Next week is going to be fun

Work has kicked up a notch, and I am getting quite excited.

Sophie seems to be quite happy still. We're having a nice weekend together. I invited random Park Avenue Neighbours to come around to try out our new barbeque. It should be fun.

It's all quiet now whilst Sophie sleeps. Her sleeping schedule (for those who are interested!) is...
morning nap 8 - 10am
afternoon nap 2 -3 pm
night sleep - 6:30pm till the next morning at 6:30am

It's more or less clockwork, give or take 30 minutes. I like her 6:30am waking up time because it gives me enough time to breast-feed her, play for a while, shower, have breakfast together, and leave for work at 7:45am. It's a nice morning routine that we have going, and I intend to keep nursing her for as long as she wants to.

6.30pm to 6.30am?! You are soooo lucky.

It's almost nothing to do with luck! It's mostly all down to training. She's been sleeping
like that since she was 7 or 8 months old. And although it caused me alot of hassle initially to maintain her sleep/nap scheduling, I think all the effort seems to have paid off. Anyone can do it. You just need patience in bucket fulls. Sheer bloody minded persistence and a faith that you are doing the right thing for your child also helps. Especially when you have to stand outside the door and listen to her cry (and cry a little yourself too). But it was the right thing to do for us at least.
