I finally tried rice cereal. She HATES it. Hates hates hates it. But I love love love it. While eating she cries and cries and cries. The first night, I did it at 7 PM, and I couldn't get her to take a bottle (surprise, surprise), so it was kind of a failure. Starting Friday night, I did it around 4 - 5 PM, and she would then sleep for a little bit while we got Cam ready for bed and had our own dinner. Then we'd do her bath and give her a bottle, she'd sleep for 4 -5 hours - get another bottle, and then sleep for SEVEN HOURS.
That's right. I said 7 hours.
I feel bad that she cries when I give it to her, but she isn't turning away - it's like she hates having it in her mouth. Each time gets a little better, so I soldier on. 5 minutes of crying is worth it to me if I get 7 hours of sleep.
Have I mentioned that she slept 7 hours in a row?
In other news, I took her to the childcare at the local gym, and she did awesome. I've been working out almost every day this past week and I feel awesome. I'm so excited to be getting my body back (not the SHAPE but at least the control over what I do with it).
