Robin slept through the night again. My brain doesn't believe it, but my body does: I am no longer waking up completely at 2 am and 4 am as I have been. Sometimes she's getting up really early, but I'm not complaining. Hoping this is a real trend that will continue. Loving it.

Holly is refusing bottles and sippies from the sitter. I don't know what to do. I wish she was a little older so I could leave some solids for her, but that's a month away. I guess I will probably have to work from home and hope that once she hits 6 months, she likes solids enough to get through the morning. She isn't inconsolable or even super fussy, she just doesn't want a bottle and eventually she gets really hungry. She's also almost completely off the pacifier: she only takes it from me, when she's completely relaxed and nearly asleep, and I do it just so I don't have to lie there with my boob in her mouth until she's completely out.

Her naps are weird. She's dropped an evening nap entirely. She's up from about 3:30 until bedtime at 7:30. She still takes a morning nap, and then may or may not take a late morning nap depending on if I'm home (if not, no dice). She naps twice in the mid-afternoon. Really, what she needs is a long morning nap and a long afternoon nap (by long I mean more than 45 minutes!). I tried the whole "go in before she wakes up to nurse her" thing a few weeks ago and it didn't really work, so I quit before I got frustrated unnecessarily. May try it again, though, at least with the naps I'm around for. But I'm hopeful, hopeful... having a real bedtime routine has already reduced her wakings between her bedtime and mine to one brief one, so that's good.

Sleep. The topic of my life.
