I hate to say this (for fear of it changing...) but Rease is doing a pretty good job sleeping at night. We have had a few rough nights in the last 3 1/2 weeks, but overall she is really good. She does like to stay up until around 11 but after that she sleeps until it is time to eat a few hours later and then goes right back to bed until it is time to eat again. She is still incredibly noisy and gasy, which do cause some sleeplessness on our part, but oh well. She is usually wide awake after her feeding about 5 or so. That works out okay because then Chris gets to spend some time with her before he goes to work in the morning.
She is still sleeping pretty much most of the day. She usually has two periods during the day when she is wide awake. We enjoy that a lot. I hate when she sleeps all the time because I can't see her beautiful eyes!! They are huge!
Micah and Caleb came for a spur of the moment visit last week and we had a good time. I know Micah really enjoyed her time with Rease. Caleb enjoyed moving her around in her crib when I wasn't looking (so I would think she was some kind of wonder baby, squirming around on her own), cradling Colby when Micah would hold Rease, and sending Molly scooting across the living room floor like a bowling ball.
Everyone knows I am a huge fan of Alton Brown. While I was up feeding Rease a week or so ago I caught an episode of Good Eats that was all about ribs. We decided to try them and they were pretty good! Chris worked hard on them ( I contributed nothing other than the idea to have them for dinner) and wanted them on the blog. If you are interested in trying them yourself, go to http://www.foodnetwork.com/ and search for "Who Loves Ya Baby Back!". They are worth it!
Here are a few pictures of Rease from last week. Enjoy!
