I will eventually be on time with one of these posts. Little (not so little) Quinny is 20 weeks old (as of June 20).
This week has been a big week for little Miss Quinny. As you may have figured out from my last few posts we have been struggling with sleep. I am very tired all the time, and can’t seem to muster up enough energy to work out or cook dinner.
Well a few nights ago I decided I was going to start sleep training. We had a lot of success letting Liam cry it out, but this time it is a little trickier. Liam and Quinn’s rooms are across the hall from each other, so we have to find a balance of crying it out so we don’t wake Liam up. Thankfully, both kids are heavy sleepers and we have 2 sound machines. She woke up at around 11:30 and I was not having it, so I asked Erik to go in and just rub her back for a little while until she fell asleep again. He was in there for maybe five minutes rubbing her back before she fell asleep again! I was convinced she was going to wake up again in an hour but thankfully she slept until 2 am! She ate, I changed her diaper and she fell back asleep, until around 4:30. It’s the 4:30 wake up call that is killing me. I don’t think she needs to eat again at 4:30, but I also don’t want her screaming and waking Liam up that early. I gotta figure out what to do.
Man it is a good thing she is cute! I am starting to think about feeding her solids, because she is getting increasingly interested in our food. I have no idea when it is going to happen but soon(ish) I guess. I have to order her high chair first. I do know that I am going to start with avocado this time around and bypass the rice/oatmeal cereal stage. Alright friends that is all I have for you all today!
Have a great day!
