"Mama's girl" would be a gross understatement these days. I mean, I suppose it's natural, since I'm home with her all day long, and breastfeeding, but this little baby girl is seriously attached to me. As in, she won't even let Mark hold her when she's tired or fussy. She won't let him put her to bed for the night. And by that I mean she just screams and screams until I take her. Now if she's content during the day, she's perfectly happy to go to her daddy. But not at night. Which makes things pretty exhausting. Even on the weekends, I can't even catch up on sleep anymore unless I am sleeping WITH her, since she just cries and cries when she gets tired and won't let her daddy put her to sleep. And I'm of the mindset that if she's crying for me, then I need to be there for her. It's not like she doesn't like her daddy, she just is going through a phase where she wants me. I just hope this changes before our next trip to the US or there are going to be some very disappointed people who want to hold a non-crying Riley bug. They want this face...
And who can blame them?? So in efforts to prepare her for our Christmas trip, we're trying to familiarize her with the important people in her life. Riley, this is Aunt Jennie, remember?? See, she's holding you, and you liked it!
She'll recognize Aunt Jennie in no time!
