You hardly go anywhere without Mulder the fox and you can now pull your hat off on your own. You hate wearing anything on your head and have been really grouchy this week. You have just finished a nasty teething cycle. You have 2 bottom teeth now and you love bitting on everything. All of us hate teething... I feel like we have tried everything. Frozen waffles, cold toys, cold rags, popsicles, Gripe water, cold chew toys, Sophie the giraffe, Wooden toys, teething rings and nothing has worked. I am hoping it just starts to get better soon and that you can be occupied with the weather. It has been in the 60s all week and we have spent at least 2 hours a day at the park. You love watching all the kids play and run. We practice your walking and standing at the play ground and you smile the entire time. You love showing off and being proud of yourself. I am so proud of you too. I cant believe how social and flirty you are. We cant go anywhere with out people stopping to wave back at you and drenched Mulder. You still slobber everywhere (On Mulder mostly) and its now just a really really cute slobber. Making animal sounds has been your favorite thing lately. You love making the sounds of horses, monkeys and goats. You do a really cute goat baaahhhhh and I almost die laughing every time.
You bring me so much joy and laughter Jude. I have been thinking a lot about the kind of mother I want to be and how I want to parent you. I want you to be happy and to grow up happy but i am realizing that discipline is also apart of that. Your father and I have been really trying to figure out the best way to raise you and honestly I feel like we are doing a pretty damn good job. You are even sleeping in the crib every night! I just feel like I was meant to be your mama.
I love you JuJu.
