too excited to sleep

The past few days have found the little one teeming with new developments, leaving her way too amped up to sleep through the night.
What's new?
  • sitting up very well with little support...stronger every day and she knows it!
  • teething like a beast...no teeth yet, but she's doing this weird thing with her tongue to keep feeling her gums and soaking through shirts/dresses/bibs with non-stop drool
  • rolling over (at last!) with ease...until now, I don't think it's been completely intentional. Now she's good to go!
  • new sounds...growling like a little dinosaur, screeching, "shouting"...she loves to make her presence known
  • feeding herself...purees are so last week! She loves to pick up chunks of food and feed herself...the more varied the textures, the better.
  • sitting up in the cart at the super market...I don't know who was more excited about this "milestone", her or me. Clearly, she is delighted to have a new perspective while being wheeled around the grocery store....
This baby is so ridiculously happy and has such unabashed enthusiasm for the most ordinary things (well, duh...because she's a baby after all and everything is new and quite exciting).
Still, I'm hoping a little will rub off on me.
Yay! Bath time!
Yay! Oatmeal!
Yay! Daylight!
Yay! Raindrops!

Right??
