The Interview

I know several other moms (Nicole’s is here and I think Nicole B. did it awhile back too) have “interviewed” their kiddos, so I thought I would give it a try.  It was just a joke with Lucy – definitely too little.  

Here are Norah’s answers (with my thoughts in italics):

Sleeping Beauty

I tend to worry a little when the girls sleep in later than normal – thinking one of them is getting sick.  Now, don’t get your hopes up – Lucy was still up extra early this morning!!  It is 9 and Norah is still sleeping.  I realize with the time change that her body thinks it is 8, but even 8 is late for her these days when her 2 year sister wakes her everyday!! 

I am hoping she is just catching up on some MUCH needed sleep!  We had our small group Bible study at our house last night and with the time change we let the girls stay up later.  We have a new couple, Ric and Liz, who started last night and they have a 2 year old little girl who came to play too!  
We don’t have anywhere to go today – so Norah can sleep as late as she wants!!

She CAN. NOT. Be. Trusted!

In Daphne’s room, that is.  Lucy has become a pacifier thief!  If we can’t find a paci, she usually knows where some extras are – but they must be washed first because they have probably been in her mouth.  In case you don’t recall – or are a new reader to my blog – Lucy doesn’t even take a paci.  She sucks her fingers.  She has some weird fascination with Daphne’s pacifiers!!!  There is always atleast one paci in Daphne’s bed – usually because when she wakes up she is happy and doesn’t need the paci.

We have learned that if we don’t hear/see Lucy for a while, she is probably is Daphne’s room.  Today, the girls wanted to go outside so I sent Lucy upstairs to get socks while I pulled Norah’s hair up.  After about 2 minutes I decided to make sure she was obeying.  I called up the stairs and asked Lucy if she was in Daphne’s room.  She said no, however, I did not believe her so I asked her what she was doing.  She said, “I have a paci in my bed.”  Translation – I WAS in Daphne’s room, but now I am in my room with the stolen paci.  The only paci in Daphne’s bed is the one that was in her mouth when I put her in bed.  (Lucy told me later that the paci was actually in Daphne’s mouth anymore.)  Daphne had been sleeping soundly for about 45 minutes and probably wasn’t going to wake up for another 30 minutes or so.  
I remind her not to take the paci’s out of Daphne’s bed and send her outside.  
Meanwhile, Daphne starts crying hard so I go upstairs to check on her.  She usually sleeps on a lap pad in her crib so when she spits up or pees out, I just have to change the lap pad – not the sheet every time.  When I check Daphne, she and the lap pad are scrunched up in the corner of the crib – meaning Lucy grabbed the lap pad and pulled it towards her so she could reach the paci.
Lucy ended up in time out, but really doesn’t care.  The temptation is just too great – she will gladly take the punishment.  

6 Weeks Old!

Daphne was 6 weeks on Saturday!  

Highlights at 6 weeks:
– Daphne is consistently going 5 1/2 hours at night between feedings (Went 6 hours last
– She is smiling at Daddy all the time!
– Turning her head towards familiar voices
– Ooh’s and Aah’s
– During tummy time, she lifts her head up and turns her head side to side
– Daphne has finally started wearing 0-3 month clothes!!  Goodbye newborn sleepers!!

Ignore the baby acne-but check out that hair!

Smiling face!
