7/7/2011 7 Month Birthday

July 7th, 2011

On the 210th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Our plan to get more sleep back fired. We moved Maya’s bedtime snack to 10:30 instead of 11:00. So Maya woke up at 5:00 instead of 5:30. We were trying to make it to 6:00. Oh well. Back to the drawing board.

This morning Erin had to go to work so I got to spend some time with my baby girl. She didn’t fully wake up all morning but she wouldn’t stay asleep either. She talked most of the morning. Not crying or screaming just grousing. After Krissie showed up for lunch Maya got very quiet and fell into a deep sleep. Apparently she had been plotting a diaper assassination all morning, and all her grousing was just a warning. As soon as the diaper was dead Maya was fast asleep.

This evening Grandma Kathy came by to see Maya. Maya got a little sleep on the grandma time, and got her toe nails painted. After Grandma headed home we decided Maya needed a big girl bath. Maya has always hated bath time and it was suggested to us that one of us should get in the tub with her so that she could feel more supported. Since neither of us fit in the kitchen sink we decided on the bath tub. Since I don’t fit in the bath tub, Erin and Maya got to take a bath together. Maya’s negative reaction was much much less than in the kitchen sink. Hopefully we can get her used to being in water and bath time wont be such a fussy, snotty, screaming turning blue type of deal.

We are headed to bed now. We are going to try for her usual 11:00 feeding tonight, but a 6:00 feeding in the morning. I don’t know why 6:00 sounds so much better than 5:30. It can’t be just a half an hour that separate the two.
