It's been so busy that I've missed a few months, with birthdays, holidays, work schedules, and orchestra practice getting in the way.
Jane has made some huge improvements the last few months... Here are some of my favorites:
RE-BINKYING! That's a real word, right? Jane needed to re-learn how to fall asleep on her own after her illness back in November. This led to a few sleepless nights, plenty of crying, AND she can now put her binky back in her mouth! This has her sleeping 12-13 hours straight most nights! We are big fans, and I think everyone is better for it.
SLEEPING: Jane hasn't cried out at night for months! I love sleeping all night! Usually, she goes to bed around 6:30, wakes up around 7/7:30 and takes an hour nap around 10, and a 1-2 hour nap around 2. I'm a huge fan of the afternoon nap because it overlaps the twins' nap. This means I often get a full hour with only William awake. And since he is almost always playing with Legos, this is my most productive time of the day.
PEOPLE: Jane is not really a people person. Parties and loud gatherings make her cry. In fact, for a few months, the only person she didn't cry with was me. If I try to hand her off to someone for a quick minute, it usually results in a very sad baby. If she had her way, Jane would be content for me to hold her all day. And many days, that's what we do. Our neighbor Max and his mom, Sophie are other favorites. She has since discovered Dad is not so bad, the grandparents are starting to grow on her. And siblings! When the mood strikes, Janie cannot get enough of her brothers and sister. They are super cute together and so happy.
