Emma's Not Doing Her Job
I've been Emma's Asian Nanny every Wednesday night for the last 5 or 6 months I love being Auntie Noodle . I rely on her to fill my desire-to-have-a-baby-void but last night Emma did not do her job!
So I've had the pleasure of watching Emma 4 nights in the last week
So our typical bed time routine
bath time to wash her dinner out of her hair
go to her room and change into pjs initiates the crying
turn all the lights off/low in the house to tell her its mellow time
give her a sippy cup of soy milk and look at books
when the soy is empty its the end of the world
7:15-7:30 down for bed with 5-10mins of crying.
Jenn already had her bath done.
I put on her pj's one arm/leg at a time while chasing her silly naked bum around the house
turned down all the lights
gave her the soy as she cuddled on my lap then moved to sitting at my feet.
the soy was out, THEN no crying... she just sat there and stared off into space.
Emma then turned around, looked at me, smiled and reached to be held.
we sat in the black chair and just hugged, i rocked her and rubbed her back, it was so peaceful and sweet.
I walked her to her room put her down in her bed and she didnt move!
I covered her with blankets and rubbed her back for a while and snuck out, NOT A SOUND!
asleep by 7:15!
THE MOST AMAZING LITTLE GIRL, SHE NEEDS HER COUSIN CHING TO BOSS AROUND!
ps. we had a fun time at the park this last weekend Saturday's weather was amazing. I took 300+ pictures with my new cheapy costco camera. It has a sepia setting. I'm avoiding going through them.
