Talking Princess

Reese got her beauty sleep last night. It is likely that this won't last, so I thought I ought to blog about it. I've been trying really hard to get her into a better night time schedule. Instead of feeding her when she wakes up during the night, I've been giving her her binky. Yesterday I decided I'd just go back to feeding her when she wakes up because the binky thing was making her wake up every 45 minutes or so instead of every 3 - 5 hours. I fed her at 8:30 last night in the car (because we were out buying a second guitar for guitar hero - yeah baby). She fell asleep on the car ride home; when we got home I put her into bed. She didn't wake up until 4:00 am - meaning a 7 1/2 hour stretch!! I fed her and put her back in bed. She talked to herself for about 10 minutes and then fell back to sleep without her binky! She slept in until 8:45 am. SHE ROCKS!! She allowed me to get some MUCH needed sleep. Thanks baby girl!!

Well, having a good night's rest, made Reese into one happy little girl this morning. I decided I'd take advantage of her super good mood and dressed her up to snap some pictures. She was talking a ton so I took this video of her cute voice to share with you all.

1 random thought...lots of my friends are super into baby schedules, sleep habits, etc. and there's a book called Baby Whisperer that they love that addresses the 4 month wakefulness issue. I know there are some really great ways to deal with this phase so you may want to check the book out. I called Esther (she's REALLY good at baby schedules!)to have her remind me of the book's name and she suggested googling "4 month wakefulness." I did and there are tons of articles, support groups, etc. that may provide some helpful advice.
