Princess Diana the fish.

While I was earning my Masters in Education, I worked as a nanny for a few families in the Madison area.  This past Thursday, I packed up Camille and we spent the day with some of the little ones I cared for.  Now, the kids are 5, 2, and 1 (when I started caring for them they were just 3 and 5 months, and their youngest wasn't even on the way yet!), and they are fully of personality.

The two oldest little ladies just got fish as their first pets.  Earlier on in the day, I asked the 2 year old what she named her fish.  Like most two year olds, she said their names of her three fish were Nemo, Dori, and Nemo.  "Two Nemo's?" I said.  "Yeah, two Nemo's!" she replied.

Later on in the day I asked the five year old what the names of the fish were.  She said their names were Nemo, Dori, and Princess Diana.

I don't know how they know of Princess Diana, but it cracked me up.

Our babe: 2 months

This month, Camille:

  • is holding her head up like a champ.
  • She is realizing where sounds are coming from.
  • During tummy time, she will lift her head, shoulders, and chest!  She is a freaking beast.  Is it normal for babies to do The Cobra during the second month? It must have been all the prenatal yoga.
  • is baring weight on her legs for longer periods of time.
  • is cooing, and taking turns cooing with us.  (mostly with Jason.)
  • has regular yellow poop again.  (Last month we had a problem with an over-supply of breastmilk, and therefore a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance.  TMI?  oops.)

This month, Jason and yours truly:
  • have been sleeping a lot more.  (As in, we wake up once to twice a night, depending on how much baby eats at each feeding.)
  • get to shower sometimes.
  • have found some time for each other (ie. watched Jurassic Park while Camille was sleeping.)
