I don't want to forget the way she is always sucking on her fists. Her bald spot (bald line really) on the back of her head. The way she clasps her hands together. The gurgling sound she makes when she is happy. When she will be eating, stop to look at me and smile and then dive back to continue eating. Those beautiful baby blue eyes.

Eat: Eating has not changed all that much this month. While we were traveling though I noticed that she does not eat as well if it is too loud. If she was fighting eating, I would have to make sure that I took her somewhere quiet so that she would actually take a full meal. This was not always easy to do and then she would get fussy because she was not full. Other than that she is still exclusively breast feeding and she is doing really well.

Sleep: We did a lot of traveling this month and because of that her consistent routine got thrown off a bit. We have been home for a while now and she is finally getting back into her routine. She definitely loves her sleep and is a completely different baby when she does not get a good nap in. She has been able to go longer stretches without a full nap. This has been helpful because lately she is harder to get to sleep on the go. She wants to be involved in the action. But this usually ends up being one nap a day that is a little shorter and then she will take a longer nap after. So it works out in the end.

Her schedule is basically the same as it has always been. Each day is a little different, but she is pretty consistent about a three hour routine. She will usually be awake for about an hour, which includes the time that she eats. Then she will take an hour and a half to two hour nap. When she wakes the cycle starts over and we repeat.
