Kirianna has been eating and sleeping very oddly for the past few days. This is probably due to the fact that she has gained a level in mobility! She squirmed herself almost horizontally in her bed the night before last and has been grasping at her blankets and other things besides my hair. She is also in the process of discovering her hands and how she can put them in her mouth for reasons other than a direct request for food, and the drool factory is starting – time to go find the bibs soon!
This means that we have had to change how we keep her warm at night – no more green fuzzy blanket for the little grabber. She’s in a sleep sack and a couple of blankets that are about the same thickness as gauze, so if she manages to drag one over her face, there should be no problem. And speaking of at night, she had a two-day stretch where she slept from about midnight to 8 straight, but told that to go to hell as she’s up every 4 hours again. At least she has some semblance of a nighttime sleep – I hear of a lot of babies who are up every 2 hours; knock on wood about the 4 hour stretches!
