Ella was not happy when Magen had to leave. She cried a lot. Finally my mom was able to rock her and she fell asleep in less than 10 minutes on her shoulder. We got home just around this time so Dave (I think) carried her upstairs and put her on the bed. I still can't believe all these people can rock her to sleep and I never can.
I didn't even try to have her sleep alone and just went right to sleep with her. It stopped some crying that could wake other people up but she wasn't so good at going to sleep.
