She's on a roll

This girl amazes me everyday. Up until a few nights ago she was pretty much sleeping in the bed with me & Stephen. It makes it much easier since I'm still nursing her. She used to start out the night in her swing and then when she woke up to eat she would sleep in our bed the rest of the night. Last week I started putting her in her bed to take naps (instead of napping in the swing). At first she didn't like it but now she hardly fusses when I put her down. So on Saturday I started putting her in her bed at bedtime. The first couple of nights she woke up around 11p and spent the rest of the night in our bed. But the next couple of nights she slept for 8 hours straight in her own bed! Once she woke up to eat I would put her in bed with us (since we both usually fall asleep while she's nursing). Nonetheless, she is doing fabulous in her own bed!!

Since she's been spending more time in her bed she has learned to roll from front to back. So far she can only roll to the right but I'm sure she'll learn to roll left very soon. I had only seen her do this in her bed but earlier today I had her laying on the floor and walked out of the room for a second. When I came back she was on her stomach. This girl is moving fast! Before I know it she's going to be sitting up on her own.

Does Ethan sleep in his bed all night? Sam wakes up every night about 3:30 and comes in our bed. I take him back to his bed sometimes but sometime I do not know he is in our bed.
