Ellie has been an expert sleeper since she was born. Some people think that all newborns are sleepy, but I can tell you that they are not! Joshua hardly slept during the day in his first two months of life. Ellie, on the other hand, could not be bothered to keep her eyes open... no matter what we tried! I thought that the sleepiness would subside, but she has continued to be terrific at falling asleep and at staying asleep during naps as well as through the night. Her bedroom door in our house does not close all the way, and I actually love it because I can peek in at her from time to time. I have learned that she isn't always sleeping in there! She lays quietly wiggling around; sometimes she is grabbing her face in a desperate attempt to get all of her fingers in to her mouth in order to soothe herself back to sleep. Most often, she is laying completely still with her eyes cracked open. Now I know that babies sleep with their eyes open sometimes, but it seemd like hers are hardly ever closed!
