Last weekend my mom came in town to see Taylor because she didn't have to work Friday through Monday. My mom always sleeps in my upstairs guest room so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to let Taylor sleep in her crib for the first time since her room is upstairs as well. Up until this point I have been putting her in her bassinet in my room. The first night didn't go so great. She woke up after only 3 hours to eat (I blame my mom for letting her sleep all day!). The next night she slept 9 1/2 hrs. Well, the past 3 days she has slept through the night for a minimum of 8 1/2 hours. I am hoping this continues because I have thuroughly enjoyed my sleep! I believe the main reason she sleeps all night is because she doesn't really take an afternoon nap. She cat-naps here and there, but never takes a long serious nap. The only down side is that she does start to get pretty cranky around 6:00 pm until she goes to bed which is usually around 9:30-10:00. I know that is late, but I want to make sure she gets in all her feedings, plus sometimes it will be 10:00 and she is wide awake!
Taylor has also been smiling a ton! I noticed this right around the 6 week mark. She has also been following me with her eyes. I like to place her on my lap and talk to her and she talks back and smiles. It's so cute! I have tried to document this with pictures, but it seems as though every time I try to snap a photo of her smiling she stops. I will keep trying! I will post some pictures today or tomorrow of her once I download them. She is sleeping right now so I wanted to get this post done while I could! Can't waste time anymore!
