Is it bad that I laugh at everything Alexandra does? She grunts. A lot. All the time. When she doesn't like something she grunts. When she is trying to do something she grunts too.
Three days ago, November 9, I tried to get her out of her crib while she was asleep. She grunted.
That same night she was on the couch laying on her back. Well, she decided she wasn't going to be on her back anymore and grunted her way to her tummy. First she got
When she doesn't like the way I'm holding her on my boobs she grunts while adjusting her head - and pulling my nipple along.
When she tries to poop is the same thing. Well, first she gives a quick smile. Then she starts. Grunts and makes faces and contracts her whole body until you hear that pooping noise. Then she smiles again, victoriously.
Last night she was on her Moses, grunting and talking along, as if she was too busy trying to do something. Then all of a sudden I heard a EY! as if she had finally achieved her goal. I have no idea what that was about. I was so curious to see it. Regardless, I just cracked up in bed wondering what had led her to that scream.
Another funny thing is her smiling in her dream. I just got a video of that. She also talks in her sleep. Any guesses as to which side of the family she got that from?
Another funny thing about her is how she gets startled at random sounds. A loud thump of something falling won't bother her, but a loud kiss will. Or a sniffle. Or paper crinkling. Or anything random. Or a sound that previously hadn't startled her. She twitches and winces or just raises her arm in a surrendering motion. We got a video of that
She hiccups a lot. That's not funny. I feel really bad for her when she is hiccuping. It happens when she's cold or anxious. Yes, I do think little babies get anxious.
In my tummy she did hiccup a lot when I was anxious or upset. Needless to say a lot of her hiccups were bc of Jonathan and his leaving WHS. I think saying I was upset about J's leaving is an understatement. But hearing people say things and not knowing what to think about them was the worst. I wanted to go home and cry. I actually did. I cried at night after Dean was asleep bc I didn't want to make him upset. He already knew I wasn't taking J's leaving easily. He knew I was apprehensive about going back to work to a new principal while not knowing why the guy who hired me (and whom I trusted) up and left. Dean knew I was still upset even after having met the new guy. But there was nothing he could do to help me other than hold me while I cried. So he didn't have to know people's comments were getting to me. There was nothing he could do about it. It would only make him miserable for not being able to help me. And it was enough that just one of us was miserable. But Blobby knew it - and she got the hiccups while I cried in my pillow.
