Baby Sleep

 This girl likes to spread out. 
Pearl will happily sleep anywhere during the day, but we are still working on getting her to sleep in the co-sleeper at night.  She is generally wide awake from 9pm to 3 or 4am.  She seems to hate swaddles, laying on her back, and her co-sleeper.  I've given up on trying to swaddle her hands in at bed time.
I can proudly say we had a nice chunk of sleep from about 3am-7:45am this morning.  It felt wonderful.  I hope it's a sign of things to come.  I would like her to go to sleep before 3am though.  That would be nice.

  2. Kira she looks so big already! What a stinkin cutie you have! Sleep will get better now that her stomach can hold more. I find that I actually function way better being sleep deprived than I thought I would! Can't wait to see you guys again!

    PS: Bennett says "baby pearl" all the time (though it still sounds like he's saying "baby poo" with a southern accent) :)

  3. Kira, Sophia never liked to be swaddled and only liked sleeping on her stomach :) I relate to that completely. It was so funny because so many people said to have her sleep on her back and she will LOVE to be swaddled...but nope! And I really hope you can get her to sleep earlier. I am so sorry that you have such late nights... Loving the pictures and stories because I am either right there with you or was JUST tehre
