Besides her lack of sleeping she is great. She is talking like a champ. Uses full sentences pretty much how real people talk. Sometimes it just cracks me up to see these big words and full sentences come out of her mouth. It's amazing how fast it went from little 3 words to just full normal sentences. I've been trying to teach her the alphabet and while she knows letters here and there I feel like she has no interest which is frustrating. She got an easel for Christmas so everyday we write a new letter and throughout the day go over it. She just doesn't want to focus which I get, it's boring but I try to make it super fun and today I even used candy. I know its just a matter of repetition and actually having her focus on me.
It's been 20 minutes and she is still calling for me. I heard her go in her closet. Her new (and extremely strange) thing to do is put her silver little slip on shoes on in her bed and fall asleep in them. She has been doing this the last few days. We asked if her feet were cold and she said no and today she has tights on so I think its just a thing. Funny kid.
Contemplating taking a nap or finishing cleaning my house. My plans to meet my friend at the aquarium today got pushed back due to the rain so I decided it would be a good idea to scrub my house. I've spend the entire morning cleaning and doing laundry (in between playtime with Olive, a movie, and lunch) and it still looks dirty. What the hell?? I need a real get down on my hands and knees and scrub cleaning but that is not going to happen being all fat and pregnant. Olive is pretty patient with cleaning as long as I take breaks and play. I made the mistake of walking a bit too much yesterday and now my feet are swollen so big and my body needs a total massage. We met up with my friend to hike from her house to the Griffith Observatory. The walk was long but totally not too much except Olive insisted on being held pretty much the entire time. We couldn't bring a stroller since the last part is a actual hike up dirt and now that I look back I should have brought my ergo to use as a backpack. Total fail. Luckily Tamar being in amazing shape carried her a lot of the way there but on the way back Olive was tired and grumpy and only wanted me to carry her the WHOLE way. So ya my feet are paying for it today but so far I haven't gotten out of my slippers so I can't really complain.
