So far, not too much going on this week. However, Lola is rolling around like crazy. She loves it!!! You put her on her back and within seconds she'll be on her stomach. It's so cute until she started doing it at night.
When we lay Lola down at night, we put her on her back. She'll immediately roll to her side. I decided that the girl loves sleeping on her side so I should stop being an overly conscientious parent when she does this. SIDS has been one of my biggest fears since day one. It's really weird....I think we are really laid back parents but when it comes to anything that can cause SIDS I pretty much obsess over it. So, it was hard for me to finally let go and just let Lola sleep on her side. Of course now that she loves rolling onto her stomach my panic has picked back up.
Over the past couple nights, we'll wake up to check on Lo and she'll be on her belly with her face buried in the mattress. I'm telling you....if freaks both me and Clay out!!! With this happening and my SIDS obsession, I've been waking up at least every hour to check on Lola to make sure she is still on her back....it's been exhausting!!! I'm not real sure what to do about this or if we should even be concerned (Anyone who has an opinion....please let me know). Anyway, I received a frantic call from Clay on Sunday. Lola had been napping and he walked in to check on her and (once again) she was on her belly with her face smushed into the mattress. He panicked and frantically picked her up and she woke up screaming. I decided that if we were ever going to get sleep again, we would have to do something about this. So, I ran to BRU and got there 1 minute before the doors closed. Now we're using a positioner. It seems to be working pretty well so far but I have a feeling it won't be too long before she figures out how to tackle the positioner. It seems she'll find a way to roll on that stomach no matter what it takes. Please....anyone....advice....
I haven't mentioned another milestone. Over the past couple of weeks Lola began recognizing her name. It's so cool that when we call her name she'll actually turn her head. Exciting!!! We're also going to give cereal a try this week. We'll make sure and post pics.
