Sleeping Patterns: I really cannot complain! In fact, we joke that you sleep better than your 2 1/2-year-old sister most nights! Your bedtime is around 8:30 PM. I have to wake you up at 10 PM to give your medicine and sometimes you want a little "snack" of nursing, but usually you don't. You wake up around 2:30 AM to nurse and then again around 5:30 - 6 AM.
New Discoveries and Accomplishments: You continue to grow both mentally and physically at a rapid pace. Your eyesight seems to be much stronger now. You love to lock eyes with mommy when you are nursing. You are starting to mimic sounds. You will grin and coo at anyone who gives you attention! In fact, your voice and your gummy grin seem to be your newest discoveries.
Special Friends: I hesitate to say that you may have learned Caroline is trouble. She loves you dearly, but she loves you in a "hands-on" way that makes you whine nervously more often than not. You are so loving and responsive to anyone who will snuggle you up to his or her neck -- that's your favorite way of being held, against someone's chest and your forehead in the neck crease.
What We Did This Day: Today (October 21st) was a Sunday. I hate to admit that we missed church this morning, but God knows we were absent, so there's no use in hiding it from the world, either. We had a lovely, much-needed, quiet morning at home. Then Daddy took Rob golfing while you went with Caroline and Mommy to Lowe's then Nona's house for a quick visit.

Your face has definitely rounded out! Your legs look chubbier, too, but I couldn't get a great shot of them this month.
