Finally an Update!

September was such a busy month that most of it is a blur. We had mandatory overtime and occasional weekends for the entire month. Which means after sitting in front of the computer for 10 hours a day, the last thing I wanted to do is go home and sit in front of the computer. As if that weren’t exhausting enough, Lina decided that sleeping through the night was highly overrated.

Anyway, we now have 3 more teeth, giving us a total of 8. 2 of them arrived on the same day and the 3rd showed up a few days later. You would think that would end the whole waking up in the middle of the night thing, but it didn’t. She has also had to adjust to being in a big girl bed. She climbed out about 30 seconds after we put her down for her afternoon nap one day, so her bed was converted to the toddler bed that evening.

Putting her down for sleep has been pretty easy. Keeping her in bed in the middle of the night proved to be the tricky part. The first night I’m pretty sure she walked out of bed. It took her a few nights to learn that she couldn’t walk around in her bed anymore. Now she has mastered safely getting out of bed and more importantly, getting back in.

Last week she received her very first hair cut and was not at all pleased about it. She cried and fought so hard that we got kicked out of the room. After we left, Lina sat in her chair and cried. But at least she sat still so Peggy could give her an adorable little bob.

But perhaps the biggest news of all is that Lina has a new cousin! Lina of course wants to hold her and love on her just like she does her baby dolls. Which means she is most definitely not allowed to hold her!
