My name is Melissa and my daughter, Emma Marie was born on Aug. 16th, 2008.
She is my 2nd child..my first is a boy and his name is Collin Nikolai, he is now 2-1/2 years old. It is nice having one of each, but having 2 kids at home really keeps you busy!! =) We are currently living in South Germany...I am American (I am from Portland, Oregon) and my husband is a German. We have been living here for about 5 years now. Just curious how all the other August babys are sleeping? Do you have them on a schedule? How is it going?? Emma has been pretty much a good sleeper since day-1 in the hospital. I kinda have her on a eating schedule from 7-7 and she wakes only once in the night for a feed, usually around 4:30, then falls right back to sleep. We have been really lucky this time around as it took my son a while til he adjusted to a rythym and slept through the night, but he happily goes to bed at 7pm now and I have to wake him around 7:15am for pre-school. He is still taking 2-3 hour naps during the day too, which is nice!! I am also slowly starting the potty-training with him, so things are a bit interesting at the moment! Anyways, looking forward to hearing from you!
