Rease has really started smiling a lot lately. Here are some pictures as proof. The last two night she has been wide awake about 4:00 am, but she is grinning and smiling and cooing (just a little bit) the whole time. Time awake in the middle of the night is much more enjoyable like that than when she screams. But....I would rather her be alert like that during the day instead of at night. We are getting there though. Rease is slowly getting used to the eat-wake-sleep schedule as recommended in Baby Wise. We started laying her down awake today and for the most part it went pretty well. I think her longest crying stint was about 30 minutes. If she would only sleep for more than 20 minutes after falling asleep we would be in business!
One of Chris' good friends at work just had a grandson and I happened to run in to little Jack, his mom, and two aunts when I went to the doctor yesterday. He was born last week and was about 8 pounds 1 ounce (I think). I was taken back when I looked at him and couldn't even remember Rease being so small. They grow way too fast!!!
Chilling with Daddy in my bug bathrobe after a nice bath today. **Chris was a sweaty mess from mowing the yard...so maybe I should have been holding her since she was all clean!**
