Bit of Fun

D- Drool and Dribble

Firstly, I would like to appologise for my lack of writing over the last 5 days. Unfortunatly all 3 of us have been laid up in bed with a nasty virus. Its not pretty in here I can tell you! So, if alot of this post does not make sense, then that will be because my brain is only functioning on what feels to be about 2%. So here goes….

Willow is now exploring her new world by tasting, chewing and dribbling… on everything.

I am sure its those new teethy pegs that are coming through which are to blame, right? I didn’t realise that it would come around so quickly. Not the teething part, but that fact that I cannot leave anything within a 5 ft radius of her if I do not want it to be slobbered on. Honestly, it is like having Schnorbitz in the house (except not so big and hairy)!

In fact I did not even think it was that possible for a baby to create so much drool. I swear, if I bottled all of it, flogged it to water aid, they would be able to fill a well in Africa for a year. Her oral emissions are quite spectacular at times. I can sit her in her Bumbo, turn my back for 30 seconds, look back and she has created a moat around herself. Or if I lay her in bed  inbetween me and Jay (for some peace and quiet), When I put her back in her cot, and I lay my head on my newly laundered pillow case, I get an ear canal full of spit, I know exactly who to blame. And my all time favorite…. Willow loves it when you put her up on your sholders and stand in front of the big mirror that hangs in our living room. She could spend ages up there. Not looking at herself, No way! But just chilling… Sucking on your hair! So much slobber, that it runs down your neck (back,face, boobs, arms, carpet)!

Awww, don’t we just love cute babies that dribble…. don’t we?…. really!?
