Hattie gets up every morning around 6 a.m. It has been an adjustment for Sean and me, but now we are pretty "trained" because in the rare event that she sleeps in until 7 a.m., Sean and I are still usually up and out of bed by 6:15. I guess you could say that Hattie sleep trained us.
Hattie's usually in the best of moods in the morning, and it really is a joy to go and get her from her crib, even though it's 6 a.m. in the morning and the sun isn't even up yet. I recently taught her how to smile on command. I tell her, "Smile," and she does - a great thing for picture taking! So this morning I went into her room at 6:15 a.m. (I was up at 5 a.m. and could not go back to sleep - why, oh why!?!?). I brought the camera with me and got lots of smiley, goofy Hattie pictures.
Of course Sean and I are totally worried about falling back an hour tonight with the time change. Not quite sure what to do to avoid her getting up at 5 a.m. tomorrow. One would think keeping her up later would help her sleep in, but this usually isn't the case. She usually still wakes at the same time but just a little grumpy from not getting ample sleep. Perhaps, my body is helping me get ready for the early morning tomorrow, and that's why I was up at 5 a.m. today!
Happy Saturday all!
