Parker turned eight weeks old this past Sunday and she decided to celebrate by doing two amazing things--(1) falling asleep in her swing and (2) sleeping through the entire night!!
Up until this past weekend Parker hated her swing. We would put her in it and about one minute later she would be screaming for us to pick her up. On Friday I sat her in it and she was in love! No crying, no screaming, she just looked contently up at the mobile and enjoyed the swaying motion. When Kris sat her in the swing later that night she even fell asleep in it! Up until this point Parker could only fall asleep on our chests so you can believe how amazed we are by her new liking to the swing!
Parker has been pretty good with sleeping since about five weeks or so. She would fall asleep around 9pm, would wake around 4am to play, then would be out again around 5am for another hour or so, but on Saturday and Sunday night she slept from 10pm to 8am! Of course I had to wake to feed her a couple times but she fell right back asleep. I was so shocked both mornings when I looked at the clock! She's been more active during the day so she's got to be exhausted by bed time. I'm hoping that she keeps sleeping this way!
Ahhh, what a sweet sight!
Parker has also gotten a lot bigger!
Here I am rocking her when she was one week old...
And at 6 1/2 weeks. It's incredible seeing how much she has changed in just a few weeks.
And here are a few more pictures from the past couple weeks...
Hanging out nakey on her activity mat. This girl usually hates being naked but she doesn't seem to mind at this moment in between an outfit change!
Snoozing on Kris :)
Another comparison picture. Parker at four days old...
And at seven weeks.
