Yesterday, my mom and grandmother stopped by bearing gifts for Haruka. She received tons more clothes and other things. But the one thing that was a real god send was the cradle.
At first, I didn’t think we needed it, but Haruka seemed to really like a lot, even more than the mobile that she got the day before. Yesterday she slept for five hours in it. Eventually, I had to wake her up because she went beyond her feeding time. And surprisingly she wasn’t cranky when I woke her. She drank her milk, whimpered a bit, then went right back to sleep.
I went to the store and bought some batteries for the cradle so that rocks her sleep automatically. She really liked that a lot. She stared at the little stuffed figures that rotated above her for several minutes and then went right to sleep.
She was a bit cranky last night and this morning, so I put her back in her cradle and she went right back to sleep. She’s been asleep for about 4 hours now, and so it’s almost time to wake her up again. Haruka is usually the one to let us now when she needs to be fed, but with this cradle, it seems that she would sleep right through the day if we didn’t wake her up.
