Baby in the Bathroom - Update!







We have made it into the kitchen this morning and what an adventure. Walking on the wood is just as tricky as the tile floor in the bathroom... She found that out and we had a couple of BAMBIE on Ice Moments! After scaring herself and me - tons of hugs and kisses to get her to calm down and start again. After an hour of walking around and peeing in just about every spot available it was time for another bottle and nap time in the bathroom...
We continued this routine throughout the day so she would walk more. It is very important to her health and happiness and since she is alone without other play mates I have to force the issue sometimes. She took another slip on the wood floor and this time pulled her front left leg a bit but we must press on. As my two legged sons will tell you I don't allow whining - we just press on and do our best. During the night feedings she was not happy because I made her walk to get the bottle and after a bit of nursing I would take the bottle away, walk a bit away from her and force her to walk again. Now before you think me a monster just remember the Mothers are a walking milk factory and they require their little one's to follow the milk too - so see I am not a soulless Mother but rather one who wants the very best for her kids...
We have another storm coming in and so no outside walking for the little one. I was thinking of taking her to the Fiber Room for some walkabout's this afternoon and maybe some playtime snuggling in some fiber.

No one could think YOU a monster! You have done nothing but spend every minute of your day ensuring these babies make it into the world and then flourish once they are here. I am so glad she is doing better. But between the wind and the wood floor, I bet she would prefer you just keep her in your lap at all times. In a few weeks she will be out there bouncing like a ball with the other kids and will forget all about it.
