Sleep training is a really hard process. I'd rather be potty training. It's difficult to listen to the crying and to know when it's better to let her fuss or just pick her up. It's crazy to be going through the process again so soon but we know the rewards. Christiana has been sleeping great for months now. Things are different with Tali because I am nursing and can just bring her in bed with me and nurse her when she fusses during the night. However, in the long run, we are aiming for better quality sleep for both of us. If she's in bed with me, she wakes up every two hours.
Every day and week that passes I know we are getting closer to more sleep but that would mean she's growing up and no longer a newborn. It's too bad all the sweetness of newborns comes with so much sleeplessness.
We ventured out to home school co-op today. It went fine because there were plenty of people to hold the babies. Christiana was much better than expected. She's been a bit crabby lately but there were no signs of fussiness until it was time to go. Tony was a big help although I think he felt a little embarrassed pushing the stroller and walking in with Amanda. He'll get used to it. When he was helping carry the girls back into the house afterwards, he said that he couldn't wait until the girls were all walking. "And not slow walking like Amanda." It will come soon enough. Then I'll be saying, "Tony, go catch your sister!"
Blogger and my camera let me down today. The macro button got pushed so the photos from today and yesterday didn't allow close focusing so the camera focused on the blanket behind Tali instead of her face. And blogger won't post the second photo horizontally. I don't know why but it occasionally turns my photos for no good reason. I don't have time for technological glitches. I just need things to work! :) Maybe tomorrow.
