Grounded

I hate to break it to all of you who are really excited to meet Chicklet when she comes into this world, but she is grounded! Thats right, you heard me, GROUNDED! I haven't really figured out what that means for a newborn yet, but she is definitely in trouble. This little girl has been misbehaving for a couple of months now and she thinks she can get away with it! Her first offense is repeatedly staying up past her bedtime, and by her bedtime I really mean my bedtime! Actually I am not even sure she ever sleeps! Whenever I am trying to go to sleep she decides she wants to play soccer with my liver as the ball or pretend she is Jane(like Tarzan and Jane) and swing from side to side. Her second offense goes right along with the first. She enjoys hitting and kicking me WAY TOO MUCH! There is one spot that she repeatedly kicks that sends my entire body into a spasm. How can someone that small cause that much of a reaction!?! Her third offense happened yesterday at my doctors appointment. The doctor was trying to get a look at her face on the ultrasound and she just kept her hands over her face the entire time. I told my doctor she would get a talking to when we got home. I am not sure what the terms of her punishment are yet. Maybe she can't have friends over for a year or maybe she is grounded every weekend for 2 years. Basically, I think her social life as a baby is going to be non existent.

What a troublemaker! Maybe you could say-only nursing for 4 months. That's it! Only breastmilk! Even if you want a cracker! Or...You must wear a diaper all the time! You might not like the wad of fluff around your cute little behind, but it has to be this way! Or...definitely no running about the house for 8 months! None at all!

That is way cute Crystal...I've heard this, that babies sleep in the womb during the day when you are up and moving around--*the motion puts them to sleep I guess?? ...and then they wake up when you decide to be still- they don't like the stillness! Did Megan have this problem too? She better not be grounded from us though. Lets not consider us her friends...say, we are adopted uncles and aunts- k?

Sounds like you will have a wild one! Jacob was crazy inside me... but a really good baby. Lucas was calm... and he cries CONSTANTLY! So hopefully yours will be like Jacob. And yes... They will be wearing one piece matching outfits in 15 years!!!

Ha ha, what a cute post. Isn't it funny that they want to play at night? I just laugh. I love it though because thats the only time that Jon can count on feeling him move. (or should I say home to feel) Oh, and love to hear I'm not the only one who has weird spasms. He will also kick me in a spot that doesn't feel to great.
