Lets just start by saying that a few days after I posted her 3 month update about the terrible sleeping, something must have clicked because this girly is now the greatest sleeper I ever could have hoped for! She sleeps absolutely amazing during the night--sometimes 10 hours! (On a bad day she sleeps 5 1/2.) Typically she will wake up at 6am, eat, and go right back to sleep. Sometimes she isn't tired and I just lay her in her bed, I go back to sleep, and when she gets tired and wants me to swaddle her, she will softly call out for me and I wrap her up, nurse her for a minute and she is right out. She also puts herself to sleep sometimes! I don't know what clicked, but boy am I grateful! (We are still giving her the cat nip once, rarely twice at night and none during the day. We aren't sure if this is what's doing the trick, but we don't want to mess with a good thing, so we are just going to continue giving it to her!) She also sleeps and plays great during the day. Literally zero sleeping problems now!
Sometimes she sneaks her little arm/s out
Sometimes she puts herself to sleep. Such a good girl.
She weighs almost 11 1/2 pounds. She is still a teensy weensy but if you look at the pictures here you can tell she's chunking up nicely. She looks very healthy and I'm not concerned with her weight gain at all. She eats great.
Loves her bath and her Shark Girl towel! Okay... maybe I just love her towel...
Loves to smile!

She is such a perfect little baby. I really can't complain about anything now! Those first 3 months were absolutely killer but she is doing great now. I hope she stays this way! We love you, Lady Bug!
