Our sweet baby girl is 6 weeks old today! She has a lot more awake time now, so we have been getting good use of her play mat. She absolutely loves it. She talks to the animals, gives lots of smiles, listens to the sounds, and watches the lights. It is definitely her favorite thing to do right now – she even enjoys a little tummy time on it usually. She was giving her animals lots of smiles this morning, so I decided to grab my camera (see pics below). She also can see the mobile I made her now, so I have loved watching her enjoy looking at it while in her crib.
Some other happenings…
We have had two nights in a row of 4 hour sleep stretches (9PM – 1 AM), which has been great! She still gets up around 4:00 or 5:00 also, but then she will go back to sleep until 8:00-8:30. We are making progress!
Like I said earlier, she also has been awake a lot more during the day. She cracks us up with all of her little faces she makes and the way she gets her arms, legs, and head moving like crazy. She still LOVES bath time. She also has been doing more “talking.” Sometimes you can tell she is trying to talk the way she opens her mouth but she just can’t get sound out, but she is getting much better at it. She still doesn’t cry too much, but you know she’s mad when she does her “mmmaaaaaa” cry. :)
Mimi has been in town, so Laney is loving all of the extra attention.
We’ve gone for walks, met dad for lunch, and hung around the house. Mom and Dad had their first date night together (thanks to Mimi!). It was great to get out and hang just the two of us. We enjoyed some pizza and ice cream. We were going to go to a movie too, but I think we were both too tired and ready to see our baby girl. :)
We can’t wait for the rest of the family to get here tomorrow! Have a great rest of the week!
