Eleanor: 16 weeks

Roly-poly McGillicutty!

Sheesh! A kid rolls over ONE time and suddenly you can’t lie them down anywhere without finding them rolled over and facing 180 degrees opposite of where they were – all of 3 seconds later. So yeah, that happened. Saturday night Eleanor finally completed the roll she was teetering on the edge of for the last week or two. Now you can’t keep her on her back for anything. I have an adorable video of this, but sadly, I’m poor and don’t want to shell out the money for the VideoPress on this blog to share it with you. If you’d like to see it, leave me a comment on this blog with your email address and I’ll send you the clip. Zoey makes a “big sister” cameo and it’s just about as cute as it can get.

Also, also, ALSO….Eleanor laughed! A for real, giggly laugh! That made my whole day. Week. Life. You get the idea.

So, other than the whole no-bottle-don’t-you-dare-leave-me-to-earn-a-living-and-provide-for-me thing, we’re doing good around here. I’ve been spending the week trying to gently encourage Eleanor to get on some semblance of a normal sleep schedule. Up till now she has been under the misinformation that bedtime occurs at 1:30 in the morning and extends until 9 or 10am. Lazy lump of baby fat. I’m cutting her a little slack right now though because she’s got a cold. We ALL got sick over Thanksgiving and Eleanor was the last man baby standing. Poor little tike.

That’s all I really have to report this week, other than the teaser that Eleanor: The Birth Story is currently in production and will be released soon. In the meantime, have some cute (mostly faceless) baby pictures:

Eleanor's preferred sleeping position these days: upright.

Am I the only one who thinks little sleepy baby feet poking out of a carrier is about the cutest thing EVER??

If that isn't a mischievous grin, I don't know what is.
