Mommy and Mirabel Monday

Today started out pretty well. Mirabel took a little nap in the morning,  played on her playmat and sucked on her fingers.

Then we got dressed and went out to meet up with Calliope and her mom Sonya.

Mmmm .... burritos....

Then, after a walk around the Junction it was home for Mirabel and me.  She napped, I napped, and then she woke up screaming.  After about ten minutes of that, she fell asleep again. And again, woke up screaming.  Third time being a charm, she fell asleep in my arms, again. This time, she didn't wake up until Daddy and Grandma came home.  And did *not* wake up screaming.  She did, however, have a very serious look on her face ... until she threw up all over Daddy about an hour later.  A change of clothes later, she was happy baby, kicking and laughing. And pulling out her NG tube. Sigh .... more vomit when we tried to get it back in. 

Now she's just hanging out with Daddy for a bit before we swaddle her up and stick the thing back down her throat.  

These are the days of our lives.

Cristy and I have a sneaking suspicion that Mirabel is going to inherit her mothers hair twirling  habit.
We moved her mobile from her bassinet to her changing table.  Be honest, do you think it's a little to low?
Mirabel got a bath tonight.  You can't tell from this picture, but this is right after she peed all down mommy's dress. (note to self, don't carry the baby around without a diaper shortly after her dose of lasix).
But she came out of the bath all clean and happy...

...and promptly fell asleep on the couch.

Egg Foo You

As you can see Mirabel now lives under the sea. Thanks to Egg Foo You
- the new iPhone app from Cristy's company.
If you have an iPhone and a face you should get it. Don't have an
iPhone you say, well that's just sad.

My Ohioan Cousin

Amanda and her boyfriend Chris came to see us this weekend and seemed to have fun (except when they were digging through the trash at Red Mill?!?!)
Mirabel had fun too, even though she looks bored in this picture (it's the only one with Amanda looking at the camera).


What did they do to my hand?!?!?

When Mirabel has the hiccups she sounds like a drunken cartoon mouse!

Does this hoodie...

...make me look like a Patsy?

Tube Change Day!!!

Quick, Grab the Camera!
I know that everyone says their baby is the most beautiful baby ever, but in out case it's true.  Come on, admit it, you know it.
Let's just hope she doesn't get my nose.
Her mommy's would be fine.
But of course, we'll love her no matter what.

Okay, I know everyone says "I know everyone says this..." but seriously, just look at that punim and tell me you've ever seen a child this cute before.

And finally, Mr. Bun...

We end as we always do: With the questionnaire, developed by Bernard Pivot on his excellent show Apostrophes...
What is your favorite word?

They grow up so fast...

It's hard to known for sure since we can only see them when she's
crying and we spend our says trying to avoid such drama, but our
little Miss might just have a tooth (or two!) coming in through her
lower gums.
This might explain the drooling and fussiness.

I just get the feeling...

That there is something going on in that little head if hers.

Yesterday, with all the family coming over, Mirabel wanted to look her best.  Okay, Mommy and Daddy wanted her to look her best, she really didn't care.  We put her in a pretty dress with matching onesie and awesome pink-flame babylegs, which she promptly pooped on.  Luckily it was early in the day so we just threw it in the wash and had her all prettied up once they got here.

Then daddy changed her and she then peed on the same outfit (and daddy). so we put her in a different onesie and a hoodie, but at least the babylegs were still clean.

Today she is sporting her new overalls (which you will probably be seeing her in all the time cause they are adorable!)

and in case you can't see them in this picture, the pink and brown fuzzy socks really make this outfit.
