i have been horrible about posting lately. i don’t know why. it seems like all my thoughts are all jummbled up in my head and when i try and put them to paper they just don’t come out right.
louise has been doing pretty good. our crib tent is still working and she hasn’t been able to get out of her crib since we put it up (phew). she has managed to take her sleep sack off a few times (more than a few) and a couple of those times her diaper as well. i asked for some advice on this and kristen over at hope in virginia gave us the best advice ever, to put the sleep sack on backwards, which has been working wonderfully. so far, she hasn’t figured out how to take it off when it is on this way.
as you know, my step-mom usually takes louise once a week, sadly, her mother passed away about a week ago and was in the hospital for a few weeks before that so she hasn’t been taking louise lately. big bummer for louise since my step-mom is AMAZING with her. when she has her, all of her attention is completely focused on just her ads she absolutely LOVES being with her. we have been to visit a couple of times but i know she is missing her time with linda. i feel so bad for her, i just can’t imagine losing my mother.
speaking of my mom, she was here last week, which was really nice. we didn’t do anything to exciting, we went for walks with louise, sat out in the backyard with her, we went shopping a couple of times and ate dinner together. like i said, nothing too exciting, but it’s always nice to have her around. from here she went to visit my sister in macedonia and will therefore be back in a couple of weeks for another short visit before she heads back home to montana. it will be nice to have her here again.
last weekend i went to see the movie bully with two of my friends. it was really good but also very sad to see that so many kids are being tormented without any intervention from the schools and their administrations. i remember being teased when i was in jr. high and it was absolutely awful. i hope that he movie helps to bring about some awareness.
the other day i was changing louise and she didn’t want me to put her diaper back on, so i left it off (until she peed on the floor), she tried to pull her pants up but didn’t do a very good job, this was the result:
