{week 23} This past week has been a bit hectic with all of the last-minute party planning for Eloise’s party last weekend, but it hasn’t fazed Daphne a bit. She is so even-keeled and happy. Seriously, all the time. It is such a delight!

Sleep. Sleep has been going really well (knock on wood) and we are in a really great routine now. Daphne generally naps well, though her third nap is normally a catnap and isn’t always super reliable, but if we are home, she sleeps well during the day. And at night, she sometimes wakes and needs some comfort within a few hours of sleeping, but sleeps soundly throughout the night! I generally hear her when I am getting up to pump around 7 am, but she typically sleeps until 8. We have been putting her down for sleeping while she is sleepy, but still awake, and she falls asleep by herself well. She likes to have a paci, but the most important thing is her lovie!

With Daphne’s routine during the day, it makes it hard to get out of the house in the morning without sacrificing that first morning nap since she doesn’t sleep well in her carseat or on-the-go. It’s definitely a trade-off, either having a kiddo that sleeps well at home or sleeps well out; you pretty much can’t have both! So lately I have been waiting to get out of the house until early afternoon for maybe two hours to get home before the girls both nap in the afternoon. It stinks to feel stuck at home all morning, but on the flip-side, I get to take a shower and get ready (and maybe enjoy a cup of coffee sitting down!) during Daphne’s morning nap.

We have also noticed that Daphne, while she is sleeping, is all over her crib! I pretty check her on the webcam (I have an app on my phone) in the evening or during naptime and she is never in the same spot (or position) that she was in the last time! Since she rolls all over all the time while she is awake, she does the same thing when she’s sleeping. And with the rolling, she has also found tummy sleeping. We always lay her down on her back, but she generally rolls to her side right away and then to her tummy.

The past few days Daphne has done really well with sitting. She can sit (sort of like a tripod, leaning way forward) for a little bit on her own. I remember this time with Eloise that she could sort of sit, but not reliably, and it seemed like it was going to be forever before she could sit on her own. But then, all of the sudden she could! I know that “all of the sudden” is right around the corner!

Happy 23 weeks Daphne!
