Last night Penelope actually slept for a 3 hour stretch! It was just one stretch, the rest of the night were 1 & 1 1/2 hour block, but that one 3 hour nap did wonders for me. I'm not sure how much sleep Bryan got since he had to be at work early this morning and left before P & I got up for the day. I hope he was able to get enough rest, poor guy is having a hard time adjusting to this new work schedule.
My biggest gripe about sleep right now is that I can't seem to get Penny to go to bed before 11pm. Even if I start the process at 7pm, she won't sleep until close to 11. I've tried night baths, the swing, lullabies, rocking chairs, and books. Nothing works. If I could get her to start sleeping at 9 then I think we'd all have a better night. Suggestions would be appreciated, I'm ready to try just about anything!
Today my Aunt Diana is going to come over to go shopping with us - I desperately need "transition" jeans and it's really difficult to shop solo when I have the baby. If I had 8 arms, everything would be much easier.
