46 weeks.

This past week has been an interesting one to say the least.

It's official, Baby Girl is throwing fits. So far it's only when she's super, super tired. She gets frustrated, falls to the floor, throws her head on her hands and screams.

She is so my child.

She really no longer wants to be held at all. To further push that point, she has learned that if she throws her arms straight up in the air when you go to lift her, that she's very hard to hold on to.

Me almost dropping her the first time she did that has done little to deter her from that fact.

She's learning to drink from a regular cup. I see this as unnecessary but I read some negative things on the sippy cups, so we're playing around with this. I am in no means giving up the sippy, just seeing how she does. She's not great at it, but the funniest thing is, she is totally aware of the purpose of the cup now and has taken to trying to drink out of the cup we rinse her with in the tub. Not so tasty.

She's also started leaning down in the tub and lapping the water up like a dog. Kid is a bit odd. But so hilarious.

I Googled "does my child sleep too much?" yesterday. I almost got massacred by some of my Twitter pals, but seriously, my kid sleeps a lot. She's so busy that I guess it's normal.

Who am I kidding? I would give up food for sleep. Once again, so my child.

She is deathly afraid of a couple of her stuffed animals. Deathly. The other day I sat on a bear that giggles and when she heard it, she screamed and took off crawling across the room in tears. Me, being the World's Best Mom that I am, had to see if it would happen again. It did.

Plus side to terrifying your child?

She'll totally cuddle with you to calm down.

I can't believe I just wrote that there was a plus side to "terrifying your child".

Wow.

I adore this child. She is becoming the coolest little thing I have ever met.

The first time I scared G it was by accident, but SO DARN CUTE. I did it again. I'm awful.

I'd also give up sleep for food. Perhaps this is the problem with G. I need to switch my priorities.

That was all so funny! I can see her lapping up the water in the tub. Sarah has just started belly crawling over to the dog crates! I can't believe how fast the year has passed.

Very cute! My little one also laps the water in the bath and drinks it out the cup I rinse her down with. She drinks so much of it she sloshes when I pick her up. Can't be nice, but she is not happy if I try and stop her.
