I've come to a realization. Everybody has been lying to me. It does not get easier as they get older! In her infant days, Avery would sleep pretty much anywhere for several hours at a time. She came along with us everywhere and ate in the middle of a huge crowd. She fell asleep in her stroller or on her Daddy's shoulder.

NOT ANYMORE! Sleep only gets in her way. She has things to explore and crawling to conquer. She would rather starve than be bothered by nursing in a public place. Don't take away her beloved toy unless you want to hear the most dramatic cry ever cried. Put on some protective gear because she will kick, scratch and punch you when she gets excited in your arms.

She is full of energy, vibrant and demanding.

And her poor, poor Mama is just trying to keep up.

"How many times do I have to tell you I don't like prunes?"
