All About Bean – 10/4

I mentioned in an earlier post, Bean hates sleeping. I think she is afraid she is going to miss out on something so she will often times fight sleep with everything she has. This also includes waking up in the middle of the night to check and make sure nothing is going on. She wakes up and squirms and cries so we go in and take her out of the nursery (so she doesn’t wake Kylie) and bring her out to the couch in the living room. She isn’t hungry, she isn’t wet, she doesn’t have a burp so as soon as she sees nothing is going on she goes right back to sleep… within like a minute or two. But she does this sometimes 4-5 times a night. So much for getting a good nights sleep! If we didn’t have twins we would probably just let her work it out herself in the crib, especially since we know she doesn’t need anything, but it isn’t fair for the Bear to be woken up all the time. This is making it into today’s post because last night was one of those 4-5 time kinda nights. Hopefully it is something we will get figured out one of these days. 🙂

In other news…. Lissie pulled herself up to standing all on her own! The day I got the new crib set up we let the girls sit and play in it for a little bit while we enjoyed some ice cream. We have it set up with some toys and stuffed animals since we are not using it as a sleeping crib for the time being. Anyways, Russell was sitting on the floor and I was sitting on the bed, Bean and Bear were in the crib and out of nowhere Alyssa grabbed onto the railing and just pulled herself up. She stood there for almost a minute on her own just looking around. She didn’t seem surprised or proud of herself or anything. She just stood there like it was nothing!

According to Baby Center, pulling oneself to standing is an advanced skill for babies 8 months old.  Advanced meaning only a few kids can do it. I was SOOO proud. Go Bean!

  4. […] climb up all over people. Legs, arms, chests- it is all fair game when she is around. And not to be upstaged by her sister, Kylie also decided to pull herself into the standing position… even if it required a little […]
