My momma has done a great job telling everyone about me and I am appreciative, but sometimes I do not think she sees things the way I do. So I have taken it upon myself to tell the Carli Lynn story, from a baby's perspective (with the typing assistance of my Momma, I can't very well type and chew on my hands at the same time).
8:30 pm - Bath time: I love bath time, really I do. My Daddy thinks that I accidentally kick my legs to splash him with water, but it is no accident. I know exactly at what angle and velocity I need to throw my leg into the water to achieve maximum splash! I did figure out that tinkling in the water does not achieve hardly any splashing - made a note of that.
8:45 pm - Bed Time: Bed time is great. I hold Momma's hand, she talks to me. I get kisses and I smell good. I'm ready for bed time. I like my own space, it is nice. My big caterpillar friend sleeps with me and keeps me company.
2:00 am - I can't breathe! Holy smokes! I can't breathe - there is stuff coming out my nose and when I try to wipe it away it gets on my eyes! Save me! Scream, scream - I must scream!!! Ah - here comes Momma - what is this? What is she doing? It's gonna get me! Ahhhh! Scream!!! Oh - it's just my snot sucker, that's kind of funny! ha ha! But wait, I am hungry. Where did Momma go? Momma? SCREAM!!! Oh - there she is, oh that's nice. I get a dry diaper. Always a plus. Wait, Momma, come back! SCREAM!!! Ah - there she is again. She looks tired. Maybe she needs to use my snot sucker - that would make her smile! Oh good, time to eat....
**I must have gone back to sleep b/c I don't remember anything until...
7:30 am - DADDY!! Woohoo!! I'm rescued, dry diaper, dry diaper...yeah! Feed me - yummy breakfast!
8:00 am - What is this? Why do they keep putting me on the floor? These things hanging above my head, this is really annoying. I keep pushing them away and they come flying back at me...what in the world?!
8:30 am - Hey! There's Momma! What happened? Now I'm on my tummy - no this won't work. I do not like this - SCREAM!!! Oh - hey! How did that happen, now I there are those stupid things above my head again...
9:00 am - Can someone say diaper change?! Oh good, Momma read my mind. How about some clothes? Let me pick...flowers, I want to wear flowers...NO!! Not stripes, Momma what are you thinking?! Take it off!!! Okay, well - BLAH. Took care of that! Can't very well make me where stripes when I spit up on it. Oh good, I like that onesie better...flowers are good.
9:10 am - Mr. Caterpillar!! Long time no see!!
9:50 am - Whose singing to me? What? Wait? I fell asleep? Why am I getting in the car seat? What's going on? I smell something fishy...and it's not my diaper - yet.
10:20 am - Hey I've been here before. There's a nice lady - oh a screaming baby. This might not be good. I might not like this...oh wait, food. Okay, I'm good.
10:45 am - Woohoo!! No clothes! This is great. Check my diaper, I dare you! Ha ha! Surprise Mrs. Nurse!!
10:50 am - Hello Dr. Sorry - no surprises for you, I gave them all to the nurse.
10:55 am - Daddy! Hey I missed you! What's going on? Look Daddy - no pants! Isn't life great?!
10:56 am - Whoa - Mrs. Nurse! What'cha got there. Hey, you seem nice. Ouch, wait, what...OUCH! AHHHH!! SCREAM!! Ouch!!! DADDY!!!!
11:00 am - Okay, if you don't put my pants on I'll hush - mean Mrs. Nurse.
11:15 am - I might need some more food - that nurse really made me mad.
12:00 pm - Car seat, today the car seat's not so bad...so sleepy....
1:20 pm - Are we there yet? Where are we? Momma?! SCREAM!!! Oh - hey! There are you are! Can I eat?
1:45 pm - JUMP! Woohoo! Funny kid on TV - JuMP! Oh no, stuff in my nose - in my eye - on my hand - YUCK does not taste good. SCREAM!!! Ahhh - I love my snot sucker.
1:47 pm - Momma's on the phone - oh here she comes. Woohoo!! Where we going? Oh no, not this thing again. How many times do I have to lay here and bat these things out of my face. Oh - I wander what the IRS did to Momma. She looks mad. Hmmm...better not scream. I can handle things myself.
2:45 pm - Okay Mr. IRS - I have been laying here forever. Can I have my Momma back? Please? I have some issues she needs to address....
3:00 pm - FINALLY - Hi Momma...what'cha smiling at? Oh - that's kind of a not happy smile. Hey look Momma - I pooped!! Can't you see? I pooped! Hey, why are you carrying me like that - give me a hug! I pooped!!
3:01 pm - I get to take a bath? Now? Really? Where is Daddy? Who will I splash water on?
3:03 pm - Woohoo! Bath Time!! Look at all the bubbles!! Why are you scrubbing so hard, Momma? Hey, don't forget between my toes - I'm talented!!
3:10 pm - Ahh, love my towel - lotion's not so bad either.
3:12 pm - What? You said you needed to do laundry anyway - I just thought I would help!
3:15 pm - Mr Caterpillar! I've missed you!!
