ECFE

Yesterday Dahlia & I went to an ECFE (early childhood family education) class. It was our first one. It's a parent-child class for 6-12 month olds. There were about 6 other kids there - most were 11 or 12 months old, one was 8 months old. Dahlia & the 8 month old were the only two that weren't mobile (I'm not complaining). I think Dahlia enjoyed seeing the other kids. We sat around and played with scarves, talked about eating habits and what the babies *should* be eating right now, learned a couple of signs, sang some and sang some songs. Dahlia actually started CLAPPING at the class! She's never done that before. It was really really cute.

Today she's very cranky. I fear that she has a cold. Steve's just getting over one and Dahlia's been SUPER cranky since yesterday afternoon and she has a runny nose (clear but runny). *sigh* I am dreading a cold for her (and me!) because I have a big shoot this weekend - two overnights (ugh). Oh and the other fun thing? Dahlia hasn't slept through the night in a week. I'm so tired and I've given in to bringing her into bed with me more times than I can count.
