After a rough start to the week, our eating machine had two great nights of sleep but last night took the cake! Signe ate at 9:30, fussed until 10:45 then slept until 5:30! Hallelujah! *insert trumpets playing here* 🙂 Praise the Lord! Granted I was up checking on her at 4 because that’s when she normally is up for a feeding by – Keith was right, there will be times you will get up to make sure they’re still breathing and last night was one of those nights. But wow oh wow! That much sleep feels AMAZING!
While it’s only 6:00 am here and Signe is sleeping again, I’ll get the rest of our update done. Signe, as I mentioned above, is an eating machine right now. She has to be going through a growth spurt, I guess we’ll see soon enough! She eats every 2 hours at best which makes is REALLY hard to get things done but hey, if she wants to eat every 2 hours during the day and sleep like this at night – GO FOR IT! She is more and more awake during feedings, generally only taking a 20 minute nap or so between. I made the mistake of reading an article saying her awake time between feedings is when her brain is learning so you should take that time to interact with her. Problem is that’s the time I have to unload the dishwasher or eat so I’ve become a pro of describing my day play-by-play to her 🙂 I think I’ll watch a couple football games (American football – Patrick) to try to pickup some more of their commentating skills.
Signe has officially graduated out of newborn diapers which is great! She is starting to wear some of the 0-3 month clothes which I think we will see her fill out more in the very near future. Her Christmas outfit is a 0-3 month one so maybe it will actually fit come Sunday. I’ll post pics for you to decide!
Here is a pic of her in her adorable shirt from her Auntie Amanda – Amanda – this one is for you!!!
We also had her first photo shoot in her Christmas outfit. It was quick but painful since she cried the whole way through – I’ll get those pictures up soon I hope.
Only a few more days to Christmas! Hope you all have safe travels and a very joyous weekend! Check back for pics of Signe as a Reindeer and in her Christmas outfit.
With Well Rested Love,
