Most evenings me and Audrey try to make each other run out of energy. I try to make her sleepy enough to go to bed, and she tries to stay up as long as possible. Now this ranges from just fun and cute to "im so tired and why wont this baby go to sleep already..." :) Usually Viktor is able to help with keeping her entertained, but some days he stays up during the morning and sleeps in the evening. Those evenings are very interesting.
I'm not sure what it is, but the babe doesn't really like evenings. Maybe its because she is starting to feel tired and wishes she had more control over her body. Maybe she only likes natural light during the day and hates light bulbs. Maybe she remembers that soon im going to wrap her up into a burrito and put her to sleep and that makes her anxious... Whatever the reasons might be, she is usually a little cranky and needs a lot of attention.
Anyways, yesterday we had a fun and busy evening. She woke up from her nap at 6:30 and after she ate we read some books together. Then we played with some toys on the couch. Soon she started to get bored of the same old same old so we moved on to the floor and i brought out all the blocks. Oh how much fun she had!! She kept kicking her feet to make the blocks rattle around and raking at them with her hand. We built little towers and knocked them down. A block is a little big for her to grab on her own, so i would put them into her hand and she would wave it around a suck on it a little. It was glorious fun. :) After that we watched Bambi a little bit and then i gave her a bath. After she feel asleep i relaxed and drank some tea. Mmmmmmmm... Motherhood is a fun and busy job.
