And I am a firm believer in Babywise. After following its principles, Abigail is a model Babywise little girl. She's sleeping and oh so much happier now that I've finally worked naps into her routine (before I let Abigail decide when she wanted to fall asleep...it didn't work and I always had a crabby baby on hand). It is best for both of our moods:)
I'm also a firm believer in Mylicon. She is much happier, far less fussy in the evenings (and passes her gas to her hearts content).
And as far as Abigail's little blossoming personality, she is become very inquisitive. As I nursed her this afternoon, she spent much of the time distracted, looking around the room, smiling up at me, and trying to suck her thumb and nurse at the same time (nope honey, you can't have the best of both worlds...). It sure is fun to watch her grow up.
And on a side note -- Rodney and I recently discovered http://www.pandora.com/ . This afternoon, I typed in "George Winston" and have been listening to lovely piano music. But we enjoyed a Sara Groves mix this morning before church and a country music mix last night. You type in an artist you enjoy, and you get an interesting mix of music. You can then rate the music (thumbs up or down). We've enjoyed "no-commercial" radio here in the Harms house:)
So that's all for today...I have laundry to fold...and smoothies and popcorn to make for dinner (yum).
