"Firsts"

Sarah had a couple "firsts" last night that I wanted to share.
-She slept for 12 hours straight for the first time(5pm to 5am. Sarah averages between 8-11 hours sleep time every night. Great for her... and me!! :) She loves her sleep at night...still working on the day naps. :)
-She somehow turned herself completely around in her crib without coming out of her blanket or waking up. :) Little wiggler...we'll have to be more careful since she's starting to move around...rolling over, doing 180's...she's a punkin!!
-Another "first" she had a couple days ago was falling asleep while cuddled into my shoulder. It was the sweetest thing.

Some other new things she likes are:
-Her hands- She's starting to see them and realize they are attached to her.
-Baby Einsteins- She watches intently every morning. :)
-Cooing- She's got all sorts of stories. I love watching her mouth and nose move while she concentrates so hard to get noise to come out. She loves having conversations with mommy and daddy.
-Her thighs- She's getting some nice rolls.(just like her mom j/k) :) Well fed, I say. :)
-Tummy Time- She always seems to be looking up. She has such a strong neck.
-Stretching- She loves it when I stretch her arms and legs to help her become less stiff.
-Baby Bjorn- She loves going on walks in her Bjorn, looking at the sun and trees and feeling the wind on her face. She also likes chillin' with me while I cook and sometimes takes a snooze while in the Bjorn.
-Daddy- It's so sweet to see her face light up when she see's daddy and smiles when she recognizes his glasses.
-Baths- She loves bath/shower time, but absolutely screams every time we take her out of the warm water no matter what time of day. (Much like her Daddy)Must remind her of birth. :)
-Mobiles- The birdies on her swing are definitely her friends.
-Smiling- Much more frequent these days.

Sarah is such a joy!! We love her so much!!

I remember you talking about books, and what you should or should not do with the baby...but you guys are pros. When we have kids I will have to talk to you about the sleeping. That sounds great! Sounds like things are going well. That is great that your mom was able to come visit!
