6 Months Today

What's better blog fodder than a 6 month old baby?

The week started out a bit rough - no sleep and much difficulty eating. We weren't sure if she was sick or teething or the ultimate picky-eater. We're still not sure, but she's been considerably happier the last two days.

Here was Bridgette's schedule today:

4:00 A.M. -- Wake up.
4:10 A.M. -- Basic care: bag emptied, diaper change, nurse.
4:45 A.M. -- Pretend to be sleepy.
4:46 A.M. -- Swaddled and put in crib.
4:47 A.M. -- Pretend to be content.
4:50 A.M. -- Begin to cry.
5:05 A.M. -- Cry progressively harder.
5:20 A.M. -- Finally rouse Dad who gives her a bottle.
5:30 A.M. -- Sleep.
7:03 A.M. -- Wake up.
7:04 A.M. -- Repeat basic care.
8:00 A.M. -- Sit on sofa and play with toys; bounce in doorway; sit on Dad's lap while he works from home for the morning.
9:30 A.M. -- Have birthday song and 4th breakfast.
10:00 A.M. -- Pack up.
10:30 A.M. -- 6 month appointment with pediatrician.
10:40 A.M. -- Read Pat the Bunny with Mom while waiting.
11:20 A.M. -- Shots :(
11:30 A.M. -- Sleep in car; oblivious when Dad gets dropped at work.
12:15 P.M. -- Wake up in Costco wonderland.
1:00 P.M. -- Let everyone at Costco know that it's been a long day.
2:00 P.M. -- Get home.
2:10 P.M. -- Spit out chicken-paste baby food.
2:15 P.M. -- Repeat basic care.
2:45 P.M. -- Listen to Mom read Peter and the Starcatchers.
3:00 P.M. -- Nap.
4:04 P.M. -- Wake up livid.
4:15 P.M. -- Repeat basic care.
5:00 P.M. -- Play with Mom.
5:40 P.M. -- Watch Dad walk in the door.
5:45 P.M. -- Eat celebratory fries for 1/2 birthday.
6:30 P.M. -- Spit out chicken-paste baby food again.
6:45 P.M. -- Bag change and bath.
7:30 P.M. -- Bottle and bed.
8:30 P.M. -- Dream about Mom writing blog entry.

Two Shots at the Doctor's Office

Guess Who Gave Bri This Bib...

Yum! I got Pop's Fry-Love Gene.

Not from today, but here's another shot of a toy up around her arm.

Happy happy 1/2 year!

Eating her first fry, doctor approved.

Hey Kel!
I was looking at the blog with Miriam and scrolling through the pictures. When we got to the Indian bib shot, Miriam exclaimed, "Aaah, that is a cute shirt!" When we got to the video of french fries she said, "And I like french fries, too." Was that a subtle hint or just a desire to have something in common with Bridgetter?!
