As I mentioned in the last post, the baby is movin' and groovin'! She has started to crawl, or rather, "worm" along the floor at record speeds. We've pretty much given up on the whole playmat thing as she doesn't stay on it for very long. There's just too much to see and do! So instead, we place a king size bedsheet on the floor, scatter toys, and just lay her down on one corner. My dad likes to joke that she has a magnetic compass in her brain like a bird since she's been moving in one direction only, which usually tends to be towards the kitchen since Mommy is usually in there these days. I watched her scoot backwards Saturday morning though, so our prediction for full on crawl has really good odds at this point. She's really starting to get the hang of moving along.
Sleeping has become quite a challenge here in the Guerra household. We were sleep training according to the Ferber method which was working for a little while, but now the baby wakes up about 2 or 3 times a night, which has been very frustrating for Michael and I. The weird thing is though that she falls asleep almost instantly when we lay her down at bedtime, but once she wakes up at 12 or 1 am, it's all downhill from there. We think she might be beginning to teethe which makes for very unpleasant sleeping conditions. We're hoping that this passes soon so that we can get more than two hours of sleep at a time. I miss the days of being able to sleep even just four hours at a time!
Day care search is still ongoing. It sounds like we might have found an inhome day care for the baby, but we won't know until next Monday when we interview her and see her house. I'm hoping and praying that she is the one we've been looking for since our options are very slim and running out!
Well, that's about it for now. We'll post more later. I've added a couple more pictures to the Picasa album and the video attached is of Sybilla scooting along. Please enjoy, and as always...
Until next time! Kelly & the Gang
