Sunday Afternoon with Morgan Monster

"Morgan Monster" is a nickname Morgan has probably had since birth. No, make that before birth.  Danny and I referred to her as a little monster before she even got here.  Lovable, I know.  Monster, for short (yes, there's a nickname for the nickname), was away from home all weekend.  She stayed with her Auntie Ash Friday night, and her Honey and PaPa Saturday night.  I missed her so much, but it gave me a chance to do a couple of projects around the house.  I cleaned out and reorganized my pantry and reorganized some of my kitchen cabinets.  Danny and I usually do date night when Morgan's away from home, but this time I had a date with myself.  He was doing football work in the other room while I snacked on pasta (I'm calling it a snack because it was too late at night to call it dinner) and watched a chick flick.  I haven't done that in so long and it felt SO GOOD!

Come Sunday morning, though, I was ready to get the Monster back.  We met my in-laws in Trussville and ate lunch and then came home.  I declared it a relaxing, do-nothing Sunday at home.  Morgan has either a cold or allergies, so she's all snotty and stuff.  And then her molars are coming in, so she's all drooly and stuff, too.  She's taking it all like a champ and is her usual silly self, but I still felt she needed a good, restful day at home.  So I bathed her in that baby vapor bath stuff, put her in PJs early, and let it be a fun day in the house.

I decided that I'd follow her around for an hour or so with the camera.  So funny.

Snack Time

She loves playing with the buckles on anything -- high chair, car seat, anything.

This is her old bouncy seat, which makes for a good toy because of the buckles.

One reason I cleaned out my cabinets this weekend is because I wanted one just for her.  I initially thought she'd just pile it with a whole bunch of her little toys, but quickly realized that she thought the whole cabinet was a toy.  How could I not know she'd do this? :)  Both of my nieces climbed in and out of cabinets at my mom's house when they were this age (one even climbed in the dishwasher!), so I should've known she'd do this.  So funny! (And don't worry -- those aren't nails sticking out inside.  Those are the things the shelf was sitting on.  I took the shelf out.  I'll probably go ahead and take those little things out, too.)

I closed the door and asked, "Where's Morgan?"  And this is what I got! :)

Again and again, of course.

And then when I decided to take a break from "Where's Morgan," she decided she'd close herself in.  And...well, she didn't quite figure it out at first. LOL
I was dying laughing around this time because she just wasn't getting it.  I kept saying, "Morgan, I can still see your feet!"

Still trying, LOL. She eventually figured it out.  But boy, it sure was fun watching.

Playing with her bunny.  She roughs him up really bad.  Tough love, I guess.

And dancing to Violet's singing.

We had a very fun Sunday!  I hope you all have a nice, safe, and productive week!
