Sleepy Girl

Elizabeth is going through a growth spurt. There is no other excuse. Yesterday, the child slept all day long. No kidding. She woke up about 7am for her bottle (after 8 hours of sleep, I might add!) ate her fill, visited for a few minutes, and was back out. Until 1pm. She then woke up, ate, visited for about an hour and went back to sleep. Her next wakeful moment came about 5:45. She ate, fussed for an hour and went back to sleep. At ten, she woke up again. Ate again, and went straight back to sleep. Until 11:30. PM. She woke up to eat and did not go back to sleep until 3:30. She dozed, fitfully, and refused to do anything but be in a set of arms.

She has been more wakeful today, some, but when she is tired of being awake, she is done. She made herself quite comfy in the swing, lounging all over the edge and slept peacefully for two hours.

This afternoon, I tucked her up in her Bumbo where she watched me fold laundry. We were merrily folding and singing our way through a load of freshley cleaned whites when my phone rang. I ran off to grab it and chatted with my Mom for a few minutes before it dawned on me I had left my infant unattended on the washer. I dashed back to the laundry room and this was the sight I was welcomed with.

Poor this sleepy girl. I did whisk her off to her bed after I snapped a shot or two of her smushed nose!!

Isn't it amazing how little ones can sleep anywhere and in any position?!

The pictures of the sleepy girl are adorable.
