Pia update

Pia is 7 weeks old this week.

The big news is she has started smiling. A bit elusive to capture on camera, but there none the less. She mostly smiles at her Sisters, as they crowd around her attempting to get an entertaining grin out of her.

Still, she is by far the quietest, most peaceful of my girls. Pia enjoys watching everyone else and is still sleeping away the majority of the day. There have been many times I have simply wrapped her up in a swaddle and laid her down in the cradle and she drifts off to sleep on her own. That has been practically unheard of in this house. I may regret later saying this and have to eat my words (but knock on wood), she has also been sleeping through the night for a few weeks. Yup. I can’t believe it either.

There have been a few nights where she has gone down kinda late and slept all the way until 6am. Typically she wakes around 4am to nurse and conk back out after going to bed between 8 and 8:30. I can definitely live with this schedule, which is totally unexpected (not that I am complaining in the least!). The problem is that we have been going to bed later than usual and getting up earlier than usual, so I am still tired in the morning even though for the first time in oh, a little more than 3 years, I am sleeping rather consistently.

Pia is a complete cutie. I do feel like I am enjoying the infant stage more this time around. It is a good way to go out, as Pia will perpetually be the youngest in the Family. Not a bad note to end on.
