Yesterday morning, Lola woke up from an early morning nap (too early). I was in the middle of something, so I asked the boys to go get their sister. I continued with my task while the boys were suspiciously going up and down the stairs with arm-loads of ‘stuff.’ I figured everything was fine as long as there was no crying. When I finally finished, I headed up the stairs to see what was going on.
Levi and Luke had spread blankets all over the floor, set up an elaborate play area with their playmobil, and set Lola in a pillow throne to watch and be entertained by their play. Did I mention that they live for loving on Lola? Awesome.
I’m loving the four-letter L words. Levi, Luke, Leif, Lola, Life, Love. Yep. That’s as good as it gets.
In other Lola news: She’s 6 1/2 months. That just slays me. She is sitting well on her own. She grabs at toys (and puts them straight in her mouth). She puts her arms out when I go to pick her up. She adores her Daddy and boys. She is very observant of all that goes on around her. She loves attention. She loves to be loved on. She is extremely good-natured. Oh, and she LOVES the warm-water swimming pool!
On the not-so-great side: eating solids isn’t going so well. And she doesn’t sleep any more. Seriously. Not during the day. Not at night. How did that happen? She used to sleep more than any baby I knew. I’m tired.
In other, other news: Russ started a new job this week. After 6 (1/2) months of being off/working from home/flexible (chaotic) schedule, this is going to be a huge adjustment for all of us. We have been SO BLESSED to have him around so much for this time, and blessed that he found a new job in this rough economy.
I’m still planning on starting the Whole30 food challenge next Friday. I’d start earlier, but I have THREE food-related events next week. I’d rather not sabotage myself right out of the gate. I’ll post more about this in a few days.
Hmmm. What else? I think that is all for now. Any general questions for me? Anything going on in your life you’d like to share? I’m feeling chatty today. Maybe it is the lack of sleep. Or creative procrastination…
