Today was one of those mornings that no one wanted to wake up.
Kat woke up Jill at 5am. Who in turn poked me on the shoulder and told me that Kat was awake.
I went down to find Kat's pacifier and plug her mouth. This was one of those rare occassions that Kat wanted more than that. So I changed her and then plugged her and patted her to go back to sleep.
By the time I got back upstairs it was 520 and the time that Jill gets into the shower. So I turned on the light and stripped back the covers. Jill was less than appreciative. She DEFINITELY didn't want to wake up. So I pinched her hiney to get her moving. With a lot of grumbling, she got out of bed. As she walked past the dog kennel, she opened the door for Maddie. Maddie didn't even stand up. She raised her head as if to say, "what is the matter with you people?"
And when I got out of the shower and went to turn on Kat's light and give her bottle, she gave me the same growly bewildered look I am coming to recognize. "what do you think you are doing?" she seems to demand of me. (sigh) It is rough being the only morning person in the house.
On a different subject, tonight Maddie and Kat got together briefly. Jill went in to see what Kat was up to in her crib and Maddie tagged along. Kat stuck her arm through the crib slats and maddie licked it. Then Kat stuck her face against the crib slats and Maddie scooted forward, stretched out her neck and licked Kat's face.
This was the opportunity that Kat was waiting for. With her arm still through the crib slats, she grabbed ahold of Maddies fur on her head and grabbed one ear and pulled. Maddie wimpered a little bit but didn't retaliate in any way. This is hopefully a sign that the two of them will get along without bloodshed. We will see.
We are teaching Kat and Maddie sign language. So far, they are both picking it up about the same. Not much.
