Juliette is sleeping wonderfully at night.  She wakes only once or twice to nurse and go back to sleep.  She's fussy during the day and needs to be held a lot, but I'll take that if it means the nights go as smoothly as they do.  As soon as my back is better (I'm in lots of pain after the week long stay in the hospital bed totally wrecked something in my back) and I can nurse lying down, nights will be a breeze.


It turns out, our little lady can't stand a dirty diaper.  I mean, she starts fussing and crying the minute there is something in there.  We change her about 20 times a day, and that's no exaggeration.

The other night, she woke once to feed, and NINE TIMES to get her diaper changed.  How womanly of her - she changes her outfit nine times and then eats a little dainty meal.  Caleb and Benjamin, on the other hand, nursed every two hours until they were a year old.

(PS - Juliettejots is the cute title I'm trying out for Juliette's posts.  "Jots" as in "jots and tittles," meaning a tiny quantity, which is what these little pieces are usually about - little moments in each kid's life that I want to capture.  I'm not sure I've love Juliettejots like I loved Colinisms, Calebite and Benjaminugget, but it might grow on me.  And I can't think of anything else right now.)

I think jots is perfect. I got it right away when I read the title!
