a couple of firsts for a an opinionated little girl

Alexandra is very opinionated and she makes a point of letting you know she's not happy about something. 
She grunts. She grunts and grunts. 
I already wrote about how she grunted her way from tummy to back last week. 
She doesn't appreciate staying on one position for too long. She's also very strong. She'll be sitting in a couple of weeks. 
Last night, November 17, she was not happy being on her tummy, so she was holding herself up with her arms and lifting her head. I thought babies were supposed to take months to do that. 
But then she also thinks it's okay to move my boob around with her mouth. Grunting. And if I pull her too close she pushes me. 
Mom calls her little truck going uphill. I just mock her. 
Meanwhile she grunts everytime things aren't going her way. 

I just make fun of her. Just like I make fun of her wobble  head. But as of last night, she's started holding her head. Wobble head won't last long. 

Dean and I are in so much trouble if she keeps this pattern of grunting and wining and doing things her way. 

Last night while nursing she grunted and moved her arms as if giving out a speech. I was wondering if she was angry bc I didn't have a lot of milk or what the hell she was doing. Maybe she's not happy when I talk. 

Moving away from Alexandra to Dean. He scared the crap out of me yesterday. He made a darth Vader voice in the baby monitor. 
We are all in the living room. Baby piece and parent piece on the kitchen counter. He turns both pieces on so they make that awful microphonia noise and starts darth Vader. 
I freaked out - really. I had no idea what to think. Not the foggiest idea!!!!  ... Until I saw him laughing. That freak!!!! 

If Alexandra learns quickly, between the 3 of us, Dean , Alexandra and I, we will drive each other insane. We will make an evil bunch. 

I know she took after me on a few things. She's a whiner like me. And squealer. What else will she take from me?
Oh she lives to eat. I guess that's normal for her age. But she wants to eat everytime she knows I'm around. She's just like me. I see food or smell food - I want to eat food. 

Last Friday I gave her her second bath. She acted confused. As if wondering - what now?!

Cloth diapering has been going well. Between that and breastfeeding we are saving so much money!!!
I hope Alexandra gets that from us. We are not cheap - we are frugal. ... Well, sometimes I am cheap. I used to be much worse. I've learned a few things. There are things that are worth the money. Others aren't. Live and learn. I'm still the numbers girl. Dean chooses what to spend money on and I tell him wether we can afford it or not. 

A couple of firsts last Sunday. First trip to Yankee candle and first time following someone with her eyes. My mom. 

It must be pretty incredible to figure out that you can focus on things with your eyes. Being a baby is quite an adventure. 

We went out towards Yankee Candle to buy my moms car and also took a trip to Sakura. Alexandra's first trip to a Japanese restaurant. 

Oh, last Sunday we also discovered that she has already outgrown one of her first outfits which was in her going out bag. So bittersweet. And we are still trying to learn how to leave the house on time.
