I thought she would be sleeping 22 hours a day - stupid baby books - but it's more like only half the day and when EVER she's awake she has to be held. I'm lucky I guess that she can sleep on her own, I shouldn't be so picky it's just. . . WOW, if her eye's are open and she's not in somebody's arms (mine because I'm alone all day) she's PISSED.
Speaking of pissed am I supposed to be calling her "My Little Princess" and "Sweet Angel" ect? Because I'm sort of not. I call her "Demon Baby" and "Monster Baby." Too honest? At least I say it in loving baby talk and it's always joking I'm not crazy and abusive or something, I'm just keeping humor in the mix because she's such a pissed off little human being most of the time. DID YOU KNOW BABIES ARE SO PISSED all the time? Stupid movies, I thought they were these little pudgy coo'ing sweet bundles of joy - HHHAAAAAAAAAAA. No.
I'm ok with all of the caterwalling and holding and good LORD 23 hours of my attention that she requires - but I'll be damned if I'm not going to have some fun at her expense as long as she can't understand me.
Does anybody else call their baby names that aren't exactly flattering? I'm betting I'm not alone in this.
OH!! But I DO call her "Baby Bird." That's cute and sweet right? See, I'm not totally going to hell. The reason? Have you ever SEEN baby birds in the nest? When the mother flies up to the nest with a gullet of chopped worm the baby birds feel the disturbance in the air or nest and all SHOOT UP skyward mouths open and screaming to get the worm puke.
The connection? When Daisy's eye's open from waking she starts screaming about 10 seconds later to be fed and anything that gets near her mouth or touches her cheek causes her to try and attack it and suck it. It's sweet and I try not to laught too much when she glams on to her hand accidently or goes buck wild on her blankie. The pic up top is lil Sweet Pea attacking her arm while the boob juice was warming up, isn't she charming?? :)
Chino actually started calling her "Pajarita" (little bird) because when she makes her "poop face" her little lips form a tight "O" and he thinks it looks like a bird beak. Whatever the case I think it's totally cute that we came up with the same nick-name for her - whatever the cause.
