She’ll be 10 weeks old tomorrow and in the past couple weeks especially I’ve completely fallen in love. It seems like we understand each other more now. Yeah there’s still crying at least once a day for reasons I can’t figure out, but the periods of “happy and awake” are longer and longer.
When it comes to sleeping we’ve totally lucked out. She’s sleeping 6 hours straight, usually starting around 11 p.m., which is our normal bedtime. Then wakes up to eat early a.m., but will go right back to sleep for at least a couple more hours. I’m too much of a realist to expect this to last, but sure am enjoying it.
The best part is how interactive she is now. Every day lots of smiling and “talking” – all kinds of “ahhhh oooooo” sounds, and she’ll look at you waiting for a response.
