She is loving her rice cereal and sitting in her high chair. She will sit in her high chair for at least half an hour every night and babbles the whole time. She love to watch us cook dinner, eat at the table and watch us do dishes. We have been feeding her rice cereal each night around 6pm. At first she wasn't sure what to do with it, but now she will get excited and make little noises until she gets the next bite.
I am so proud of how well Madison is sleeping at night! She usually goes to bed by 8:30 each night. Sometimes she will stir a little around 11:00 or 4:00, but usually goes right back to sleep. This week we have only been getting up once at night or not at all. When she wakes up in the morning around 6:45 to 7:00, she will lay in her crib and entertain herself for 20-30 minutes before we get her up. A couple nights ago she fell asleep on my lap, which hardly ever happens. I loved it!
It has been funny to watch her sleep now that she can roll over. Every time I look at her on the video monitor, she is in a different spot. Sometimes on her back, sometimes stomach, turned sideways...we never know! This morning she had turned 180 degrees in her crib, so her head was where her feet usually are.
We are so in love with her and amazed that we made this wonderful little girl. I have been struggling with guilt lately about balancing work and home. No matter what the stress of the day, when I walk into her class in the afternoon and she gives me a big smile, all the stresses of the day disappear.
