Sweet Monster

My dear 19 month old Hannah girl is the sweetest little girl on the face of this earth. She has a mellow spirit about her, while at the same time, can bring out a fierceness that could only have been inherited from her mama. She is a spunky little girl with an attitude that will melt your heart instead of infuriate you. She loves adores her babies, and treats them like they are her own offspring. Don't mess with her babies!

She isn't a picky eater. (We could put rat poison in front of her and she would eat it! -not that we would do that!)  She out eats her brother (and most days her daddy) any day. She is a bottom less pit!

Her favorite word is "No" which sounds like "doh" from the Simpsons. "Hannah, do you love Mommy?" "DOH!" "Hannah, does Mommy love Hannah?" "DOH, DOH, DOH!" See that fierceness I'm talking about?!

But my Hannah girl is not all rainbows and butterflies (although she sure does love such pretty sparkly things!) This child of mine turns into a monster at night. Her sleeping patterns are atrocious! She used to be my good sleeper of a child, but she lost that place of honor in the Haskins' family a long time ago! All respect for decent human sleep patterns have been thrown out the window and into the wind!

This lovely little monster of mine has been waking up at 3:30am every stinking morning for the past month! She cries and screams and refuses to be calmed down. If we leave her sight she screams even louder (not a good situation at 3:30am when sharing a room with brother dearest.) When we bring her to bed with us, she tosses and turns, kicks us in the face, and otherwise leaves bruises all over our body from her thrashing about like a wild child! And after all is said and done, she finally falls asleep around 7:00am. What?!?!?!?!

Hannah dearest, I love you with all of my heart. I love every aspect of your personality and your heart. I even love when you tell me you don't love me! But seriously child, RESPECT THE HUMAN NEED FOR SLEEP!
