Ava getting her nails filed

Sometimes I don't think it is such a good idea for Ava to get so much time with the grandparents.

Long Shitty Fucking Day


Funny Sign


I scream, therefore I am.


Ava had a nightmare that had her screaming for HOURS. After that, she was very very needy. I cannot pee, drink water or use the computer without holding her. Otherwise I get the screams. The blood curdling, dog is so scared she is taking a dump screams. Yes my baby screamed so badly the dog took a dump on the floor.

Of course, she goes the Grandma Karen's and is absolutely charming.

Oh Oh


Ava has decided to start standing on her own


Why she decided to do this I have no idea.


Perhaps she will be walking tomorrow?


These are her Santa Jammies. I bought these for her before she was born because they were a bargain. I know it is too warm for them, but she keeps kicking off her covers and getting cold so I decided to put them on. She is cute in them. BUT WHEN IS SHE EVER UNCUTE?

I see France.


Ava was using the swing wrong.

Jay Parkinson

I have had a nightmare of a day dealing with the Medicaid office. I hate uneducated people with poor diction and syntax who tell me what I need.

I wish Jay Parkinson was in our neighborhood. Here is an article from the Wall Street Journal. Cheers to him. I hope that his way of doing medicine is the way of the future.

To tug at Yohboh's heartstrings...


I was wondering ...


Where is my Daddy?


I am so over Mama. I want my Daddy!



Can you believe that he would leave...


such cuteness?


Mama said I had to wait. Waiting is bullshit.

Tired

Mothering is tiring work!

But the baby is still REALLY CUTE.

Ava is a fashionista...

The last six seconds are the payoff.

More on the poop

Ava has pooped FOUR times in the last 24 hours.

I am so channeling my mom right now.

Ava pooped twice

Since the introduction of the sippy cup, Ava has pooped twice.

WATER IS IMPORTANT for the poops.

Introducing the Sippy Cup


Hey Y'all!


I was thinking....


I am so over Mama giving me water. I want to drink it BY MYSELF!


So I did!


I am an independent girl! HOLLA!

Why My Mother Drives me Crazy

  1. She lies.
  2. She tells me what a terrible parent, daughter, child I was or am.
  3. She brings me things that I do not need or want. When I tell her that I did not need or want these things, see #2.
  4. She brings me another blanket. When I tell her that I do not need another freaking blanket, see #2.
  5. She uses a lot of dishes in the three hours that she is here.
  6. She uses a lot of towels in the three hours that she is here.
  7. She keeps telling me the baby is hungry. I KNOW WHEN MY BABY IS HUNGRY.
  8. She brings up these terrible things I did in the SEVENTIES. I am sorry I told you I hated you in 1975. But then again I could not wipe my own ass in 1975, so how accountable am I really?
  9. She keeps telling me that I am not losing the pregnancy weight fast enough.
  10. She overfeeds the baby and does not give her enough water so she is constipated. When confronted with her not giving any water, see #1.

How I woke up this morning

I woke up with Ava putting her sweet little hand in my left eye socket, trying to rip my eye out in a playful and curious way.

And Yohboh wonders why I woke up pissy.

Four Times

Ava pooped four times. Yohboh cleaned it out three times because the new human poop does not bother him as much as me. There was a bit of blood in the poop. I figure it is because she had not pooped in so long that there was a lot to push out.


In the Laundry Basket


Sitting up in the sink so Mama can wash her pooped bottom.


Ava fell asleep playing.


My little crew

Tootsie Roll Consistency

For those who do not know me, I am obsessed with poop. As in, not pooping is unhealthy. Not only for myself but my daughter. Yohboh poops like clockwork so I do not worry about his poop.

Ava had not pooped in nine days. That is one, two. three, four, five, six, seven, eight, NINE. I was getting worried at that number and I had intended to take her to the doctor today. Well she sensed this impending visit to that hateful place and released a substance, to quote from yohboh "It was a Tootsie Roll Consistency" from her bowels.

I think Tootsie Roll Consistency is a good band name.

THANK YOU CLEVELAND! WE ARE TOOTSIE ROLL CONSISTENCY! GOOD NIGHT!

Ava crawling around

Ava is mobile now. This means I will be much more tired than I already am.




This was my dinner raw. It was DELICIOUS cooked.


Ava is standing almost on her own.

Not a spring chicken

So if you cannot tell by my last post, yohboh and I went out to dinner. We had delicious martinis, yummy veal and also went to the Chocolate Bar for dessert.

I have to tell you, most nights I put the baby to bed and am out so this was a delightful change of pace. But on the other hand, I am seriously dragging today. I remember being able to get up and GO after a much wilder night that the one I had last night but I guess old age catches up to you.

Milestones

Ava says Mama and Dada indiscriminately.

She crawls.

She can grab you and kiss you.

She says MMMMM after she eats a spoonful of food.

She has the best smile.

Her two top teeth are coming in.


Tasty Mexican for lunch


Ava had no Mexican for lunch
