It MUST be a Wonder Week

That is our answer now when Olivia is acting uncharacteristically fussy. It must be a Wonder Week.

And folks...we are AMIDST  Wonder Week 19--aka "mental leap 4" and she is ALL drama right now.

Here's what we're experiencing:
  • laughing and suddenly crying in the same breath--and then laughing again
  • refusing to nap more than 30 min at a time and thus tired earlier
  • clinging to mommy (which I admittedly love)
  • needs constant amusement 
  • suddenly shy with grandpa and people who look drastically different than me, Charm City Daddy, and the nanny.
  • and basically---fussy, Fussy, FUSSY!

But that's just the wierd stuff. There's good stuff too!
  • she's swaddle free
  • she's rolling/squirming around in her crib.
  • she can almost sit up by herself---soo close.
  • she's grabbing objects quite intentionally and easily.
  • she's playing with the water in the bathtub.
  • she can hold her own bottles when I use these nifty little trainer handles.

(major liberating moment for Charm City Mama pictured above!!)

I am actually glad to be on vacay this week to really give Olivia the attention and stimulation she needs right now. But hey, I'm not crazy--I've got nanny help everyday until 2 p.m. MAJOR sanity saver!

Speaking of sanity savers....I want to do a product review of baby gear I've found useful in the first few months. Working on it...
