Bedtime routine…

May 28, 2007

Ok- long break- no originial excuse but I’m going to try again. There are lots of things that have happened that I do want to report on but with time being short I just had to share our funniest new routine. Katherine is now having a really hard time getting to sleep at night. Rob or I will feed her and then she will appear to go down quite easily. A few minutes later, there will be heart wrenching sobs. We have tried many things and recently, here is what works… I go in first. Katherine sticks her fingers in my mouth and laughs. The one good thing that has come out of this wierd habit is that I now am remembering to cut her finger nails- ouch if you don’t! She shakes her head at me- a new skill- as if to say, “No thank you to sleep.” She seems happy as can be so I put her back in her crib and leave. She begins to cry again. Rob goes in this time. He gives herĀ  a pep talk that as best as I can gather comes down a “You can do it”, athletic-like speech. She goes to sleep. Go figure…
