A dream


Sheena is usually a dream to put to bed. Pop her in, a small happy baby dance, then she'll lie on her side, and contentedly pop off to sleep. If she resists in anyway to rolling on her side, I know I have put her down to early. Recently she's taken to squealing as I walk out the door, but I ignore that, and it rarely lasts.


However..., now that Sheena has been getting into sitting by herself for over a week, she has some other options to add, and today I went back in, she was sitting in the middle of her cot. It is so odd for me to see her in all these different possies after so long. Resettling her from now on in going to be quite different I am sure.

Delphine does the exact same thing! When she started sitting up a bunch in her crib, we put her in a little sleep sack and it made her realize she needed to stay still.

Oh I can remember when Kayla learned to sit up on her own - then nap time became a battle! I would lie her down and she would immediately "pop" up - like she was saying "what? You can't force me to lay there, I can sit up now" LOL

Ah - no sympathy here - it won't be long before like me, you are tripping over a little redhead in the hallway - we have a step ladder to help Hannah climb into her single bed but the little bugger seems to get out of it and find her way out into the hall with no trouble at all!! One morning I awoke to her sitting on my bed holding her father's midnight snack bowl on her lap and crunching into one of his left over BBQ shapes! It is great that Sheena is getting such mobility. Hannah's joints are really lax too - it is certainly an odd feeling when you are picking them up.

What a cutie pie you have! And congrats on her new accomplishments. It's such a fun stage when they start doing so many new things. Hugs to you and her from Tarenne and me! And thanks for visiting our blog today!

There are some differences in 'dialect' with Auslan between the states however I don't think they are very significant. My sister seems to move easily within the deaf communities of QLD, NSW and Vic. Signing isn't a bad way to help finger dexterity - Hannah's cake is an approximation (context is still important for a number of her signs) - the actual sign is all fingers cupped down towards the back of the other hand - she is just doing one in the photo. Her sign for apple looks more like the one for beard close but not quite right. Still it makes it SO much easier for us to understand what she wants - she looks and watches us sign and practices her own signs too - There is a great website a signbank - from Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind that is worth checking out. - it has the state variations too.
