Mallory's first night

at Grandma and Grandpa's without Mommy and Daddy. She was such a good little girl, she played on the floor with her toes, she sat in Grandpa's arms, she ate her cereal, she took her little nap but then it was time for a bottle. She was not about to drink that bottle, she got mad at me and screamed. She forced her lips tightly shut and refused me to feed her anything except her nuke. I knew she wasn't starving since she ate her cereal so we just sat and snuggled. She pouted and sniffled for about an hour as she layed in my arms. She wouldn't look at her toys she wouldn't raise her arms, she was in a full pout but was comfortable in Grandma's arms enough to not cry. Elly was there and she was laying her head on my lap so Mally grabbed her hair and hung on tight, El laughed and let her have it. When Mommy and Daddy came to get Mally she had big ole' smiles for them, she got active again but wouldn't let mommy feed her that darn ole' bottle either. My eyes welled up with tears as I watched the love unfold. Someday Mally will want to come spend the night at Grandma's just as much as Elly does, until then I'll wait because Mommy is the most important thing Mally has right now and Mally is the most important thing Mommy and Daddy have too.

I tried doing this for my homework and could not get it to work. She was way too wiggly.

Thank you so much for watching her! It will get better- Garrett finally comes by us now! And Elly had lots of moms so she went by all of us! : )
