It can't possibly be the Saturday before Spring Break ends, it's just not possible. I feel like we were busy and doing something every single day, but when I look around, it doesn't seem like we did a thing. 

Our main goal over this week was to get Adelaide out of the swaddle, preferably completely, but at the very least, for naps. Well, we did it, and dare I say? It was easy. We started by putting her in her Zipadee Zip at bedtime on the first Friday night of the break, and she was fine. Whaaaat? The next day we put her in a sleep sack for her naps. Fine again. That night back in the Zippy. All good. The next day's naps in a sleep sack. Fine yet again. The third night, I said, was the true telling night. She's had 2 good nights in a row before with various things, but never 3 (not since the periodic sleep issues began back in mid-January). Third night in the Zippy, I think she fussed a bit, but I don't think we ever had to go in and do anything. We called it an official success. Now, I don't want to discount the possibility that the Zipadee Zip was our saviour, but I am hesitant to give it all of the credit. After all, we had tried it before, unsuccessfully. I tend to lean more toward believing that she was just ready this time. She hadn't been sleeping well in her swaddle, and I think that combined with the fact that she did so well, so quickly out of it, points more toward her being ready, rather than the Zipadee Zip. But, whatever the case may be, we're still putting her in it at night, and it's working. So yeah, she's been sleeping well for the most part since last Friday in her Zippy at night and in a sleep sack for naps. I say "for the most part" because....

Her naps have actually gotten a bit erratic for the last couples of days, but we feel fairly certain that it's because she is teething. I've spoken to her doctor's office, and they say it's very likely. She's been a tad crabby and irritable for a few days, and is taking shorter naps. Not wanting to eat as much and chewing on things a lot. Sounds pretty cut and dry, but I know we can't really believe it until we actually see a tooth. Now I'm no professional, and as far as I can tell even the professionals are zero help here, but I feel pretty sure that our typically atypical baby girl is going to be true to form here.... I'd bet you $100 $10 (I'm not much of a gambler when it comes to cold hard cash) that she's trying to cut her upper incisors. Too many vampire books while I was pregnant a friend of mine would say.

And now some recent photos for your viewing pleasure.

She and Bowser seem to have come to a mutual agreement. He'll allow her to be within 6 feet of him (and even touch him occasionally) if he can lick her mercilessly:

Enjoying her new swing:

Practicing her new favorite skill, rolling from back to belly. Still not consistently going from belly to back. Like I said, she's typically atypical (which I'm really kinda proud of).

This little taste of being with her over the last week has certainly made me look forward to summer even more. As fast as the gap between Christmas and Spring Break went, I'm banking on this next run going the same way. 

12 weeks and counting.
