But PLAYTIME is precious, also!!
This ornery stinker!! She is smiling ever-so-slyly for me, but at least she is smiling. LOVE THAT BEAUTIFUL, GUMMY SMILE!
Oh boy, I can't wait for warmer weather. Yes, I know it has been warm outside recently, but it just isn't dependable enough, you know? Like, one day it's beauuuuutiful and the next day it's 40 degrees! I am SO over winter...never liked it in the first place, but anyway...All the back-and-forth temperatures have made Todd sick. He's been sick for about a month and it's sad!! I'm really worried about him, but so far Molly and I have escaped the worst of it.
On a different note, this little turkey is almost 5 months old (she'll be 5 months exactly on April 6th) and her sleeping habits have gone out the window. Routine? Around here, lately, we are asking WHAT'S THAT?? She has no specific routine lately. The little turkey sleeps about 2 hours a day, AGAIN, and it's bringin' me down, fast and hard!!! I read in Baby 411 that around 4 months of age a baby's sleeping habits change tremendously, so I hope that is all this is. Molly wakes up around 6:30 each morning and I try EVERYTHING to get her to sleep until at least 7:30 or 8:00...I put the passy back in her mouth. I re-swaddle her from where she's worked those little arms of hers out of the swaddle during the night...I un-swaddle her....stuff passy back in her mouth. She flips. She rolls. She tosses and turns, OBVIOUSLY ready to get up. UGH!!! Last night she did not go to sleep until almost 10:30 and it was CRAZY when Todd tried to get her to sleep. Finally, he just had to lay her down and let her work it out herself. LOL...and she did!! She RARELY naps any more, although she is asleep right now...I had to sneak in this blog because I don't know how long she will actually STAY asleep. Lately, it's as if I am on pins and needles between allll the stuff to do around the house plus look after animals plus work, etc. Oh well. I know I should cherish this time while she is little, and I truly DO cherish it. It's just hard. Many evenings I can't even work until Todd gets home and takes his shower and gets ready to "take over" for his shift! LOL....
