Picture Update

Brianna slept the longest last night she ever has - about eleven hours. It felt really good to sleep in this morning! I slept until about 8:00 and then she didn't even get up until a little after 9:00. I guess the stars were aligned just right for her. The past two nights she has slept much better, and I think it's because I've been supplementing her right before bed. I give her two ounces of formula, and then she nurses. One night I even gave her another ounce of breastmilk right after the formula. Also, she didn't take a nap - at all - yesterday, so I'm sure she was worn out!! She has definitely become accustomed to sleeping on her stomach, which freaks me out as I wake up and realize I haven't heard her make a sound for 5... 7... 9 hours. Of course, mom said 30 years ago she was freaking out about just the opposite - us sleeping on our backs. It's just nature for moms to freak out occasionally, I guess.

These pictures are from the last three weeks. She's starting to love the Johnny Jump-up, although she doesn't have it perfected yet. Joy came over the other night to see her, and of course she was cranky part of the time. Since she's down to one or ZERO naps a day, she gets pretty cranky in the evenings. Anyway, most of the pictures are self-explanatory. Enjoy!

I love every picture of our multi-talented Brianna. Is Stephen teaching her everything he knows about the piano? And I hope you can post a video of the Johnny Jumpup when convenient.
