So last night her little umbilical stump fell of, leaving an adorable cutie pie belly button! I am relieved, because that little thing kept making me nervous at changings and belly time.
It seems she is getting bigger, as her little onesies are starting to fit better, and she has perfected this little goat noise that she makes during sleep. (Mommy can't sleep through the goat noises so there is alot of sleep watching going on.) Speaking of sleeping, she sleeps with mom and dad, and is pretty stoked about that! According to everything I am reading, newborns like to snuggle alot, and we don't deny her that closeness.
After being so close and tucked in for nine months, it is hard for either one of us to be without the other without getting a little lonely! Right now she is curled up sleeping on her dad's lap as he works, which is just as sweet as can be!
She is staying awake for a little longer per day, and sleeping a little longer at night, although fitfully...did you know that newborns spend more time in REM sleep? And they make lots of noises and movements when they dream. Apparently it is due to all the processing going on in their new little brains. In the next few weeks she will reach a deeper sleep cycle, which means Mommy just may get some shut eye for longer too...
