Everyn has been edging toward thumbsucking as the soothing method of choice. She will still take the pacifier, but if it falls out she just uses her thumb. Within the last week she has added a new twist- the hand on her head. When she is trying to get to sleep she sucks her thumb with her right hand and places her left hand on either the back or the side of her head.
From the time she was born, she has had a twinkle in her eye. She was only days old and I told Noah that it always looked like she was thinking about some joke- well, at least in the minutes that her eyes were actually open. Now she just smiles and smiles, laughs and coos. She actually makes a lot of happy noises, and is totally thrilled when someone sits and talks to her. Today Berean was sitting in front of her seat, singing her a "song". Everyn's smile was ear to ear.
The girls were in for their well child check ups last week- Ever was 13 pounds, 3 oz and 24 inches long. That puts her at about the 90th percentile. She is a good sleeper and a good eater- we have no complaints :)
Everyn really doesn't have a schedule, she just kind of works into the flow of our day. She still sleeps a lot. I don't put her in her bed to nap, she just naps wherever she is. Typically she goes to bed between 9 and 10 and sleeps a 6-8 hour stretch, nurses and then sleeps some more. Some nights she sleeps longer than that, just depends.
I have been working on photo books for the kids, hopefully these little blog updates will help jog my memory when I go to compile the books! I am planning to wade through Berean's birthday photos tomorrow, and get them up on the blog!
