Tomorrow Sofia will be 7 weeks old! Time has flown and I'm fearful that in a blink I'll be back at work (I have 6 more weeks left) and I'm not appreciating every moment I have with her now.
We've made great progress over the past few days. Not only is she consistently sleeping in her car seat (remember that this is progress because she was only sleeping in our arms), but today she napped for 2 hours in her bassinet!! (the one on the pack n play) That is HUGE!! I'm hopeful she'll start sleeping in it at night too. At night, we take turns sleeping out in the living room on the couch so that the other person can get restful sleep. The hope is that eventually she sleeps in our bedroom where we have the bassinet set up.
The other great thing is that she seems to be taking a pacifier finally!! I know - why is this good? Well, it's wonderful because up until now the only thing she wanted was my finger! And lately she would take Russ's finger too, but can you imagine how inconvenient that is?? Not only was I holding her the whole time, but much of that time my finger was in her mouth! No wonder I couldn't get anything done. So now she is happy with a pacifier and while that might be starting a new bad habit, at least it helps her soothe and sleep.
We took pictures of her today and finally ordered our birth announcements. She'll be nearly 2 months old before they go out, but that's alright - they're going out at least right??
Here is one of my favorite pictures. It was going to be on the announcement but we went in a different direction so I'll share it here. I'm going to enlarge a copy and give it to my mom - her two girls, sleeping...
