my parents came for a visit last weekend and brought Lola and their puppy Cricket, who clumsily trotted into my house and jumped on the white couches. which are now streaked with mud. and also G got a new bow in the mail! a little red and leopard print bow literally called "The Gemma" I MEAN HOW PERFECT RIGHT?! we saw it for like 5 seconds. i put it on G's head and the next thing i knew, it was gone. it has vanished. i really think that Cricket ate it. so i told my Mom to patrol her shit because i just really loved that bow. and i want it back!!!
anyway, last week we were having a bit of trouble with naps. i would lay G Money down and 30 minutes later she was up and ready to party, while i was just settling into a new episode of Nashville. rude, right? so i downloaded the app "Best Baby Monitor" that my friend Sandi swears by...basically you download it in two places--i did it on my phone and ipad. so i stick the ipad in her room and i can watch live streaming video of GemmaTV right from my phone! isn't that fancy?! it also has a feature to play lullabies (that i can turn on from my phone) and a microphone which i can turn on and say "SIT ON YOUR BUNS AND GO NIGHT NIGHT GEMMA JULIANNE" which weirds the shit of of her because she can hear me but cannot see me hahahahaaaa. and the app is only $3.99!* (i was later alerted by my friend that the monitor apps can be hacked WHICH IS TERRIFYING, but i am trying not to be paranoid about it) and found out exactly what was going on in Gemma's room whilst she was supposed to be snoozing. i found that most days she plays silently for 30 minutes before shouting "MMOOOOMMMMMMMMMMYYYY!" so in fact, she wasn't sleeping during that 30 minutes at all.
this is really what she was doing:
dancing around in her crib.
the white rabbit gets a new seat. G chillaxin over the railing while staring directly into the camera.
just making sure the white rabbit is still comfortable.
aaaaaand finally. after 42 minutes. she passes out.
so you see, this app has been so great! GemmaTV is my favorite channel.
*this is not a sponsored post. i literally am just obsessed with this app. everyone should get it instead of buying the $100 video baby monitors. the only thing that i don't like about is that i can't read my ibooks on my ipad while she's napping because the ipad is in her room.
