I've been meaning to post these photos all week and just got the chance! As I mentioned earlier, Ed was home with Chloe on Tuesday - just in case her cold returned. He told me later that all was well until 3pm when she became a howler monkey. Sometimes around that time she becomes so in need of a nap and overstimulated that she's all crazy-like. At the end of the day, I could tell he was really worn out. He said something joking to her like "You're crying like this because you think I don't love you, but I do..."
Later, I was feeding her a bottle and Ed came in to see how she was doing and she was completely distracted from her bottle out of the desire to smile and laugh at her Daddy. We abandoned the bottle and the two of them played for a bit. I love this photo because they look utterly captivated with each other:
See: Chloe loves her Daddy a lot!!!!
And PS after last night, Daddy is the only parent who has not 1) bonked her on the head with a cell phone and 2) actually caused bleeding when cutting a fingernail. It was AWFUL! I cannot even believe how much blood there was from such a tiny cut - after she calmed down, she was sucking her thumb to soothe, which I finally figured out was keeping the cut open. I fashioned a baby band aid out of a big one which did the trick, but dear God. It absolutely sucked. I feel horrible about it.
