Alex is starting to really respond and interact more now. Talia can get him to laugh and smile pretty easily. He's not crying in the car as much and responds somewhat to singing and stimulation if he does start crying. Once he really gets going though there is still no stopping him. A daytime nap schedule seems to have evolved as well with a very predictable 30-60 minute nap around 9:30/ 10 am and shorter ones at 1:15 and then again at 4:30. With Talia out of school this past week and Ron around more it's been easier to work around Alex's nap schedule but I just know that once school starts again I'm going to be dragging Alex around town to drop of T, pick her up, and get some actual STUFF done when she is in school. (No way was I taking TWO kids shopping if I could avoid it!) Poor second kid.
36 year old mother to 6 1/2 year old Talia, 3 yr old Alex, and 7 month old Shayna. I retired from Pediatric Intensive Care Nursing in 2007. My family moved from Philadelphia to Madison, Wisconsin in July 07. I love to craft, quilt, cook and read. Spending time with my kids is ok too! In the last few years I've gotten into green living by trying to eat local, compost, cloth diaper and garden. As a family we are enjoying exploring Madison and transitioning from being East Coast people to Midwesterners. (Updated 09/10)
