Isis' Baby Milestones - 6 weeks!

I feel like a week ago, she wasn't doing much of anything and within the past 7 days, she's become a different baby! It's crazy!! First of all - biggest news was the smiling!! It tends to happen most often when you are changing her diaper. She definitely loves being naked!

She also has more control of her head when she lifts it up during tummy time or when she's on your shoulder! (The picture above is just tummy time. I couldn't get a good shot of her lifting her head.) She's getting a little less wobbly, but we've still got a little ways to go. She will also now follow things or people with her eyes if they move around. She will hold your eye contact for longer. She's always made eye contact, but then she would kinda look at your hairline or around the edge of your head rather than right in your eyes. Now she will just stare at your for a minute straight in your eyes.

She mimics our facial expressions sometimes. You usually have to do it several times before she'll mimic it, but she will! I tried to catch her doing it with Lewis this morning, but I couldn't catch it in time. She's a lot more interactive, too. I also believe that some of this is because she's getting more sleep and therefore is more alert when she's awake. I've just noticed a huge difference since starting the sleep training! It's kind-of a "which came first - chicken or egg" situation - was she just ready to meet these milestones and therefore was ready for sleep training or is the extra sleep helping her reach more milestones? I don't really care which way it is, it's a good deal all the way around! And then the thing she did this morning which was brand new was she started looking at her hand!! It would be up by her face and she would just stare at it and then move it away and then bring it back and stare at it again. She only did it a couple times for a few seconds, but that was a big deal for us!!

So yay! I think she's right where she needs to be!
