Week 40: Introducing the Pikler Triangle

I know, I used this for the Week 40 Coffee Digest. Apparently this is the only actual picture I took of Ambrose and Cow Peril. I’ll take an updated picture tomorrow to show the progress.

I’ll keep this short, because it’s almost 9 p.m. and I’m exhausted because¬†someone in this house hasn’t slept well the past two nights. Teething, man. It’s not for the faint of heart.

Do I give a recommendation for the single book that turned sleep around in our house? Do I write about my favorite postpartum baskets, even though it’s been nearly nine months since I gave birth, and I’m dealing with new things like blossoming mobility and hours upon hours of whining? Our approach to solids? (Quips about lentils that have been through entire digestive systems AND multiple laundry cycles and have still held up? For your sake, I won’t continue.)
