Babyhood: Week 44

Babyhood through the eyes of Krewson...

Wow I am so far behind on my weekly updates.  Eeek!!  Ok here's babyhood catch-up post #3.  (And now since I've waited so long, I have to do catch-up posts #4 and #5, too!  But those will probably come tomorrow or the next day.)  So here ya go...

Week 44 (December 31st through January 6th)

* This week I started doing the Indian noise with my hands.  I make an "aahhhh" noise and slap my hand to my face.  Usually I hit my mouth, but sometimes I hit myself in the nose or eye instead and then Daddy and Mommy laugh.  And sometimes I let them slap their hands over my mouth and I just make the "aahhhh" noise.  It's lots of fun.
* We stopped in Columbus for two nights on the way home from Indiana so Mommy could visit with her college friends.  While we were there, I got really sick.  My eyes were all red-rimmed, my nose was running everywhere, I had a fever, and I was super whiney and cryey.  Mommy and Daddy didn't know what to do.  I looked so bad that Mommy thought about taking me to urgent care, but then right after that my fever broke and I started acting better.  Daddy and Mommy were super relieved.
* My fits and temper tantrums continued into this week, until Mommy and Daddy laid the smack down.  (Translated: they quit giving me what I wanted all the time.)  It took a few days, but I eventually gave up and returned to acting like a somewhat decent human being.  I started sleeping through the night again, and I quit screaming over every little thing.  I think Mommy and Daddy were grateful to have the old Krewson back.
* I started LOVING the piano this week.  It became my new favorite toy.  Every time Daddy or Mommy put me on the floor, I'd crawl as fast as my little limbs would take me, straight into the piano room.  Then I'd pull myself up and go "clink! clink! clink!" on the keys with my fingers.  Sometimes Mommy or Uncle Danny will sit with me on the piano bench and play music, and I think it's pretty much the best thing ever.
* And since I kept crawling into the piano room, that meant I was also crawling into the Christmas tree room. With all the pretty ornaments.  And one time I pulled off an ornament and squeezed it and it broke and cut my hand a little.  I didn't really care, it didn't hurt that bad, but it upset Daddy and he even had to pull off pieces that were stuck to my hand.  He told Mommy afterwards, and she made sure to wash my hand real good with soapy water.  But like I said, it didn't hurt or bother me at all.  Mommy and Daddy just got all worried.  Silly overprotective parents.
* I've really slowed down on how much milk I drink now.  I like solid foods best.  Especially hot grown-up foods like pasta and mashed potatoes.  Mmmm mmm.  So now Mommy has to work at it to make sure I drink enough milk for my growing body.  I like to give her a challenge.
* Daddy and Mommy started getting excited about how smart (i.e. like a real person) I'm becoming.  Like that I will throw cars in my toy that spins, or unplug Daddy's computer and laugh.  I like to do lots of things on purpose now and it makes them happy.  (I guess I am pretty entertaining.)
* I figured out how to climb the stairs this week!  Man was I proud.  So now Mommy and Daddy have to be super careful to always put the baby gate up.  Because after the piano, the stairs are probably my favoritest thing.  (Have YOU tried climbing up the stairs lately?? Holy cow it's fun!)
* I turned 10 months old this week! Yay!  You can see my 10-month picture here.

They strapped me in my high chair seat at the piano so I could play without them holding me.

I like to play on Daddy's laptop with him.
