Sleepless in Atlanta

It is nearly midnight and I can hear my sister pacing with the baby. She, the baby, is very squeaky tonight.

Is it a bad thing that I've nicknamed her Squeaky Fromme? Heh. Probably.

The weird crap that pops into my head. I suspect that this child, like my eldest, will be two years old before she knows her real name. Mo and I have a hundred nicknames for her each day.

I offered to pace with the squeakster tonight, but Mo said she has it under control.

I'll pace all night long and think nothing of it. I can sleep when I get home... Mo cannot.

So the pacing and squeaking continue upstairs... hopefully there will be sleep for the weary soon.

The little chupa lupa is so yummy, her little fuzzy head the size of an orange, her little cheerio lips, her sweet smell, her tiny sighs... but she is exhausting to her Mama.

I'm going to miss her.

I knew it. They are cute for a reason!!! It's so you won't leave them on a stranger's doorstep after they keep you up for seven nights straight ... or put Ritz crackers in the disk drive, or knock chips out of the tv screen with a spoon, or poke a tinker toy through a stereo speaker, or scatter powdered sugar over the whole dining room, or play pinata with the Christmas ornaments, or put the cat in the refrigerator, or ...

I am downloading pictures to post. Good lord, she is so yummy and... grunty. I don't think my babies were so grunty.

Peggy- Yes! I think we were pacing with her until 130AM, but oh she was so yummy. I had her in the middle of the bed, kissing her (she was so wide awake), playing with her little hands and toes, and then we'd walk some more. I can't get enough of her sweetness.

VW- Exactly, I got to sleep last night. :) It may have been late, but I slept!

Bou: Our daughter was a grunter. It only took one megablowout to learn what that meant.

She's working on a surprise for your sister. I think you got out just in the nick of time!
