You won’t find Miss A sans binky. Especially when she’s falling asleep. She has it in her mouth so much she sucks the air when it’s not in her mouth. I have a feeling breaking her from binky-hood might cause issues later.
Last night, I had a killer migraine and it made me nauseous. I took some knock off Excedrin (according to my mother, and probably news reports that I didn’t read, it had been recalled. We found this out a day later,after Alex went to two gas stations and a Walgreens…) I went to bed at 8:45, and Alex said he’d take care of the baby routine. Bath, lotion, bed. After about an hour, I heard Aurora crying quite vigorously in the next room. I waited about 5 minutes, and when it didn’t abate, I came out to see what was the matter. She has been starting a habit recently, where out of absolute no-where, she’ll start to cry – and loudly. Then almost as quickly as it came, it stops, and all is well with the world. It’s rare, but when it happens it’s random and thankfully has only happened in public once. (Sorry, Applebees. Ever had a hysterical baby in a bathroom? Boy, what an echo!). Last night was one of those nights. Alex tends to lose patience when she’s crying and there is no known reason. I picked her up and rocked her, and thankfully she calmed down after a few minutes. It made me feel pretty good, because I can’t make her laugh or smile like Alex can. It turns out I’m not completely chopped liver.
Yep, motherhood can have it’s benefits.
Like having a sleeping baby lie on your chest. THAT is what it’s all about.
