She had a good run of sleeping eight hours at night. I bet she did it four or five nights in a row, but for the past four or five, she's been up after 6, then every 3 again, just like the daytime. I'm so hoping she finds her groove again. Sleep is addicting, you know--at least for adults.
She goes on little talking sprees, and it is precious. She likes chewing on her hands, and she doesn't love being on her tummy. If she's not hungry or tired, she'll let most people hold her. When she needs to chill out, she likes to be swaddled and laid down beside wherever I'm sitting. She will some times just lay there sucking her paci 'til she drifts off to sleep. Unfortunately, this only works after Spencer is in bed, not if he's still runnin' around.
She will sit in her bouncy seat for short stints, and her love for the swing seems to be dwindling; but she happens to be sleeping in it for the first time in a week or so right now, so who knows?

She was such a doll at the Richardson Family Christmas, which we celebrated last weekend. My aunts, cousins, sisters, and brother-in-law took turns passing her around the whole time, and she did great. It's a whole new world with this one! She laughed at Jonathan a week or so ago, and it was precious. She can and does smile at us, but she's not extremely easy to amuse. I think half of the time she's a little scared (of Spencer).
Her skin issues are less severe, but still persisting. Baths are not her friend. Every time she gets one, all manner of skin issues recur. I think we're officially done with them. Ha!
She's going to have a (hopefully fun) little photo shoot with one of my long-lost friend's baby girl tomorrow, and I can't wait to see if we manage to get a good picture. If so, it'll be a perfectly timed three month shot. I'm slowly but surely getting the finishing touches on her nursery, and it is fun in there! She's getting some very special additions to it for Christmas, and I can't wait to get it where I feel like it's "finished." She is a loved little girl.

Hopefully I'll capture a little bit of her beauty digitally and get it uploaded before she's four months.
