Jubilee is a sleeper.  She has slept through the night from the time she was just shy of 7 weeks old! She would take a bottle at 7, be up for maybe 45 minutes (MAYBE!) and go back to sleep. I woke her at 10 for another bottle (much to the questioning eyes of some people around...) and put her back to bed immediately where she would sleep until 6am!  Now, at 10 months, she is still an amazing sleeper.  She sleeps from about 8:00/8:30-6:30/7:00 every night. The only exception has been earlier last week when she woke up screaming a few nights in a row sometime between midnight and 2am but we are accrediting that to the tooth that she pushed through on Wednesday.  During the day, she still takes three full 2 hour naps most of the time.  She is like clockwork --- up for 2 hours, down for 2 hours, up for 2, down for 2.  Needless to say, she treats her mommy pretty well.  I know that eventually she will stay up for longer, but for now, I'm enjoying the breaks and the chance to relax (or clean) between kid chasings! 

I questioned the doctor about it, making sure that it didn't seem like an absurd amount of sleep for a 10 month old baby.  She just smiled and said some babies just need more sleep than others and since Jubilee is SO active and is growing and developing so well, her brain just needs lots of down time. 

So be it! Sleep, Baby, Sleep :) 

Speaking of which, time to wake her up so we can head up to the church. 
Happy Sunday!
