View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
S and I are far more on the same page than I thought. We had a nice evening yesterday Ė dinner together outside, while Ellen slept and Will threw the ball and played with Ripple. Thatís really all Iím looking for.
Will has the most amazing throwing arm Ė heís left handed, too, which S tells me is in demand in the major leagues (insert eye roll here). While I refuse to be yet another American parent who pushes sports as the only arena for my son to excel in, I am VERY impressed with his speed, accuracy, and determination. And, he looks like such a natural in a baseball cap.
My little-little is getting so good at grabbing objects and putting them into her mouth. If she is on her back, her whole body gets into the effort, and she ends up nearly rolling over she is so focused on the motion. She is SO not making progress with sleeping at night, though. She has gone from regular 6 hours stretches to 3.5 at the most and doesnít show any signs of lengthening them. Not sure what to do. I donít think there is anything we can do until she is about 6 months old, at which point her body is probably able to go 7+ hours without food, and at which point we can think about whether or not we can stand letting her cry it out a bit.
