It's that special time of year when I enjoy golden sunlight from when I wake up almost until I fall into bed at night. These long days are a bittersweet pleasure because they form the peak of the year's light, which will soon begin again the long descent toward the dark heart of winter.
Speaking of waking and sleeping, NS, six months old, been gradually waking up less often for night feeding. In the past couple of weeks, the average has been slipping from two to one feeding per night.
One night this week, she woke up to nurse about every two hours (i.e. five times in one night). Then, last night, she slept for 12 hours, waking only once to nurse. Could the long night be due to the fact that yesterday she was awake for 14 hours with only an hour's nap???
On an unrelated note, the baby bathtub has been converted into a boat, since NS now prefers to play while sitting up.
