She’s a grunter, who would have guessed.
My not so little anymore, 3 month old daughter doesn’t cry much, but she growls and grunts a whole lot when she wants something. She also grunts when she’s doing something she’s not supposed to do. What are some things she’s not supposed to do? Oh I don’t know, lets start with pulling out her feeding tube.
She still has a feeding tube for those times when she is too tired to take the bottle. Preemies need to eat. They can’t sleep through feedings. The little feeding tube snakes through her nose and down the back of her throat. It gets taped under her nose right above her lip. Pulling it out is no small feat. It takes time, diligence, and effort, but most of all patience. She may work on it for hours, chipping away a little at a time or she may get a good grip and just pull out the whole shootin match. Depends on her mood. Here’s a comparison.
I appear to have caught her contemplating her next move in this shot. No idea what she is thinking but her wheels are clearly spinning. I prefer she not be so demonstrative. Covert op’s shouldn’t be so obvious. She’s making it a little to easy for the opposition in this picture.
This next picture is not very subtle either. She appears to be trash talking a bit; as much as a 3 month old baby can trash talk anyway. While the tongue out is a nice touch I can see I’m gonna have to teach her to be a little more gracious in victory. Or maybe not. Tough call. Anyway, here’s the next picture – victory personified.
Hahaha. This will never not be funny. She knocked off the hat just for fun. I’m throwing in the next shot for free. She got a little angry the next time she yanked the tube. This is her mad face, or as Frank would say, “She’s Cross.” Yes Frank, yes she is. There are a few sweet a cute shots too, just to balance it all out.
On to the update. As of today Anne Marie is 7 pounds 1 ounce and 19 inches long. And she angry. I’m no longer sure about Frank’s safety, but I’m sure he will learn to share, whether he wants to or not.
