My Morning So Far

Kylie woke up about an hour ago, which is pretty darn decent.  She has been sleeping about 11 hours a night now and is only 4 1/2 months!  This is much appreciated by Rex and me.  I can even start to forgive her for not wanting to take naps. 

Now Kylie's new thing is to totally not pay attention when she is eating.  At first I thought it was just because she is getting the bottle a lot more since I went back to work, but Rex says it happens with him too.  It's like she just discovered the world around her and can't be bothered with eating.  Yeah, she'll get hungry, but after about five minutes she'll just pop off the boob/bottle to look at something that caught her eye.  She has finally discovered all the animals in our house.  And she will do her darnedest to keep them in eyesight.  This morning it was my cat Pork Chop that caught her fancy.

See, this is a baby that's supposed to be eating, but can't concentrate long enough on the boob to get the job done.  My boobs are hurt, they used to be Kylie's favorite things.

So we gave up and went out to the living room for some tummy time for Ky and some blogging time for mama.

Meanwhile, Rex is still snoozing away, with all the chihuahuas and my cat, cuddled around him, snug as a bug.  So jealous.  And I didn't go to bed till midnight last night because my stupid work decided they needed to extend their hours for the holidays.  Who goes into a pet store at 10 o'clock at night?  Yeah, you got it, no one.  We did not have a single customer in the store from nine to ten.  Though earlier we had these crackhead girls come in with their baby who were caught letting their baby nap on a dog bed.  Poor baby.  He was right around Ky's age too.  Some people are just not meant to be parents.

So that's been my morning thus far.  It looks like it's shaping up to be a fairly decent day.  Outside I see clouds building up by the mountains, so hopefully it will rain.  I absolutely adore rain.  It makes the desert smell so so good.  Today I hope to accomplish: wrapping Christmas presents, sending out pictures of Kylie to relatives, and finishing up a custom order for my Etsy store.  Have a great day y'all!
