When Beautiful Bathrooms Make Babies Crazy

Yesterday Lili was in rare form. It was like she was high on Speed. She would not stop. She was running all over the house, eating everything in sight, climbing on, over, or through anything, and sending Daddy over the edge when the family was visiting.

She was incredibly over stimulated. We had some work done on the bathroom (see other blog for details). She had a stranger in her house all day and it really through off the routine. When Matt put her to bed she was practically falling asleep in the changing table. She didn't make a sound when she hit the mattress. Nor did she play for her usual 30 minutes before falling asleep.

I went to check on her around 9:30 and she was dead asleep. She only partially woke up when I got in the linen closet to get a towel (who puts a linen closet in a bedroom anyway). She sat up, looked at me, smiled, and fell over and went back to sleep before I was out of the room.

The Handy Man is back today, but hopefully he will be done early and she can relax. And Matt, too.

But you know what, I have a beautiful bathroom. I mean really. So it was all worth it.
