We're currently trying an experiment... will Penelope sleep in her crib?
I put her down for a late nap (or an early start to the bedtime routine) at 8:40 in her crib. I turned on the baby monitor, turned off the lights, and am now waiting to see what happens! She's making some noises in there, but she's not crying - and she's a noisy sleeper, so those could just be sleeping noises. I'll go get her once it turns into real fussing/crying.
If this works ok, then we'll try the crib for our afternoon naps. Now that I have the whole baby monitor thing worked out, I'm going to use her crib more often. She won't spend the whole night in there, she'll stay in the bassinet in our room until she's a little older. I'm not ready for her to sleep that far away from me yet.
This weekend should be an adventure. I have the boy-child for the whole weekend and we're going to spend it at their house. I'm sure she'll do just fine... I'm curious as to how it goes Saturday at the Library tho (boy-child has to do research for a history report). I'm sure if I have plenty of bottles and I bring the Moby wrap then we should be ok.
Oh! And Sunday is Bryan's birthday! My wonderful husband turns 35! (He will not be pleased that I announced that on the journal *lol*) We'll be over at my Aunt Diana's house for cake & superbowl watching... Go Steelers!
