We finally got around to buying some outlet covers at Walmart today. So now our downstairs level is mostly childproof, with the exception of a couple cords that Adrianna likes to grab and twirl and the dogs’ water and food which Adrianna loves to stick her hands in. In fact, she is like a little wind-up toy. We will pick her up and remove her from the area where the dogs’ water/food is and bring her to another part of the room or even the other room. Immediately when we set her back down on the floor, she is back in action, crawling back towards the forbidden area. I swear her hands and legs start moving before we even set her back down. Well, maybe not, but she sure takes off pretty quickly.
We are teaching her the word “NO.” Sometimes she will startle when we say it, but I am not sure if it is just our tone of voice or the actual word. I am pretty sure that she is learning what is allowed and what is not, but she sure likes to push and test us. Not in a bratty way; more of an explorative and inquisitive manner.
I took her to the doctor on Friday because she still has a really bad cold. She got to the point where she was unable to breathe from her nose because it was so runny and stuffy. Her coughing and difficulty breathing was also waking her up during naptime and at night. So we have some drops to give her that help a little. At least they help her to sleep. She weighed 18 pounds and 15.5 ounces.
Her fifth tooth is coming in already. It is on the top towards the back. That explains why she has been chewing on her fingers so much on that side. Sweet baby. At least the last couple of teeth haven’t been bothering her as much as the first couple of teeth did.
This evening she had a poopy diaper. Not an uncommon occurrence. But Annabelle (Shad and Lynette’s dachshund) must have really thought the smell was magical. As Adrianna was crawling around, Annabelle followed her for about 10 feet with her nose right there. Adrianna was unfazed. I can atest to the fact that, upon changing the diaper, the smell was definitely not magical.
