Lola has been really good lately. She still comes in our room every night but I've decided not to worry about it. I think it will all work out and I don't want to force anything right now. The more and more I talk to other parents, it seems they have and/or had the same problem with their toddler(s) at one point. My brother was the same way...never really slept and always went to my parents room in the middle of the night. The other day I asked my dad how old Adam was when he finally stopped waking up to come to their room. His comment was "We decided we should put a stop to it when he started shaving." I cracked up! That is a little over-exaggeration (I picked this trait up from my dad) but he did go into their room until he was like 8 yrs old I think. Anyway, this is just one of those things I'm hoping will work its way out and I really hope it's long before Lola is 8 yrs old. Yikes!
Lola also still seems super excited about the baby. Of course, she doesn't clearly understand what is about to happen but she's always asking about him and wants to touch my belly. She tells everyone "Baby brother will be here three August." I continue to correct her and clarify that it's August 30th but she insist on saying "three August"....that's ok....I'll take any date in August. AND, we still don't have names. We continue to talk about it but haven't quite come up with anything to put on a short list. Not real sure what to do about that...should be interesting what we end up coming up with!
