Keziah is definitely an expert crawler now and is getting the hang of pulling herself up. I've mentioned before that she has been a tough baby these last several months. I've concluded that part of the problem is that she hasn't been easily pacified by the things that worked with Micah - i.e. the soother, and Baby Einstein videos. She'll take her soother for sleeping but otherwise wants nothing to do with it (which I know I will be thankful for in the long run). But, thankfully she has finally started to show an interest in Baby Einstein. It sounds bad that I should want my child to watch TV so badly, but when 4 o'clock rolls around, it is music to my ears! Here she is getting in some Baby Mozart the other day:
Also, I have decided that having two kids is more than double the work - at least with my kids. Yesterday morning Erik took Micah for breakfast and Keziah played happily by herself for that whole hour. But as soon as Micah came home he was in her face and making her cry. She screams if he just looks at her funny. And, of course, Micah loves the reaction :p
(Even though Keziah doesn't care for her soother, she's likes to crawl around with her razbaby teether in her mouth!)
Keziah also loves to fill her diaper in the middle of the night lately. Three nights in a row last week she cried out in the night and I was greeted with a lovely odour as I entered her room. I don't mind a quick midnight diaper change now and then, but when she is ready to get up and play for the next couple of hours, I get a little bit frustrated.
Now I have a birthday party dilemma: Keziah and Micah's birthdays are only 3 weeks apart, and Micah's birthday only shortly before Christmas. I think I would like to have a party but I don't want to plan 2. I'm thinking of having a joint party this year. Any suggestions?
