So, over the past few weeks I have noticed that my little girl is working me. She's figured out she's the boss. Remember this post where I talked about what a push over I am? Yeah....well......she knows it too.
Little Miss Smarty Pants has figured out how to get attention. She has discovered that I will come running when she cries. She doesn't cry because she needs anything. She is crying because she wants attention. You know how I can tell? Because she stops crying when she sees me and gives the biggest grin. And I only encourage this behavior when I smile back at her. I mean, how could I not? Her smiles are infectious.
Her new discovery has made bed time especially hard this week. Ugh. Great. She gets totally pissed when I put her in her crib, say good night and leave the room. That when the tears start flowing......or shall I say fake tears. I am doing my best to be strong and let her figure out how to soothe herself without me looming over her crib. I am fearful that if I don't bed time will become a nightmare. I keep having flashbacks of those kids on Super Nanny who become a total PITA at bedtime. I DO NOT want one of those kids!
I guess this means that I am going to have my hands full from here on out. And with a smile like hers, one day she is going to break some boys heart!
Anyway, here are some pics I took of her the other day. She is such a happy little baby....
