Sleep Issues

That's basically because there hasn't been much to write about. For the most part, Lily and I have been hanging around the house, occasionally going out to meet Dadda for lunch. Today we're on our own though because he's taking half a day to do the reserves, hoping to get enough hours and cases to bump up to the next level.

Well, one interesting thing that's been going on is Lily's disinterest in sleep. She sleeps fine at night with it only taking her 10-15 minutes to fall asleep, but nap time is a whole other story. Both yesterday and today I nursed her to sleep and then went to go lay her in her crib. This has worked a number of times before but for some reason, yesterday and today she woke up when I laid her down and absolutely refused to go back to sleep. Eventually I got her out, tried to nurse her again and of course she would have none of it. Now (like yesterday) she's playing on the floor. When she did this yesterday it took her another hour and a half to get sleepy again. I'm wondering if that will be the case today. It was okay yesterday because Mike came home at 5:30 but he won't be home until 8ish tonight. Bah!

Oh well, her being awake gives me the opportunity to take future blackmail photos. Take exhibit A - Super Baby! Even superheroes need their vegetables so I should you exhibit B - Carrot Face!
