Now Miss Cailyn has caused some drama for us for the last 10 nights!! This kid has slept in her crib since we returned home from India, and since two months, through the night. 10 days ago, she decided there was to be no more of the easy peasy bed time rituals! She does not want to be in her crib, and when she does fall asleep and stay in her crib, it is somewhat short lived. She wakes at 1am, 3am, 5am. Needless to say we have a tired mommy. Somehow, her days are not affected by this and she continues to stay on her normal nap routine, with smiles all day! Not sure how we are gonna fix this, but we are trying!
Cailyn clearly now says many words. She says Hi, Bye, HEY, Hi Dada and I love you. She says Hi Dada to me alot...gotta work on the word MOMMA. Everyone who spends time with her is quite fascinated that she is using words at such a young age.
Up until about 6 months of age, I really felt like Cailyn was temporary in our life. I guess the reality of her existence did not actually sink in until recently. The damage to my emotional state is apparently quite deep, deeper than I consciously know. Fortunately, the last few weeks have me seeing her as a permanent part of our life, I mean, our daughter! It is really nice to be taking these small steps to healing the broken parts of my brain and heart.
Cailyn has lots of groovy pants, and it is alot of fun dressing her up everyday!
