I have currently been snapping (or at least trying to) photos and video of Eila. She's getting more and more difficult to photograph lately. She rarely sits still for a second. Almost every picture I capture is a blur - which I guess is reflective to just how fast this first year is going by. I am not looking forward to our 8 month photo shoot this afternoon. Lady wants to GO GO GO. She goes from sitting, to crawling, to standing, to bouncing all in the matter of seconds. Tell me - how are you supposed to capture that?
I am currently stopping myself from saying "NO, EILA! That's too dangerous" every 10 seconds or "Eila, you're a baby, not Godzilla!" this kid is a ball of energy - I can't even imagine her at 2 or 3 or even next month for that matter.
I am currently spending as much time outside as possible. The weather the past few days have felt spring-like - or at least milder than the below zero temperatures that we endured all winter long. Eila and I have been cruising the neighbourhood, window shopping and enjoying the fact that we aren't spending our entire day cooped up like chickens.
I am starting to feel a little better about the whole going back to work and sending Eila to daycare thing. We think we've secured a place for June/July. I just need to go and take a tour (Steve already did - and didn't hate it). It's literally right next to Steve's work - just down the street from mine - and only costs a little more than our monthly rent. We plan to try it out for six months and see how it goes. We are also looking into the possibility of Montessori school once she turns 1.5/2. We are going to check out some of the schools in our area - just to keep our options open. But it's nice to know that we won't be in a jam come June.
Eila is currently skipping naps as often as I skipped class in high school. Someone needs to let her in on how awesome napping is. I think we are in the process of merging her morning and afternoon nap. She was doing three naps a day consistently - now she's down to two and on the off occasion back up to three. But she's been pushing that morning nap later and later.
