Our Real Life.

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

At this very moment, I'm on my phone in a hot bath, because I just need some time. You're teething, and having a tough week.

You have decided to boycott naps -- yes, you! Our all star sleeper! -- and today you made your newfound feelings about naptime very apparent by your ear-piercing, cringe-inducing screams this evening. Like, at one point, my ears were still ringing long after you'd finished your bloodcurdling shriek... Yeah. Those kind of screams. Not cute.

I decided to try to feed you avocados tonight, because, you know... 6 months old, why not, vitamins, nutrients, something new to distract you from your hatred of the world, blah blah blah.

Well, you hated it. Yet another way in which you take after your father. I'm not gonna lie, my heart hurt a little when you threw your head back and moaned (your attempt to escape the Bumbo/dinner) in distaste. How can you hate avocados?!?

Maybe it just takes some adjusting.

Don't worry. We'll try again. *evil mom smirk*

I decided to capture this night in a quick blog post, because I don't want anyone to think that life as a mom (your mom) is always adorable giggles, millions-of-kisses, blowing raspberries and #porteralan. I mean, you're close to perfect... But God has a great way of reminding me, as I gloat in your perfect, chipmunky cheeks and joyful smiles, that we're human. You and I. We mess up. Things don't always go according to plan.

We have bad nights, too. :)

And I love you just the same.
