dd2 is 6 weeks and i think all she does is eat and sleep, as they say, but seriously...today she woke up at 8:00am and was awake for an hour, then she woke again at 10 and was awake for maybe 30 minutes, then slept until 1 and was awake for maybe an hour, then slept until 4:30 and was awake maybe an hour, if that, then she's been asleep ever since (it's about 9:30). she looks healthy, acts healthy, seems healthy...she was 8 lbs 8 ounces at birth and was 11 lbs 14 ounces...
