Do I dare say we have a routine?

(By Aubree)

Knock on wood! This week has been pretty good and consistent. Four nights in a row, Clara slept for 6 hours, woke up for about 20 to 60 minutes, and went going back to sleep for another 2 hours. Last night wasn't quite as good, but she slept for 4 and 1/2 hours and then 3 hours. This makes her mommy very happy!

Daytime is pretty much the same old, but I am seeing small improvements. She has found her fist, which soothes her for a short time, so she will sit by herself for a little longer than usual. She still wakes up when I try to put her in her crib during the day, which I don't understand because the last 2 nights she didn't even flinch when I put her down. She must be super tired from not sleeping well during the day. Actually, right now she is asleep on the couch, but we'll see how long that lasts. She take about an hour nap in the stroller on our daily walk (Mommy's favorite time of the day!).

Here are some current pictures.

I thought this one was funny, and it also shows her putting her fist in her mouth.

she is so cute! I can't believe how big she is getting! I remember Hayden going through a stage where he woke up when I would lay him down, but doing great at night. She'll figure it out soon and that's awesome that she is already sleeping 7 hour stretches! And by the way you look awesome!!!

She is getting so big! The pictures are cute and I'm glad the trip was fun. It's always nice to get away - and nice to get home too :)
