Guess what I did? I actually went in my swing....and enjoyed it?!?! Mom put me in it while I was calm and awake and I just hung out in it for like 2 hours. I dozed off every once in a while. Dad came home from taking Joshua & Jonathan to the YMCA and he didn't know where I was....he even wanted to know if I was medicated or something. It was pretty nice. I kept trying to look backwards out the window. I may even try it again some day. I was awake lots today. I enjoyed all my black & white play things and fussed a bit too. Mommy's friend Amy came over to visit Mom for the evening....me too.... she held me while Mom did some dishes and picked up a bit. I am still poopin' like a champ...I pooped all up my side and then when Mom got me nakie to change me, I turned on my cat-like speed and reflexes and stuck my hand in it and smeared it on my chest...fun stuff...smelly but it comes in such a great shade of yellow and I was missing my yellow complexion I guess. I got washed up a bit and then rested for the evening. I slept close to Mommy who was acting funny in her sleep. She told me she kept dreaming I wasn't breathing and so she was up checking on me all night....she needs to relax a little bit more....there's a good idea for Mother's Day. Have a great Friday!
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
