Six weeks and...

Daniel and Callie were six weeks old on Friday. The books all say that around the six week mark is when the sleep patterns start to change - that they spend more time awake and alert during the day, and maybe start sleeping a little more at night.

This is definitely what we are seeing with Daniel - the last few days he has been much more awake and alert during the day. He grunts and coos, and occasionally tries on a smile. He also wants to be held a lot, which can be a little challenging if you want to get anything done. But he's so cute and it's so neat that he's starting to interact with us a little bit. And we have had a few night time sleeps that are a bit longer than three hours. Up until now he was our three hour man, no more. But friday night he slept four and a half hours once, and last night he did about 3:45. Baby steps. It's not much, but every little bit of extra sleep makes a big difference for us.

Callie is still our little sleeper for the most part. She is awake a bit more during the day, but she still sleeps a lot more than her brother.
