When I first started taking the photos-a-day, sleep was a terrible thing. I like to remind myself of this from time to time. That we were up til midnight with a screaming baby that we couldn’t calm for anything. I would shhhhush/pat until my tongue would hurt and arm was tired. G makes fun of the time I finally said, “Oh can you just shush Ella!?” We were all tired and cranky. Now sleep is so easy (most of the time). We have a bedtime routine and then she usually (not always) sleeps through the night (6:30 p.m. to 7 a.m.). She will wake up and kick around, then soothe herself back to sleep. In the last night or two, she has started to kick around so much that flips around 180. I put her down with her head where her feet are and vice versa. I’m so thankful that she knows how to sleep (most of the time).
All the love.
