Delightful and Demanding


Here is Sheena looking delightful.

She was pretty good today. Always better in the evenings. Lot of smiles and happy play after her evening feed. Down to 3 milk feeds today. That is a great accomplishment. Just as soon as they get in a routine, it is time to change it. Next month, she'll have to start having her solids before her milk. She won't like that in the mornings. Before I had Sheena, I read a book that emphasised the sleep, feed, play routine. I think I took that to the extreame, because Sheena DEMANDS a feed first thing in the morning. If I put her on the change table before offering her milk, she is not a happy little girl. Her current sleep thing at the moment is to go to sleep at 6.30 at night, but then she wakes up at 5am, and calls us for about an hour, before we relent and bring her to our bed. We'd like her to go down at 7pm and wake up at 6am, but it is not the worst. We're early birds anyway.

Awww - look at your cute girl - she is just darling :) and she's supposed to be demanding, afterall - she's the princess - right? Cute pics! And - I'm glad it's you and not me getting up at 5 a.m. LOL We have to be up at 6:30 on weekdays and always look forward to sleeping in on Saturday, but somehow Brady thinks Saturday must be another weekday ;)
