Keep on Truckin'

My Liliputian is eight months-old today and not exactly partying hardy. She woke up a gazillion times last night, and I had no idea why. But when I went to get her from her crib at 5:30, finally, her breathing sounded like a freight train and she had a rough time of it trying to nurse. So, she's a snotty mess, low appetite, light fever. I put her down for her nap half and hour early, elevated the one end of the mattress, and gave her a dose of Tylenol. Hopefully, this bug won't last long.

This was yesterday's fave activity. I think we spend about 20 minutes walking up and down the hallway. She was pretty pleased with herself.

We met some other moms at a pool on Monday for the Papoose's first swimming experience, which mainly involved me holding her with just her feet and legs in the water (which was cold, BTW!), then floating around in another baby's inflatable crab. She loved that thing. If we start going to the community pool more often, she may need her own inflatable crab. Because, really, doesn't everyone?

We also went to storytime at the Nashville Public Library. Dickson has its own, which we haven't been to yet, but I tend to think it probably does not involve the theater stage, three microphoned readers, puppets, live music, and 50 other kids, mostly under the age of two, that this one did. It was great. Obviously, she had no idea that there was a story going on, but she was totally enthralled with all the other kids and the crawling space.

No big 4th plans around here. Hangin' with the Ouisers, if Papoose is not too sick. Grilling some 'babs. That's about it. Have a safe and fun one!

J had his own inflatable whale because it just wouldn't be right for a kid named J to have a crab.

Glad you had fun at the pool and storytime!

Sounds like a nice time! Mom told me that T and A walked at 9 months and M, C/E, and I all walked at 15, so it's a toss-up. She also pointed out that kids take in so much at the ground level that it's totally fine if they're not walking for a while.

Happy 4th weekend! Hope L feels better.
