new milestones

Posted by lena on June 22nd, 2008 filed in baby news

This week is national Ilya tracking things with her eyes week.  This is a major milestone and proves that she is clearly brilliant.  On an unrelated note, this is also national throw up week.

Ilya’s sleep cycle:

8pm-12am = sleep

12am – quietly stir, get fed, then quickly fall back asleep

12:15am-2:15am = sleep

2:15am – quietly stir, get changed, get fed, wake up and refuse to go back to sleep for three hours unless mommy (and only mommy) feeds me and comforts me.  Then wake up as soon as she puts me down.

5am – sleep as long as I am touching either mommy or daddy

6am – wake up for light feeding and again refuse to go to sleep unless touching either parent

7am – repeat

8am – repeat

When Ilya is done nursing and she is tired, she will quietly remove her head from my nipple and rest it on my boob then sling her hand across my chest.  Its so beautiful it kills me.
