Besides that night of solid sleep, she has been up a few times each night. Not that I can complain. For being less than 3 months old and being breastfed, she sleeps really well. And she has never had a problem sleeping in her bassinet before. I'm hoping that she's just getting like uncomfortable in it since she's getting bigger and there isn't much of a mattress, but I get nervouse since I'm about to spend a few hundred bucks on a crib that I obviously want her to use. She's either ended up in her bouncy chair or in my bed the past few nights, and I don't want her to get used to that, but with work and everything else, we've NEEDED the sleep. I've tried to put her down. I've tried to let her cry for a few minutes. I've tried to give her the pacifier while she lays there and reassure her. I've tried to play music. I've tried making sure she is fast asleep before I put her down. But each and every time, she ends up waking up or else insisting on getting up. She keeps startling herself. I just feel bad, and it's hard when you can't tell what's wrong because she can't tell you what's wrong.
Hopefully it'll just be a phase that will pass as quickly as it started.

Other than that, we did meet up with some friends, Jimmy and Caitlin at Neato Burrito this week which was lots of fun. Audrey slept the whole time :) Other than that, we went out to breakfast with Spencer at Juice and Java before taking him to work on Wednesday. Yeah, she slept that time, too. Oh, and today we went out to lunch with my dad and stepmom and she also slept then! I mean, when I talk about all that, it seems like all she does is sleep, but I promise, it's not. She's been "chatting" a lot more lately too, which is SO much fun. I feel like we're having conversations, and I think she thinks we are, too.
