Leah had had enough of the day!

Mom and dad came over last night to play Wii, have some dinner, and visit the girls. Hannah and Leah had been good all day, and of course when they came in, Hannah had a mini meltdown. Mom handed Hannah over to me which in turn forced poor Matt to make dinner.

If you have never played Wii before, it is very entertaining, and Matt and Laura boxing each other is quite hysterical to watch. In any case, everyone had a lot to look at last night and my little Leah always takes it all in.

We try to give baths around 8:30 and their last bottle around 9 so they go to bed around 10. (around being the key word). They eat every 3 hours during the day - like clockwork and will always let you know when they are getting hungry - pretty much on the hour.

So last night Hannah got her bath first. She likes to take her baths with Mommy and really loves stretching out in the water and kicking her feet. She was enjoying her bath and Leah decided she was going to freak out. I mean FREAK OUT. Leah is my laid back baby. Laura has so nicely named her Low maintenance Leah (and High maintenance Hannah). But not last night. I think Hannah was in there going - "girl, what is your problem???" I have never heard a child cry this way. It was a complete temper tantrum. Mom and dad were still here at the time and their perfect "dots" as they call the girls "never cry". Well they heard it for themselves last night! Hannah's bath was shortened, Leah got a very quick one and both bottles were in their mouths within 10 minutes. Needless to say, my parents bolted. A little bit of overstimulation i suppose!

So they both ate well and Leah went down at 10 and slept until 7:45 this morning. Hannah woke up at 4:30 and got to lay in bed with me for a little while. I thought Leah would be waking up shortly after Hannah. Oh well. My little girl had decided that her day was over and it was time for bed. Who would think that they would be able to tell time so well?

A little gross PS: Leah loves the nose sucker. I mean, seriously? She thinks it is hilarious. And I hate to say it, but if anything gets in her mouth or on her lips she could not be more elated. ick. guess it makes that awful task a little better. (I just thought I would gross everyone else out as much as me, since I deal with it every day).
