Lili really did not like her crib, ever. We tried numerous times to get her to sleep in her crib, but she wanted nothing to do with it. She would fall asleep and as soon as her body hit the mattress, she was awake and screaming. Patting her, singing to her, talking to her while in her crib did not soothe her at all. I soon realized this was an attachment issue and had nothing to do with her crib at all. Shortly after I started co-sleeping with her, she began sleeping through the night. Unfortunately, she still prefers to sleep with mommy, but that isn’t what this post is about. It appears that while her crib was taboo, Naomi’s is not.
I never saw her smile while in her crib, but when in Naomi’s crib, she’s all smiles.
Yes, I realize this is not about the crib at all. This is all about Naomi!
Also, please ignore Lili’s wet shirt. She loves to get her own drink out of the sink. As you can see, the drink tends to find its way to her shirt as well.
And Naomi had just woken up from her nap and was very ready to get out of bed. Poor baby! I made her suffer through some pictures.
However, Naomi wasn’t suffering through these pictures at all.
Being pushed around by her big sister is great fun. She could care less that she was being pushed into the walls or the big swing set box that has taken up residence in the basement. She was having a blast!
Kids are funny!!!!
Grace is still in our bed too. And she was exactly the same way. She would fly into screaming fits the moment you laid her down, even if you were sure she was asleep. We tried to move her into a big girl bed last night and it was a dismmal failure. I guess she just has a lot more healing to do.
