Every night I say I'll update the blog tomorrow. I guess we know where that has gotten me! It has been several days since my last post. We made it home from Georgia in one piece. Lilli did OK on the way home. She got really mad when we hit the KY state line. Thank goodness she worked herself up and wore herself out. She slept for the last hour and half of the trip. The only draw back to that was it was 5:45 P.M. We got home around 7:00 P.M. She didn't stay up too late. I think she was asleep by 10:30 and didn't move a muscle until 8:00 the next morning. All in all I'm glad we made the trip. We are planning a New Orleans trip for sometime in November and I know she will do fine! It just takes a little bit of entertaining and knowing when we have HAVE to stop.

Nothing else much is going on. She has a molar that is all the way in and about four other teeth poking their angry heads through her gums. I can't believe what a good mood she is in despite all of that! She has been a bit clingy, but can you blame her?

The weather here is starting to cool off and I have to concentrate on finding fall clothes for the peewee. She is definitely wearing 18 mos on top, but she has no behind so she is still wearing 12 mos on the bottom. It makes buying coordinated outfits a bit challenging. Thank goodness for Target and their fleece separates!

On the sleep front, I am reading a book that is giving me lots of good info on how to get Lilli in her own bed. I am no longer rocking her to sleep, but I still must be beside her for her to get to sleep. I am thinking of sitting in the rocker in the room while she falls asleep and gradually moving out of the room. Then I think I will try the crib again. Stopping the rocking has made a huge difference in my stress level at bed time. I feel like we are making progress!

I'm off to have lunch with my sil. I'll post more pics soon!

The book is called Sleeping Through the Night. I'll have to find the author and post it later.
