From the time she was born – with a handful of exceptions – Catherine woke once at 3am to eat and again at 6am and again at 8am, give or take an hour. A couple weeks ago she stretched it to 4am and 8am, on her own…and I was SO proud and grateful to my sweet girl for taking it upon herself to ease her schedule toward a full night of sleep. Well, two nights ago she slept until 6:30am and then 8am…and last night she slept until 7am!!! (then was up for the day). And our pediatrician suggested we let her cry a little – ha! Catherine had other plans. I wouldn’t have done that anyway.

What a wonderful little baby Chris and I are blessed with!
