When Milestones Collide

As you know, I was the poster mother for crunchy granola with 'Salina.

While I still hold firm on a lot of what I did with her (breastfeeding, baby-wearing, pottying) with Paris, there are some things I am not so hardline with Paris (nappies, solids, cot).

'Salina developed her own routine during the day (and I was able to follow it easily - of course, it helps to not have to conform to ANYONE ELSE'S timetable there) but with Paris it has not been so easy (as I have whinged about previously).

In the last week, we have decided on a daytime routine and imposed it on her - partly to get her to sleep better, partly because from next week, there will be blocks of time when V has her by himself without access to the boob-solution.

She has taken it like a duck to water.

In fact, yesterday she had it so down pat, she wasn't letting a little offering of solids stand in the way of the 9.30am nap...

The kid is a fast learner. She's got her priorities straight, too.

Just love photos of them crashing and burning sitting in their high chair! Love it.
Go you with the daytime routine solution.
It just gets harder with subsequent babies to keep daytime routines when you have bigger kids to collect or take places, etc etc.

All I can say is it's a good thing I no longer have ovaries, because that cute little napper would have them screaming more! more!
