Mini Magellan

Nora has figured out how to navigate the entire living room. I would say how she is moving is crawling, but it isn’t the tummy off the floor hands and knees type crawling just yet. She moves her arms and legs and wiggles around on her tummy. Sort of like she’s swimming. lol. She is just a bundle of complete energy. If you set her down anywhere that she is not strapped in she flips over onto her tummy and starts scooting away towards any number of new and dangerous things. lol. She’s also figured out how to navigate around things in her walker, and get through the child gates. lol. She’s basically just rams into them until they fall over. 

She’s also incredibly QUICK for such a tiny person. Or I’m just getting very old. lol. One or the other. It’s hard to keep up with her scooting, rolling, or crawling, and getting her dressed in the morning is also proving to be a new and unique challenge. lol. It started when she figured out how to take off her bibs after meals. Now she tries to take every stitch of clothing off I put on. She’s also figured out how to get out of her diapers. Luckily that only happens RIGHT after I put them on, or RIGHT before I take them off. I’m not looking forward to walking into her room in the morning and finding a soiled crib and naked baby. lol. It’s bound to happen sooner or later, and I’ve accepted this, but I’m not looking forward to it.

In other news, we had a fun day today. Kevin’s over time is back for the moment so he’s been working like crazy this past week. We were going to start moving this afternoon but decided to push it off until tomorrow. He needed a break from his crazy manual labor, which is completely understandable. We went out of town for a while and did some shopping. We found the absolute most ADORABLE purple sparkly Converse shoes for Nora. Again, if I could post a picture I would, but they are ultra cute. lol. And they were $8 which made them EVEN BETTER. I’m not cheap by any means, but come on. I’m not going to pay $30 for shoes that she will wear for a few months. She’s not even really walking yet. They’re basically just to complete her out fits. When she starts walking, yes I’ll pay more for comfort, I’m not going to make her suffer, but right now? No. lol. I don’t even pay $30 for my OWN shoes, why would I spend that much on shoes for her?? lol. 

Yes, I am SUCH A TERRIBLE PARENT. You know, buying her nutritious food instead of awesome shoes. Anyway… I need to get up and do dishes or something else productive. lol Until later Bloggies. 🙂
