Not to jinx it …

I think it’s been long enough to be an unjinxable pattern (see what I did there? I totally jinxed it) – Monica has gone to bed without crying for four nights in a row. It’s my new favorite thing in life. She just thrives on consistency. Bedtime is the same every night, and she totally figured it out. As soon as her bottle is done, she turns around and lies on my shoulder. When I stand up and walk to the crib, she leans down to get in. It’s a beautiful thing.

Also, as of today, Miss Monica has been with us for 7 weeks. I’m here to tell you that, apparently, 7 weeks is approximately the time it takes me to feel completely acclimated to something new. Monica is a part of our lives and the routine as smoothly as if she always has been.

Since I know why you’re all really visiting my blog, a few pictures:

Reading Curious George on the couch.

Her new favorite activity - looking out the window.

Seriously, she'd do this for hours. If she is not at the window and suddenly remembers it's her favorite place, she will forcefully point to the window and demand (via a shout) that we take her there. It's actually very cute.

  1. You 3 are amazing ( I’m including Queen Sheba here ) !!
    Her hair is tufted, her eye lashes are longer; she has just thrived in your care.
    And, she follows Shebs pattern, looking out the window. Shows her curiosity and interest in learning and exploring.She has progressed leaps and bounds in your care.
    No matter what happens, keep that with you always, always, to warm your hearts.
