Gracie's Crib

Breaking news! On Tuesday night Grace slept six hours in a row! And then, Wednesday night she did the same thing! She is awesome! I'm doing a little happy dance right now. I know that this may not become her regular sleep schedule, but I appreciate her allowing me the continuous hours of sleep.

Gracie's crib is the place to be. At least she tends to think so and that's cool with us. She loves to watch the mobile we have above the matress -- it has music and lights, you know, all the bells and whistles. Then I put her in there for a bit today and she was totally ignoring the mobile and was looking at the images on the bumper. She was totally fixated on the zebra for almost a half hour (see photo).

The other place Grace has a lot of fun is the changing table -- seriously. She looks at the mobile we put above the table and also is a fan of the giraffe stuffed animal we have placed here. It's also her favorite place to do the sprinkler dance that her dad taught her (see photo). If you ask nice he might teach it to you too : ) It's especially fitting that she practices the sprinkler dance on the changing table, because she's sprinkled quite a bit there. I will elaborate on that in a future post.

Kate I just taught a weekend OB class to pregnant couples. We talked about the reflex that makes babies appear to fence ie: head to the left with left arm straight out and right arm bent. She demonstrates the pose perfectly she is so smart. I can not wait to see her in a few weeks, get ready to shop!! :)
