Mr. Cranky Puss & Rihanna

Oh Amari and his “girlfriend” Rihanna. Nothing makes him happier than to hear her voice blaring through the speakers. One minute he could be throwing a temper tantrum and screaming at the top of his lungs and as soon as her voice hits his ears he gets this big cheesy grin on his face and will start flailing his little arms and kicking his feet with excitement. We call it his happy dance.

Right now, as I type this post we are listening to Rihanna and have been listening to her for the past thirty minutes. I’m not the biggest fan of Rihanna, but stinker makes a fuss when I try to change the station and listen to something else. He is not in the mood for Usher or the Black Eyed Peas right now. He is currently sipping on his orange juice and having a dance party in his highchair. He is one happy little boy right now. I don’t know how much longer I can listen to “Only Girl In The World,” “Rude Boy,” and “S&M”. We have been listening to them over-and-over again. I think I’m going to have to make him a Rihanna playlist now.

The whole reason I was posting tonight was because he was on cranky little boy (because mama woke him up from his nap so he could eat dinner). His naps have been all over the place the last couple of weeks and Trev and I are having a hard time getting him to nap twice a day at the same time every day. Today he cried in his crib for an hour before passing out in his swing and sleeping for thirty minutes.  He of course woke up when he heard mama’s voice. =/

He cried all throughout dinner tonight and frustrated, I put on his “girlfriend” and he has been happier ever since. He is currently playing with a mixing bowl and a wooden spoon and rubbing his feet on the kitchen floor while he dances to “S.O.S”. I don’t even know where his fascination with Rihanna came from. All I know is that she makes him happy when he hears her singing. He even knows whom she is when her music videos come on the T.V. Talk about strange fruit right there! I guess I should be thanking Rihanna for making my one year old so happy and I am now on a mission to make him a CD for him so that he can listen to her 24/7 while he plays. Joy…
