its been a while, hasn't it?

so it has. sorry! things, as you might imagine, are busy these days. so, here is a quick update.

shirley smiles - a lot!

its ridiculously adorable!

i think she is on the verge of giggles.

shirley also holds her head up very well, sleeps in her own room, loves looking at the mobile above her crib, and has almost figured out how to get her thumb in her mouth!

oh yeah! i almost forgot. she looooooooves bathtime!

wearing shirley

for the past couple of weeks shirley has had a little cold and a lot of gas, so she has been a bit fussy. last night was especially difficult. i think she cried for 3 hours or so before she finally drifted off to sleep. i think the one thing we forgot to try was wearing her. so, this morning when i decided it was time for shirley to take a nap i put her down in her crib. she didn't sleep and started to fuss after about 45 minutes, so i decided to wear her. i walked around, started some diaper laundry, read her dr. seuss and within 10 minutes she was fast asleep and still is. i am wearing her as i write. i did more laundry while she was sleeping, ate cereal (without getting any on her!), read all my blogs and as soon as i am done with this i am going to watch last nights episode of sing off. yeah!
