Linna is still such a good baby, but we've definitely ventured into some uncharted territory the past few days. We're not sure if Linna is teething, but bed time has tuned into such a chore. Linna used to go down so easily around 10pm or so (we put her to bed when we go to bed to get a full 8 hours of sleep), and she'd sleep until 10am or so.
Lately, she's been waking up earlier, which is to be expected, so we started putting her down around 9pm. The 9pm bed time has tuned into an hour or more ordeal and she's so fussy. She eats about 5 oz. (still exclusively breast fed from a bottle) or more before bed, and is obviously tired, but it's like she can't "turn it off" and fall asleep. It looks like one of her lower canine teeth is coming in, but she doesn't have a fever, isn't fussy during the day, etc. It's just at night. Last night, she finally fell asleep at 10:30pm, fussed at 4:30am, 5am, 7am, and is still sleeping at 9am. I don't get her out of the crib, but I go in pat her put and she sucks on her fingers until she falls back asleep. I think we're going to try an earlier bed time and once we talk to the pediatrician, we may start her on rice cereal. I don't want to start until 6 months, but if she's ready and hungry we will try it! She does really well with naps throughout the day and is kind of on her own little schedule. If she wants a long nap, she takes one. If she wants a cat nap, she'll take one.

I really think Linna is starting to look SO MUCH like her papa, and other people are noticing it as well. I also see myself in her, but she is literally a female version of Papa Saigh
What do you think?
|First time on Santa's lap. She was so|
calm, cool and collected about this!
Bath time with Linna may be one of my favorite things ever. I take baths with Linna every other day, and she just LOVES the tub. If we put her on her tummy she tires to swim, and if she's on her back, she kicks and puts her hands in her mouth to suck off the water. She's such a little fish.
