Baby Steps

13 Feb

Good news: Lucy was much less of a fussy bunny during the day yesterday!  After getting up for good at 11 am (!) she was in a great mood almost all day, which emboldened me to try my nap-in-the-crib plan.

Around 1 pm, I swaddled her and put her in her crib.  She was having none of the swaddle, so I gave up and kept her arms free.  She was fine for a while — not sleeping, but quietly continuing in her ongoing effort to eat her hands:

My hands are delicious.

However, when she caught on to the fact that I was going to leave her alone in the room and try to have her sleep, she was not a happy camper.  I was scared at setting a bad tone for the rest of the day, so I moved her to the nap station in her Pack n’ Play and she slept for 45 minutes.

Around 4 pm, my mom was over and we wore Lucy out with a good tummy time session so I decided to try again.  My mom inadvertently changed the sound machine from white noise to classical music, and Lucy quieted down immediately!  She then fell asleep in the crib and slept for 45 minutes (yes, I dared to take a photo):

I heart classical music – who knew?

Nighttime was another story, with us trying to put her to bed in her bassinet at 9 pm and her not falling asleep for the night till 11 pm, but we are trying!   To be continued…
