well the last few weeks, Lily hasn't been sleeping too well...and i felt like i tried everything. so about 2 weeks ago i went to get secrets of the baby is wonderful! this woman knows Just what she is talking about. so i have Lily now on a schedule. she is sleeping about 10-12 hours at night and she takes about 6 hours of naps during the day. she is still only sleeping in my arms....needless to say that is why i was able to watch the whole first season of desparate housewives in 2 days. but we are slowly getting there. for some reason, she won't nap during the day in her crib. she will only sleep in the swing for about 15 mins and then cries. as soon as i pick her up, she falls back to sleep. crazy child. anywho.....tonight was bliss......she was tired, and fussing, so i held her tight and she calmed down. then i put her in her crib, swadled her and put her hat on, her eyes were open, she she fell right to sleep. ON HER OWN!!! this is like the 3 or 4th time she has done this. it is hard for her not wanting to sleep on her own during the day, but i guess i pick my battles, because she is a WONDERFUL sleeper during the night.

the holidays

well the holidays are over...and i am glad. i love that time of year, but i LIVE for a schedule. it was fun though. it was Olivia's first Christmas and she slept through the whole thing. it will be more fun next year. she can at least open her own gifts. she is growing faster that we know. she is still skinny for her age, but she is getting big. she laughs now and is starting to talk. she is definately discovering her voice. we have noticed how different she cries now that she knows how to cry. this is her last night in the tub. we give her a bath every night and she was so tired from running errands yesterday, that she fell asleep in the tub.
she loves her swing. that is her nap place during the day. she is just so cute!
