Amelia Turns One Month Old Today!

Dan woke up this morning and said "Wow, she slept through the night!" To which my response was "No, YOU slept through the night." At least someone in this house is! And I am glad it is the one that has to get up and go work all day long, though he is also the one that is allowed to have coffee if it gets too unbearable.

Amelia is doing quite well. We have learned that she hates Mondays as much as the rest of the world. I have no idea why this day is any different than the rest of her days, but the last two Mondays she has been in a horrible mood, hasn't slept much at all, and just wants to comfort herself with food all day long (when she is old enough I'll teach her to enjoy a good pint of Ben and Jerry's for this purpose). Luckily she follows this act with a night of only waking up once between 11:30pm and 7:15am, and then a very peaceful Tuesday (which explains why I am able to write this blog entry). In general, she is very sweet and cuddly, and it seems she is starting to enjoy her bath time and continues to enjoy, or at least sleep through, her afternoon walks with the dogs. Speaking of the dogs...Blaze seems to have designated himself as her protector. He gets very worried when she cries, and will come and get me, or if it goes on long enough, he will howl along with her in sympathy. Very cute when it happens at 4 in the afternoon, I feel sorry for the neighbors when it happens at 4 in the morning!
