What do you do when your 2 week old won't go to sleep? Let her big sister help her.

Padyn hated the swing when she was little. I've been hoping Katelyn would like it so that we could be somewhat justified in owning the thing. But alas, Katelyn seems to be heading in the way of her big sister. Last week I was trying to get her to fall asleep, and of course, decided to try the swing...again. She would start to fall asleep, then wake up crying. I'd reinsert the pacifier, she'd fall asleep, and 2 minutes later she'd be crying. After about 20 minutes of this, Padyn decided she needed to be involved. The next time Kate was crying, Padyn ran over and shoved the pacifier in Kate's mouth saying, "It's ok honey. It's ok." Well, who would have guessed, but it worked! Kate actually slept for 20 minutes.

Now I just have Padyn put her to sleep.

(Ok, maybe not. Padyn's still a little rough in her handling of her baby sister. But wouldn't it be great if it was just that easy?)
