up kind of early and did her typical complain here and there and basically entertain herself in her crib for a bit. I am trying to keep her life on somewhat of a schedule - as most of you who have adopted kids from an orphanage can atest to -- they are hardwired to schedules! So I heard her playing a bit - which I figured meant that the bunnies and blanket would be on the floor when I went to get her. Well.... I was 1/2 right!
Bunnies and blanket WERE on the floor, along with pajamas AND poopy diaper. Apparently she didn't like sitting in a poopy diaper (who can blame her!), and decided she'd take it all off. Bonus was that the diaper landed "face" up on the floor, so I didn't have to clean up poop from her new rug. Un-bonus was you can imagine what the sheet (also torn 1/2 off), bumpers, MATTRESS, her body and the crib looked like. Yup. Thankfully I have been pulling the crib away from the wall a bit so I didn't have new wall "paint". After a bath, a major scrub down of the mattress and commencing of the laundry I could laugh. Welcome to motherhood!
She may have had an upset tummy yesterday - that or waking up in poop world set her off for the balance of the day because she was a little cranky here and there yesterday. She didn't nap well either. The weather got decent later in the day so we went for a walk to Gramma's house in the stroller which she LOVED. She's amazed at the world around her.
Today has been great. She woke up in a great mood - and has been laughing ever since. We went for a car ride to Meijer - NO tears at all, not even a single whine. She was great all through Meijer too. Hopefully this week will go smoothly as well!!
