.........................it's not the case.
I realize Marin hasn't been a big part in this blog so far, so I would like to report that she has officially said her first word: "Mama". Her favorite time to use it is when she's really tired and wants to go nigh-night. Which, by the way, we need to work on. Last night she fell quietly asleep in Bob's arms (after 6 oz. of formula), but she usually needs to be rocked to sleep. How did this happen?? Ellery always fell asleep in her crib (it must of been the numerous baby books we read) . It's interesting how the second child is raised so differently. We are more relaxed, Marin's schedule is more relaxed, she is more relaxed, except when she is placed in her crib to fall asleep on her own. This is when I would like to be more like my friend Audra. The ultimate scheduler. Not only does she schedule everything, she KEEPS to the schedule. It's truly an amazing thing to watch, even more amazing to see her daughter, Vivi, fall asleep within seconds of being placed in her crib and stay asleep! Maybe, I could find 20 minutes to begin reading those baby books again. Who am I kidding, that is not going to happen! I'm sure Marin will become an independent little girl soon enough. I think I'm actually enjoying this rocking thing. She is my last babe and I'm not going to have the chance again!
