All things considered…

All things considered, we have a pretty good baby!

People around us seem to think that she’s very sensitive. Sure, she’ll scream as soon as her diaper is wet. And she does turn into a fury when she has been awake for more than an hour, at which point we have to swaddle her and walk her around for anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour and a half before she falls asleep. True, sometimes that sleep lasts for only 10 minutes, at which point she feels revived until she starts screaming again.

But for the last five nights, she has slept for 6 hours in a row twice and 7 hours in a row twice. So although we do have trouble putting her down for naps, which means we have very little time to ourselves, and although she definitely does her share of crying very loudly in our ears, I wouldn’t trade it for a baby that is easy during the day but won’t go down at night.

All that said, I know very well that the way she sleeps today means absolutely nothing in terms of how she’ll sleep tomorrow. So we’ll just have to wait and see!
