Temporary Mama's Girl

As I have mentioned before, Miss E is a daddy's girl. This delights Dh. It delights me too, because then when he is around, I can kind of "check out" and have some down time while he entertains her.

Well, for the past week and a half Miss E has done a complete 180. Now she just wants Mama, Mama, Mama. I've been enjoying the kisses and hugs, and the joyful shouts of "Mama!" when I walk in the room. She only wants me to put her to bed, which is kind of a problem, since I can't really hold her for more than about thirty seconds without experiencing major pain.

Poor Dh is having a hard time not taking this "Mama's girl" phase personally. I'm pretty sure it's just temporary, due to some kind of subconscious recognizance on Miss E's part that her life is about to undergo a major upheaval. I really want the upheaval to come soon.....

Porgie is in a mommy stage too. Except, she has always been a mama's girl.

That picture is adorable! I am always so amazed at how smart they are at this age. They just look too little to really understand as much as they do. I am sure E realizes that her life is about to change very soon (I predict Monday!).
