Lyla has come leaps and bounds behavior-wise since she was born (almost 5 months ago!!). The one thing we are still struggling a bit with is sleep. She's always been pretty decent at sleeping during the night (she usually wakes a couple times and I can nurse her back to sleep within 15 minutes....knock on wood!). Day time naps usually consist of two or three half hour to one and a half hour snoozes. But what I must admit is that we were generously given a beautiful brand new crib in which Lyla has yet to sleep a wink. At night she sleeps in our bed with us and her day time naps are done so in my arms. She could be passed out cold and within seconds of leaving my arms she startles herself awake. It can be frustrating. I get stuck under her for hours a day. I sit and think of all the things I could be getting done if she would just let me put her down. But secretly I can't help but revel in the fact that she wants me so close to her all the time. That she can rest so peacefully with the assurance that when she opens her eyes she will see my face. I know it won't always be that way, so I'm taking it slow. I'll put her down when she's ready. Those dirty dishes in the sink can wait.
Hope you all have a relaxing weekend!
