We got our girl at 6 weeks old. Of course, we did it wrong. We couldn't stand the whining, so we traded off over 3 weeks with her sleeping on our chest each night on the couch. Now, 6 years later, we have to give her a "wine pill" whenever we leave for any amount of time. We wouldn't have it any other way. She has her own pool! We just borrow it from time to time...and she's not too sure about it.
...and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Gen. 1:28
