The other highlight this month? She has begun to think about sleeping through the night. It has happened twice now, so I am hoping this means we are on our way to the real deal! On the nights when she does awaken, she usually needs me for about 15 minutes somewhere near the 4am hour. I can live with it. Now I need to get used to her sleeping longer stretches, because the two times she slept all the way until morning, I slept fitfully, anticipating her waking up at any moment.
Gabe has turned a bit of a corner with his baby sister. He exhibits serious concern when she cries. He laughs at her coos. And he even let me put her on his lap for a hot second. I call all of this progress. I think he may just love her yet.
And now, photo bomb.
