The bean started to get really fussy this afternoon. Behold, the saga of our evening:

Try to put laundry away – baby wails.

Pick her up.

Bounce her.

Sing to her.

Think: Holy crap, when was the last we changed her diaper?

Change her diaper.

Bounce her again.

Sing to her again.

Put her in bouncy chair.

Feed her.

Burp her.

Put her in the comfy sling she fell asleep in yesterday

Success! For not very long.

Show her pictures that transfixed her yesterday.

Put those down after she swats you in the face.

Put her in stroller.

Walk around the block.

Return home. She’s quieting down…

Take her upstairs to see what’s going on there.

Note she may be finally sleeping – try to put her down.

Regret trying to put her down. Pick her up again.

Walk back downstairs.

Turn on Hawaiian music.
