Baby Tweedle seems to change by the minute. She has such a little personality now, it is so hard to believe only a few short months ago she couldn't grab toys or sit up. She makes a blowing noise with her mouth and then looks at us and laughs! She also makes a smacking sound and I tell myself she is learning to make kisses.
We are so happy to have the sun out this week. Yesterday I sat Nora on the deck and she laughed and smiled and looked all around. We are going to have many more things to occupy our days with the nicer weather.
Nora's sleeping has been a little off the last week or so. My little night sleeper has been waking up at least once a night to eat and I am not sure if she is actually hungry or just relying on me to fall back to sleep. Her naps are still short, although we have had some longer ones and every time she sleeps longer I count it as a small victory of the day! I have a bad habit of analyzing all her sleep habits, wondering if I have done something differently to make her wake at night or sleep longer for naps. I never knew it would be so hard to give up the need for routine and just go with the flow. Some days babies sleep and some days they don't. I think it is as simple as that!
What I would like to know is at what age they finally settle into a "routine" that I can count on? Age 2, 3?? Or do they ever?!
