Routine observation

One of the things that I think has helped us so far is routine. We do pretty much the same things everyday. Every morning we take brother to school, Baba goes to work, Mama and Lila do housework (sort of) Plus, each night we have the same little routine before we go to bed. I've tried to keep things the same as much as possible. It dawned on me last night when we were tucking her into bed and I didn't do our little counting game with the blankets. She kicked the blankets off and said, "1, 2, 3 ?"
In the orphanages I know that all the babies are on a strict schedule and with foster parents, I'm sure they have things dialed right in. It was like that way with Braydon too. When he was a baby if we got off routine, he was crabby. I know some of you seasoned parents are saying DUH!!! But, you know how the light bulb comes on sometimes, and your like.....Oh yeah.....
