So...I know I'm crazy for questioning and worrying about this, given that Ellie generally fights sleep, but she's sleeping a *ton* today, and I'm a little bit weirded out by it.
Just to give you a sense--she slept for 6.5 hours in a row last night, went back to sleep after eating for about another 1-1.5 hours, hung out with me a little bit and nursed, fell back asleep at the boob, woke up again to hang out a little bit and then nursed again, hung out a little bit more, then fell asleep while I was wearing her and doing the laundry (laundry always makes her sleepy--I think it's the sound of the machines). It's been about 2 1/2 hours since she last nursed--not a tremendous amount of time, but she's a girl who usually eats ever 2 hours on the dot. She's alert and bright-eyed when she's awake and doesn't feel like she has a fever or anything.
Is this pretty normal for little ones? Am I just so used to her barely napping at all during the day that I'm worrying for nothing? (I suspect so, but I'd love to hear from those of you with more "typical" (if there was such a thing with babies!) nappers/sleepers that I'm not being a worrywart...)
I'm hoping maybe now that she's 10 weeks, she's settling down with sleeping and realizing that mommy and daddy are really very boring and she's not missing anything when she's asleep...
Ooops! As I'm typing this she's stirring...time to eat again!
I before E, except after C. Weird.
