8 O'Clock And All's Well!

Still pregnant.

I taught Sierra an interesting little trick a couple of weeks ago I thought I'd share with you.

She's always been a fabulous sleeper - straight through the night from about six weeks old and on. On the very rare occasion she woke us up we didn't know what to do with ourselves. She was also not ever an early riser, waking at 8:30 or 9 or even later. Sierra still has a two hour nap every day too. Yeah, as my Oma repeatedly tells me, we're spoiled royally in this department.
These last couple of months she has begun waking up earlier in the morning, between 7 and 8. She knocks very loudly on her door when she's awake to wake us/me up. (Her bedroom door sticks a little when the nob is turned one way and that happens to be the way she turns it so she can't open her door herself) Eight in the morning I am more than okay with, 7 is pushing it on the early side. Especially with my tired, lazy pregnant self. At first we could tell her to wait until it was light outside but with the days getting increasingly longer that ceased to work very quickly.
So here's what I did. I bought a cheap digital clock and showed her that she couldn't knock on her bedroom door in the morning until the first number said 8.
She has done that ever since!
I have such a smart kid.

Everyone thought I was crazy for even thinking up such an idea, who's laughing now?

I think thats a fabulous idea! I was actually thinking of that myself the other day. Im working FT still so Carter is use to getting up at 645 am everyday! I hate it on my days off. So Im thinking that trick may need to come into effect on my mat leave! When was your due date?
