So today was…okay.
The downer of the day?
Ian spraying the bathroom spray (the citrus kind) in Hopes face. Ugh.
Holding her down with a towel under her forcing her eyes open and putting syringes of water in them to flush them. I felt horrible doing it put I didnt want to risk her eyes getting hurt and you could tell he got her good in one of them. That and my thought process was the more she cried the better. But still.
She did end up feeling better though and about an hour later she decided it would be a good time to stand up on her own in the middle of the floor, not once but twice.
And I knew Boone would be SO proud so I had to call him and give him the news. He is constantly trying to get her to walk, its so freaking cute. Those two have quite the bond.
Past the horrific eye mess though we had a good day over all. I know in just a few months I am going to have a huge handful. I already do but its just going to get worse. Hope takes after me so much and I can see her punching Ian and straight on tackling him on a regular basis. They already roll around on the ground “wrestling”. I figure she will be over Ians weight in no time, she is just ten pounds away right now.
I keep warning him that for all the times he has picking on her when she is a baby that she will get him back big time in a few years.
And with that I am off. I need to start getting some decent sleep again.
