MY baby smiles in her sleep


  Shakiya is my second born and as a baby she would smile at me in response to hearing her name when I would talk to her while she was sleeping.

   In this video you see her trying different ways to suck her finger. She was in the beginning stages of sucking her fingers. When she first started she would just find her fist and suck on what ever part was the closest. This was a plus for me cause she would do very early on, like in her first days. it was a plus because every time she did it i knew she was hungry and so I'd feed her. She never woke up in the middle of the night screaming cause she was hungry. I am a very light sleeper and i hear the sound of her suckling and just knew. Kiya slept through he night her very first night and every night after that! I was so lucky.

When she got more cordinated she moved on to sucking fingers. Her first combo was the "rock on" fingers, her ring and middle fingers. she has settled on her pinkie and ring finger on her left hand. every so often she will get brusies on her left side of her face cause she will either push her finger to hard on her face when she sleeps or she will keep her fingers in her mouth when she takes a fall.

      As of this post she is 1.5 years old. In the video i think she was in the 2-3 months old. I'd have to retrive the photos of from the same time as the video and check the date. I always make sure that my photos display the date. very useful with children, especially when you have more than one.
