Happy 7 months, Clara!
It feels like it was just yesterday I was wrapping my sweet, little Clara in this cocoon. Just like her sisters, she loved to be wrapped up as tight as can be. My cousin, Kelly, knitted this for Clara, and that afternoon, I put Clara into it and she drifted into a deep sleep. She looked so beautiful, and I couldn't help but take a million photographs of her in it. The photo above has to be one of my all time favorite photographs ever. It just captures the sweet, peacefulness of a newborn. It gives me the itch.
She is now taking two very good naps, and putting herself to sleep. It just took her some time to figure things out, I knew she could do it! Her nighttime sleep is slowly getting better, too! She goes down easily at around 7:30pm and will wake between 10-11pm to eat before bed. She still wakes frequently, but each night, she improves - last night she slept 10pm-5am, amazing. I have no doubt in my mind she will be a good sleeper just like her big sisters! She still loves her mommy, and sometimes still carries the name "Clingy Clara" - I don't mind cuddling with her either! They are only little once...
I'll update tomorrow with Clara's 7 month stats after we get back from the pediatricians office!
