Today is one of those days. I know he means no harm. Chances are it's more my PMS and upset stomach than his attitude. But *everything* is getting on my nerves! Many days I'd like to just cuddle. In fact, I wish this usually curious and independent toddler would. Today, of all days, he refuses to leave my side, won't let me leave the room (which made throwing up earlier today from some eggs gone wrong difficult), won't listen to anything I say or ask, stares at me with big empty eyes like he isn't comprehending when I know he is, and seems to purposely be doing the opposite of what I ask. Oh, and my darling sleeper usually goes to bed around 11pm, sleeps through the night, wakes groggily for milk around 7 or 8am, and happily falls quickly back asleep for another couple of hours until 9 or 10am. (I should probably quickly explain-- he is put to bed between 9 and 10pm but he chooses to "play" in his crib until later--which is fine with me who has insomnia, his whole sleeping routine and sleepy-head nature is great for me actually--I fall asleep around 4am, drag myself up after a cat nap to give him milk at "first call" and fall back asleep like he does until 10am). Anyway, today he was up for milk and diaper at 2am, which was no biggie because I hadn't fallen asleep yet, but then up and ready to go go go at 6:30am! Which means I got slightly over 2 hours of sleep on which to deal with him today.
I'm staring at the clock counting down the minutes until Romeo will walk in the door from work. Unfortunately, with his job each night is different. Last night he shocked me by arriving home at 5:55 of his own accord! Gasp! Did he really get home before 6pm? And without my prompting because there was something he or we had to do that night? With my luck tonight will be a 7 or 7:30pm evening. Well, when he does get home, Mommy's eating in the bedroom (if eating at all on this still woozy stomach), and Daddy is on full-time duty. I only feel slightly sorry that Daddy doesn't know this yet.
Anyway, a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I promised you more pictures of Tybalt, this time with his hair short right after his first cut. Well, the cut was months ago, I still haven't blogged about it (Oops! Bad, Juliet, bad!), he actually now needs a new cut, but I do have his cute short hair pictures. So, in order to keep me sane and remind us all how cute he is, and remind me how much I love him, lol, I thought now would be a decent time to put up some cute pics. Even though they are 5 months old (from January when he was 17 months old and he's now coming up 22 months): Enjoy!
|"Hi, Mommy! Sure, I'll model for Grandma, but I think you forgot to put my glasses on me this morning!"|
|"Oh, you were serious about the modeling and smiling thing? What's the big deal, all I did was get a haircut? (And scream bloody murder throughout.)"|
|"What? Modeling means staying still and smiling nicely? I thought it meant running and giggling!"|
|So not interested in getting any good shots for his Grandma and Grandpa in Chicago.|
|"In fact, I'm A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!"|
AAAAAAAAAaaaaaannnnnnddddd, now he's found a cereal bowl and metal spoon to bang. (Why can't think kid at least choose some quiet tupperware?) Gotta go put an end to "band rehearsal" as he's now moving on to banging the furniture, the cabinet, and the cable box with said spoon...and now scraping the walls in the hallway. Sigh....Romeo? Romeo? Wherefore art thou, Romeo?
