chloe: the bigness of big


:oh the long nights:

this has been a very trying week for us, particularly me.

chloe is fussing and likely teething. her shrill, painful screams have echoed through this small condo with a fierceness that we are ready to leave behind. thankfully it's not continuous. her sleeping sucks. 2 nights ago, she was waking up every 3 hours. last night was better, sleeping a good 7 hours before waking at 5:30am, and then returning to sleep for 3 more hours.

and yet, even though she has tested us this week, she has had some wonderful moments like the following, where she does this funny dancing on the bathroom counter. it was hilarious. it's hard to see in the photos, but as soon as her bare feet hit the counter, she started moving all around, dancing, trying to walk or something. she seemed to love it.

she continues to roll the moment i put her down. i can't keep her on her back now. no crawling, although she's definitely getting those motions perfected.

despite all the stuff going on, she's still an exceptional baby. we had to run errands yesterday and she didn't make a peep the entire time. she actually went to sleep. she seems to get mesmerized by the outside world. what a good kid.
