all the time she's awake baby Heidi wants me to hold her. I can do a lot of things with one hand but not everything!
Isaac is of course very jealous. He had Paul holding him in church today which he usually loves, but instead kept holding his arms out to me. I tried to give Heidi to Paul but she just screamed.
Last night I put her in her cot to sleep and came downstairs for my pizza even though she was crying. She cried herself into a distraught state so I went back up and she'd cried so much the bed and her were covered with vomit (time to bring in Paul!)
Then I remembered the social worker mentioning (among the horrendous other history) that she had been left alone for 9 hours one day. SO I guess being alone brings real thoughts of abandonment for her and I now have an excuse to leave all the housework and sit on the bed while she falls off to sleep.
I so hope the baby sling I ordered from trade me arrives tomorrow!
I have just discovered that sitting her in a high chair in front of a praise baby DVD also keeps her happy for a while - long enough for me to type this post with two hands.
