At least she's sleeping...

After resolving to keep Hallie in the crib until some time after this baby arrives and not worrying about the "baby's" room, I have been relaxed at least about not having to do anything in that room. My main focus with Hallie has been getting her back into a good sleep routine. We have had mostly good nights over the last two weeks, with a few early morning wake-ups, but she is still resisting naps. In order to have her nap at a regular time, I have to get her in bed pretty early because she will stay awake for almost an hour in her bed every time. She is not usually crying, but playing and talking, singing and jumping. And stripping. When I decided to let her stay in this room/bed for sleep times, I put the side back on the crib so that she would not be able to get out of bed and have access to all the stuff on the changing table. So, as you can see, while she is contained, she still finds ways to manipulate the situation. This is today after an hour of doing what she does. When she got quiet, I peeked in to see the damage. I wonder if she's cold? At least she hung on to the diaper, maybe she was trying to get it back on, I don't know.

I remember someone putting a full zip sleeper on their kids, oh it was Jill I think. Then putting a safety pin at the top so they couldn't unzip it to get naked and "dirty" themselves at nap time. I feel for you girl! Have anyone puke in your car this week?
