Happy or Tired?

We're pretty sure that Louisa thinks that the opposite of happy is sleepy or sleeping. If you say something about bedtime or a nap and she doesn't want to sleep, she'll try to convince you that she's happy. I guess it makes sense since I often tell her that she must be tired when she's acting crabby. This little misunderstanding doesn't concern me, because I know she'll learn her opposites eventually, but it is funny to get a glimpse into her brain these days when she, for example, looks at open-eyed Cora and says, "happy."

Like all infants, Cora's "happy" minutes are increasing during the day and decreasing at night. Thank heaven for our first 8 hour stretch last night. Not sure how it happened, but she slept from 11 pm to 7:30 am! I won't go so far as to call her an amazing sleeper though, particularly because I'm struggling to get her to fall asleep on her own during the day. She falls asleep in the ErgoBaby carrier almost instantly, but inevitably my back gets sore and I try to take her out and lay her down in her crib. Then I tiptoe away, hoping she'll stay asleep. Most of the time my mission fails, like it just did just now mid-paragraph. Right after I typed I'm struggling to get her to fall asleep on her own during the day, she started wiggling and crying in the Ergo. I stood up, bounced a bit, then took her out and put her in her crib. Now she's crying. I'll be back to attach a few pictures :)

I'm back, eating my words. Apparently she was hungry, not tired. Makes sense, considering how much milk she slept through last night. I'm sure these intricacies are not all that exciting to you, so enough for now! Onto some pictures from the past week:
