Our new laptop came today! Hooray! Not that I will ever have time to use it since my baby apparently hates just about everything, including, most importantly, letting me have even one second of peace where I'm not holding/bouncing/jiggling her. It's seriously driving me insane. She started out as such a calm baby. I just thought, oh my, my luck has changed! I got a calm baby after Iris the terror! Nope, this one just decided to wait a bit until she unleased the crabiness. Okay, so I'm having a rough day. I just wanted two seconds in peace to look at the computer and have a moment to myself. I managed to get a bunch of things set up on it jiggling her in one arm (I'm getting good like that!).
With Iris I just remember thinking I can't wait until you get older and grow out of the fussy baby stage. I hated that, I hated that I couldn't enjoy her being a baby. Yes, we have our share of issues now, but I like her waaaayyyy more now that she's grown up a bit. I feel the same way about Eloise, sadly. I love her, she's my baby girl!, but alas, I just can't wait for her to grow up and move past this intensely fussy stage. Sometimes I just think I wish I would have waited longer to have a second because I never got that much time to fully enjoy the toddler stage before throwing another baby in the household mix. Now I have to wait until Eloise is grown before reaping the benefits again. Sigh. I hate feeling that way, honestly. I wish I could enjoy baby time more, but I just don't. It's a vehicle to get to toddlerhood, as far as I'm concerned. Maybe if I had gotten happier babies I wouldn't feel that way.
Well, I'm getting good at the one-handed typing thing, at least! I'll have more fun updates on the new computer soon. Hopefully over the weekend I will get a baby break to poke around some more.
