Smiling, happy baby

The Lilliputian has been a total goofball today! She is laughing, singing, smiling, and playing. I REALLY like this baby! She has been cracking me up all day. We did have a small fit this morning but it was over soon. She let me pick her up and rock her through it so I feel like that is progress! I know it won't happen every time but it was nice to end the tantrum peacefully. After I rocked her for awhile she wanted to snuggle for about an hour and half. I was ready to go run errands but she had other plans. I think this is what people mean when they say "remain flexible" when you have kids. Things don't always go as you planned. It really is like having a mini-dictator (a very cute one, however!)

Since Todd has gone back to work, Lilli has regressed with him. She doesn't want much to do with him again and freaks out if I am not in sight. I know it is killing him to see her regress. I just wish he could take her for a walk or go to the park with her. She really can be a lot of fun and quite snuggly. On the selfish side of this scenario, it would be nice to have a few minutes of "me" time. Welcome to motherhood, right?!

I know this will all work out in time. I'm just a child of the instant gratification club. I want things to go perfectly RIGHT NOW! Like Scarlet O'Hara said, ". . . tomorrow is another day!" I know, very cheesy . . .
