Dr. Jekyl and Baby Lu

On any given morning, Lu wakes up happy and smiling.

But if I put her in an adorable dress, she starts to get suspicious. "We're going somewhere, aren't we?" she asks, tears welling up in her eyes, "Somewhere that has people." I tell her yes, that we're going to a playdate for her and the other babies who are turning one.

"No! No!" she screams. "You know how I feel about crowds! All those smiling mothers and drooling babies! Put your purse down! Let's stay home! Noooooooooooooooooooo!!!"

"I am not pleased. You could at least bring me a martini and a valium to take the edge off."

"Well, fine. I'll just sleep then. I'd like your word that when I wake up, we'll be home, thank you very much."

"What? We're still here? What did I tell you about when I woke up? Take me home!"

"Help! This person is attacking me! How dare you stand by and just watch! No, wait, that's good, take photos! I may need them later if I decide to sue!"

"Help me!"

"Hello, babies. After this I'm out of here. So look and the camera and let's get this over with."

And five minutes after we got home:

Whoa, is Lu standing on her own now? She's cute even when she's not happy :)

I know it seems mean but I love the picture of Lu standing with her arms out crying, it's classic!

Erin said...

You seriously have the best posts! I love your humor!! She's such a cutie :)

Good lord, the one of her sleeping with the dead cat on her chest. the. best.

Well, it's obvious. The problem is that she's a nudist, and thus abhors clothes of any kind.
Great post, as usual. :)

Summer said...

Awww! LOL I know she was upset, but its hard not to smile at the faces she was making.

Oh my god. The "I am not pleased" photo made me laugh so hard. I feel horrible saying it, but it's true. (But really it's your notation.)

You have such beautiful daughters!
