The nightshift (Well not really, just bragging about my baby lol)

Published April 27, 2012 by zeekajie

So for the past two weeks I have worked night shift. Which sucks because:

  1. No fighting with Imaan to go to sleep
  2. No cuddles with her and hubby before bed
  3. No watching series with hubby, with the tv almost on mute, because crazy might wake up
  4. No Sleep!!!!!! And I need sleep.

This is also awesome because:

  1. No fighting with Imaan to go to sleep
  2. I get more days off, so I spend more time with baby and hubby
  3. I get to sleep ALL day while my friends slave away
  4. I get a work out running after Imaan, because she’s crazy!

Notice the pattern? It’s all about Imaan.

So for the past two weeks its been two nights at work, two days home. And on one of my work days/nights while Imaan is at my moms place, she decides to take her first steps!!!!! Now this kid is 8 months old has one and a half teeth (with a tooth-brush and tooth paste coz I have OCD lol. And is a bit advanced for her age (proud mommy) and extremely hyper active (tired mommy), one happy camper and a show off.

When was able to sit on her own (3 months old) she would wriggle out of your arms so you could set her down and show you she can sit alone. Then she started crawling (5 months) (well more like sliding) and she would do it all the time because she got more attention. Then she started ‘talking’ (from about 5-6 months), naturally the first word was dadda (jealous mommy) then she went straight to ‘daddy’ (very jealous mommy), then kaka and when she wants something mama, she also shouts at people and wont go to strangers. Good girl. Now round about the time the talking started, getting up against things (and falling on her bum) started happening (a lot). Then at 7 months old (almost) we were visiting my friend Kelly and the two of us were chatting, not really paying attention to the gremlin, and the little attention seeker does NOT like being ignored, she crawls up to me, lifts herself up and stands. AWESOME. She also does that all the time to get our attention and make us jump around and shout like crazy people lol. Shes a smart little girl. BUT…she doesnt want to walk for mommy :-(. She sings with me, stands for me, fights with me and loves me to bits but she wont walk for me.

I will now go ahead and be sad and sleep deprived


....let there be shopping....
