does she actually sleep??

So, Jadeyn has been sleeping through the night since she was about 2-3 weeks old. Of course I'm thrilled with this and Jimmy and I can't complain because we're getting so much rest. On the other hand, she's not as great at taking naps in the day. She's a tricky little thing though because I'll put her down for naps and she's wide-eyed and awake. But then I turn on her music and shut the door and I don't hear a peep from her. "Cool", I think. "She's learning to put herself to sleep". So I'll go in and check on her 10 minutes later - nope, still wide-eyed awake and just playing by herself. So, I'll check again in 15 minutes - same thing. 10 more minutes - no change. I'll wait maybe 20 minutes - STILL AWAKE! Seriously??? All this time and not one peep or cry from her, but no nap! I've started testing this and the only time I can be fairly certain she's asleep is her late afternoon nap - probably because she's so exhausted for being up almost the entire day with no napping. What a stinker! So, we have a little possum on our hands. At least she is quiet during her fake hour long naps throughout the day. And I must say for the most part, she remains in a pretty good mood for being a 2 month old who doesn't nap.

...on a side note, she had her 2 month doctors appointment on Monday. She weighs 9lbs, 8 oz (25 percantile), 22 1/2 inches long (50 percantile) and I don't remember her head measurements, but she's at the 60 percantile. She had her shots too, but did wonderfully. Just cried a little, but calmed down when it was done. Mom and Mimi did good too : )

The smiles have started!

Jadeyn has been smiling for a few weeks now, since about 4 1/2 weeks, but just last Sunday we finally got a few great pictures of it! She's so stinkin cute!
