A few days ago the big news was that Kate slept 6 hours straight one night. We didn't want to jinx it, so that news didn't get committed immediately to the blog, but I guess being superstitious just isn't that useful. Since then, it's been a monotonic decrease. The following night her longest stretch was 5 hours, then 4 and then last night just a scant 2.5. Sigh.
We've also been slogging through the legendary 6 week fussies (she'll be 6 weeks on Sunday). They haven't been terrible, but after most feedings just as she's falling asleep she wakes up with gassiness and goes through a few fits before finally getting to sleep and this shortens the amount of sleep she gets before the next time she wakes up hungry.
Today, on top of all this, she's been an insatiable feeder, indicating a growth spurt. Her bathtime weigh in confirmed it...she came in at 8 lbs 6 oz. We also measured her length the other day...it seems to be about 22 inches, though this measurement is harder for us amateurs to get right.
