We've been working on the baby sleep scheduling thing. Trying to teach her when she should want to eat, when to sleep, etc. Last night we tried to let her cry for a bit before she fell asleep and I lasted about a minute with that. How is she ever going to learn if I'm such a wuss?!
We have been trying to put her down in different places so that she doesn't get too used to one specific spot and should better be able to sleep wherever. It's rather overwhelming all the things you need to teach them already!
The last three days she has completely skipped her midday nap. Noon to three she is wiiide awake. Silly baby. The nap after that is usually only about a half hour, but she doesn't fuss through it. Today she has fussed all over the place. One would think that she would be ready for nighttime by evening, but no such luck.
It's so crazy how every day is so completely different!!
In other news, she has a real belly button now! I noticed last night after a change that she had a smudge of blood on her belly and freaked out until I saw that sitting in the middle of her chest was her shriveled little walnut!
Despite all the feeding and changing and attempts to soothe to sleep, I am getting a lot of reading in. Making her food for 20 minutes at a go provides ample book time and I am taking advantage of it as best I can.
Yesterday I finished Cause Celeb, a novel by Helen Fielding who wrote Bridget Jones' Diary. She has a very interesting sense of humor and is easy to read while not being flaky at all.
Right now I am in the midst of East of Eden by John Steinbeck. An old classic that immediately drew me in. It's a long one, but has been fantastic so far.
Time to sign off. Food needs to be made for baby and she seems to need to go for a walk. This lack of napping seems to also make her a bit grumpy.
