Must be a growth spurt

Bennett has been sleeping like a newborn this week. She goes down at 8:30 and doesn't wake up until 8:00 in the morning. Well, she wakes up when she rolls over on her stomach, but when we roll her back over she's down for the count. Unfortunately this happens 4 times a night. But anyway, after her morning feeding she plays for about an hour and then is asleep again until 11:30 am. She takes a 20 minute nap in the early afternoon and then a 2 hour hap in the late afternoon, and then goes right back down at 8:30. My friends who "know" tell me this is probably a growth spurt. If so, I am expecting a head full of hair and a new clothing size by the end of the week because this is crazy.

When she is awake she is squealing at the top of her lungs. Apparently light fixtures are the greatest invention since the wheel. She can squeal (in delight according to those same friends who "know") for an hour without stopping. I guess she's making the most of what little wake time she has.

Here she is in full on squeal mode.

Oh girl! Enjoy every minute of it! She's just being a sweet angel by letting you and Rob catch up on the sleep you missed. It won't be long until you won't be able to get anything done because she WON'T sleep! :) :) :)

That is so funny Lauren. Love the picture. And we had the opposite problem. When Joshua would roll onto his back he would wake up until we rolled him back over. Fun times. It was great to see you the other day. I hope we can do it again soon. Our little ones will become great friends.
