I had a lovely (early) morning with Amélie, while Lu went out shopping. It didn't last long though as Amélie tired out between 9:30am-10:30am, and around 10am started falling asleep on me, including in my arms which was so cute. I took her to the cot at one point, and she lay down as if she was going to sleep. Then after a couple of minutes she suddenly jumped up, and looked at me. I couldn't help but give her a broad grin, and she gave one back and burst into maniacal laughter. I burst into laughter as well and it took me a couple of minutes before I could stop, it was just one of those moments. I picked her up, but a few minutes after that she fell asleep on me, so she must have been tired.

I tried to get a nap while Amélie was napping, but it didn't really happen. There must have been some slight disruptions last night as I know I was tired. For some reason when she's napping I can find it hard to settle, as if I have an ear ready for when she wakes up. She only slept around an hour, so it wasn't a long time.

I had another proper nap in the afternoon, then whiled it away (not so productively) on Facebook and Twitter. I did get some website work done though, and then cooked a relatively healthy dinner of salmon, rice and vegetables. It was timed well, just as Amélie and Lu came through the door.

Lu took Amélie to bed, but after 45 minutes to an hour there was a shout, and Amélie was vomiting up all her dinner, again. Luckily, again, Lu managed to catch most of it, but it still meant a change of bedding, a bath and change of clothes for Amélie and Lu, and lots of upset.

By my count this is the third time in a week, and it's getting a bit frustrating from a number of perspectives.

I tried for the second time to scrub a vomit stain out of the carpet, where Amélie did a mini-puke a day or two ago, but am not convinced it has worked. It only seemed to be mashed up banana, but for some reason the stain is visible. This time I used more carpet cleaner, and a lot more water over a much larger area. I don't want to have to buy a full on carpet cleaner...
