Of course, I got a child who is as feisty as I ever was. Maybe more. I at least slept through the night at some point. Sophie? Still thwarting my every attempt at a good night's sleep.
Here is what she has accomplished so far today, and it's only 11:30:
Climbed up on her changing table via the Diaper Genie and a drawer she pulled open. Ingenious.
Ate A & D Creme (while sitting on the changing table). Sucked it straight out of the tube. Yum.
Dumped out the contents of my bedside table. Including those things that I now realize need to be better hidden. (ahem)
Spread about 150 diapers around her room. Luckily they were clean. I won't tell you about the time she got into the diaper trash can. (shudder)
Threw my hairbrush in the toilet.
Chewed on my toothbrush, then tossed it on the bathroom floor when she lost interest.
Threw a Snapple bottle, retrieved from the recycling bin, into the powder room sink. Huge amount of noise, luckily, no breakage.
Pulled every toy out of her toy box seemingly looking for that one thing...
Tried on one shoe of every pair of shoes she has, a not insignificant number, and carried the matchers to an undisclosed location. I will probably still be finding shoes long after she has outgrown them.
Stripped off her pants and diaper no less than 6 times. (We had a major accident yesterday following one of these depantsings. I still can't even talk about it.)
Pulled out a nearly full box of Kleenexes into a surprisingly big pile. They compress a lot in the box, but when fluffed? Look out!
She is now peacefully napping in her crib. I can see her sweet little form on the monitor. She is on her side, her chin tilted up just so, her little arms stretched out at an awkward angle. No doubt she is exhausted from her morning's activities. I love her so much it hurts, but if she's like this at 18 months, what am I in for when she's older?
Update, 5:15pm: In trying to climb onto the dresser/changing table again, she pulled it over on herself. By some miracle, she is completely fine. I, however, am dead from a coronary.
