Just like boxing
I can't say enough good things about this one. She is the sweetest little baby and just makes life better. I can only say one negative thing- she is not a good sleeper! Sophie is 6 1/2 months now and she was up every two hours last night! Before we went to bed, I told Bobby, "it's Mommy vs. Sophie tonight." Let me explain: Sophie has always preferred sleeping with her mommy, and since we got back from California, she's been sleeping with me every night. I've been complacent, mostly because I'm too tired at night to care, but also because she's been sleeping on my chest and it feels really nice. But enough's enough! So this morning Bobby asked how the battle went, and I said that I won round 1 and round 2, meaning she slept in her crib from 8 PM - midnight, and then from 12:30 - 2:30, but that she won round 3 and round 4 because I let her sleep with me until she woke up again at 4:30 and and at 7:00. Bobby said, "there's only one round, Katherine. It's just like boxing. It's all one round and there can only be one winner. So who won the battle, Katherine."
Me, with just a hint of self-pity: "Sophie."
