After yesterday’s post… Maia slept in 2.5-3 hour long blocks through the night.
And now, she’s been pulling the 60-90 min long naps all through the day.
That’s cool though, I can totally deal with this.
Earlier today she woke up and screamed after only 10 minutes, so I picked her up and laid her against me like she was in the carrier (with her back to my front, one hand supporting her bum and the other holding under her arms), then bounced around the house. She was out like a light in literally two minutes. As I settled down into my glider rocker, the dogs ran over and started whining to go out, so I asked Chris to take them. He said he’d take the baby instead and I could take the dogs. Kind of a shit deal in my humble opinion, but, fresh air can’t hurt me… so as I handed her over to him, I teasingly said, “I hope she screams for you!”
As I headed out the front door, she screamed (I think she was gassy, since she’d woken up twice before that with a scream, not the slow sort of fussiness & whimpering as usual). SEVERAL minutes later when I came back in with the dogs, she was still screaming. Whoops. I didn’t actually mean that I wanted her to holler at her daddy the whole time…
