|Linna Saigh at 21 months old. Growing up so fast!|
Linna is still a saint in the sleep department, going to bed around 7:30/8 p.m., and not waking up until 8 a.m. or so. Even if she gets up at 7:30 a.m., she just plays in her crib until we go in and get her. We are SO thankful for this! There are some nights when we put her to bed at 8 p.m., and we can hear her playing in her crib until 9 p.m. or so. Crazy girl! She's also still taking anywhere between a 1.5 - 3 hour nap each afternoon. We've learned that she can skip her nap all together every now and then, and she'll completely pass out at 7 p.m. and sleep through the night. It's nice to have this as an option, so our day isn't always cut short for nap time. I do enjoy my couple hours of quiet during the day so I can get things done, but it's also nice to be out and about all day long. Linna will sleep in her stroller, but I can get a longer nap out of her by having her sleep in her bed. Speaking of beds, some people have asked me about when we'll be transitioning Linna into a toddler bed. Honestly, not any time soon. As long as Linna is sleeping comfortably in her crib, we're not in any hurry to get her into a toddler bed. Yes, it will be cute to have her in a "big girl" bed, but she hasn't tried climbing out of her crib yet, so we'll keep her "trapped" as long as we can:)
Linna's appetite has significantly increased too. I'm often shocked by how much this little girl can eat in a single meal. She will still skip a meal, and snack all day instead, but she's pretty much consistently eating at least one big meal a day. Linna is also drinking lots of whole milk every day, so I'm not worried when she doesn't eat. We have tons of hot dogs left over from my birthday BBQ, so this has become one of her favorites. I hate the idea of her eating hot dogs, because who KNOWS what's REALLY in them. So once these hot dogs are gone, I will be searching for a hot dog alternative (veggie dogs, etc.). Any suggestions???

Linna and I head back to Minnesota for an almost 2-month visit on June 26th, and we are really excited to see our friends and family! We even get to make a little visit to Paris along the way (we have an 8 and 13 hour layover in Paris on the way to Minnesota and back to Singapore). Slowly building up this little lady's passport:) See you soon MN peeps!
