The GIANT knot is on the right side of her forehead. Really, it is the entire right side. Kind of hard to tell in this picture.Forget that change thing, it is NOT good. Ashlyn apparently just took a couple of days to adjust and is now back to getting up between 6 and 7, though generally around 6:30. But, she has been on a nap STRIKE this week. We've had no naps since Monday, when she slept late. The first couple of days it wasn't a big deal, because she was still pleasant. Then, the lack of sleep hit her and she has been grumpy during the time when she should be napping, then into the evening. This morning, she woke up cranky. She had BETTER take a nap today. If I could choose between a child who slept until 8 but didn't nap and one who got up at 6 but napped every afternoon, I would take the child who napped. I like having the option to nap or read blogs when I'm not nursing (which is why I haven't been commenting much lately,) or work on my quilt, read or just whatever because that was generally me-time (if I could convince Christopher to nap at the same time.)
And, oh the child is MORE dramatic when she is tired. "I'm sad. I'm so sad." Why? "My daddy. My daddy is all gone." Daddy is not all gone. He is just on tdy for a bit. And this morning, she flipped out because she didn't have a fork to eat her waffles and whatever would she do? She knew where the fork was, go get it! Part of me wants to believe that this being dramatic is just a phase, but I think it may be part of her personality.
Ashlyn fell off of the couch headfirst on Sunday, though. She has a giant bump on her forehead. I thought she might have reinjured it during the night on Monday, because when she woke up on Tuesday the coloring was much worse.
Enjoying the sunshine
Christopher continues to be a easy going baby. No changes needed there. (Thank you!) He is starting to reach for his toys and make even more new noises.
