Ellen is now over a month old. She is such a calm baby. Even when Cooper is climbing all over her and trying to shove a pacifier in her mouth, she’ll just give him a dirty look and save her cries for when she’s hungry.
Noel and I each take a child at night (he gets Cooper and I get Ellen) and most nights Noel is up more than me (although I’m typically up longer). Ellen is a really good sleeper and typically only eats once a night. We moved her into the crib after our guests left and the last couple of nights she’s slept till 5am (after going to bed between 10:00 and 11:00). It’s amazing, but it always makes me run into her room to check that she’s breathing. I’m not used to having a child that sleeps.
She’s also incredibly strong. Half the time when she does tummy time I expect her to start crawling away because of how strong her little legs are. The other half of the time she just falls asleep. I’m pretty sure Cooper just screamed the whole time he did tummy time.
This little girl also has really good burps. Sometimes I think she has a teenage boy living inside of her.
From the front she looks fairly bald, but has a good tuft of hair on the back of her head. Right now that tuft is looking pretty red.
Ellen definitely brings a good balance to our family.
