Our friend Jenn made this awesome bonnet-- how great is it?? I love my little Holly Hobby baby
Sleep Lady's book from my library, and with her gentle sleep advice was able to finally help Dorothy organize her naps. (THANK GOD-- and they are not even good naps everyday but I don't care because it is so wonderful to have a little tiny bit of predictability). But I am not ready to sort out nighttime sleeping because when she wakes up in the middle of the night, I am so freaking tired, all I want to do is feed her real quick and stumble back to bed. HOLY SHIT it sucks when babies don't sleep.
I know that I either need to resign myself to this or figure out how to phase out night wakings, but right now I just want to complain for a minute because I only sleep in 90-minute chunks, and I kind of need to be sleeping longer than that, you know?
You know what else she is? ALMOST A DAMN CRAWLER. I think if she could sit up by herself better she would be full on crawling because she can get to a sitting position from lying down-- a sure prerequisite to crawling-- but she doesn't have enough core strength to stay there. She is a darn good scooter, though, and occasionally, she gets up on all 4s and crawls a tiny bit before collapsing flat and reverting to slithering.
That baby. She's lovely.
